BOA STYLE - FOOD TRUCKS

20 September 2016

Those delicious smelling food trucks line up at least halfway down the block? They aren’t just for your lunch break anymore! They are the next big things in weddings and we LOVE! Budget friendly and such good food, you and your guests will be in for a treat. Here’s what you need to know…

If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, choosing a date that falls under the coldest months probably isn’t the best idea. You need to make sure your guests are comfortable standing outside waiting for their food, so late spring or summer would be the ideal time! Also, consider a seating space for your guests to enjoy their tasty treats.

The simpler the menu is, the better for the cooks and your guests to decide. This will eliminate any long lines and lengthy waits for all the hungry people camped out waiting for food. Make sure you have enough trucks to satisfy the number of guests at your wedding, about 1 every 80 guests.

Its all about the fine wine and good food – we can’t think of a reason not to get married on a vineyard!

Nothing goes better with a good drop of wine quite like cheese, so a cheese wheel wedding cake is the perfect addition to your vineyard wedding. Cut the cake at the beginning of the reception and have the cheese served to every table as a cheese platter garnished with some nuts and dried fruit. Your guests will love you for it!

BOA STYLE - WOOD

5 May 2016

There are so many options when it comes to décor and styling of shabby chic and rustic charm weddings, but one thing remains consistent, the essential detail that reclaimed wooden accents give. Wood can be incorporated in many ways to your celebration; a ceremony arch perhaps, or even welcome wedding signs, table centrepieces or even as a backdrop. Take a look at all the ways you can include the beauty of nature into your nuptials…

Instead of utilising wooden slabs on your centrepieces, why not place the wedding reception food or desserts on them to add that rustic charm. Customize a salvaged piece of wood with the text of your choice and include that in your décor – whether it is a welcome sign or seating chart.

BOA STYLE - LAWN GAMES

6 April 2016

Weddings are about bringing friends and family together for a celebration filled with fun, laughter and good times. While hubby-to-be and yourself are off on a romantic photo-shoot, keep the good times going for your guests and provide them with a variety of super-fun lawn games to keep them occupied. There is no better way to get guests chatting and laughing with one another as they toss, jump and putt their way to fast friends!

REAL WEDDING - PAIGE + JAKE

16 December 2015

THE COUPLE: PAIGE + JAKE

GUESTS: 185

PALETTE: We combined our love of rural, modern, boho, classic and romantic. Everyone who attended our wedding could see Jake and I in every detail! Jake and I chose white and gold with a pop of colour through the bridesmaid bouquets and greenery. We wanted to keep it tasteful, timeless and true to us.

paige + jake real wedding - brides of adelaidepaige + jake real wedding - brides of adelaide THE DRESS: I loved my gown! It had the ‘boho’ feel I was looking for, whilst also being fitted and flowy at the same time. I really wanted a beautiful silhouette, which was romantic and whimsical with a sexy side to it. paige + jake real wedding - brides of adelaidepaige + jake real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE CEREMONY: Our ceremony location has always been our ‘go-to’ place for when we need some ‘us’ time. Every year we stay there at least once and we would always look out onto their beautiful garden and think what a gorgeous place that would be to get married!

THE RECEPTION: The Port Lincoln Hotel was definitely an all in one venue. Our guests were able to enjoy a drink while waiting for the reception to commence, and they were also able to book accommodation for the night. It was a spacious venue with a beautiful view! Jake and I wanted to keep it casual yet also traditional. We wanted a sense of calm throughout the day whilst keeping guests entertained and able to let their hair down at night! When guests arrived they were treated to canapés in the entrance foyer, before being welcomed into the ballroom. The bridal table was placed in the middle of the room with four long tables either side; this suited our relaxed vibe and allowed us to feel close to our guests who were coming to congratulate us!

paige + jake real wedding - brides of adelaidepaige + jake real wedding - brides of adelaidepaige + jake real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DECOR: Each reception table had a gold sequined runner with five floral arrangements and tea lights in little glass vases down the centre. The candy buffet was the bomboniere for our guests so at each place setting we placed candy bags with paper doilies, a golden peg and our guests’ names printed on the front. Jake and I used white Chiavari chairs, with a beautiful white silky organza woven through the bridal party chairs to ensure our table stood out. We also used white bench ottomans, lounges and glossy side tables. The amazing hanging floral arrangement above the bridal table was created by my mother and was definitely my favourite element of the reception decor.

THE FLOWERS: My bouquet consisted of all white peony roses, cluster roses, white spray roses, carnations and tulips. My bridesmaids’ bouquets were filled with beautiful coral tones from stem roses, stem cluster roses, billy button, tulips and asparagus fern greenery. All white disbud chrysanthemum, with green foliage of asparagus fern and ivy berry floral arrangements were placed at the reception.

PHOTOGRAPHER: Jake and I chose Jade after seeing her work and also after having our engagement shoot with her. We had so much fun, felt so comfortable and we shared the same vision as her. Jake and I wanted to keep our photos as natural as possible and did not want to look posed. We also wanted to capture the fun we were having with our bridal party along with the love that we share.

WEDDING STYLE - COURTYARD

3 November 2015

A gorgeous balmy night spent under the stars singing, dancing + celebrating - it’s time to draw inspiration from traditional European courtyard ceremony and receptions – and ladies this is a trend we just LOVE! The beauty of a courtyard wedding is that you have the ability to go as formal or informal as you like – a three-course dinner or canapés + share plates – the choice is all yours. A courtyard is a blank canvas so this is your perfect excuse to play with theming + lighting; the possibilities are endless from glamorous chandeliers to festoon lights. Don’t forget to let your guests know they will be dining al fresco, we all know that ‘sinking feeling’ when we wear stilettos on soft + uneven surfaces.
