Brooks + Charis

September 29th, 2014

What’s that famous phrase? It takes a village to raise a child.  Well I’m here to tell you that is takes more than a village to host a wedding!!!  So many people come together to make your wedding day what it is – friends, family, wedding professionals – all working together to make your day personal and unique.  I asked Charis to send through some of the details that made her and Brooks’ day so special and it read like an Oscar’s acceptance speech.  So many people to thank, so much love.  I felt like I owed it to Brooks and Charis to reveal how thankful they were for everyone’s involvement on their special day.  In Charis’s own words here they are:

Our celebrant Paul Voge Marriage Celebrant – he did a brilliant job and we were so happy to find him. He was everything we never knew to look for in a celebrant   – it ran so smoothly – almost like we knew what we were doing!
 Our ‘chauffeur’ Locky who was going to drive us in a Wilfred outfit …but the material didn’t arrive in time.
 My grandmother, Dell Sutton, who lent me her mothers’ veil to wear – I think she was married in the 1910s – 1920s.
 Every secondhand shop between here and Maryborough – for their books and teacups. Especially the MS shop in Dutton Park!
 All the friends and family members who helped set up the collection of stuff that turned into our wedding – and helped arrange flowers with me on Saturday and string 1000 hand folded paper cranes so that Brooks and I could make a wish. Brooks also folded 1000 paper stars that went on the tables.
Other suppliers… let’s hope I remember them all!
 Hair and Makeup – Powder Room (wow, just… wow)
Dress – (vintage but beading by Venita Drennen) (Venita whipped up the beading on my dress three weeks before the wedding! There was a slight dry cleaning fail – I won’t name names – but she made it look like everything I wanted it to be!)
Venue – Lightspace (Jess was brilliant. And Lightspace… we loved it and there are no words.)
Caterer – Wine & Dine’m Catering (everything I threw at Lacee, she took in her stride. Food was fantastic – and, given the amount of times I changed the menu and the storage requests, she got it perfectly!)
Lighting – AVIdeas (Greg and Chris always make Lightspace look its best and our wedding was no exception)
Cake – Cakes by Judy C (I found an idea on Pinterest – Brooks found Judy, and Judy turned the idea into something classy and amazing!)
Tables/Chairs/Plates – Little Gray Station (their furniture was just perfect and they were so easy to work with!)
Bouquets – Artificial Floral Boutique (Danielle turned my random origami ideas into a reality.)
Barber for Brooks – The Emporium Barber
Suit for Brooks – M.J.Bale
Brooks’ Ring – Dimani Jewellery (Matt (jeweller) is an absolute lifesaver – he found us a substitute ring, resized and polished it two days before the wedding!)
