Brandon Kidd Photography sent us our next gem of a wedding and it is about as naturally gorgeous as you can get. You know those people that roll out of bed without a stitch of makeup and look positively radiant? Ya, I'm definitely not one of those lucky ducks but this wedding sooo is. It is paired down to gorgeous views, perfectly edited details and of course, one extremely happy and oh so in love couple. See it all here.
From the Bride... We wanted to showcase New Zealand (after all, we were lucky enough to have people traveling from all over the world!), so a quintessentially New Zealand location that had gorgeous scenery and excellent food and wine was key - Mudbrick Vineyard was perfect! Our families and many of the guests hired holiday houses (called a "bach" in NZ) on Waiheke for the time surrounding the wedding, so there was plenty of pre- and post-wedding celebrating. Our travel theme was an easy choice, considering the thousands of miles we've traveled to see each other over the years, the many guests traveling from all corners of the globe, and the fact that now with families in two different countries there will be plenty of travel ahead! We both love maps and old letters and parcels wrapped up with string, so we had great fun bringing it all together. Jenny fell in love with the bridesmaids' dresses at first sight, so styled things around them as well, keeping things romantic and soft with an old-fashioned feel. The trickiest part was finding the guys' ties!
