Being Carly, Disney

Our Anniversary and Our Wedding Story

Today is our eight year wedding anniversary and I marked it by doing something a little bittersweet. For the last nine years I’ve run a blog about Disney weddings, which started when I was planning our wedding at Walt Disney World, but for the last three or four years I really haven’t been able to put my heart into it. So, I spent the weekend clearing the blog out to get it ready to be deleted. I’ll miss it, but I didn’t want it to sit around getting stale.

The fun part about this is that I had the chance to go back and read a ton of posts from 2008 and 2009 including my ridiculously detailed recap of our wedding trip. How detailed? Well, let’s just say if you wish you were at my wedding, you can read this and feel like you’re there. In fact, you could probably read this and then remember the event even better than people who actually were there!

    I’m sad to hear that you are ending the blog but I understand the reason for your decision. Your blog helped me realize a Disney wedding was the right choice for us and helped us plan our event. Before finding your blog I thought a Disney wedding would be too expensive. I certainly wouldn’t have thought of having the reception in the Living Seas or hosting a fireworks viewing party. Thanks for all of your work over the years and I wish you the best!
