Australian Wedding at Lake Bryan | Natalie & Cheyne

Natalie and Cheyne reached out to us at the beginning of this year.  It was the sweetest and most heartfelt email inquiry that we got in a while.  See, she was planning her Australian Wedding at Lake Bryan.  The time difference alone for communication with a couple that lives in Australia is rough.

Us being us, we made it a point to communicate.  Marta and I sent them a proposal and contract and we made solidified their wedding date in our crazy fall calendar.  We love Paradise Cove Weddings, so another one there was awesome!

As their wedding date approached we sent out a few questionnaires here and there.  We were trying to get to know them a little better.  It’s part of our wedding process.  Marta and I read little tidbits on what lead up to their unique wedding proposal in Thailand.  Their story will truly make for some awesome wedding proposal ideas in the future.

Their wedding day was perfect.  It was a little hot because it’s Florida, but there was a breeze that kept everyone cool.  The day was perfect for their wedding in every way.  They decided to do a first look.  Gosh, it was so adorable!

The ceremony was right on time and heartfelt.  Both mothers were crying and were barely holding it together.  I could just feel all of the love in the air.  They had been dating for 6 years and it was just time for them to finally hit that next step in their relationship.

The portraits were full of such joy and love.  This is the kind of love that movies and songs are written about.  The kind where the room just lights up.  You could tell that their relationship was full of such warmth.

They had a doughnut cake!  I was so stoked when I saw it.  Krispy Kreme’s no less.  With an awesome duo band playing background music, we started the reception.  From there the night continued until the end of the wedding.  It was sweet.  Their Australian Wedding at Lake Bryan was one of the most sincere weddings I’ve been to in awhile.  This was a destination wedding for everyone except for two people to witness and celebrate their love.
