Rhea & Joel
I love, love, love an elopement and this time, it is simply Rhea and Joel, a beautiful venue and a baby bump! Rhea and Joel met at high school and decided they didn’t want a fuss, they just wanted to be married so they booked an elopement package and did just that!
This sweet mountaintop elopement is such a gorgeous celebration of marriage and beautifully captured by Artography.
Rhea tells the story of how Joel proposed. “We went for a stroll on Mt Tambourine for Valentines day where Joel popped the question at a lovely spot on top of a waterfall.”
Rhea walked down the aisle to “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.
Rhea and Joel chose Maleny Manor for their ceremony, telling, “It was very open and beautiful. A crisp and clear day. All of our vendors were marvelous, I loved that I didn’t have to plan a thing. An all inclusive package is wondrous.”
“The groom was so nervous hat he nearly burnt the bride’s hands from the friction. He blamed the cold of course.”
Rhea and Joel describe the ceremony as, “A very casual and laid back ceremony, no readings, no fuss.”
On what they loved about their day, Rhea and Joel note, “The privacy, the beautiful weather, the laughs, the care-free and laid back atmosphere as well as the great staff and people.”
Rhea carried a sweet bouquet and wore a gorgeous flower crown created by Mondo Floral Designs, she notes, “I just really wanted a flower crown, no reason other than to feel like a fairy princess.”
Of their photographer, Rhea and Joel note, “The photographer was a marvel to work with. Very easy-going and happy to work with two very awkward people. She was very kind and gave great directions.”
The couple celebrated with a private dinner together. Thank you so much Rhea and Joel for sharing your beautiful elopement with us! Thank you also to Artography for sharing today’s celebration!
