Karen was born in Massachusetts and primarily grew up there with a few pit stops along the way. Her first trip to Walt Disney World did not occur until she was 14 years old when she went with her family to the Polynesian Resort. It was not until years later when she returned with her children and husband (for their first trip) that the real obsession began. Returning to the lobby of the Polynesian brought back all the memories she had forgotten, and ignited a Disney passion in her family's life. Karen currently guest blogs for The Disney Driven Life as their wedding expert and is co-founder of her blog, The Best Friends Guide To.


Located directly next door to the Wedding Pavilion at the Grand Floridian is a recreation of Franck’s Bridal Studio from the popular movie “Father of the Bride”. Anything and everything wedding related can be found here, all housed in a beautiful, relaxing, Victorian setting. Future Disney brides can meet here with a wedding specialist to plan out all aspects of their big day. From the flowers to cakes, music, decorations, guest books to linens…it’s all here.

What a great way to see actual elements that can be incorporated into your ceremony or reception, while listening to beautiful classical music in a tranquil setting. Sample some flavors of cake (YUM!) or take some photos at Picture Point to see just how beautiful a view it really is.

So shake that wedding planning stress off and head over to Francks’ Bridal Studio for their open house on Saturday August 28th from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. , Disney’s Wedding Pavilion – 4401 Floridian Way, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830
