Interstate weddings are always a lot of fun. We get to travel (attempting to sneak into the Qantas lounge by flashing Video Ezy membership cards has become a bit of a pastime for us), rent cute little cars (a bright pink Nissan Micra has been our favourite thus far) and suss out whether the interstate hipster cafes are all across haloumi and quinoa. But when Katelyn + Arjun invited us up to Noosa to be part of their wedding and kindly put us up in the Sheraton, we just about keeled over (but not before rushing to the day spa and then scheduling in time to utilise the swim up bar).
Katie’s mum (who grew up in NSW) has a little theory that the further north you travel, the warmer the weather, the nicer the people. That theory really stuck with us, because every person we met along the way were so unbelievably warm and friendly, and by the end of the wedding I’m pretty sure that every guest had checked that we were ok, well fed and watered and thanking us for being there. We could definitely get used to this amazing Queensland hospitality!
The wedding from start to finish was glorious. Warm tropical sun, cool drinks and sandy feet. Katelyn looked so beautiful in her Collette Dinnigan dress and chose to work with some really amazing vendors on the day such as Mondo Floral Designs for all the gorgeous flowers, while CL Weddings was in charge of the beautiful styling. They then partied it up at the Noosa Beach House which was an incredible spot for a reception.
It was such a wonderful day and as we retreated to our room at the end of the night, we both sat up in bed, looked at each other and had a moment where we truly loved our job. The next morning before flying home, we made sure we had a swim and tried once more to sneak into the Qantas lounge.
Love Katie + Sarah xo
