First of all, we have to shout out this awesome bride and the power of Instagram. I had been following Ariel for a little while on social media before she got engaged. She's a fitness coach who runs a ton and loves all things Disney. I basically felt like she was my soulmate. So when she got engaged I did something I NEVER do with potential clients. I slid right into her DMs. I am pretty sure I flat out asked if she needed a wedding planner even though I had never met her and never even talked to her before. We met up for champagne and macarons one night and the rest is history. We've been friends ever since! We've run races together (physically next to each other, cheering each other on, and same race, same time), text and message all the time, met up in Disney World, and of course, I helped her with her wedding day!
Ariel and Addison are the sweetest people you will ever meet. They have a super adorable meet cute (she was working at a grocery store in college, he came through her checkout line and asked her out), and are serious fitness couple GOALS. Ariel is basically a real life Disney Princess so we loved all of the subtle Disney touches she incorporated into her big day. There was the Be Our Guest seating chart, the Aristocats pin on the inside of her dress, and the Little Mermaid (Ariel!) and Prince Eric outlines on the bottoms of her sparkly pink shoes. And don't forget to check out their feature on Apple Brides too!
