How Did You Meet?

Jesse and I met at church convention. He proposed to me after a beautiful day trip in the Whitsundays – where we were lucky enough to get married there later in the year. For our wedding theme we decided to go with classical and elegant, with as much greenery and flowers as possible to suit Villa Botanica venue style.

What Was Your Favourite Highlight of Your Special Day?

Our number one wedding day highlight was getting married to each other and being surrounded by amazing friends and family who put in so much effort to come to our destination wedding. The amazing speeches, delicious food and driving around in our grandparents classic cars were also standout highlights. The beautiful picnic the staff arranged for just the two of us, was also nice as we could pause and enjoy some time together.

Our wedding planner at Villa Botanica (Tanya) was more helpful than we could have imagined. We would definitely recommend Tanya and the amazing Villa Botanica team!

Congratulations Melissa and Jesse!
