When Chrissie and Justin contacted Victoria with Intimate Weddings of Orlando they were really look for something special; something that would fit the four of them perfectly.  Both Justin and Chrissie have a daughter each and so they want them to be involved in every part of the wedding day.

The couple chose Paddlefish as their location for the intimate ceremony they wanted.  Three floors or decks above Village Lake at Disney Springs,at Walt Disney World the couple walked the aisle to Disney music, sad their vows, exchanged rings, and we ushered into their happily-ever-after.  
Flowers by Lesley created beautiful rose bouquets for Chrissie and the girls, made of lite pink roses and the boutonniere for Justin.  There was even a hidden Mickey in Chrissie‘s bridal bouquet.
Sugar Sugar Cake Boutique crafted a delicious two tiered chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling for the couple’s wedding cake.  It held the  “P” cake topper, perfect for Mr.& Mrs. Paradise.
Rhodes Studios captured every moment of the wedding ceremony and family shots around Paddlefish afterward.  Edmund Rhodes made sure to give them family their space, yet capture every moment with artistry and professionalism.  
Diane with Married by Mail worked with the couple months before their wedding day to get their Florida Marriage License, so they could make it legal.
Rev.Glynn Ferguson with Sensational Ceremonies worked with the couple to make a custom ceremony that fit the two of them.  The the style of ceremony, the vows, etc. everything things was crafted just for them.  He also gave them a homework assignment to write and tell him why they love each other.
Chrissie wrote, Justin is the most selfless/unselfish person I know.  He is focused on my needs and the needs of the children above his own at all times.  He is the care giver, he takes care of everyone and everything.  He is not above doing anything that is needed by anyone at anytime.

He makes me feel safe and protected, the safest I have ever felt.  His strong presence and rough exterior hides gentle side that those close get to see.

He makes me laugh and smile on a daily basis , he truly lets me know I am wanted and loved.

He worries about everything for all of us so that e can be care free.

He has taken on the role of caregiver to my daughter as if she was his own.  She adores him.

Being with Justin has allowed me to find myself and the person I am and wish to be.  He compliments me and makes me a better person.  Life is an adventure every day with him.  I look forward to each day and what is to come.

He wants our children to be prepared for the world around them and works daily to keep them grounded though they want for nothing.

Life is hard but with Justin all things are manageable.

Justin wrote, When I think about my wife to be I can honestly say that this is my first time feeling true love. I have been mistaken on many occasions but Chrissie is my “one”.   We both took very distant and confusing paths to get to this moment but I would go through every second again to know I was going to be able to spend the rest of my life with her.  It truly is a testament to the saying “better late then never”. Chrissie embodies not only the feeling of undying love but the feeling of security and my sense of being.  She makes any place or moment feel like that is where I am supposed to be no matter what the circumstances are. My love for her grows more everyday as she has nurtured and loved not only me but also my daughter Anabelle as well as her own daughter Maci.  I am at times an intimidating man with an intense personality but when I am with her she is able to allow me to feel more relaxed and at peace with myself. After all of my rambling I can sum it as follows: She is the most beautiful, strong, persistent and patient woman that I could ever know and she makes me better just being around her.  It didn’t come without a lot of life’s trials and tribulations but I caught lightning in a bottle with her and I will do whatever I can to make her realize how wonderful and amazing she is and how lucky I am to have her.  She is and will continue to be the rock of our family as we grow and share these wonderful moments together.  She had done more for me in these few years together than I could ever hope to do for her with all our days ahead. 

We wish them happiness for a lifetime and a happily-ever-after!
