Long-time locals, Sam and Cassie, felt a deep connection to Point Cartwright having grown up with so many memories tied to the place, so they could think of no better place to wed.
Their wedding theme was a classic shabby chic beach affair with mint blue, whites, and neutrals with aged wood, baby’s breath and white wash furniture. Cassie says there was no debate over the theme, as both were on the same page, unable to picture their special day any other way.
Janneke Storm captured each splendid moment.
“I am so lucky to have had my Mum come to every dress fitting with me. Even though the multiple drives to Brisbane weren’t desirable, we always turned the trip into a girls’ day out by shopping and going on lunch dates.”
“Sam and I grew up on the Sunshine Coast and spent a lot of our childhood at Point Cartwright. Being able to say our vows in front of close family and friends at such a sentimental spot was an absolute dream come true.”
“During the ceremony, traditionally just the family give their blessing for our marriage, however we both agreed that both family and friends are equally important to us so all family and friends were requested to give their blessing.”
“For the reception, we wanted to ensure that the guests ate delicious food, drank quality beverages and danced all night long whilst having a night to remember. We believed that even though it was our special day, we wanted to make sure our guests enjoyed themselves too.”
