Interview with the Bride

It took 11 months to plan for our wedding day. We had a total of 114 guests and our nieces and nephews were the only children that attended.

I gifted my bridesmaids with their shoes, earrings, a bracelet, their bridesmaids’ gown and a personalized hanger. The Groomsmen received their shoes, belt, bow tie, a watch and a stubby holder as thankyou gifts.

I chose my wedding dress because of the beautiful lace detail.  I started looking for my wedding dress 11 months before the wedding.

Jarrad wore a navy blue suit with brown shoes and a black bow tie.

The theme I chose for my wedding was an elegant style. I decided to have white flowers with green foliage for my bouquets and display flowers. The venue was stunning so I wanted to keep it simple. I kept the ceremony and reception decorations the same as my flower theme. I like to have everything matching.

We both fell in love with the location for our ceremony and knew it was the place for us. It has a beautiful island and deck with amazing backgrounds. Our ceremony began at 4pm, followed by pre-dinner drinks. The reception began at 6pm.

We both wrote our own vows and Jarrad’s sister performed a beautiful reading at our ceremony. We liked the way that our celebrant was not too serious, and brought a fun and relaxed feel to our ceremony.

While we went off for our Wedding Party photos, we provided our guests with pre-dinner canapes and drinks. The reception area is amazing. It has beautiful glass doors all the way around the building, allowing everyone to have a view of the beautiful garden and lake. It is simply stunning.

My one piece of advice to future brides is to be organized. We honeymooned in Ko Samui in Thailand. I knew most of my vendors, however I liked Coast to Country Weddings on Facebook to keep up to date with ideas and information.
