Disney Hosts a Gothic Prohibition-Era Wedding

If hearing “Disney Fairy Tale Wedding” makes you visualize whimsical floral arrangements, the famous Disney wedding pavilion, Disney princess bridal gowns from Allure Bridals, or a regal horse and carriage for the bride and groom, then you’re not alone!

Most people choosing a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding really are opting for the ultimate fairy tale happily ever after — but one couple recently chose a Disney wedding with a very different aesthetic and theme!

Brides & Weddings has released the details about a one-of-a-kind “gothic, industrial and prohibition” wedding. The bride and groom’s wedding vision was specifically focused on a Gothic, prohibition-era aesthetic, and according to the blog post, “they absolutely nailed it”!

Take a look at some of the photos from this elegant, moody, and romantic affair that featured a touch of vintage flair (and a few subtle nods to Disney Weddings along the way).

The wedding and reception took place at Coronado Springs Resort, with special photo opportunities in the Resort’s Dahlia Lounge after the Coronado Springs Resort manager opened up the lounge just for the wedding party. The Disney groom and his groomsmen also got lots of wonderful photos from all over the Disney Resort!

The Disney bride wore a glamorous black ballgown, and her wedding makeup was actually done by famous Goth influencer Dre Ronayne (a makeup artist who was flown in specifically by the bride for her wedding day)!

Red roses and red rose petals were featured heavily during the Gothic wedding ceremony, and the ceremony was followed by a reception at the Edison restaurant. During the reception in the Edison’s 1920’s-themed lounge, the Disney bride and groom had “a champagne lady wearing over 100 champagne flutes”, “a wedding couple in stilts”, a live band playing, and a “burlesque style trapeze show”.

This wedding was definitely one-of-a-kind in its aesthetic and its style, especially for a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding!
