This wedding is all kinds of gorgeous.
As you can imagine, doing the job we do, we just adore seeing couples in love. But sometimes a real wedding comes along, where the couple’s happiness literally pours out of the pictures.
Karis and Sam are one of those couples.
Their stunning winery wedding in Yallingup, South Western Australia, is just the most beautiful day, captured, perfectly by the ever-wonderful CJ Williams Photography.
Karis makes for one breathtaking bride with a fabulous headband, beautiful lace dress, and the biggest smile on her face all day long.
While Sam is utterly dashing in a black suit, with a skinny tie – and just watch out for the shot of him seeing Karis for the first time, it’s pretty special.
A day styled to perfection, with blush pink bridesmaids, lace craft details, cocktails, lawn games, balloons and blooms. And lots and lots of smiles.
Rustic, romantic, and joyous, this wedding is heavenly. Take a look…
The Love Story
Sam and I are high school sweethearts. We first met at a party when I was 15 and were friends for a few years before we became an item a few years later.
Sam proposed on my 25th birthday.. He took me out for a beautiful dinner at one of our favourite restaurants Matilda Bay. After dinner, there was a limousine waiting in the car park which drove us to Kings Park, where he proposed (on bended knee) overlooking the city lights…
It was perfect!!
Our ceremony was held at the beautiful Yallingup Garden Art Studio.
I walked down the aisle to Heartbeats by Jose Gonzalez (which is one of Sam and I’s favourite songs), and I remember how happy and excited I felt in that moment when I was walking towards Sam, about to become his wife.
We wrote our own vows (with some help from our lovely celebrant Kate) which we shared with each other on the day, and said “I do” in front of 100 of our closet family and friends.
Our reception was held at Wills Domain Winery in Yallingup, and we could not have picked a better location!
The view, food, wine and staff are amazing and we loved the rustic, romantic feeling that Wills Domain offers. Their events coordinator Ashleigh really went above and beyond to ensure everything was just perfect.
The overall look we wanted to achieve was a rustic/vintage look with boho touches.
Most importantly though, we just wanted our wedding to be lots of fun & a celebration with all of our closest family and friends!
Isn’t it perfect?
What a gorgeous pair? I just adore the styling of the whole day, the outdoor ceremony is so charming (how cool are those embroidery rings?) and I love how the lace detail is carried through to the reception. So pretty!
