The most epic thing I’ve ever seen folks – in my whole life. Kimberly and Ronnie know how to blow minds. An amazing Game of Thrones inspired wedding in the most magical place on earth!
If you’re just stumbling upon this, this is the second day of wedding festivities for these two in Disney World – where they were married on 9/17 in the Grand Floridian’s Wedding Pavilion. And just because, if you want to see their full costume rehearsal day – it’s right HERE. A perfect preface to this totally different, yet amazing wedding celebration below.
Kimberly and Ronnie’s attire + their entire ceremony was based around their love for Game of Thrones. Inspiration for her hair, crown, cloak and entire nuptials were taken from the series, and done to perfection. Bridesmaids adored custom dresses by Kate Pankoke, representing modern day Disney Princesses. Groomsmen even had Star War socks – there wasn’t a detail spared.
There’s so much to this magical day, let’s just go ahead and jump right in.
All of the bridesmaid dresses were designed to represent the modern day version of the Disney Princesses they were the day before. The details put into this were extraordinary, and spot on. Such a unique, cohesive collection that I know was everything Kimberly could have dreamed. Crowning of the queen – and she definitely was one – even *slightly* in character all day – as she should.
When you can’t bring your beloved dogs with you, this is what you do. *Makes note for self for my own future vacations.*
A suit made for a king, complete with a cloak and sword. Kimberly and Ronnie had two amazing photo shoots in the morning with their first look at some pretty amazing spots throughout the parks with another pair of talented Disney Photographers. Overall, there were 4 of us capturing this day along with 2 videographers. So, you’ll see my personal, journalistic approach here and I’m sure so many more coming from Disney that I CANNOT wait to see. I’ll probably watch the wedding video more than the bride and groom themselves. :)
What’s a royal wedding without miniature horses, and a glass Cinderella carriage?! This was a total secret. Right before the ceremony she slipped away and changed into this amazing gorgeous, dramatic gown.
Their wedding programs even included an image from them at Rehearsal the day before – to show their amazing transformation. The Royal Court indeed!
Ronnie walked down to the IMPERIAL MARCH from Star Wars. I almost passed out from excitement. Showstoppers! The door swung open in perfect rhythm to reveal Kimberly – in her secret dress – walking down the isle to the Game of Thrones Theme Song. *cue goosebumps* “You may now cloak the bride and bring her under your protection.”
Cloaking of the new queen – every part of their vows represented the House of Jackson and the House of Puno joining together.
Again, a perfectly dramatic entrance of their rings, introduced by trumpets and this guy!
Let it be known that Kimberly of House Jackson and Ronnie of House Puno are one heart…”
And now tied together, one heart and one soul.
“I am his and she is mine.”“With this kiss, I pledge my love.” Long May They Reign! Ribbon Wands and Flower Petal Cannons! Each table at their breathtaking reception had a theme – Cinderella, Anna and Elsa, Rapunzel, etc. Also held at the Grand Floridian in the ballroom – it was nothing short of spectacular. I feel like I’m overusing the word epic in this post, but nothing else quite fits. THIS EPIC first dance. Ever seen a wedding cake like this? Yeah, me neither!
And what’s hologram-ish wedding cake without a custom topper of Ronnie and Kimberly and their beloved dogs.
After dinner, these fairy godmothers entertained us with a surprise fashion show, highlighting each of the bridesmaids and their gowns! I was there, and I am still surprised with the details writing this blog. Kate, the designer of these gowns and the AMAZING bridesmaids. Can’t tell that they were fun at all, huh? They call each other Cookie + Cupcake. :)
A guest at the wedding is a professional dancer in Las Vegas. Ever heard of the show, America’s Best Dance Crew?! ^^^^^
ROYALS ON POINT. After the reception, a private dessert party and fireworks overlooking The Castle. It was as magical as it comes – to the point I’m speechless, or can’t put into words what I really want to say. So from the bride and groom themselves: ” We have worked so hard to plan a fairy tale wedding, we will work just as hard to plan a fairy tale marriage. Fairy tales do come true….”
