Amy & Aaron
Amy & Aaron enjoyed a spectacular Autumn day for their wedding in 2018. Incredible styling by Ruby & James, amazing Catering by Blakes Feast and many more team efforts to bring A & A’s dream wedding come true. The bridal party danced the night away in their custom ‘love songs’ demin jackets. Enjoy some snaps of Amy & Aaron’s spectacular Wedding Day.
From the moment we left our initial walk through of Willow & Stone, we knew we had found our wedding venue.
It was a freezing cold winters’ day and I was sick as a dog with the flu and the owners Leisha & Carlos had pre-warned us that we’re probably visiting at the worst time of the year so we would have to use our imaginations a little. Can I just say that there was no need, the venue was nothing short of breathtaking! If we were seeing it at it’s worst, we were overcome with excitement to see what it may look like during peak wedding season.
I had stumbled across the venue whilst doing a bit of a social media search. We were looking for a wedding venue that hadn’t been showcased to death, something a little different and a location that made sense for a lot of our guests travelling from different parts of Victoria to be there. Willow & Stone was the first and only venue we looked at, everything we wanted and needed was there so we knew our short hunt was over!
The fact that both the ceremony and reception could be held on site and that the day would be a gradual transition from area to area meant that we and our guests could benefit from everything the property had to offer and the space could be showcased in all its beauty. The bridal suite in particular where my bridesmaids and I stayed the night before was like something you’d see in a movie. It was absolutely beautiful with stunning décor to match. It made getting ready there so enjoyable, luxurious and relaxing which is ultimately what you want on your wedding day. They had thought of everything including delicious locally sourced produce in the kitchenette.
The boys also made use of the ‘man cave’ space when they arrived on the day which meant they could have time to themselves before the ceremony, time to have a drink, relax before the emotions ran to a high.
The number of comments we had from guests about the venue, how we came across it, how beautiful and seamless the day ran were countless. Everybody was blown away with the space and couldn’t compliment the choice of venue any higher.
In the months, days and even hours lead up to the wedding we couldn’t have hoped for better owners to have been dealing with. Leisha and Carlos were truly spectacular, so accommodating and flexible with us and generous with their time to help make our day as special as it was. We cannot thank them enough for setting the scene to what was honestly the best day of our lives. Their venue painted the perfect picture and Willow & Stone was everything we had hoped our day would reflect – beautiful, elegant, relaxed and ultimately a big party! It’s no word of of a lie when I say that our wedding day was the best day of our lives and even now, months later when I look at our images from the day there’s a huge smile on my face which Willow & Stone can take so much credit for.
Thank you again Leisha & Carlos, we wish you both immense success in the future for what we believe is the best wedding venue you can find in Victoria, hands down!
With love, Aaron & Amy Finch
