Highschool sweethearts, Dane and Breanna, live together on the Gold Coast, but found their perfect wedding venue in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
They planned their modern Maleny wedding with ease, choosing a brilliant team that would take care of all the little details.
Breanna says walking down the aisle towards her love, Dane, was her favourite part of the day. “Dane is caring and loves with his whole heart. He is my love and best friend all wrapped into one.” She says.
Breanna has kindly shared the story of her wedding day, and all the planning that went into it below.

What a Couple Wants
We knew we wanted to enjoy our day and make it stress free so choosing a venue and team of vendors which could take care of all the set up and organisation was a key priority for us. The day went off without a hitch and was as perfect as we imagined.
Stand out Suppliers
I loved all of our suppliers. Jekka (Naturally Jek Photography), Ed (Blue Vale Films) and Danielle (Your Story Celebrant) all showed genuine interest in making our day perfect. They also worked together seamlessly. My hair and makeup artists were also AMAZING! Alyssa from Evalyn Parsons did a great job and is a lovely, warm person.
At our ceremony Dave West played an amazing acoustic set. As I walked down the aisle he played Tenerife Sea by Ed Sheeran, the signing song was Lifetime by Justin Bieber and the walking out song was Black and White by Niall Horan.
Our reception entrance song was Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars and our first dance was Beautiful Crazy by Luke Combs.
The Perfect Day
There is nothing I would change. People always talk about it being the best day of your life and for us it truely was so amazing.
Biggest splurge: Our photographer and videographer – these are the only things you will have left after the day!
