A sweet wedding

Kelsie and Josh married at the historic and beautiful Werribee Mansion just outside of Melbourne, Australia. Josh's childhood school chaplain married them in a gorgeous heartfelt garden ceremony surrounded by their nearest and dearest. 

Kelsie was the most friendly, down-to-earth and vivacious bride - there wasn't a moment without a smile on her face. Josh was so chill and full of humor - the way he looks at Kelsie is just heart melting. It was such a pleasure to witness Josh and Kelsie's chemistry together - one full of mutual respect, love, and a ton of laughter! 

The Proposal 

We went to a winery for lunch on the Bellarine Peninsula followed by a stroll through the vineyards. I had been bothering Josh for days about what he wanted for his birthday and he stopped at a nice spot overlooking the ocean and said “I know what I want for my birthday now” he got down on one knee and asked, “Will you marry me?”.

The inspiration

We always wanted to be married outdoors surrounded by a garden with a relaxed vibe. We wanted the day to be a true reflection of us as a couple and our style. The most important thing while planning was finding the perfect venue that could also assist us throughout the process. The flowers were so beautiful and were my favorite element of the whole day. Our florist really understood our vision and brought it to life. I still smile when I think about all the heartfelt and funny speeches by our families and each other.
