Glitz and glamour were the two prime ingredients for this golden wedding with pops of luscious reds that were delivered by the use of more than 2,000 flowers with Sydney Wedding Flowers at the helm. Blumenthal Photography delivers this gorgeous wedding that can only be defined as glamorous – top it off with a childhood love story and it will sweep you away.
Kristi and Steve met at the mere age of 15-years-old and they were smitten for one another from the start. They put their relationship to the test when they moved in together attending the same university. It was a true test of patience that scored perfectly for the dynamic duo. One Valentine’s Day, Steve surprised his soulmate with a hot air balloon ride. Soaring in the cold morning air, Steve got down on bended knee with an engagement ring that shone as bright as the rising sun that day.
Their love has shown no limits – and this was the theme for their wedding day too. High on glam with a touch of glitz. Kristi chose multiple George Elsissa dresses to showcase the ultimate opulence and to wow her guests. Her bridal style was very important to her and she couldn’t decide between having a big princess dress or wearing a sexy fitted dress. In the end, she decided to combine both. She also wanted to wow her guests with another dress for the cutting of the cake and literally matched this gown to the masterpiece Sweet Passion created with gold detailing throughout.
Kristi and Steve knew they needed a big venue to comfortably house their guests, they also wanted something neutral in aesthetics to fill the room with their own vision and personality. After doing their research and site visits, they stumbled upon the Ivy Ballroom in the heart of Sydney, Australia. This was their perfect canvas. Their wedding décor, Kristi contrasted the use of gold with varying shades of red. The reception itself Sydney Wedding Flowers utilized more than 2,000 individual flowers that popped against the clear glass furniture and gold detailing. Add in hundreds of candles and you get an incomparable and unforgettable ambience and one recipe for luxury.
A little piece of take away from the bride for future Mrs. getting ready to take their vows: “On your wedding day, take a deep breath and enjoy yourself! Your whole day goes so quickly so you really don’t want to spend it stressing about minor details that may or may not go wrong. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen are there to help you remember to take advantage of that. If there’s anything that they can do to help, ask them so that you have one less thing on your mind and you can really embrace the day.”
