So excited that we were able to again relive the memories of the most special day of our lives recently at Walt Disney World Resort’s Grand Florida Resort and Spa by taking Alessa’s beautiful gift she received during our engagement weekend.
I cannot express how amazing our week in Las Vegas was back in February. Even though there were some hiccups and stressful happenings, it was the most incredible and memorable time of my life. Needless to say, I was a little nervous, mostly because I wanted it to be very special. There was a lot of planning that went into that week and some things that made it very special as well.
One of those special moments was giving Alessa a truly special gift. If you watched the streams, the proposal and theme of the week was her love (and mine) of Beauty and the Beast. We are Disney lovers at heart and Alessa loves everything Belle, from knowing all of the songs to Disney bounding in her own special way. I knew that this was going to be at the heart of everything, even though we were in Las Vegas, as Disney people, no matter where we go, everything is compared to or inspired by Disney. From Alessa’s engagement ring, a Belle inspired Disney ring, to the Eiffel Tower Restaurant for the proposal, I wanted to mix her love of Disney with our Italian heritage.
At the Bellagio, we had a fountain view. If you watched the stream on our last day in Vegas, we brought you into our room. Filled with gold, red and orange, it was so rich and elegant, better than either of us could have ever imagined. She was so surprised when I told her we were checking in there for our last two nights and was so happy that I had booked the fountain view room in advance since we were not able to see the fountains from the Eiffel Tower Restaurant due to weather.
But, in the room, sitting on the table was something that room even more special. From our friends at The Forever Rose, was a beautiful gold plated rose, yes, a real rose dipped in 24K gold. Now, when I saw this rose, I instantly fell in love with it and I knew this would be perfect for the occasion. I thought of rose petals in the room, scattered around which is awesome as well as having roses delivered to the room. But real flowers do not last and we could not take them on the plane back home.
The Enchanted Rose, which is what this is called, is a fully dipped rose, preserved by hand to last forever, set on top of a wooden base incased in a glass dome, inspired by Beauty and the Beast. When I reached out to them to order the rose, I knew exactly what I wanted. I was so shocked when they reached back out to me and said that they would love to commission a special rose just for the channel and made the super special and beautiful Spokesmayne Sparkle Rose. Red with gold edges, with gorgeous sparkles dancing on the petals, this rose is magnificent. I was more than I could have imagined and am truly honored with their gesture. Handcrafted and created in Pennsylvania, they have many different colors and you can purchase them by the rose or in multiples as well as one of the Enchanted Rose Collection.
They shipped the rose to the Bellagio (as it was a surprise and I was having a heart attack trying to get the ring packed and unnoticed) and they had it packaged so well and secure, arriving beautifully. Set up in our room, it looked stunning and I was so excited when she saw it I just got caught up in the moment and forgot to get her reaction on camera.
For that reason, just recently as our schedules have been crazy, we had the opportunity to get some awesome pictures of The Enchanted Rose at the most perfect spot at Walt Disney World Resort, the Enchanted Rose at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Being able to get some amazing shots of this beautiful piece and the backdrop of the room was magical. It brought back so many memories for us and we realized that having a beautiful work of art like this, will give us continued joy and memories for a lifetime. This is why you need to check out The Forever Rose and look into getting you someone special this amazing gift.
I have to say though, it is beautiful and will be something that we will have forever, commemorating this amazing week and the true enchantment of Disney fairytales and magic we felt in Las Vegas.
I absolutely recommend checking out their site and if you are looking for something out of the ordinary and very special for your very special person, go to The Forever Rose
