Selena + Sean
A family oriented, thanksgiving monday, breakfast for dinner, kind of wedding.
I don’t know about you, but they had me at breakfast for dinner. Selena and Sean’s wedding day was so beautiful and welcoming. From the moment you walk in the door you immediately feel like family. Everyone was smiling as they rushed around in the morning. There were so many things that stood out at their wedding. Selena had the whole rhyme put together ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe.’ I haven’t heard of the sixpence before but it was really interesting! ‘A silver sixpence in the bride’s shoe is a traditional good luck wedding gesture and customarily, it is the father of the bride who places the sixpence as a symbol of him wishing her prosperity, love and happiness in her marriage.’ So brides that are keeping to tradition look no further!
The rest of the day went by incredibly smoothly thanks to the team at Lynn Fletcher Wedding, The ceremony took place at the First Mennonite Church, close to Mardaloop. The inside was so stunning, built like churches used to be. The processional was lead by their family members, sisters, brothers followed by the entrance of Sean and his Best man, his Father, and soon walked down their Maid of Honor, Selena’s Mom. This was so touching that the people who raised them would be the ones to stand up next to them as they said I do. Such a unique wedding idea! Not only that but their grandmothers were the flower girls. I LOVED that idea! Selena walked down the isle with her father to the tune of ‘A night to remember’ sung by their friends in a band called Two Bit Bandits. You’ll hear more about them later. The ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt with many laughs and giggles. The moment that had everyone going was when Selena leaned into Sean’s microphone on his lapel to say “I do” the way she smiled back at the guests made everyone give a good belly laugh. By the end of the ceremony everyone had their share of tears and laughs they sauntered out and came back in to do their receiving line, they walked up to everyone afterwards they all said their congratulations and away we go!
The reception was held at Aloft Hotels, if you haven’t been here I strongly suggest you check it out! It is incredibly modern in there. The pool room is where the party started! Speeches left everyone in tears, after the bride and groom gave their wedding speech everyone did a shot! Of CEREAL! That’s something I’ve never seen or heard of before, but when you have breakfast for dinner what better way to kick off break-inner…? no? I’ll try harder next time.
Music was lead by their friends band The Two Bit Bandits, they were so awesome! They kept the party alive and jigging all night long! I strongly recommend you check them out for your wedding or next party 🙂
We said goodbye to the newlyweds on their wedding day and on the way home we talked about how great the day was, how wonderful everyone had been. I was smiling the whole time when I was editing their wedding photos. I’m so happy they have them now and can relive their day over and over again.
