21-04-18 // Kara + Dale

On the 21st of April, 2018, the lovely Kara + Dale were married at Austinvilla Estate.

From the word go, Kara was calm, easy going, organised + excited for her special day.

Kara loved the idea of a soft combination of muted apricot tones, whites, the smallest (almost non existent) touch of pink + native greenery for their colour palette. I adored the white Icebreaker Roses, Lissianthus + Snow Berries that brought a delicateness to the native vibes + a splash of Olive leaf married it all together.

Kara sent me inspiration images that were of a previous wedding I had done with essentially the same vibe. What was comforting about this, is that I knew from the word go that she trusted me to do my thing. I made sure there was difference to the said inspiration images by creating the bouquets with a slightly different shape + seasonally, mother nature made sure that some different flowers were used.

Most florists would agree with me when I say this. When your Bride / Groom have full trust in you it makes every part of the process that much more enjoyable, less stressful + ultimately lets the person receiving the flowers actually get semi surprised with the end product.

On the day, I delivered the flowers to the on site accommodation + was greeted with such a warm group of ladies + Kara's happy smile when she saw her bouquet. By far, my favourite part of the day for me.

I asked Kara a series of questions about their love journey + for her Wedding vendor information.

QUESTIONS:
How did you + Dale meet?
Dale and I met at his house party for Australia Day celebrations back in 2011. I was invited by his cousin as we had a lot of mutual friends. Since the party we kept in contact and here we are! 

Tell us about your proposal?
In July 2015 we went on a 5 week long driving holiday to Cape York with a group of our closest friends. To my surprise when we reached the very tip of Australia, Dale got down on one knee and proposed. I yelled out yes! before he could even get out the words to ask me. It was definitely a memorable moment and is now a very special place to both of us and look forward to returning there for a holiday in the future.

Your favourite thing about your Wedding day?
Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Dale for the first time that day. It's definitely the one moment I will never be able to forget. Dale was wiping away tears and smiling at the moment!

What does love mean to you?
Love to me is a special promise 

What made you chose Nesst for your Wedding florist?
Many many years ago I purchased one of Nesst's floral headbands and when it came to my Wedding day, I knew there was no other option.

When you think of your bouquet, what part gave you love heart eyes?
Everything about it!!
