More Wedding Details After a Shaky Day - Location, Location, Location

The great thing about living in Southern California is that when we have earthquakes we can use them as excuses for nearly everything. So you see, that's why there were no posts yesterday, we had an earthquake.

Working with Disney up until now has been a really great experience. They know their business well, and it seems like their wedding operation runs really smoothly. Disneyland definitely does not have all the choices that Disney World does, but what they do have is really nice.

Usually Disneyland has two ceremony locations, one at the Grand Californian Hotel and one at the Disneyland Hotel. Unfortunately because of construction going on for the new Disney Vacation Club Villas at the Grand Californian they are not using that site, which is a shame because from the pictures I have seen it looks lovely.

Instead we will be getting married at the Rose Court Garden at the Disneyland Hotel. It has an amazing gazebo and is surrounded by over 800 rose bushes (so they claim, I'm not going to bother to count them). It's an amazing space, and although the currently unavailable Ceremony Site in the Grand Californian seems more masculine and in the craftsman style I like so much, I would probably choose the Rose Court Garden only for the topiaries.

It's going to be an amazing day in an amazing setting. I don't know if you have all deduced what a big Disney fan I am, but this is like a dream come true. I've always wanted to stay at the Disneyland Hotel, and now I have the perfect excuse to. More to follow on our reception site at a later date.
