Kailla and Ethan
Inspired by the groom’s Mexican heritage, Kailla and Ethan celebrated their day with a Mexican inspired wedding captured by Carmen Rose. From the explosions of colour, to the groom’s authentic Mexican dress, the day was filled with what the couple loved most, and of course plenty of family touches.
Kailla tells, “ Ethan and I met through my brothers, he came over for a family poker night.”
Kailla designed her own dress (complete with polka dots!) and had it made by Paula and Joe Dressmakers. Kailla’s mum made her wedding veil.
The decor elements started the moment guests arrived at the ceremony at Booyembarra Park, Fremantle, Kailla telling, “The wedding was Mexican inspired which is Ethan’s heritage. The aim was to be as colourful and family orientated as possible which shows through the photos.”
Kailla notes, “Our celebrant, the MC and my maid of honor were all from the same family – my close family friends I have known since birth.”
Westcoast Rides provided a Chevy Impala for the couple’s transport.
Of the photographer, Kailla tells ” The photographer (Carmen) is a family friend of the groom. We flew her out from Melbourne because A. She does amazing and creative work B. We wanted to keep the wedding as family orientated as possible.”
Kailla describes the wedding as, “A Mexican inspired event filled with colour, laughter and amour.”
The reception was held at Kailla’s mother’s home. Guests received potted plants as favors, Kailla telling, “We made the 100 potted cacti favors with tweed rope with chillis.”
Loving Mexican party decor so much, the bride started her own business after the wedding- Chiquita Bonita Authentic Mexican Event buy/ hire . She tells, “Most of the wedding was designed and was very hands on. Myself and my mum spent endless hours drawing mud maps on how everything down to detail was going to look and be. We went out and purchased a lot of the items needed, the whole family help set up the entire event.”
TJs Mexican Kitchen 0451 413 682 catered the wedding, Kailla telling, “Our food was amazing and really captured the Mexican flavours perfectly.”
The final finishing touch? A cart and donkey carried the bride and groom, to be introduced as husband and wife.
“All the decorations were brought and flown over from either Mexico or Southern California to make it authentic and unique.”
The bride’s cousin made the wedding cake.
