This week we are showcasing a stunning wedding straight out of a fairytale. The lovely couple, Samantha and Michael, held their wedding in Australia at Rydges. This special day was submitted to us by Kathryn from BWedding Invitations. Kathryn was able to talk to Samantha and Michael, who shared their love story and thoughts about the day. This fairytale wedding was captured by Jashan Photography, an impeccable Brisbane wedding photographer. We hope your hearts flutter at these pictures like ours did! First, here’s what Samantha and Michael had to say:
“We met at a dance battle. Mikee was dancing on a show in Las Vegas that had a six-month contract at Jupiters on the Gold Coast. A mutual friend had set up a dance event for all for the Brisbane dancers to battle all of the Americans and afterwards it became one big dance party. At the end of it, Mikee got my details. When we were on holiday in Rome, we had gone to the top of this huge building that overlooked the whole city. I’d had the ring in my pocket for the past few days, but never found the right time to propose. Sammy had said, “I love Rome.” And I said,” Oh yah?” and started reaching in my pocket for the ring, but I kept fumbling for it. To buy time, I asked our friends who came with us to take our picture. After two photos I still hadn’t managed to do it, and finally I mustered all of my courage and asked her on the third time, “Will you……Marry me?….” She was speechless and we got a great photo of her reaction. After a long moment of gasping, she said yes.
For our wedding we had so many guests fly in from America, so the view for the reception meant a lot to me. I wanted to show off how pretty Brisbane was, so we chose Rydges because of its stunning views. Our wedding styling was very traditional with blush colors. So cliché. Since my husband and I both dance, there was a lot of pressure for us with our first dance. I planned the ceremony, reception and honeymoon. It was Mike’s job to put together the first dance. Everyone really enjoyed it and I think we were able to live up to everyone’s expectations. Phew! At the end of the night, when we went back to the room together as husband and wife, we had a giggle. We survived! Everyone was happy. The circus was over. We are married and in love.”
