Lisa & Richard

A gar­den party with sparklers, a sax­o­phon­ist and spe­cial mo­ments was the per­fect way for these two to cel­e­brate their love

Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - NEWS -

Lisa spent the night be­fore her wed­ding with her girls, re­lax­ing and en­joy­ing time to­gether be­fore the big day. Come the morn­ing of, she was the first one up, and a cute note from Richard brought the first of many of the day’s happy tears. Be­fore she knew it, Lisa was on her way to the cer­e­mony and shar­ing a spe­cial mo­ment with her par­ents, re­flect­ing on the ex­pec­ta­tions and ex­cite­ment of the day. Once there, the bride and groom shared what they loved about each other as well as their per­sonal vows. Then it was time to cel­e­brate, with the new­ly­weds danc­ing into the night be­fore guests farewelled them with a stun­ning sparkler send-off.
