    Oakland's Lex Emmanuel and Emily Rose secretly married at Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room.

    A Bay Area couple got into serious stealth mode recently at the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Oakland residents Lex Emmanuel and Emily Rose successfully held a secret wedding in the Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland on July 19.

    Writer/editor Adam L. Brinklow of San Francisco Magazine, who served as the best man, wrote in the publication that weddings at Disneyland start at $12,000 for an "economy package."

    That cost was too prohibitive for Emmanuel and Rose, who decided instead to disguise their 25-person wedding party, including seven children and an officiant, as regular parkgoers, albeit ones slightly spiffed up for the secret occasion.
