This private residence hosted wedding was one of the most memorable weddings I have planned.  Not only was it planned throughout my journey of being pregnant for the first time, it was one of the most enjoyable weddings to have been involved in as a wedding planner + stylist.  Referred to by good friend, and photographer Callie Marshall of Florido Weddings, we met @ local café – Gunshop in West End.  Dom + Claire are old souls with big hearts, lots of laughs and mega watt smiles to go with.  Their passion for their dachshund puppies, for good food + wine and for life in general meant we hit it off from the beginning.  

As a Full Planning Package, this marquee wedding under the stars was a full time job for many months, with the wedding planning checklist seemingly never ending. 

With a full design concept incorporating the food & beverage into the overall logistics, we worked with Claire + Dom to create an ‘Eat Street Market' style of offering with an American BBQ Bar, Seafood Station, Taco Bar, Veuve Bar + Champagne Tower to boot.  Hosting a menu tasting in their home with family friends, Main Event brought the Chef to the table for a night of feasting just a few weeks prior to the big day to ensure the menu was “just so”.  Prior to the day, we brought in the A Team to create a picturesque setting under the stars, overlooking the mountains, made up of a giant clear roof marquee, epic lighting, amazing furnishings and of course our in-house florals.  

As Claire + Dom approached the dance floor for their first dance as Mr + Mrs, the lights were all on and as “All Night Long” by Lionel Richie resounded, so did our custom made lighting feature on the back of the marquee wall.  From here on in, it was all about the dancing shoes. We had a third of the wedding party kicking up their heels, whilst the men enjoyed our custom ‘Grooms Room’ with an abundance of fine scotch & cuban cigars.

To complete the wedding weekend, we followed up with a homemade brunch the next day - warm breakfast tarts, muffins & pastries, fresh juice, and plenty of coffee and tea to nurse those post wedding headaches!

Claire and Dom – you are truly one of the loveliest couples I have had the pleasure of working with.  I miss those late night meetings {which included Stone & Wood Pacific Ale courtesy of Dom}, the endless emails, and the back and forth of confirmations.  But, I will never forget the look on your faces when you first walked into your wedding marquee.  That was priceless and a memory that will last a life time.
