After a last-minute cancellation with their original venue, Chantelle and David found themselves in a pickle. How can you possibly have a wedding without a venue? Lucky for them, fate was totally on their side. They ended up being offered Graciosa, an amazing private property complete with a treehouse and tyre swing, which (get this) was the exact spot they got engaged at. Crazy how things work out like that, huh?
Sporting a lovely Grace Loves Lace gown and Forever Soles the big day was absolutely beautiful. Featuring heaps of talented vendors, the whole thing was captured by the awesome Stories by Ash. “We were so lucky, all our vendors were just the best people ever! Everything ran just so smoothly and every tiny detail was taken care of.”
Chantelle and David were adamant about the kind of wedding they wanted: a relaxed, laidback, outdoor vibe. “We are so glad that we had a smaller, intimate day / night,” the couple explained. “It made it easy to be able to catch up with everyone and kept the day easy and relaxed. We are also glad we didn’t have a sit down dinner, which wouldn’t have suited us or our friends and family at all.”
