Oh Disneyland, I have never met you before this week- but over the course of these past few nights have fallen in love with you.

Here are typically where brides and grooms can say their vows or renew their vows inside an intimate garden complete with a white gazebo. It was a little easier here to sit and get to know everyone a bit better and I will admit to being one of the last few to leave the area once the reception was officially over.
