Christy and Darshak
Christy and Darshak met while working as teachers in the same school. Over the years their casual friendship deepened and they fell in love. After dating for more than six years they decided to take the next step and get married.
After planning a family trip to Walt Disney World, Christy and Darshak decided that would be the perfect time for them to get married. The couple contacted Intimate Weddings of Orlando about the possibility of having a little elopement, with just their children there. After some thought they felt that the elopement package was the perfect fit for them.
On that bright sunny morning Christy and Darshak gathered with their children in Celebration, Florida (the village Disney built) to have their wedding ceremony.
Rev. Glynn Ferguson, the owner of Sensational Ceremonies and an official Walt Disney World wedding officiant, worked with Christy and Darshak to create a ceremony that fit the two of them perfectly. It was both touching and personal. He gave them a homework assignment to write and tell him why they love each other
Christy wrote: Darshak is one of the calmest people I know. He never gets angry, always takes a laid back approach to any challenge he faces. Which is the complete opposite of me. He is the Ying to my Yang. Darshak is an amazing father and treats my son as if he were his own. He reads with our children, is interested in what interests them, and teaches them life lessons daily. He is a very involved father and even takes days off of work to go help in our children’s classes. He works hard at providing for us and together we are creating a beautiful life. While it was not love at first sight for me, I remember the day I met him. Never in a million years did I think this would be the man I would end up with. But the universe knew he was what I needed. It hasn’t always been easy, but it has always been worth it.
Darshak wrote: I love Christy for lots of reasons. Christy has a strong personality. She is confident. She is beautiful. She is a good partner. She is a great mother. She is an excellent teacher. I love that Christy is loud and speaks up for herself. She is not afraid of hurting people’s feelings (in a good way) and would rather express her feelings than to hold them in. I love that Christy is confident in what she does. And when she is wrong (which is not often), she admits it. I love that Christy is a planner and has a plan for our future, including our three children. She is always working toward a better future and pushes us to be better ourselves. She works to continuously improve herself, even through difficult times. I love how direct she is with our children. There is no beating around the bush or sugar-coating things. She tells us how it is, and I think that is the best lesson for our children. I love her blond hair, her tall stature, and her big nose. I remember the day I met her on the golf course like it was yesterday and thinking how beautiful she was. I am thankful for our friends for bringing us together. Plus, she has a good sense of direction (big nose joke).
Without Married by Mail this gathering would have only been a photoshoot, but Dianne with MArried by Mail was able to obtain the couple’s Florida Marriage License for them before they ever arrived in town. Rev. Ferguson brought it with him to the ceremony.
Photography for the ceremony and afterwards was provided by the very talented Edmund with Rhodes Studios Photography and Video. Edmund walked with Christy and Darshak all over Celebration, to get the photos that they wanted of their wedding day. From the park to the lakefront to the secret staircase, the magic was in the making.
Lesley with Flowers by Lesley worked her magic to create a beautiful blush pink bouquet and matching boutonniere for Christy and Darshak. The colors were rich and matched the couple’s attire perfectly.
