Rachael and Amon’s Fitzroy Wedding 31.03.2014

Tears of happiness, that’s how much we love this Melbourne wedding.

The stunning couple wed at the Good Shepherd Chapel where Rachael’s sister-in-law, Katie, sang ‘Fools Rush In’ as the bride walked down the aisle in a gown made by Melbourne couture designer Helen Manuel. Amon waited for her at the end of the aisle in a custom Cerulean Blue Ralph Lauren suit and black bow tie. The colourful bridesmaids picked their own dresses, while the groomsmen wore a floral print Paul Smith shirt and bow-tie and suits from their own closets. After the nuptials, the couple were whisked away in a friend’s 1975 black mustang convertible for photos.

Oli Sansom Weddings captured the charming wedding and commented, “The inspiration behind Rachael and Amon’s wedding came from their combined personality traits. The whole day mirrored the type of people that they are. Rachael being a whimsical creative type and Amon being a sophisticated traditionalist type, they wanted a wedding that felt both formal and informal at the same time.”

The lovely bride used her background in graphic design to design the silk-screened poster-style invitations, the reception decor and the overall styling for the day. She used a loosely applied floral aesthetic to achieve a little bit of cohesion in the bridal party, and let the colour do the rest of the talking.

The charming reception was held at the Fitzroy Town Hall, which encompassed both a formal and informal vibe. The bridal party decorated the steps of the Town Hall in colourful streamers as guests arrived and greeted guests with the couple’s favourite cocktails – the French 75 and the Cadillac Margarita.

The inside of the hall was adorned with unstructured bouquets of wildflowers in jars designed by florist Emily Bourne, while colourful fruit and vegetables were laid out on the tables to mimic a Dutch still-life painting. Table numbers and candles were a quick DIY project that involved painting white numbers on jars and taping parchment paper around.

As for the food, the couple chose a delicious tapas menu created by Sorella Foods. The menu including some of the couples favourite dishes like meatballs, mac & cheese, and meredith dairy goats cheese. To save a bit on catering costs, the couple also asked family and friends to make an array of delicious deserts and cakes.

Hawaii Wedding {Caitlin + Jon} 09.12.2013

We have a beach wedding fetish, which this wedding totally indulges.

Caitlin and Jon are both from Southern California, but yearned for an intimate beach wedding. The blissfully loved-up couple made their dream a reality by booking a private residence on the north shore of Kauai, Hawaii to use as their reception venue. They also booked a private house overlooking Wainiha Bay for a week of wedding festivities with family and friends.

We’re infatuated with the bride’s breathtaking lace and beaded gown, which she had altered to fit her chic style. We’re also pretty keen on the bright green and pink wedding reception décor, which we think is so fun!

Cross in the Woods Wedding {Abbi + Justin} 25.11.2013

Everything about this charming wedding works wonderfully well together (cue heavenly singing)!

Meet the beautiful couple, Abbi and Justin. They wed at Cross in the Woods, followed by their reception at Don Geyman in Indian River, Michigan, United States.

Their wedding was full of too many awesome details to list, but we’re especially enamoured with the Green and Beige colour combo accented with some Pink. There’s something so soothing, tranquil and fresh about the unexpected pairing.

Dan and Melissa Photography captured the wedding and recall; “Being a part of their day was like floating on a cloud of love. Everyone felt it. It was perfect. Watching them dance, goof off, be silly and then stare into each other’s eyes. [Their] eyes filled with love and admiration. It was splendid and we enjoyed every minute of it.”

Huge congratulations Abbi and Justin and thank you for sharing your wedding pictures with One Stylish Bride.
