We are so excited to be sharing this glamorous Sydney black tie wedding of Kelly + Sam who met in Bondi 3 years earlier over long-weekend drinks. Eighteen months later, after dining at New York's Buddhakan (ironically where Carrie + Big's engagement party was held) Sam got down on one knee and asked Kelly to marry him. She tells us "I was so shocked I bursted into happy tears! I had the ring on my finger before I even said YES!"
The couple chose to exchange vows at Kincoppal Rose Bay, a sentimental place for Kelly, who looked stunning in her strapless Pallas Couture gown. For Kelly, this was the highlight of the day, she tells us "Walking down the aisle and seeing Sam's reaction, I was dying to show him my dress but he wouldn't let me! He loved it!"
The glamour continued at the newly refurbished Watson's Bay Boutique Hotel. Spectacular hydrangea and rose filled tables by Tulipanna Flowers complimented the venue's soft canopy lighting. Personal touches were incorporated into the evening with light box initials by Sydney lighting specialists, Sammy & Lola, hand written chalkboard signage and a keepsake illustration for guests to share their well wishes.
LENZO loves a tip, what is Kelly's?
"Try and a sneak a moment with your hubby during the reception (go outside and have a champagne) reflect on the day that was."
Love LENZO x
