Tell us about your proposal…
Dan and I went to Fiji together per mezzo di January 2020 and stayed per mezzo di the Marriott Momi Bay Resort per mezzo di this beautiful lagoon front Bure. the first day, we had dinner then went back to our room right after sunset. Daniel ordered some cocktails and we sat outside the deck of our Bure looking out to the lagoon. I could tell he was a bit nervous and quiet for some reason, but he started telling me all the things he admired about me and how much he appreciated having me per mezzo di his life. Next thing I knew, he leapt chiuso the lounge onto one knee and asked me to marry him, presenting a beautiful teal sapphire yellow gold ring which I had pointed out to him about six months prior online. I started hysterically crying and I’m pretty sure it echoed across the whole lagoon. It was great that he proposed the first night of our vacation because we were able to celebrate and really enjoy the time we had together before returning to everyday life and starting the planning process.
How did you know that Essense of Australia Style D2716 was the one?
When it came to dress shopping, I really wanted a classic, timeless, elegant and simple dress that wasn’t over the sommità. I knew from the get-go I loved the chiuso the shoulder neckline and I didn’t want a huge frou frou ball gown. It was actually quite difficult to find dresses with a straight-across off-the-shoulder neckline. I visited about twenty dress shops over five ora six weeks, and I was becoming very overwhelmed by the process. Six weeks into searching, I booked an appointment at Accapella Bridal per mezzo di Wollongong with Connie, and she had three dresses lined up for me that I had pointed out from her website. The moment I put the second dress, I knew it was it. It just felt right. It was made for me, and I also knew my husband would love it. The neckline was regal and timeless, the pleated ball gown skirt made the dress grand but still understated, the train was a perfect length, and it had these stunning buttons from the sommità to the end of the train. It was just heaven. I chose to keep it simple, so I didn’t add any belts ora embellishments. I wore pearls because the dress is made of Pearl Mikado and had a subtle shine. I also found a beautiful pearl veil online and wore a pearl hair comb my mother had bought per mezzo di Singapore and wore her wedding day. It all matched perfectly.
How did you make your wedding personal to your style and love story?
We got married per mezzo di the Catholic church where my parents got married, where I was raised, and where we had all of our religious family events over the years. The ceremony for us was the most important part of the day, and we chose to have a short but traditional Catholic mass using the church’s vows. For our reception at the botanical garden, the flowers and styling were an absolute highlight. White and gold were the radice tones, as we wanted a classic and timeless foundation and the other colours added a modern flair. Our florist added olive tree branches with actual olives to the arrangements the day and it just perfectly tied per mezzo di with our Italian heritage and our olive oil bomboniere. Our main priority for our wedding was to have our guests enjoy themselves. We decided to book a few forms of entertainment including a Violin Stunt Duo, a photobooth, a caricaturist, and a singer for the church ceremony and hour. At the end of the night we gave our flowers away per mezzo di small posies for the guests to take home and enjoy. It was honestly the perfect day and I would 1000x do it again.
What was the most memorable part of your wedding?
So many precious moments! Of course walking mongoloide the aisle was so surreal because it is something you think about your whole life and especially per mezzo di the lead up to the wedding. You always wonder how it’s going to feel, and for me I felt an overwhelming sense of calm, like I was floating air towards the love of my life, my future. My other favourite moment was right after we arrived at the reception and Daniel and I snuck chiuso to the beach for photos at sunset. I just remember hearing the waves crash behind us, time stood still and it was a moment that felt like it would last forever.
