Ivy & Ju just came in to finish the design of their wedding album. I asked them what the most memorable part of their day was and this is what Ju said…. “When we were standing and facing one another. We felt so emotional. It reminded me how many years we had waited for this moment together.”
What a beautiful thing to say. I knew what he meant. It wasn’t that Ivy & Ju had had a really really long relationship. He was referring to all the time before they were together too. He was talking about that long journey we all take to find that person – the one that makes us feel complete. Ivy is that person for him. Their love makes me smile.
Ivy, from China & Ju, from Korea meant that their wedding was a wonderful mix of their western lives and their Chinese and Korean heritage. It was colourful, musical, beautiful. Their family & friends, including Ivy’s mum travelled all the way from China and Korea to see them marry here in Brisbane – their new home. And Brisbane did not disappoint. The weather was perfect for their outdoor ceremony in the heart of our city at Roma St Parklands. Perfect for getting in a Porsche and heading to the Hilton for the reception. Perfect for a glorious wedding, with a touch of magic from The little white wedding company, Styled Events and Always Fabulous Flowers. And almost as good as Ivy in her Vera Wang dress and Gucci shoes. Then of course there was the cake (you’ll see what I mean in the photos) – that is the work of the talented Greg from Sweetums.
The most memorable part of the day for me…..Ju’s Dad taking to the stage in traditional Korean costume to sing a special song to Ivy & Ju in Korean. I didn’t understand it, but I loved it!
Ivy & Ju I hope in these photos, I’ve given you that moment, forever, and I wish you many many more special moments together.
