Jen walked down the aisle to a song written for her by her friend Joe. Joe played Jen down the aisle with his guitar. Jen and Chad had their ceremony performed by Jen’s good friend and mentor Dr Pamela Owens.
Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Jen & Chad ordered towers of cupcakes from Cupcake Island
When it was time for the champagne toasts, the couple broke two corkscrews trying to open the obligatory bubbly!
Legacy Hall allowed the couple to bring everything in which gave Jen and Chad freedom to DIY as many details as they wanted to! The couple chose Hap Abraham Catering who served up the couple’s favourites – enchiladas, Spanish rice and even a pasta bar.
The couple danced their first dance to Duffy’s Syrup and Honey. Afterwards, everyone hit the dance floor for a night of celebration!
Early in the day, Jen gave each of her girls a wooden spoon with a note.
The tune “Living On A Prayer” sounded even better with a wooden spoon microphone.
Jen and Chad, thank you for allowing me to share your beautiful, relaxed celebration on Polka Dot Bride! Thank you also to Lara Hanlon Photography for sending over the snapshots!
It’s time for Wedding Wednesday! Today’s couple Jen & Chad had such a vividly coloured wedding, it’s such a treat for the eyes! Peacock inspired, the wedding is full of dancing and cupcakes. Just perfect for a gloomy winter Wednesday down under!
Jen’s button bouquet was made in shades of violet, blue, green and pink by Megan of Princess Lasertron. Her maid of honour wove her grandmother’s lace into the bottom of the button stems. To compliment the bouquet, Megan made a boutonniere for Chad, wrist corsages for the bridal party, pins for the extended family and barettes for the flower girls. Jen’s hair flower was from Butterfly Enchantress on Etsy.
In a story that captured the hearts of those around them, Jen had painful surgery for scoliosis. Staying by her side, Chad proposed three months later.
Jen and Chad had scouted out fantastic locations for their “first look” including the back of their venue Legacy Hall which doubled as a storage yard for old trolleys.
Chad waited to see Jen in front of an old trolley.
After their “first look” the couple were joined by their bridal party for pre ceremony shots at an abandoned farmstead next door to Legacy Hall . Jen’s bridesmaids wore frocks from Banana Republic
