What’s more life-giving to a new marriage than the Tree of Life? Disney just announced that it is now offering weddings at the iconic Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom in Disney World as part of its Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons package.
The Tree of Life is one of the new venues available as options to couples scouting wedding locations at the iconic theme park. Those who want to marry in front of the looming attraction won’t need to worry about backdrops and lush greenery since all of that (plus enchanting, exotic floral arrangements) fill the surrounding space.
The baobab tree sculpture, which was birthed in the 1998 Pixar film A Bug’s Life, stands at 145-feet tall and includes all types of intricate carvings.
“We believe that every fairy tale love deserves a storybook backdrop,” a rep for Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings and Honeymoons tells The Knot in an exclusive statement. “The Tree of Life is a breathtaking location and we are looking forward to celebrating many of our couples love stories in front of the iconic landmark for years to come.”
Disney also announced that several additional spots are now open to couples who wish to marry at a Disney theme park including the Chinese Theatre at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The locale, of course, is more glamorous and glitzy for those couples who want an extra unique venue for their wedding day.
Finally, the company has also opened its pine forest—750 acres worth—for more adventurous couples who want the open-air feel at the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. According to the release, the natural surrounding includes a view of the Seven Seas Lagoon.
However, for those who want a traditional and classic Disney wedding, Disney’s Wedding Pavilion offers direct views of Cinderella’s Castle. The venue itself includes vaulted ceilings and can hold up to 250 guests– because what’s a Disney wedding without some magic for the entire family?
