    Thank you so much for your help! We're a same-sex couple so its challenging to find info, can we have a chuppah in the wedding pavilion? Do we bring our own? What about live candle flames?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Ari, and welcome back to planDisney. I see you are getting some great advice from the planDisney panelists. I know your wedding will be magical.

    I contacted Disney Fairy Tale Weddings and can confirm that they will allow you to have a chuppah inside Disney's Wedding Pavilion but you will need to work with your wedding team about the specifics with regard to the height of the four poles, material/item (many times a tallit) for the canopy, and the space available. They will also answer what personal items are accepted inside the Victorian wedding chapel. Since Disney Fairy Tale Weddings cater to different denominations you should ask about specific Jewish customs such as breaking the glass, wine (or grape juice) used during the ceremony, as well as open flames. I do know of weddings inside the Wedding Pavilion with unity candles that have been performed with the candle center stage. I recommend you reach out to Disney Fairy Tale Weddings soon so no detail gets missed.

    Remember this is your fairy tale so ask all the questions to make it one that ends happily ever after.

    Ari, I am available to you so please feel free to write me back directly with other questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
