The ‘Cinderella’ proposal.

Not only did it take place at Disneyland, right in front of the Sleeping Beauty castle, but Kristen and Kenan were also dressed up as Cinderella and Prince Charming when Kenan popped the question.

Every detail from a prop ‘glass slipper,’ to a ‘Disney-themed’ ring box was accounted for. The couple later used a photo taken from the day as their save the date card.

The ‘Lady and the Tramp’ rehearsal dinner.

Kristen and Kenan opted for a Lady and the Tramp themed rehearsal dinner at an Italian restaurant. Because who could forget Lady and Tramp sharing a plate of meatball pasta, peak romance for Disney fans.

The ceremony itself.

Taking place on October 19 at Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, their day was undeniably fairytale-worthy.

It began with an Up-inspired first look in which Kristen surprised Kenan with a bunch of helium balloons. The balloons were attached to a wooden ‘My Adventure Book’ box which contained a ‘grape soda pin,’ a reference to the Disney-Pixar film.

The couple walked down the aisle on a runner featuring a silhouette of Lady and the Tramp with the quote: “Today I marry my best friend.” They said ‘I do’ underneath a rose floral arch. Speaking to The Sun Kristen said Kenan and his groomsman walked out to ‘Some Day My Prince Will Come,’ from Snow White, her bridesmaids walked out to ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight from the Lion King and she made her way down the aisle to ‘At Last I See The Light’ from Tangled.

There were other subtle ‘Disney details’ too. There were quotes from Disney movies at the end of each aisle and the couple also performed a ‘sand ceremony’ in a customised Cinderella frame.

The reception.

The attention to detail was astounding. From 'Pride Rock' to 'Cave of Wonder,' each table was named after a location from a Disney film with a customised lantern to match. Guests also were also given a reception 'Guidemap' which contained details of the couple's love story and a guide to all the activities on offer, including a doughnut wall and a Disney photo wall.
