Dane and Leila own The Grove Wedding and Function Venue. When they set their wedding date they wanted to be different and out of the box.
Dane and Leila decided to have a little more of an “old school” themed wedding. A wedding adorned with wooden center pieces, candles, crochet cloths and macramés.
With the help of their families they planned an unforgettable wedding day. Organizing everything from food, music, bar, external coordinators, right down to their own bar list.
Being a local business, they love supporting local. Every vendor who was involved in their wedding was either East London or Port Elizabeth based. The bands; Lucas Reunion and South Bear added a completely different dynamic to the wedding.
Leila's wedding dress was designed and made by Evette Olivieri. Evette, who not only knew Leila's ideas, but could put them to life. Leila confesses that she is not a girl who particularly enjoys wearing dresses, but her wedding dress was the most amazing, comfortable and beautiful piece of clothing she has ever worn.
Needless to say, the stress was all worth it and their crazy idea to get married at their own venue was the best idea they have had yet!
MY CONFETTI HEART'S MARCH WEDDING FAVOURITE
I'm forever keeping a look out for eye catching weddings, as well as anything wedding related.
To celebrate all the pretty that goes around, once a month My Confetti Heart will be featuring a personal favorite.
For the month of March this wedding had me at the get go. I did an inspiration post at the beginning of the year featuring coral http://www.myconfettiheart.com/inspiration/always-coral-me-your-love so when I spotted this wedding with all it's pops of coral, it was perfect! For those of you that didn't know coral was announced as Pantone's colour selection for the year. I fell in love with all the pretty little details. It has a perfect balance of classic with bright and airy, pops of colour, as well as coral!
The flowers are everything in this wedding. Brighter blooms melt my heart, especially before all the winter colours will be coming in. Can someone say favourite, favourite! More of Sarah's pretty blooms here: www.sarahmayfloralart.com
I'm a huge fan of D Photography, all of these images capture every detail so beautifully. See more of her work on her facebook page: m.facebook.com/d.photography.EL/
All the acrylic signs are done by Witty V and I am so excited for the talent that East London has. Witty V is able to do the most gorgeous acrylic and vinyl signs.
Amy's minimalist/classic dress with off the sleeve shoulder detail is exquisite. My preference is to always opt for classic as well as go with your personal style, rather than what is trending or in the moment. If a bride has to look back at her wedding photos in 20 or 30 years time is she going to love how she looked, and love her choice of dress? Amy has classic taste. My personal opinion is that their wedding photos will always feature in their home.
Take a look at Ryan and Amy's beautiful wedding. All the coral, pink, rose gold classic inspiration you need. The perfect combination of classic, bright and airy.
