You know marriage equality is at a tipping point when a same-sex wedding is featured on Disney’s Fairy Tale Wedding Blog. Eric Ross, the author of the marriage equality children’s book ‘My Uncle’s Wedding,’ married his partner, Mat Wood at Disneyland in Anaheim earlier this year.

The two grooms planned a magical ceremony, complete with a beautiful gazebo within Disney’s Rose Court Garden, a three-flavored Mad Hatter wedding cake, and even a ride in Cinderella’s horse-drawn carriage!

The official Disney blog featuring Eric & Mat, including 12 stunning pictures can be viewed by going to:

Eric and Mat highly recommend other LGBT couples consider having their main event at the magical theme park.

“We don’t live in Anaheim, and at first we were concerned about the potential challenges of planning a destination wedding,” said Eric Ross, now Eric Rosswood since the grooms combined their last names. “To be honest, it was the smoothest process ever.

Disney has their own wedding planners who not only helped us plan every little detail, but they also found us LGBT friendly vendors including an officiant, an invitation designer, a florist, and the most fabulous DJ ever!”

While some major organizations were caught donating to anti-gay politicians recently (Target and Best Buy), it’s great to see that Disney is open and supportive of ALL families including LGBT couples. As can be seen by the huge smiles on both of the groom’s faces, Disneyland truly is the happiest place on earth.

The ceremony was conducted by Alan Katz from So Cal Officiant -
The invitations and wedding stationary were provided by Impressions -
The photography was taken by Beverly Hills Photography - and the music and entertainment was provided by DJ Wendy -
