Classic meets glamorous elegance in this stunning Melbourne wedding, it’s just simply awesome. Elise and Julian tied the knot on February 7th 2015 with a traditional church ceremony and a gorgeous reception at the Carousel. The reception had lush green garlands draping from the ceiling, beautiful floral arrangements in white and green and giant Mr and Mrs signs. Elise looks amazing in Steven Khalil wedding dress and her fabulous bridal party, this Melbourne wedding is dreamy goodness.Take a look at all the romantic moments shared by Blumenthal Photography.
How did you two meet?
Could you believe that our parents set us up and it actually worked? My dad worked with Julian’s dad and they just got talking about us one day, and of course my father being the old school European guy that he is just had to tell me about his work partners amazing son who was handsome, kind, successful… I finally decide to meet Julian and I couldn’t believe how lucky I had gotten! My dad was right, and the rest was history I suppose.
Julian knows me so well that the proposal was just amazing. He took me to my favorite restaurant in Melbourne – Vu de Monde. It’s such an exclusive and luxurious restaurant it’s truly special every time we go there. This time however, Julian got us a balcony table. It was amazing overlooking the whole skyline of Melbourne City and the night sky. Once the deserts were brought out, I remember being completely fascinated by a smoking rose flowered dish when all of a sudden I looked up (or rather down) and Julian was kneeling down on one knee! It was the most A-M-A-Z-I-N-G experience of my life!
How did you know your venue was the one?
To me, Carousel is simply the most impressive venue in Melbourne. The idea of being in the heart of Melbourne was really important to me when choosing my venue and the extraordinary view of Albert Park Lake just sealed the deal. I also wanted décor that was quite simple and understated so I could decorate it in any way I wanted to and Carousel was really just the best option for this.
Why did you choose your particular theme?
We wanted something quite traditional but still a little bit edgy! Another reason why we chose Carousel. There’s a bit of a modern Bel Air type feeling and inside it’s just so slick with its all white theme and finishes. We kept our colour theme quite neutral with lots of whites but we contrasted this against lots of green flora to make it a little more modern.
Could you sum up your wedding day in a couple of sentences:
The wedding day was sensational and it was everything that I wanted it to be. It was glamorous, elegant and just the perfect representation of us.
What advice would you give to brides and grooms planning their day?
Honestly, get a wedding planner. Even if your budget isn’t huge go for a small package or get a few consultations. They make such a difference! It’s not just your wedding day that’s meant to be a long lasting enjoyable memory but the planning should be as well so it’s no use doing it all by yourself and stressing over silly little things. They also have professional relationships with so many vendors so they will also end up saving you some costs.
Your favorite part of the day?
Would definitely have to be getting down on the dance floor at the end of the day! It was so much fun being able to really unwind and have all of our closest friends and families there. I think I saw some of the funniest dance moves I’ve ever witnessed that night.
