Today, Aleshia Valance shares the story of her ceremony at the Wedding Pavilion, cake and Champagne celebration at the Grand Floridian Convention Center, and reception at Paddlefish. She and Cameron originally planned to follow their ceremony with an evening reception at California Grill. But when Disney canceled all fireworks shows due to the pandemic, Aleshia and Cameron decided to switch to brunch at Paddlefish. In this episode, Aleshia shares where she saved (floral and décor) and where she splurged (Cinderella’s Glass Coach) for her wedding and offers her top advice. She also discusses why she added an appearance by Mickey and Minnie at the last minute, even with the COVID restrictions still in place—and how glad she was that she did!
