This week, Michelle Hurtado shares the story of her wedding at Disney’s Aulani Resort & Spa just one week after it reopened following the COVID-19 shutdown. She and Michael were scheduled to be married at ‘Ama ‘Ama Patio on the fifth anniversary of their first Aulani vacation, but they didn’t find out whether their wedding could happen until three weeks before—and they had to switch from a full Wishes wedding and reception to an Escape ceremony-only event! On today’s episode, Michelle discusses how their plans changed, including swapping a full reception for dinner across the street at Roy’s and adding a second, Up-themed wedding cake! She also discusses Disney’s and Hawaii’s mask and physical-distancing requirements. And you’ll see photos from the pre-park-opening bridal portrait session she and Michael added at Walt Disney World a few months later!
