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.”

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.”
