real wedding: a beautiful and fun australian wedding - part 1

This would have to be one of the cutest weddings ever, and Jaimee and JK are one of the cutest cuddles ever. Their beautiful and super fun wedding was held last winter in Brisbane. 

Do you remember this wedding invitation package? It was Jaimee and JK's gorgeous storybook themed wedding invitations. Their intricate invitations truly reflected them as a couple and set the feel for their wedding day... a whimsical storybook romance wedding. The Hungry Workshop designed the invitations after hearing Jaimee and JK's stories about their lives together. Jaimee said that 'there were heaps of little details just for us throughout the invitation like the page number (713) which is the number of our first apartment together'.

Jaimee looked stunning in her handmade Lisa Gowing gown. It was the first gown she tried on when on a trip to Sydney. Jaimee completed her look with a non-traditional veil from the same designer. This was one of Jaimee's favourite details from the day saying she opens her cupboard at home just to steal a look at her detailed and beautiful veil. 

Jaimee's bridesmaid were pretty in soft pastel Alannah Hill dresses and bright coloured shoes. JK and his groomsmen were handmsome in Rhodes and Beckett suits complete with fun bowties and neck ties. JK even had custom shoes design to match a colour in his bowtie and had their wedding date stamped on the inside of the shoe. 

Jaimee and JK were married at St Mary's Anglican Church. To remember JK's father, Jaimee and JK chose to have two large white balloons tied to the church pews on the aisle, a place where they could see them throughout the ceremony. They released the balloons with their family and friends the day after the wedding at their recovery picnic. 

Jaimee walked down the aisle to her favourite song 'Somewhere over the Rainbow'. As husband and wife, Jaimee and JK walked back down the aisle with guests waving super cute 'hooray', 'huzzah' and 'yay' flags at them to celebrate. 

Following the ceremony, guests were treated to ice-cream treats from the Mr. Whippy van. The guests enjoyed their delicious strawberry sundaes inside the church because Jaimee and JK were married on one of the wettest days of the year. What a cute memory for everyone. 

Due to the weather Jaimee and JK were taken to wedding dress friendly locations such as the Story Bridge for their bridal portraits. 

Please come back tomorrow for Part 2 of this gorgeous wedding.
