last month we were at the magic kingdom wading through the massive crowds, looking at all the beautiful disneyland christmas decorations, and thinking how cool it would be to see a disneyland wedding with fireworks. btw, it would be awesome! (hint hint for all you couples still thinking of which venue to choose for your wedding.)
anywho, we really wanted to go in the haunted mansion because they had just converted it over to the jack skellington haunted mansion holiday. as we approached the mansion we saw that the line to get in was INSANE so we let out a collective sigh of despair and lost all hope to go in. just then there was a flash of light and ashley and allison floated down in front of us like magical disneyland fairies. they asked if we would like to go in with them. we paused, did a double-take at the line, and wondered just what kind of pixie dust these girls were carrying. moments later we were compelled to squeek out an overjoyed yes as they exclaimed “in our hands we wield the power of walt disney himself, and an extra set of fast passes.” :)
after going through the haunted mansion holiday we thanked ashley and allison with gusto, but their tank of kindness was nowhere near empty. they asked us to join them on kim’s favorite ride at disneyland, the indiana jones adventure. i pinched myself, kim looked at her watch to see if it was already christmas, and rain nearly stepped on her own jaw. are there seriously still people on this planet that are this nice? YES! and their names are ashley and allison.
fast forward a week or so. we receive an email from ashley. she had been on our website and loved our work. as it turns out, ashley and allison’s mom had told them that all she wants for christmas this year are some photos of the two of them. ashley and allison told her ok and had planned to take their point-and-shoot out and take pictures of each other. then they met us.
are you seeing the big ol’ slice of fate pie here?
rather than going with their previous plan, ashley and allison drove down to san diego and met up with us to make a little christmas surprise for their mom.
my name is in the bible. does that count? :)
as we were shooting, ashley and allison let us know that they are big fans of new moon and the twilight saga.
i, however, am still undecided on whether i would like to be on team edward or team jacob. :)
allison loves to read. ashley loves her iPod. it’s a good mix.
we decided to have a little fun with the whole twilight concept. even Rain threw us a couple ideas.
bella has nothing on ashley
thank you so much ashley and allison. we had a lot of fun with you both at disneyland and during your photo session. we wish you and your ohana a very merry christmas. hope your mom loves these.
