Marco and Allyssa’s wedding was held at the beautiful Disneyland Hotel Rose Garden, here in beautiful California! Marco and Allyssa are fun, kind, respectful and wonderful people. The kind that you’d love to be neighbors or friends with. We had a blast on their engagement shoot as we snuck around book stores taking photographs depicting one of their passions – reading. But this day, their wedding day, was planned to resemble a fairly tale! It lived up to it 100%. From the beautiful sunny day, the immaculate Disneyland Hotel Rose Gardens landscape, Allyssa the princess looking bride, Marco the handsome groom and a horse drawn glass carriage to carry the bride to the ceremony…and wisk the couple away once the ceremony was complete!!
The grounds at the Disneyland Hotel Gardens are wonderfully and perfectly manicured!
The Sleeping Beauty Pavilion at the Disneyland Hotel is a wonderful place for a wedding reception!
It’s always such a special time when the parents of the bride get to spend a few moments with their beloved daughter before she is given away in marriage. Dad’s first look at his little girl, all grown up and about to marry the man of her dreams was very, very special. While the pictures I’m sharing show that initial joy, just after that Allyssa and her dad shared a very, very emotional and sweet moment. One so sweet that I teared up and so emotional that I will with hold from sharing. Regardless, it was so beautiful to see the love this family shares for one another.
Marco and Allyssa shared a “secret touch” before the ceremony, rather than see each other.
The moments the bride and groom share with those who walk them down the aisle on on of the biggest days of their lives are always some of my favorites!

The Sleeping Beauty Pavilion at the Disneyland Hotel is a super classy and beautiful setting for a wedding reception!
As if this fairly tale wedding at the Disneyland Hotel Garden and Sleeping Beauty Pavilion couldn’t end with out an over the top ending…the Disneyland Hotel upgraded Marco and Allyssa to their Adventureland Suite. Marco had me and the videographer waiting in the room so we’d be there for Allyssa’s surprise. All I can say about the room is, wow, over the top!
The perfect ending to Marco and Allyssa’s fairytale wedding love story! It was truly was a honor and privilege to photograph your wedding. Blessings to you both and please let me know when you are in town!
