Yarra Valley certainly turned on it’s finest weather for these two… the temperate was comfortably warm, the sun rays were shining down over the vineyards – an absolute perfect setting for a day of celebrations, warmth and festivities for Steph, Mitch and their family and friends.
Steph + Mitch first met back in school days – being high school sweethearts and have been together for about 11 years so far. Mitch, as Steph describes was “the cool school clown constantly in trouble and I [Steph] was the teachers pet”. As a friendship soon developed, they continue to drive each other crazy, laugh and celebrate each others differences – being polar opposites but the perfect match for each other at the same time.
The day commenced with Mitch and the boys getting dressed in their Briggins suits, in between a few drinks and laughs. Steph and the girls meanwhile were pampered by our fav Candice from Beauty Within Makeovers for makeup, whilst Kerrie-Anne from Magical Makeovers was working her magic with hair styling. Steph looked absolutely divine in her Stella York dress, complimented by lovely floral arrangements by Yarra Valley favorite Debbie O’Neill and headpiece by Jeanette Maree.
Surrounded with a stunning vista of vineyards, trees and the mountain ranges, Yarra Ranges Estate was the picture perfect setting for Steph + Mitch to exchange their “i do’s” in a lovely garden ceremony, officiated by the wonderful Shannon from Cloud9 Celebrations. As guests wandered the grounds as we captured the candidness alongside Will Chao Photography, the beaut of a day ended with some light hearted speeches (including a rap by the bridesmaids) and lots of time for Steph + Mitch to enjoy their celebrations with the people who matter most to them.
Thank you so much Steph + Mitch for a stunning day – wishing you both every bit of happiness.
