It was love at first sight for this week’s White Lily bride Jasmine and her partner Steve. These two high school sweethearts met eight years ago, and to this day, still give each other butterflies: “the good kind”. They celebrated their love surrounded by family, friends, and the hinterlands of the lush Tweed Valley.
Tell us the deets – Who proposed and how?
“After eight years of dating, Steve finally decided to propose…” And it was perfect! Jasmine’s partner planned a beautiful surprise weekend away at a hidden cabin in the Sunshine Coast hinterlands. Little did she know he had the best surprise of all still in-store. “While we were away Steve hired the One Tree Hill property at the Sunshine Coast for a picnic and proposed at sunset. It was very romantic, and to this day still gives me butterflies (Good butterflies). It was simply perfect.”
Florals, Fairy-lights, & Fun
Jasmine and Steve’s wedding was definitely one of those days we wish we could have been part of the ‘on-the-day’ vendor crew. From the confetti to the champagne, and, of course, the love these two share – they brought to life what they always envisioned: a modern minimalist hinterland wedding, surrounded by family, friends, and great music.
For Jasmine and Steve, every vendor was a dream, working seamlessly together to make their vision become reality. Both Figtree Pictures and Michael Vos Music were “simply amazing.” Alice exceeded their expectations and “captured everything we had envisioned.” Michael’s music was the perfect blend of romance and party: “his music not only gave me chills but kept everyone on the dance floor.” Jasmin and Steve really couldn’t recommend these vendors enough to future brides-to-be!
What was the most memorable part of your wedding day?
Upon askin Jasmin about her all-time favourite wedding day memories, she remembers “Walking down the aisle and seeing Steve’s face.” Even by just looking at their ceremony photos, you could really feel the love in the air. With a backdrop as beautiful as ever, their Mt Warning wedding was truly magical.
Jasmine’s White Lily gown was “simply perfect.” She wore Olive by Wedding Societe, a stunning off-the-shoulder gown with ethereal charm. With its bohemian flair and romantic lace, it’s a match made in heaven with the hinterland wedding she’d always envisioned. “I loved the detail of the lace, especially on the bodice. I felt so secure and comfortable in my dress.” We were in love!
Nothing makes us smile more than hearing about our brides’ experience finding their dream dress here at White Lily: “The girls were so lovely and made me feel so comfortable when trying on dresses, extremely helpful and informative.”
Our White Lily couples wedding plans weren’t smooth sailing due to Covid postponing their June wedding to March the following year. Although tough to accept at first, Jasmine took it in stride. Her valuable advice for future brides: “Enjoy the ride, things constantly pop up that do not go to plan. Learning to not let them get you upset but to instead look at how the situation can be fixed or what is the next step to take. No matter what happens just remember at the end of the day you’re marrying your best friend and that’s all that really matters.”
Complete the sentence: Being married means I get to call my best friend my husband….Calling Steve my husband still makes me giggle. I love knowing I got to marry my best friend and I get to ride this crazy life with him as my husband.
