The reception was held at Mudbrick Vineyard, not far from the ceremony venue in the main restaurant.
Waiheke Hire installed wonderful festoon lighting on the ceiling and we brought back the flowers and candelabras from the ceremony to adorn the tables.
The candelabras were custom handmade in India, the brass compotes and vases imported from New York and the brass cutlery was imported from Australia days before the wedding to round out the theme.
The whole wedding sparkled with the glimmer of brass and gold under the soft white lights and candles as a guitarist played soft Spanish guitar melodies under the chatter of happy guests.
The wedding was incredibly beautiful, the entire day was filled with love and laughter and such a genuine love and respect between the bride and groom. It truly has been our favourite wedding thus far.
A few days after the wedding, we were sent this wonderful feedback from our bride Ria:
"Words cannot express how thankful I am to have worked alongside Rhonda at Harlow Garland to create my dream Wedding. From the countless hours spent providing support and working with our Wedding vendors, to the elegant style of decorating and careful consideration to detail, I felt at ease in entrusting my vision for our special day to Rhonda. We consider ourselves blessed to have had the privilege of working with someone who carried our vision with passion, grace and professionalism. Thank you for making our dream Wedding a reality!"
Andrew, Ria - we are so happy to have worked with the both of you in creating your magical day. We wish you every hope and happiness in your new lives as one.
