Vintage Garden Party Wedding

This bride is stunning.  I mean, I’m almost certain I have never seen a bride this beautiful, and at the hands of the talented All Things Girlie Hair & Makeup Artistry, well… she’ll take your breath away.  And don’t forget about her dapper groom, who is smiling so brightly in every.last.image captured by Milk Photography, you can’t help but feel the HAPPY.  See it all right here.


From the Bride… After two months of dating, my husband asked my parents for my hand in marriage. They said no, and to wait until a year to ask again. But after another four months he couldn’t wait and asked my parents again – they said yes. A week later, after returning from a holiday in Noosa, Val picked me up from the airport and told me we where going to Mt. Buller for the night. Once we settled it was around 10pm and he was in a huge rush to walk up the mountain. After we reached the top of the first run there was a freshly groomed area, which I found out later he had organized. He said this is perfect to do a snow angel, which I had never done and was so excited to do. We both lay next to each other and did our snow angles and as he pulled me up he went back down and he was on one knee – and before opening the box I said yes. We found out five weeks later that I was pregnant.

We choose Campbell Point House, as it was a little different to the other wedding we had been to in the past as well as being very private and exclusive. We had a specific caterer and wedding designer that we wanted to use and other venues were too restrictive.  We also wanted to make a week of it to spend time as a couple and with our bridesmaids and grooms and have dinners and cocktail parties leading up to it. Some guests were from interstate and international so having the venue for a week allowed us to catch up with everyone on separate days without having to say hi to EVERYONE on the wedding day.

There wasn’t really any inspiration as I’m an interior designer and wanted everything (ha-ha), so going by my dress and the venue the team from the style co and the caterers from Tommy Collins we came up with a vintage garden party with a modern flair. As a duo, Tommy Collins Catering and The Style Co worked amazingly well together and really took our requests and taste to heart and expressed them with ease.

We had a very traditional ceremony coming from a Catholic background and kept with tradition through the ceremony, but the reception was one big party with share plates of amazing food and dessert accompanied by an espresso martini fountain!

The day was so quick and such a blur, but our most vivid memory we both share was when I was walking down the aisle, and our first dance, which we had had two months of dance classes to prepare for.

Our favorite capture of the day was the groomsmen jumping in the pool before the wedding and our first kiss. But the wedding video by Andrew Harrington was amazing and represented the day in a beautiful and personal way that we get to relive the day every time we watch it.

Traditional Perth Wedding

It’s crazy to think that you could literally grow up thousands of miles away from someone and still meet and fall in love.  That Cupid is a tricky devil, but once these two sweeties met (she’s from Australia, he’s from Nebraska), it was sooo obviously meant to be.  See their breathtaking (+ crazy heartwarming) wedding captured by Dave & Charlotte Lifestyle Photography in the full gallery.

From the Bride… Even today it feels like a miracle that Josh and I were able to meet and fall in love. We grew up two worlds apart – I, in a small West Australian farming community and Josh in Hooper, Nebraska. Somehow, our paths crossed 5 years ago while I was in my senior year of college, and the rest is history!

Although we live in the US we knew we had to have our wedding in beautiful Perth. Planning our day from so far away was a challenge but we had amazing help from Professional Misconduct as well as family and friends. I always knew my wedding would be under the stars on a hot summers night so hosting the reception on the patio of Lamont’s Bishops House was an easy choice for us. Not to mention the incredible food we enjoyed including a Wagyu beef main course. A highlight of the night was a surprise lobster starter course. All 50 lobster tails were supplied by my uncle, who is a fisherman off the coast of West Australia! The wedding cake also needs a special mention as it was made from scratch by my mother – a beautiful 5 tier cake lovingly decorated with lace details and a cascade of handmade flowers. My brother created a magnificent double-door entry for us using doors from our farm house where we grew up. I’ll never forget how I felt walking through them into the reception area and seeing all of our family and friends, many of whom had travelled internationally to be there for us.

Josh has known Pastor Chuck for 10 years so it was important to us that he was part of our day. He officiated a very emotional ceremony at Wesley Uniting Church with many laughs along the way – especially when he confessed to the crowd that he did not have a passport the week before the wedding! It meant so much to us to hear afterward from friends and family how moved they were during the ceremony. From Josh’s tears as I walked down the aisle to our prayers after lighting the unity candle I think it was evident to everyone the depth of our love for each other.

From the Church we were whisked away to King’s Park, a gorgeous public park in the middle of Perth City with a stunning backdrop of the Swan River. We were driven by GranTourismo who went above and beyond to help make our day even more special. From providing an iPod and dock for music during photos, to making sure our glasses were always topped up, these guys did so much more than hold open doors and drive cars! Lastly, our photographer Dave from Dave&Charlotte Lifestyle Photographers kept us relaxed and in the moment as he worked his creative magic from behind the camera. Without a doubt, one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding was hiring Dave&Charlotte to capture every moment.

From seeing Josh in his custom Henry A. Davidson suit at the Church to the way my Pnina Tornai dress swayed across the floor during our first dance there is nothing I would change about our day. It was more than I ever imagined and the most unbelievable way to start our lives together.
