My mind is just blown about Ashleigh and Sean's Disney wedding. Remember that Harry Potter wedding we had a while back with all those great Harry Potter decor details? This is the Disney wedding to match, y'all.

Ashleigh and Sean made (MADE! I'm still geeking out about it) these kickass Disney-themed centerpieces out of their own childhood toys and knick knacks. I can't even decide which I like best. I mean, Peter Pan was always my favorite Disney movie, but the creativity of the Little Mermaid centerpiece is impressive.

And get this, guys. The wedding party's reception table is tricked out in full Indiana Jones glory. Ashleigh even made their Indiana Jones wedding cake herself. Open that box with Sean's officer's sword, girl, GO FOR IT.

We got this message from one of the bride's friends:

As of Saturday, we've learned that Ashleigh has been diagnosed with leukemia, and her husband and her are devastated, as are all of her friends and family. We've recently set up a GoFundMe page to help cover any costs that they'll be incurring through medical bills and the lost wages from time off of work. -Jennifer

We thought we'd share the link, if anyone would like to donate.

  1. OMG – this is so incredibly beautiful!!! So many people go over the top with Disney weddings, making them very cartoony…this was elegant and beautiful. THOSE CENTERPIECES THO!! DAMN!

  2. Love all of it! This is so well done. I love how they managed to keep a Disney themed wedding from turning into a version of a child's party. It is so beautiful. And can we just talk about her shoes!? They are so sparkly and fun and I love them!

    • YES! I have seen Disney and Harry Potter weddings that just look like a kid's party. This wedding and the Harry Potter wedding referenced in the article above are whimsical instead of childish. PERFECT!

  3. OMG!!!! Hoping Ashleigh and/or Sean sees this – this is like EXACTLY what I'm hoping to create for my wedding, and I'm looking for guidance!!!! Do you still have your centerpieces??? How did you create the placecards?! OMG did you do it all DIY or w/assistance!! PLEASE contact me I'd very much appreciate it!!! @KayEHight or on FB!!

For some reason the wrong Heather Elizabeth was tagged and I would like to correct this immediately, so that our amazing photographer receives the credit she deserves. Heather was such a wonderful addition to our wedding and not only took our photos, but helped us establish memories with her and our loved ones to last a lifetime. Here is her website below. Not only is Heather's talent incredible, but she is such a personable and loving person, whom we are blessed to have as a friend. Please help spread the word and help us share her talent with the rest of the world.

    • Apologies: the URL has been corrected in the post. I'll circle up with the editors tomorrow and see if we can figure out where wires got crossed.

      • Thank you very much I really appreciate it! Thank you also for the beautiful depiction of our wedding. It really came as a shock to us! 🙂

  5. I am geeking So Hard at those fastpass place cards!!!! I can't believe they made all this themselves! I mean, planing a wedding is hard enough without also making these kick ass centerpieces. I give them the internets.
