A Riverboat Wedding

The Venue

Paddlefish is a fine dining restaurant built in the form of a majestic paddleboat. It is nestled in the heart of Walt Disney World Resort Orlando at the exciting Disney Springs. This wonderful venue features a 3rd story desk that overlooks Disney Springs and provides a most unique spot for a Riverboat wedding ceremony. From that deck, couples have a view of the lake around Disney Springs as well as the shops and of course the Aerophile Balloon. It is very spectacular!

The Ceremony

Lon Tosi of the Central Florida team of officiants of Sensational Ceremonies worked with Jeff and Chere to create a fantastic custom wedding ceremony that complimented a riverboat wedding. It included words about love that were so meaningful to them. Those words included the following phrase that really hit an emotional cord with the couple: “It was love that brought you together to this moment, to unite your destinies:. For certain that is so true. Josh and Chere are so fortunate that they have found one another. Their ceremony had a “love” theme in it that played through the entire ceremony. The following words from I Corinthians were emphasized in during the presentation. “Love never Fails”. They chose simple wedding vows that fit them perfectly. They said to each other: “With this ring I thee wed”. Short! Sweet! Simple! But, so perfect for the moment. “Create in the Chere and Josh a Love oh Lord, a perfect love. Make their two hearts as one”! Those sweet words were included in a prayer that they selected from Lon’s planning kit. It was such a beautiful and touching wedding ceremony!
