Magical Weddings (sometimes with a little help from the Magic Wand!) at Walt Disney World!

As some of you know, many of the wedding ceremonies I perform are at Walt Disney World -- I've been very fortunate to be on their "Officiant Resource List" for several years now, and when a couple is looking for a wedding ceremony that includes Disney references, movie quotes, or anything else Disney-related, I am more than happy to create their dream ceremony with them, and help to make their wedding ceremony as magical as the Disney surroundings!  

The couples who seek me, and my services, out are looking for a customized, personalized, one-of-a-kind experience for their wedding ceremony.  It's definitely not for everyone -- in fact, the majority of wedding ceremonies at Disney World are "standard format" ceremonies -- but for the couples who want lots of "Up" references in their ceremony -- or mention of Winnie-the-Pooh, or Cinderella, or Beauty and the Beast -- anything Disney-related -- we usually find that we're a perfect fit for each other!  

Of course, in addition to Disney references, there are so many other elements that can be included in a ceremony -- everything from movie references, to verses both serious and humorous, to the couple's "story," to creative Unity Ceremonies, such as blending two types of drinks together to create a new drink, which is shared by the couple -- wedding ceremonies are only limited by two things -- there must be "consent" by the couple that they want to be married, and "pronouncement" by me that they are married -- everything else is flexible!  

Something I've found that many Disney couples consider to be an extra-special touch is having me wish them "love and laughter, and a Happily Ever After!" as I wave my Magic Wand over their heads before pronouncing them married -- it's not only a wonderful Disney touch, but an extra-special treat, most often a surprise, for their guests!  Listen to the guests' reaction in this video when they realize that the couple is having the Magic Wand waved over their heads!

Of course, if a couple wants other Disney touches, we certainly can include those -- but the Magic Wand has truly turned into a "top request" for those wanting to include extra "magic" -- no matter what the couple's favorite subject, there's a way to fit it into their wedding ceremony!  

Star Wars references?  Of course -- there are so many different and wonderful way to include those -- from wishing the couple, "May The Force be with you!" to using quotes from the movie during their ceremony!


"Beauty and the Beast" wording was used in this ceremony!


Other wonderful Disney references in ceremonies have included quotes from "Lilo & Stitch," "Tangled," "The Little Mermaid," "Frozen," and, of course, "Up," which is a wonderful theme for marriage!  Whatever the couple would like, we can find a way to fit it in!

So, if you're having a Disney wedding, and want to put that extra touch of magic into your ceremony, talk to me about your ideas and dreams -- to borrow and modify a line from Walt Disney himself, "If you can dream it, you can do it" -- WE can do it -- make your dream ceremony a reality!




Until next time....

  1. Yeah it’s truly seems to be a magical wedding and loved the way you narrated everything. My cousin who has booked one of magnificent wedding venues Chicago is seeking my help in doing all arrangements and hoping to do it to perfection.
