Fallyn and Grant’s wedding is one for the storybooks. Full of romance and a real life owl as the ring bearer. A big thank you to Adorn Invitations for sharing this gorgeous wedding with us.
The couple wed at the charming Maleny Manor in the Sunshine Coast Hinterlands. Fallyn new she wanted a classic, vintage Gatsby feel for her wedding with soft pinks, whites, and accents of gold. We say she definitely hit the mark! The bride’s florist even imported French Peonies from Paris as a wedding gift for the couple as they were out of season at the time.
Fallyn and Grant met in high school and it was love at first sight. Grant proposed to Fallyn while they were sailing on a private gondola off the Gold Coast Qld. After a romantic dinner and while the sun was setting, he popped the question with a bottle of champagne and a dozen red roses. So romantic!
The bride had the privilege of working with a not-for-profit organization called Raptor Vision based in Sunshine Coast, QLD who are a wonderful animal rescue group. The guys behind this were retired zoo trainers who rescue and care for local birds. To fund the cost of caring for the animals, they trained one of their owls to deliver wedding bands. Luna the Owl surprised guests as the ring bearer for their ceremony.
The bride and groom used a vintage mirror for a unique twist on the traditional escort card. We love this trend of using mirrors as seating charts which adds a bit of sparkle and romance to your wedding decor.
