I love, love, LOVE wedding films. They make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and always, always make me shed a tear or two. And when they are as adorable as this one from Noelle Williams Photography, I can’t help but smile from ear to ear. It’s why I thank my lucky stars my job is to share it with all of you – so sit back, hit play, and get ready for an onset of happiness…

I’m pretty sure if I was invited to this wedding captured by Peta Mazey, I would still be there. Because there is no way I’d ever want to leave. Not only was it hosted at the Groom’s gorgeous family farm, but it is overflowing with personal touches crafted by this duo and their talented family. I’m talking personalized, hand made spoons for each guests – that level of personal. From the dress to the flowers to the cake and right down to the food they ate, this talented group of folks created not just a lovely wedding, but one with a whole lot of heart. See it all here.

From Peta Mazey…Chloe and Matt’s Taupo, New Zealand wedding was a total DIY showcase, with nearly every detail being overseen by the couple and their friends and family. The wedding was held on Matt’s family dairy farm, with an addition to a hay barn being made to make for the perfect reception venue. The ceremony was officiated by Chloe’s grandmother and Matt’s family minister. Matts sister hand made the personalized spoons for each guest, the boys hunted all the meat for the day. One of Chloes sisters designed the dress and her school friend made it. Chloe even baked her own cake and decorated it with flowers from Matt’s mother’s garden. Chloe’s friend Liora from Toodles Noodles was the head designer/decorator and other friends pitched in to do flowers and hair. The list goes on and on… This couple have some talented loved ones. Beyond all the pretty details it was a day full of joy and love and fun, reflective of this awesome couple. The cricket was a hit, with the bride even having a bat in her wedding dress!

I spend my day dreaming. Dreaming of the most perfect details, of the sweetest love stories, and dreaming of the celebrations that bring them all together. So when I come across a wedding like this one from Sutherland Kovach Studio - a wedding I swear is prettier than I could even dream up – I make sure to cozy up real close. And when its all topped off with a Jenny Packham gown that just happens to be too pretty for words – we’re left with a wedding that’s being filed under my favorites for sure. See so much more here.

From Sutherland Kovach Studio… Rebecca and Mat decided to fly to Rebecca’s hometown of Auckland, New Zealand for a summery wedding in December at the gorgeous Mantells of Mt Eden. They chose to do a first look before the actual ceremony to maximize their time with their photographers and their guests. Mat waited for Rebecca on a secluded beach, with an amazing view of Auckland’s renowned Rangitoto Island. At the wedding venue guests mingled to sweet sounds of jazz music and sipped on special concoctions of sentimental cocktail mixes. Rebecca and Mat put a lot of thought and time into creating a wedding with details that everyone could interact with on the day. A gorgeous time capsule in the form of a vintage suitcase was created to hold a recipe for longevity and rekindling when it is opened. Guests were encouraged to write special messages at the reception and Mat and Rebecca exchanged love letters along with their vows which went into the time capsule along with their favourite wines and other treasured memories of their journey so far.
