Bride Rochell says her most emotional moment of her wedding day came two minutes before walking down the aisle. Then she saw how incredible everything looked, and all her family and friends waiting to celebrate, and it all melted away.
Rochell’s husband, Jonathan, was the one who worked alongside Splash Events to create a stunning contemporary poolside wedding with style up the wazoo.
The one moment Rochell says she will never forget is looking into her husband’s eyes and saying, “I do.”
The pair were married on a private property in Doonan, and Rochell was kind enough to share her wedding planning journey and stories from the day with us…
Highest Priority For Our Wedding
Music! I’ve known Mia Wray for sometime; I’ve always loved her voice, and so did Jonathan. We flew Mia up from Melbourne for the our special day she worth every penny spent.
Biggest Wedding-planning Challenge
The weather. Getting married in October was a very risky move; it is the most wet season in Queensland! We were very lucky enough to have the one weekend it didn’t rain, so we could enjoy the sun and the stars throughout the day and night.
We were on holiday on bail, on our way to our anniversary dinner when Jonathan drop to one knee and asked me to marry him. We were both crying.. I said yes We had an amazing dinner and spent the rest of night celebrating.
Our Next Big Adventure
Jonathan and I just bought our forever home and we have a baby on the way due in July, so I would definitely say that is our next adventure.
Flowers by Eyes Like Wild Flowers
Biggest splurge: We were very lucky to work very closely with Something for Catering, the food and drink service on our wedding day was amazing… we could not have asked for a better team.
Best money-saver: Jonathan and I have both worked in and out of hospital for 10year… we were very luck to support our friends business. We are so lucky to have amazing talented friends
