Garrett Smith and Jason Bitner were engaged at Disneyland two years ago after a beautiful proposal. This week, the two tied the knot as their favorite Disney characters: Buzz Lightyear and Woody.
The couple from Chicago dressed up as the iconic characters from Pixar’s 1995 hit movie, Toy Story. They decided on those characters because of the song they wanted for their first dance- “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from the Toy Story soundtrack. On the topic, Bitner said:
“Garrett wanted to dress as Buzz and Woody because ‘You’ve got a friend in me’ is one of his favorite Disney songs, and has known for a long time he wanted that to be the song he danced to as his first dance. So of course [I] had to be Sheriff Woody. Both characters are reminiscent of each of our personalities. About a year out from the wedding we started to get more serious about the wedding. That’s when we were like this is our special day we should do what we want and have the things that we like. We love Halloween and we throw an elaborate themed party every year. We also enjoy Disney-bounding in our everyday and cosplaying at comic cons and the renaissance faire. So it was a logical decision to combine all of these things for our wedding.” – Pink News
The best part is, their parents joined in on the costumes too, dressing up as characters from The Little Mermaid, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Peter Pan.
