Country Love

Sunday was the day of my second wedding for the weekend, the big one. We primped and preened at home and despite a failed hair attempt which saw me abandon my original idea and opt for my ‘old faithful’ we set off in The Man’s beautiful Mercury Monterey and drove up the winding mountain roads to the gorgeous Sunshine Coast Hinterland and charming little village of Maleny.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more perfect couple than Scotty and Aleisha. Seriously, whether or not you believe in fate, destiny, soul mates or whatever you want to call it – these two were made for each other. They are perfect for each other in every way, the two of them being together was just inevitable. Even if they’d lived in different countries I reckon they still would have found each other. That’s how perfect they are. In saying that, the ceremony was nothing short of a fairytale in one of the most beautiful little country churches I have ever seen. The non-denominational church was not scary like I find most churches, it was just beautiful and charmingly intimate. I couldn’t help myself, I had a few tears during the ceremony – I’m a big sook, I always cry at weddings.

The groomsmen looked super sharp in their matching Rockmount western shirts and bolo ties and Scotty made a rather dashing Groom in a gorgeous western suit. Aleisha made an absolutely stunning Bride and the ceremony was filled with touching and humorous personal stories like their baby (Golden Retriever) Maverick. My favourite line was in Scotty’s vows when he said he loved everything about Aleisha and listed his favourite things including her ‘Wallace and  Gromit smile’ – too cute!

After we moved outside for all the congratulations, a rose petal shower, some photos and a few drinks we headed to the reception venue to get the celebrations started. At a beautiful winery called Flaxton Gardens the reception was amazing! Definitely one of the best (if not THE best) wedding I’ve ever been to, the setting was very elegant but with plenty of rustic country charm – which suits Scotty and Aleisha to a T! Just look at that view!

After some rather impressive canapes and beverages outside, and of course some lovely photo opportunites with the gorgeous backdrop, the guests prepared to welcome the Birdal Party and the guests of honor, Mr and Mrs Simpson!! We then moved into the ‘Barrel Room’ where fancy table settings were scattered around the room with corrugated iron ceiling and a really cosy candle lit vibe. It was so, so beautiful – everything you imagine a perfect wedding to be. The food was amazing, the bar tab was flowing, the speeches were touching and then it was that time to cut the cake. I don’t think anyone could have asked for a more perfect wedding and I would have been so happy if it was mine, that’s how impressive it was.

Then the dancing started, first Mr and Mrs Simpson took to the floor for their first dance followed by the Bridal Party. I thought I had done remarkably well throughout the day to not cry very much. Then Aleisha danced with her dad. I don’t know why but I couldn’t help myself and I totally lost it. Like big cry, like sobbing, like had to turn away so as not to embarrass myself. The more I tried to stop crying the more I couldn’t. I guess it was kinda funny, I know The Man thought it was. I dunno, it just made me think of my dad. And me. If maybe one day. That could be us. And I wept like a baby.

The rest of the night was spent partying it up to the music and we were lucky enough to get a few sets from The Ten Fours who also played. Another fun thing about the reception was the photobooth. Such a fun idea! I definitely want to have one at my party or wedding or whatever – I just want to have one! Lots of shenanigans and silly pictures came from the night I can tell you. Of course The Man and I had to give it a go. I went for a more ‘classic’ look while he went for…playboy bunny? I’m not really sure. Haha.

BEST. WEDDING. EVER. Congratulations Aleisha & Scotty!
