Elegant Fairy Tale Wedding at the Castle Hotel - Cara and Ryan

Cara and Ryan dreamed of an elegant fairy tale wedding, and the Castle Hotel in Orlando, Florida, was the perfect place to make their dreams come true! Each of them had a special pin included in their details - Cara's was Cinderella, and Ryan's was Darth Vader. Cara's beaded, full-skirted gown was fit for a princess, and she sure looked like one when she was in it! Her bridesmaids looked like luxury themselves with fitted, floor length, gold sequined dresses. Cara and Ryan's ceremony on the rooftop overlooked the city, and the tops of the Castle Hotel's towers framed the aisle. After some gorgeous sunset portraits, the newlyweds joined their guests for the reception. 

Long, family-style tables filled with lush greenery made the room look like a regal banquet! Pops of gold and purple filled the space, and so did plenty of unique touches. A donut tower sat in place of a wedding cake, with a groom's "cake" of Oreos next to it (topped with, of course, Darth Vader). While rock candy doesn't normally grow on trees, it did at this wedding! A candy buffet offered up all the sweets you could ever crave, complete with a gold tree dripping with sugary crystals. Check out more fun details in Cara and Ryan's photos!
