We have had an absolutely absurd amount of posts go up today! The wedding was just so pretty and the bride was sweet enough to share so many details, I wanted to make sure that we got it all in. Here is a last look at the beautifully photographed, by the wonderfully talented Lauri Levenfeld, New Zealand wedding…
From the bride…
At the reception and dinner, we wanted to showcase the very best NZ and Waiheke Island ingredients and highlight produce from the winery’s vegetable garden. We served the Mudbrick’s own award winning Rose, Chardonnay and Syrah, as well as a special wine from Anna’s family vineyard in honor of Anna’s late brother Kiet who planted the grapes as a boy.
Okay, I thought that for this next set, I should just let the pictures and the bride speak for themselves!
The Mudbrick Restaurant and main dining room, where we hosted our reception, has a wonderful ambience, and has been described as “one of the most romantic places on earth”. The main dining room offers the most spectacular sea views throughout the wedding dinner overlooks Waiheke’s rolling vineyards and Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf. The restaurant has French doors that completely peel back and a roof that opens to the stars. We added only candlelight, white lillies, and white covered chairs to compliment the natural traditional beauty of the Mudbrick venue.
More to come from the FABULOUS Lauri Levenfeld of Zoom Photography.
We are going a little late today for a couple of reasons…one, Lauri Levenfeld is a San Francisco based photographer so I wanted to give all of you West Coasters something new to read later in the day than usual and two, there were SO many gorgeous photographs, I simply couldn’t edit them down!
Here is a look at the stunning reception that Anna and James threw….
It’s simple, it’s effortless, it’s completely chic. Here are a few more bits of eye candy…
More to come!
