You know that feeling when you’re going to be awesome friends with someone even though you just met? We had that.. Yay Lauren and I! With a shared love all things Kate Spade, Fancy Queenslanders, Pink and Ranunculus I knew this was going to be awesome!
With distance between us, Lauren and I planned over the phone all the details for their big day. Then came June and we met over coffee at UQ (the University of Queensland for those not from town) to pick all our fancy spots for photos and run through the finer details.
Thank goodness for aircon when a heatwave sweeps over Brisbane in September! Lauren and Flynn chose to get ready together for relaxed and chilled preparations, genius! The location, a STUNNING Queenslander in New Farm found on Air B’n’B was filled with gorgeous details, sparkly pink Kate Spade Wedding shoes, ridiculously impressive DIY invites and to die for bouquets of Ranunculus by Kate Dawes Flower Design. With Flynn by her side to settle the nerves, you couldn’t help but have a tear in your eye when Lauren peeked out from behind the door and Flynn saw his Bride in her Wedding Dress for the first time. It was beautiful and definitely a highlight of the day.
A limo ride to UQ’s Alumni Court for a beautiful ceremony by the always lovely Annie Grace Ceremonies. With jets flying overhead you couldn’t help but be swept up in the moment as Lauren and Flynn made their vows to each other surrounded by the grand old buildings of the university.
Then off on our adventure around the Great Court through the sandstone pillars, under the jacaranda trees and finishing down by the lake at Sunset.
The Bridesmaids had done an amazing job decorating the Reception and baking up a table of delicious cakes and handmade macarons. A DIY Wedding Reception of epic proportions, Kate Spade meets Midsummer nights dream, with a grand finale watching Riverfire from the balcony overlooking the city.
Happy Wedding Day Lauren and Flynn, we had a ball! xox
