Sophia + Luis: Country Woodland Wedding


From a peaceful day exploring Vietnam, to a dinner with a hidden ring in the fruit platter, Sophia was blown away by a surprise proposal from her now husband, Luis. Together they chose to make it official, holding a rustic, country woodland wedding with those friends and family closest to them.

Luis and his groomsmen rode in style on the back of a ute to the ceremony, to wait for his bride-to-be. Sophia arrived, dressed to perfection in an elegant, laced One Day Bridal gown, and a full-length, flowing veil to walk down the aisle behind her bridesmaids. The choice of white flowers and wild greenery bouquets helped to create the soft, magical tone of the day.

When Sophia was asked how she knew Luis was the one, she said, “He was as crazy as I was, and you just have this feeling that you know this is the person you are supposed to be with for the rest of your life.” The pair, choosing to entrust the special day’s planning to Lucy Chase, definitely had a ceremony and reception fit to make memories that would last a lifetime. The reception took place in a white marquee with the most beautiful hanging greenery centerpiece, and every detail arranged meticulously, down to the signage, name tags, and table arrangements. One particularly fun aspect to the reception was the choice to throw in a few “Chilean twists” such as the “La Cueca”, the Chile national folk dance as the couple’s first dance. Sophia’s word of advice to any future couples getting married: “Be yourselves, and do everything that you want.”
