From the Vendors:
The style was southern, preppy, and fresh. With the girls in cornflower dresses, and the boys wearing khakis and bow ties. The florals were vibrant and elegant. The brides bouquet was tied with a gorgeous Seersucker bow and the maids bouquets were tied with small silver bells.

From the Bride:
I probably should have asked for more help! I find it hard to ask for help but having someone who understood my ‘vision’ to help me be decisive during those stressful times, would have saved me hours. It was the most calm and fun day getting ready but I wish I had left myself an extra 10minutes to just sit and be with my ladies and just soak in the moment with them before leaving.

We got married and held the reception at The Old Church in the Hawke’s Bay which has a historic charm, but with a modern and chic feel.

Our table settings were based around the renowned couples of our most favourite romantic films. Our table was Breakfast at Tiffany’s which featured a behind the scenes picture of Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard playing Holly and Paul. The settings also featured our favourite quote from the film shown.

It was the most perfect sunny day which illuminated the setting. Walking into the reception with the sun pouring in from the vineyards and hitting the gigantic chandeliers above all of our amazing friends and family, was just magical.

Our guests all received a French paper bag bound in twine, with a CD in it of our favorite songs from the day and that have significance to us, our family and friends; songs that represent us. Our guests loved listening to this on their journey back home!
