COUPLE'S SPOTLIGHT: JENNIFER + BRYAN
I remember meeting Jennifer and Bryan when they first came to tour The Lighthouse not only because Jennifer had the brightest red hair that reminded me of Ariel from Disney's The Little Mermaid, but because of how friendly, polite, kind, and trusting they were towards me and to each other. I could tell they have a bond that is unbreakable, one that is built over years and years of friendship and love. When I got to know them better, I soon found out that (1) Jennifer LOVES Disney and (2) the pair had, in fact, known each other for years and became best friends long before they became boyfriend and girlfriend and eventually got engaged.
In just two weeks, these lovebirds will celebrate the start to their new adventure as Mr. and Mrs. and we cannot wait to watch it all unfold. Until then, we share their engagement story and *spoiler alert* it was at Disney ;)
How did you and your significant other meet?
(in her words)
We met in high school and were best friends until we finally started dating years later
What's the proposal story?
I am a huge Disney fan and he knew how much I love Disney so instead of proposing in front of the castle he did it in front of the Carthay Theatre restaurant in California Adventure because it was much more meaningful since it was where Walt Disney got his big break. He had a cast member take our photos with his phone and she was not in on the engagement plan and didn't realize he put the phone on record to capture the moment so she was just as surprised as I was! They ended up taking us afterwards to get custom bride/groom mickey ears made which made us late for our dinner reservation at the Carthay restaurant but when we told them what had happened they put us in a private room and gave us a complimentary dessert and reserved seating for the world of color show that evening. It really was the best day ever!
What made you decide to book The Lighthouse for your big day?
We chose the Lighthouse because of the beauty of the venue and also because we were able to do what we wanted and incredible staff to work with us along the way.
What are you most looking forward to about your wedding?
Looking forward to sharing this special moment with family and friends but most importantly to be bonded with my best friend for life.
I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see how Jennifer and Bryan intertwine Jennifer's love of Disney into their special day. It is certain to be magical!
