dion & jade
Dion and I met 10 years ago through work and it was about nine years into our relationship (on our first trip to Europe) that Dion got down on one knee in a beautiful park with the Eiffel Tower in the background and asked me to be his wife. After nearly 10 years being his girlfriend my answer was a no brainer...yes!!
Our ideal wedding was something small, with only our very closest family and friends. Our ceremony was held at the stunning Princess Theatre in Wooloongabba. We stumbled across the heritage listed building online and both got goosebumps the day we went to see it in person. It had so much character.
Our wedding reception at the stunning Emporium Hotel in Fortitude Valley was even better than we imagined. We had a fabulous wedding coordinator who helped set up with our suppliers and the dining room looked absolutely stunning with low light, a greenwall and candle lit backdrop, wooden trestle tables, natural linen napkins and lots of table greenery and candle light. We chose a three sided u-shape for our 60 guest seating plan, so we could see all of our guests enjoying their evening and to feel like we were all dining at one big table.
One of our favourite days leading up to our wedding was our food tasting at the Emporium Hotel. We were spoilt with a tasting of all of the food and wine available for us to choose for our big day. And our guests absolutely loved our chosen selection! The food was beautiful and unique.
Our 1st dance as husband and wife was to “You and Me” by Penny and the Quarters and we loved that it wasn't a typical wedding tune. On the rare occasion we hear the song played it takes us both back to that special moment.
