Some say that young love does not last, but Joshua and Elyse defied those odds.
Having met in high-school, Joshua decided the perfect place to propose was in the classroom where they met, right next to their old desks. After Elyse said yes, “about 25 family and friends were hiding in the classroom closet and burst out,” surprising the bride to be.
Wearing an Essence of Australia dress, Elyse finally found her “fairytale dress” that beautifully fit their “elegance with a hint of gold” theme, with the illusion neckline and mid-length train completing her perfect look.
To add a personal touch, Joshua and Elyse created their own signs, table numbers and programs, giving the wedding an intimate and individual feel; although the favourite moments of the day were spent out on the dancefloor, celebrating with their closest friends and family.
