Highschool sweethearts, Jess and Paul, planned and executed a crazy beautiful wedding with plenty of life and love at Sunshine Coast wedding venue, The Rocks in the sleepy little town of Yandina.
We adore their colourful flowers and fun styling with touches of gold and funky pineapple details for Jess and Paul’s Yandina wedding. Hanging flowers decorated the clear ceiling marquee, adding to the whimsical fun of the occasion.
