Lush greenery backdrops and equally soft and bold pops of colour from the florals are the perfect setting for these dreamy garden inspired 'I Do's'. Bride LeighAnn was very involved in the planning and pulled off this gorgeous and fun celebration that has us swooning over every little detail. You know when you have the dynamic team of Simply Rosie Photography, Stone House Creative and Amanda Douglas Events at Cielo's Garden, you’re in for a treat!
From bride LeighAnn... Being able to share the day with so many of our friends and family was huge. After 7 years of being together, one child and few moving days, I’m sure many of our guests thought this day would never happen. We’ve always been lucky to have great friends and family that we can count on, which is represented in our 16 person wedding party. And of course having Huxley be old enough to understand the implications of the day made it even more amazing.
I worked closely with Lauren form Stone House Creative on the floral arrangements, flower crowns and bouquets. Although wanting to have input, I left the creative side to Lauren who did not disappoint. Seeing the arrangements, most notably the arbor hanging directly above us while we said our vows was really beyond what our imaginations had imagined
Despite the sweltering heat, the intense humidity and the mini storm, Simply Rosie Photography made it look like we were modelling for a wedding magazine instead of trying to stay dry. We had done shoots with them before however the moments they captured for us we will cherish forever. Their professionalism and willingness to work around an overheated, tired and sometimes cranky three year old was truly remarkable
The atmosphere at Cielo's Garden was probably the thing we will remember most. From the moment we made our “grand entrance”, after walking through the rain, the crowd was raucous and you could feel the energy build through the dinner, gain momentum through the toasts and culminate on the dance floor. Like every great wedding should.
Lastly, having a wedding outside the city made it impossible to control some of the planning, but thanks to Amanda, we were able to enjoy our day with friends and family without the worries of all the happenings behind the scenes. She really went above and beyond, even walking the kids to the bathroom in the rain.
