Australian lake house wedding: Marnee + Aaron

February 14, 2012

What kind of Valentine’s Day would it be if we didn’t share a real wedding with y’all? You won’t see any stuffed teddy bears or chocolate hearts in this gorgeous Australian wedding – just a stunning bride and groom with the cutest vintage invitation, bright parasols, flowers galore, and all kinds of fun props and sweets and flower girls with red sequin shoes! This is a 40s inspired vintage themed wedding done romantically and with class. Marnee + Aaron, take it away!

We may or may not be jealous of those sparkly little red baby doll shoes!


M + A walked down the aisle to Grey Reverend’s cover version of Cinematic Orchestra’s ‘To Build A Home’. It was a song they heard together early on in their relationship, and was something they both felt was right, even before they got engaged.

Playful vintage images of kids are such a fun way to add a little charm to your invites.

A fun little moment retold by Aaron: Marns and I danced to ‘They Can’t Take That Away From Me’ by Frank Sinatra, and if you look closely at my face, you’ll realize that there was a problem with our routine and Marns’ dress. We’d been practicing our routine for months, and our spins were to die for. What we didn’t count on was the fact that Marn’s dress sleeves would hinder her ability to raise her arms above shoulder height. So the spins became arm-less, and I do believe my face says it all.
