Essense bride Kendra wanted a simple and relaxing day for her wedding that would be filled with vintage touches, including her wedding dress. Her elegant Essense of Australia lace wedding dress, which looked perfect for the venue, featured a breathtaking open-back design. The wedding day was aww-inspiring with the woodsy locale highlighting her natural style, and effortless beauty. From the delicate babysbreath floral crown to the DIY rustic touches, every detail was whimsically magnificent. Harlos Photography flawlessly captured the romantic and dreamy day.
From the Bride: We planned the wedding in under 3 months! Evan and I had been together 6 years when he proposed on vacation in Barbados, and we didn’t want to spend too much time planning or stressing about the perfect wedding. We kept everything very relaxed, casual, and fun. Due to the short time frame, I had to put a rush order on my Essense of Australia wedding dress. As soon as I saw it, I immediately knew it was the one. It was the first of only 2 wedding dresses i tried on, so that was nice and simple! It was a very inexpensive wedding, and still ended up looking amazing, mostly due to the incredible setting. My parents are landscapers so they whipped the property into shape with gorgeous lighting, woodwork and gardens.
I spent the whole day bursting with love and happiness. I can’t choose just one memory! Some highlights were my dad walking me down the aisle, sitting with my husband Evan at the head table listening to the amazingly heartfelt and funny speeches, and dancing the night away.
I guess the most special thing for me was that it was at my parents home/property where I grew up so there were already so many special memories there and we got to make another one.
