I had eagerly been waiting for this day for some time, our first catch up it felt like we were old friends. Crystal is a beautiful girl, inside out with the best heart, I couldn't wait to see her marry her dreamy man.
A relaxed morning at Hair Shennigans with the bride and bridesmaids getting beautified with makeup by Serenity Makeup and Beauty. Back to Crystals parents place to get dressed with a champagne pop that saw each bridesmaid have a spray for excitement. Onto the Byabarra to meet up with the guys casually getting ready and catching up with the guests before the ceremony. Everything felt so calm, I think they were so ready for this day.
The ceremony was conducted by Geraldine Lightfoot and it was beautifully done. The kids had held back their excitement until now and it was as if they all joined together to make as much noise as possible. So much emotion and happiness for these two and the look on Rob's face as he looked at Crystal when signing the certificate, stoked to have her as his wife.
The Byabarra has the most relaxed atmosphere, with such a gorgeous outlook to the mountains and this was where everyone mingled for the afternoon playing lawn games. We took off down the back of the property with the entire bridal party on the back of the ute for some fun by the beautiful creek. We lit smoke bombs that caught on fire, we had all men jumping on them to put it out. The photos show the fun that was had, words can't really explain it.
The reception so casual out in the open with the beautiful dusk sky behind us.
It was such a great night, the entire guest list so happy and honoured to be there.
I was so saddened to hear that only two weeks following this day, they lost one of their guests. He was larger than life and I was so happy to know I captured so many emotion filled photos of him for them to keep.
Life is one big journey and while their hearts are full with happiness, life can go from up to down quicker than we know. I'm just so glad you got to have this last party with him and I truly hope the next year is full of UP's for you both, you deserve all the happiness in the world.
Enjoy re living this amazing day!
