Sunshine and Smiles: Kristi+David's Sunday Afternoon Wedding

Sunshine, bright floral accents, and lots of happy smiles filled the day at Kristi and David’s Sunday afternoon wedding.

Surrounded by family and friends the two, that met by chance while on holiday, created a stunning summer afternoon wedding. Although the pair went for a minimal theme with bright pops of colour, their wedding day shines with special touches adding lots of life and to the easy going atmosphere.

The Beginning

“David and I met in Amsterdam while traveling Europe. What are the odds you’ll meet your person while traveling the world?”

The Proposal

“David completely surprised me by proposing while on a Sunday morning walk along the beach in Elwood. David tried so hard to make it a private moment for us, but it didn’t work as passers-by yelled out “Congratulations!”’

The Dress

“I was devastated when I started looking for a dress, I didn’t like anything. Then I found Belle et Blanc where I had several dresses to choose from! It was an easy decision though, I loved my dress!”

The Wedding Theme

“I envisioned a beautiful summer afternoon and something simple with pops of color. The Emerson was our first thought as it’s truly the perfect classy rooftop. Crisp white tables and chairs on top of synthetic grass giving an easy “Sunday lunch” feeling. Then we added bright flowers and buckets of colored shots to get the party started. It turned out better than I imagined.”

Special Moments

“The whole day was amazing. I remember sitting down for lunch and thinking, “Take a moment to look around.” All of the smiling and laughing from our loved ones was all we wanted for our wedding day, and that’s what we got.”

Helpful Tips

“Don’t stress so much, it really isn’t worth it. Enjoy the process, but don’t make it harder than it has to be and make sure it’s what you want. You’re the bride, it’s your day! Remember that this is your day.”
