Colbie and Chris have no hard feelings about the weather not working out in their favor on their wedding day. The couple made the decision to stay inside and took this industrial chic Australian wedding venue and turned it into an intimate ceremony space with the help of a little twinkle light magic. We already knew Australia was an enchanted place, so its no surprise they pulled it off! Warm wood textures against vibrant colored florals and a sea of twinkle lights made this wedding unforgettably romantic.
Figtree Wedding Photography captured all the elements of this layered wedding from start to finish. You would never know the weather was anything less than perfect from their beautiful portraits.
Our beautiful bride went with a detailed lace gown from Made with Love Bridal for the ceremony and kept the shoes simple and neutral.
The bridesmaids all wore matching pink dresses from Forever New, and we’re loving how they compliment their bouquets with the monochromatic look.
From the Bride: Alice from Figtree was amazing with me on the day and her work speaks for itself – all the photos are breathtaking, we love them all so much. She was kind and patient and warm to me on the day and I really felt a sense of security from her. Both photographers were great and we’re so happy we chose Figtree. They are true professionals!
Is there anything more charming and whismy than this bouquet from Posy Lane Co.? Not for us!
Tell us a little about your day…
Our wedding day was… indescribably magical and unbelievably fun! There was a little rain about in the morning which forced a wet weather decision to be made for the ceremony…. it turned out unnecessary but it was the best thing because the indoor ceremony was absolutely stunning and very intimate with everyone all squashed in! We laughed with our loved ones from start to finish. We wouldn’t change a single thing about our day, it was perfection!
What was your favorite part or moment from your day?
The ceremony was amazing, Annie (celebrant) did an absolutely sensational job of being perfectly romantic and perfectly witty. Everyone was entertained and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room by the end of our vows. It was extremely overwhelming, the response we got.
For the evening reception, our bride decided to change into a classic, long sleeve gown from Grace Loves Lace.
We are loving how they repurposed their ceremony arch to display the modern style cake with this neon sign that reads “Better Together”! Too cute!!
Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Choose experienced vendors!!! – they will be the difference between smooth sailing and a rocky ride. Our vendors were all so amazing, and they knew how to keep us to the schedule and timeline. We were so happy with every single thing we chose, and Glad we did the extra research to make sure!
