Elegant Sydney Harbor Wedding: Kat + Seb

blue wedding dress

Kat + Seb have been together for quite some time (13 years!) and have always been very content in their commitment. So when they finally decided to tie the knot, the most important thing to them was to bring together their families, who are scattered all over the world. They kept things simple, letting the beautiful Sydney harbor and their lovingly selected food + wine speak for itself. This allowed them to truly enjoy the company of their loved ones and each other. Kat + Seb really wanted to make sure that their family + friends were absolutely spoiled from the very first moment arriving on Clarke Island – so guests were greeted with glasses of champagne, served beautiful canapes, and treated to an a la carte menu from their favorite restaurant. It’s evident these two put so much thought + love into all of the details of their day. From the photographer, Len, of I Love Wednesdays:

Kat + Seb’s wedding was a fun reflection of Seb’s French heritage and their love of vintage style — as seen in Kat’s beautiful custom designed, and 50′s inspired, powder blue gown by Sarah Alice Andrews. They also had a rather unusual wedding day, choosing to get married on a Monday to be able to get married at the French bistro where Seb proposed to Kat. They brought over all their guests to Clark Island for their ceremony with absolutely stunning views of Sydney, glasses of champagne and possibly the sweetest ceremony, with self-penned vows…

Walking down the aisle together as partners and equals was overwhelmingly joyous. The moment of taking each others hands and starting on that journey was unforgettable. Then seeing our family and friends so happy for us - it was like a tidal wave of emotion! It took a few moments and some calming words from our celebrant, Chris, to come back down to earth so we could recite our vows.

Sometimes in weddings there’s little moments that create such incredibly memories and during their ceremony Kat couldn’t get the ring on to Seb’s finger. Struggling and giggling with it, Kat finally got it on and exclaimed “GOTCHA!” making for a moment that everyone talked about.

Free yourself from the pressure of perfection - from meeting other peoples expectations, to having every detail loaded with meaning. Let yourself just enjoy the process.

And one little tip for the reception: we had a spare seat at each table, so we could sit somewhere different for each course. It was so nice to be amongst our guests, rather than at a head table. Highly recommend this approach!

Waterfall Elopement in the Rainforest: Jessi + Cody

waterfall elopement

Imagine driving over a thousand miles, to a site you’ve never seen before, to exchange your vows in the lush rainforest with just a handful of friends in tow. Well that’s exactly what Jessi + Cody did when they eloped at Wahclella Falls near Columbia River Gorge in Mt. Hood, Oregon! I’m so in love with Jessi’s sweet, boho look – comprised of a gorgeous Sarah Seven gown + a super lovely daisy and rose floral crown. And even more than that, I love the reasons behind why they chose to elope:

The inspiration for doing our wedding this way was a combination of loving adventure and outdoors, making our day stress free, low key, personal and above all, an experience that let us truly enjoy each other and focus on the connection we have and the big step we were making. We also had our best friends there to watch and one of our very best friends officiate the ceremony. 

Such an amazingly beautiful location! Thank you so much to Carl Zoch for the stunning photography and big congrats to Jessi + Cody on a day that was exactly what they wanted!

Our entire wedding day was enjoyable. Nothing went wrong and with the very little planning and organizing, we were very happy to have everything fall into place so well. However the most memorable moment for us had to be the celebration afterward with locally brewed beer, Dom Perignon and Doritos – we like to keep it classy but never too serious!

My advice for anyone who is planning an elopement in the future would be to make sure you spend enough time in the beautiful place you decide to get married in. I would have loved to stay longer in Hood River because it forever becomes a special spot for you and your husband... also making sure to contact a local florist and know the marriage laws are good things to keep in mind!
