How They Met

Stephanie and James were both living their best single lives, unaware that they were destined to make each other’s lives even better. Stephanie recalls how their first date didn’t go as planned because she chickened out just 30 minutes before meeting James. However, fate intervened, and they soon found themselves joking about a rough week at work and the need for a Negroni. 

Date #2 was set, and from the moment Stephanie stepped into James’ car, she knew he was her new best friend. Their first date at Da Mario’s felt magical, with the waitress even believing they had known each other for years. James’s declaration, “You know you are stuck with me forever,” didn’t make Stephanie flinch, confirming their instant connection.

The Proposal

James and Stephanie share a love for the finer things in life, always seeking the best experiences. James orchestrated a stunning proposal at their favorite hotel, Pier One. He told Stephanie to pamper herself, get a new outfit, and prepare for a staycation, something they enjoyed doing occasionally. Stephanie’s mother subtly hinted that something special was happening, urging her to look her best for a beautiful dinner. 

James exceeded expectations with a breathtaking proposal setup on the balcony, complete with a “MARRY ME” sign, roses, and champagne. The moment was made even more special with a surprise visit from their families and a private dinner at Rockpool, their favorite restaurant. The weekend was filled with excitement and celebration, surrounded by loved ones.

The Wedding

Planning their wedding for just under two years, Stephanie and James knew they wanted a Sydney city venue, reflecting their love for the area. From the moment they met with Carmen at Crown Sydney, they felt it was the perfect place. Despite the torrential rain the night before the wedding and a minor mishap with a roof leak, the day turned out beautifully. The sun shone brightly, and Stephanie and James felt immense love from everyone in the room. Their vendors were outstanding, especially the photographers who made them feel at ease, turning the biggest party of their lives into an unforgettable event.

Favorite Elements and Unique Highlights

Stephanie and James focused on entertainment and good food rather than extravagant florals and styling. Their entrance with Zaffet Lebnen on the drums and a performance by the talented singer Jacinta set an energetic tone. Lefemme, a girl group, and Jacinta with her crew from Saints Sound Entertainment ensured the night’s entertainment was memorable. Personalized details, such as floral arrangements designed by Stephanie’s mum and made by her dad, added a unique touch. The wedding reflected their personalities, from the suits and dress to the food and the thoughtful detail of personalized thongs for dancing.

Unique Inspirations

A special touch to the wedding came from the bride’s parents, who have a background in interior design and building. Their expertise was instrumental in crafting custom and unique centerpieces that made a bold statement. The internal color palette of the Crown’s Pearl Ballroom, along with its intricate wall patterns, served as inspiration for the overall styling.

Overall Theme and Styling

The wedding theme was a blend of classic, modern, and elegant with a touch of luxury, perfectly suited to the Crown Ballroom and its impeccable service. The venue made them feel special from the moment they walked in, with top-notch food and drink quality, and a ballroom that aligned with their vision. The room’s ambiance, along with the excellent condition of the chairs and tables, created a show-stopping venue in the heart of Sydney city, embodying Stephanie and James’s love story.

“Leading up to the big day was surreal and stressful, but my bridal shower was my favorite event. It was perfect to celebrate with all my favorite people. James was excited to move into our new house and loved getting that organized. Our favorite moment on the wedding day was our entrance; we felt on top of the world! James surprised me with the first dance, which was another perfect moment. Even though we were sad the day ended, debriefing in our beautiful hotel suite and ordering room service was a fun highlight. Waking up to breakfast with our wedding party at the hotel made it feel like the celebration continued.”
