Texas Couple Celebrate Their Royal Wedding at Walt Disney World on Good Morning America

Updated: May 11, 2018

A lucky Houston couple said their “I Do’s” this morning in front of a national television audience and every Disney fan's dream backdrop: Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World Resort.

In honor of the upcoming royal nuptials of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings and ABC’s Good Morning America teamed up on a national search for a couple worthy of a wedding with all the royal details. Alexis Preston and Jay Patel's wedding plans were washed away by Hurricane Harvey late last summer. Harvey left their Houston home flooded, ruined their car and put their dream wedding plans on hold. Alexis & Jay are exuberant Disney fans who actually got engaged at Cinderella’s Royal Table and dreamed of getting married in the Magic Kingdom. They were over the moon when they were selected from more than 3,000 couples for a regal wedding fit for royalty.

Regal was the theme of this Fairy-Tale Wedding as the bride wore a beaded Kleinfeld wedding gown and arrived princess-style in Cinderella’s Glass Coach, pulled by six white ponies. Royal trumpeters, joined by Major Domo (from Cinderella), flower girls and page boys, announced her arrival.

After a dream-come-true wedding night stay in the exclusive Cinderella Castle Suite in the Magic Kingdom, the newlyweds will be whisked off to an unforgettable honeymoon in England and France, courtesy of Adventures by Disney.

“It’s been a hard year,” Alexis told GMA. “So it’s such a blessing to get married at my favorite place in the world.”
