"Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings: Holiday Magic" Couples
Greg and Melanie (Wedding at Disneyland Park)
We first met Greg and Melanie in May of this year after the couple got engaged at Disney's Animal Kingdom on the Freeform special "Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings." They have been together for four years and, although it wasn't exactly love at first sight, Greg and Melanie ended up falling head over heels for each other. The single dad of a 10-year-old daughter finally popped the question and the couple will be married at Disneyland Park in Anaheim.
Joe and Dominique (Wedding at Walt Disney World Resort)
Joe and Dominique are the quintessential New York couple. He's an officer with the NYPD, she's a part-time substitute school teacher and also helps her dad out in the family restaurant. After dating for five years, the couple is ready to tie the knot in the same location of their first official vacation as a couple, Walt Disney World Resort. Nuptials fit for a king and queen, Joe and Dominique's large Italian family will also be treated to a surprise musical performance. It has been Dominique's dream since she was a little girl to get married at Disney's Wedding Pavilion adjacent to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and her dreams are about to come true.
