When Shirley gave Tinywater a description of the ideas she had for her Disney themed wedding, we were excited. When we walked into Shirley and Elijah’s Disney themed wedding at Terra Gallery and Event space in San Francisco, we were ecstatic! The space was transformed into Shirlijahland, and it was quite a spectacular place to be that night!
All sorts of colorful candy and jellybeans filled bell jars and glass vases to create fun and interesting textures for unique centerpieces. Pennant flags marked each table like a ride or attraction to see at this Disney themed wedding.
Everything was completely customized for Shirlijahland at this Disney themed wedding! From the popcorn boxes for guests to take sweets home in, to the goodie bags shaped like a wedding dress and tuxedo, Shirley and Elijah’s little logo was everywhere!
Each guest received a “fastpass” to help seat them at their assigned tables. The couple’s designer Mickey doll collection stacked up to create the bottom three tiers of Shirley and Elijah’s Disney themed wedding cake! Each one donned a fun pattern or was decorated as a recognizable cartoon character.
Elijah’s suit had light up piping when he entered the reception. Both of these guys were absolutely hilarious! We loved their quirky personalities, complete with lime green shades and the cutest bridal accessory we’ve seen yet: mouse ears!
I am getting cravings for sweets just looking at their dessert table again. Guests could pick up candy apples, churros, red velvet cupcakes, and donut holes from ‘The Sweet Shop’ at the couple’s Disney themed wedding reception! The dessert table has been a popular trend, giving guests options when it’s time for sweets!
I love the mini bride and groom cake topper on top of their Disney themed wedding cake! No trip to Disney is complete without seeing the fireworks light up the castle at night. We get giddy when we hear a bride is thinking about a Disney themed wedding, sending us back to memories of riding rides and meeting characters at Disneyland. Now we’re hoping brides will start to come in inspired by Shirlijahland! We had the time of our lives photographing Shirley and Elijah’s wedding, and we hope you enjoyed the details as much as we enjoyed capturing their beautiful memories!
