This last week has certainly been my busiest week all summer - from Wanaka to Dunedin, home, back to Dunedin and now I am sitting in Auckland waiting to board a flight later tonight. I'm so thankful that my job means I have the ability to work from just about anywhere and by my own hours.
Apart from being an insanely busy week, it's also been the most fun! With Danique & Mitch's magical wedding on Friday at the beautiful Edgewater Resort in Wanaka. What an incredible day of love, fun and happiness! Matt and I were spoilt to be a part of this epic day and I'm so excited to share some of my favourite photos from the day on the blog.
Danique and Mitch are such a down-to-earth, fun-loving couple and from the moment we met these two we knew Friday the 3rd of March 2017 was going to be an amazing day of celebration. Over the course of their wedding journey we feel like we've gained awesome new friends in these two. And Danique's a Gore girl so we felt like we knew half of the wedding guests too!
Loved this cute wee ring bag for the wedding bands! Danique, her Mum and the girls all got ready at Black Barrel Lodge on the edge of the Wanaka township.
How gorgeous are all these ladies?!
Meanwhile the guys managed to pack quite a lot into their morning. Some fun at Have-A-Shot Wanaka, a game of pool, a couple of last minute wedding tasks and even a quick dip in the lake!
Are there any kind of cuff links they don't make??
Mitch & Danique had their ceremony on the grounds of the Edgewater overlooking Lake Wanaka.
Mitch's eyes got a bit leaky when he saw his beautiful bride walking towards him down the aisle.
As part of their ceremony Danique & Mitch placed sealed letters into a wooden wine box, to be opened on their 1st wedding anniversary and enjoyed alongside the bottle of wine. Each anniversary they'll write another letter and reseal the wine box with a new bottle of wine ready for the next year, creating an anniversary tradition.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs McRae!
Stunning bridal party! And heaps of fun to spend the afternoon with!
The Edgewater Wanaka was looking spectacular and everyone was ready to party!
The bridal party's grand entrance was all kinds of awesome, complete with a few dance moves and some well timed party poppers!
Speeches were hilarious & heart-warming, but mainly hilarious. MC's Aleisha & Sheree ran the evening to perfection. And the hanging photobooth was a hit!
As the sky darkened it was time for their first dance as Mr & Mrs McRae!
We couldn't finish the night without having a little sparkler fun out on the lawn! Now in case you're not sure, that is meant to be an "E"...
Okay one more photo...courtesy of our friend Chelsea! Thank you girl!
