Disney World's Animal Kingdom

If you have been following along my wedding series, you know our honeymoon was spent at Disney World. It was my first time going to Animal Kingdom and our first stop of the many Disney parks. I enjoyed Animal Kingdom! The animals are spectacular. Going on the safari made me feel like we had not gone to Disney, but to Africa for a safari tour. I had never been near animals that were not enclosed. You would think it would be scary to be near a lion, however it was thrilling!
Animal Kingdom has a major roller coaster, Mount Everest. You encounter a huge surprise on the ride..I'll keep it secret for you to find out on your trip! I don't get scared on most roller coasters, however I'll admit I dug my nails into my husband's arms and screamed on this ride.
We saw a couple of fun shows: Festival of Lion King and Finding Nemo. The shows were incredible. So full of musical talent, puppetry, and magnificent costumes.
I could not leave without watching the parade and meeting some of the Disney characters. I know this is for 8 year olds, but I have never met them! My goal was to meet them! My sweet husband stood out in the 102 degree weather in line to meet them with me. I met some of my favorites: Pocahontas, Dug and Russell, Chip n Dale, Donald Duck, Mickey and Minnie, Winnie the Pooh, and Tigger. My childhood dreams have come true! Ha!
Keep following along! Next posts up will be Epcot and Magic Kingdom!

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in.

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

Tips on taking a toddler to Disney World

I got some funny looks when I told people we were taking Haylee to Disney. I know some would say she is too small among many other things, however we did it! Did we get lucky? Maybe! She was the perfect age to ride the rides and meet the characters. Some people thought Disney would not have small rides for children, but maybe surprised that it's the best place for toddlers! The trip was so worth it! Haylee smiled and laughed the entire time. We made so many great memories and we can't wait to go back! If you're here to read all the details on how or what we did at Disney World then stick around!
What we packed:

-Disney clothes. We made our own shirts for the trip. Haylee wore a shirt with Minnie Ears and her monogram. It cost us only $12.  I also bought our Mickey ears from the Disney Store Outlet at the mall on sale for $7! They are around $20 at the parks. You could also purchase Disney character shirts at your local retail store. Buying shirts at Disney World can run y…
