Be still, our beating hearts. It’s a rare occasion that we’re left speechless, but this captivating Australian wedding shot by Lara Hotz has done just that! With a sophisticated palette of white, green and gold, this black-tie fete gives us an enchanted garden meets glam opulence vibe that we are simply LIVING for. The bride, Dominique arrived at the ceremony in a vintage automobile, but turned the corner for her grand entrance in a mode of transportation with quite more literal horsepower. Her ethereal illusion dress stole the show as she approached her groom, Sunny, beneath a flowy canopy + leafy chandelier. The reception that followed was held in a clear-top tent filled with long family-style farm tables and foliage galore by Cate Locke Botanica! Dominique’s reception gown features exquisite beading and an overall mystic design. Can you say haute couture? Prepare to be stunned by this almost too good to be true celebration designed by White Rabbit Projects and the bride herself!
From the bride, Dominique: Both of us are real nature lovers so we wanted to accomplish an enchanted secret garden vibe for our wedding ceremony and reception — Enchanted, Natural, Classical, Green, Dreamy. For colors, our theme was white, gold and green.
