I met the lovely Sammy around halfway through her wedding planning and she needed a little help and guidance with stying a few final bookings plus the on-day coordination. So, our journey began, she had a vison and we created a native dusty blue beach themed mood board and went to work to bring her vision to life. She loved the look and feel we created and our ceremony and venue inspection proved an absolute treat when the ceremony location at Barry Park Fingle Bay was breathtakingly beautiful at this meeting I also got to meet Mitch the groom to be, from that moment I realised how beautifully loved up this couple were, Mitch looks at Sammy like he’s won the lotto he is in absolute and complete awe of her and the feels were defiantly replicated from Sammy as we excitedly progress through the styling stage of our wedding planning. This left me awaiting their wedding day with such enthusiasm. The day arrived and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect and were all super relived that we could stick with our great weather option as the skies cleared around mid-day and just in the perfect timing. As the ceremony set up began with Ivy Lane Florist, and Vintage Peacock Hire plus my team the wedding took shape beautifully and the guests Mitch and his men began to arrive! It was real, it was happening, the beautiful Sammy and her tribe arrived in style by Hunter Valley Private Tours, and Belinda Stenhouse delivered a beautiful ceremony photographed by Love Tales by Rachel and videoed by Andrew from Good Fella Films. The ceremony was flawlessly completed and off to the reception at Little beach Boat house Port Stephens we went, where we created a cheese tower goods supplied by the team Hunter Belle Cheese, and lightly decorated the venue with an array of beach and native themed styling. We had Dan Runchel blast and entertain the guests all night and OMG Booths adding to the fun, but nothing tops Mitch’s self-made entertainment as he gave Sammy lap dance to the tunes of Pony by Ginwuwine this has absolutely everyone in stitches from laughing so god dam hard nothing beats a couple that know how to party. I honesty felt like part of the family, Sammy and Mitch are so in love and this shined bright on their wedding night they are blessed with so many wonderful friendly and fun, family and friends that just showed endless support and happiness for this beautiful couple. We wish the complete world of luck and happiness to Mitch and Sammy it was such a delight working with you both to create your beautiful day.
