An Elegant Garden Wedding

It was such a pleasure for us to work with Rachel and Shu on their wedding day. When two genuine souls come together, they create an irresistible presence about them that can bring feelings of pure joy and love to those surrounding them. An immediate sense of peace is felt the moment you are around Rachel and Shu. It was clear from the start of our journey with this couple that they are loved by many!

The day started with the ladies getting ready in the cottage at Chatfield Botanic Gardens, laughing and talking about the excitement of the day ahead of them. With the help of 3 Little Birds Salon, Rachel’s hair was styled and make-up was completed as her Mom and Bridesmaids watched in awe. Her Bridesmaids helped her put her dress on and her Mom added the final touches with a simple necklace.

As the late Spring day progressed, it was time for the First Look between the Groom and his Bride. With the assistance from Kate Merrill Photography, they were guided onto a bridge in the Gardens for their first glimpse into the next chapter of their lives together. As Shu turned around to see his Bride, the air fell quiet and those watching got chills from how perfect the moment was. From that moment on, the love continued to grow. Photos with the immediate family and bridal party added to the laughter and fun moments of this special day.

When the time came for the ceremony to start, boutonnieres were adjusted and the bridal party was lined up. Rachel and her Dad were patiently waiting hand in hand before being directed down the aisle toward Shu. Oh what a sight the exchanging of vows between these two was! After the “I Do’s”, the celebration for the joining of these two pure souls quickly followed with an amazing spread done by Relish Catering and tasty treats baked by D Bar. With the help of A Music Plus, the dance floor opened and the party continued!!

We were absolutely delighted to be included in Rachel & Shu’s elegant garden wedding as their petals specialist and as their wedding planner! What an honor it was for us to celebrate with this beautiful couple and their loved ones!
