August, 2008 in Orlando

"We had a wonderful relaxing Catholic wedding. We decided to also include our daughter in the festivities by having her baptized at the same time!
The ceremonies were at the St. Josephs Catholic Church on Alafaya. Beautiful church and comfortable!
We had a reception Luau and my parents house which made it more personable and fun. Shorts, luau shirts flip flops. Very laid back without the penguin suits! After we went to Citywalk with our out of town guests and hit a few bars. Then it was off to the Portofino Bay Hotel. It was wonderful because we did not have to drive. We took the boat and it was nice and romantic. Then off to the room! Very clean spacious and room service was quick. They even upgraded us by surprise to the Governor's suite. I strongly recommend staying there. Beautiful veiw and several pools and restaurants to choose from.
We left for our honeymoon a week later to Big Island, Hawaii. I have listed a few websites that made it extremely helpful especially if you have never been to Hawaii.
I hope this helps in any way for you future brides or grooms out there. Remember it's your day. If something goes wrong oh well as long as you two are together who cares!!"

"Beautiful church and wonderful officiant. We had our daughter get baptized at the same time and he was so very patient with her when she started getting a bit bored haha! It was comfortable and relaxing to say the least with a few laughs. If you are getting married Catholic, I definitely suggest this church. You will have to be a registered member for 3 - 4 months prior and it is a Catholic church so no exposed shoulders etc."

"http://www.internationaldriveorlando.com/ This was a wonderful link for those of you getting married in Orlando. The link provides various hotels by budget and for those families coming down provides activities they can do. Helped by people being more independent on decisions on where to stay instead of calling you. Like you aren't busy enough! haha"

Wedding Mapper

"This was a perfect and easy way to add maps through e-mail or printing them out for your invitations. Very easy instructions for printable personal maps showing all venues with directions. You were also able to create a web page to make it more personable! If you need maps do this! It will save lots of time. Time you may need to use something else. Like your dress perhaps!"
