|After Hurricane Harvey Ruined Their Wedding Plans, This Couple Had a Royal Wedding at Disney
Houston couple Jay Patel and Alexis Preston’s journey to the alter started with a proposal fit for a princess.
After scoring a last minute reservation at Cinderella’s Royal Castle during a 2016 trip to Disney World, Patel got caught up in the moment — the chandeliers! the fireworks outside! — and got down on one knee.
“He was like, ‘Please don’t freak out because I don’t have the ring, but will you marry me?’ And I said, yes,” Preston tells PEOPLE. “I had a pandora rings mickey mouse for a few days and then when we came home I got my actual engagement ring.”
The couple, who’ve known each other since 2007, started planning their big day last summer, and they even considered returning to Disney World for the wedding. But, “we realized it was way too expensive even to have a small group,” Preston says.
So they moved forward trying to adhere to a strict budget and incorporate cultural traditions (Patel’s parents are Hindu, while he and Preston are Christian), and landed on a church wedding with Pandora Australia Sale followed by a brunch reception in Houston in December.
When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas in August, destroying their home and car, wedding talk halted. “Once Harvey hit we stopped thinking about it all together probably until like February or March of this year,” Preston, a teacher’s aide, says. “We didn’t have flood insurance or anything.”
