Sometimes things don’t go as planned…
So here’s the story of Mike and Cara’s wedding day. Their friends all gathered together to help create the perfect day for them. Their puppy Jetson served as ringbearer. Her best friend accessorised her wedding dress (seriously look at the photos, it’s gorgeous!). Her mum’s friend created all the bouquets and floral ensembles with succulents and Australian native flowers. In fact, Cara’s mum was so focussed on them…that she forgot to bring her own dress. Then the ceremony got majorly delayed. With a sinking heart I watched the sun set behind the Cabarita jetty and the light go down.
Now here’s the zinger: it didn’t matter ONE bit! Not. One. Bit. Cara and Mike were super chill. We’d already done wedding photos in Cabarita Park together earlier in the day. The guests enjoyed a magnificent sunset. The lovely celebrant Melissa was able to stay a bit longer. Cara’s mum found a dress to wear. So they got married with lots of tears and tissues (note: buy shares in Kleenex). And at the end of the day they had a wonderful time with their family & friends with a great party at Vela Dining.
It totally shows how a beautiful, personal day can still be so, even if someone misses their speech or has to borrow a dress. Isn’t that what really matters!
