Oh goodness… where do we even start with this amazing wedding.
From the moment we first met these guys we knew that this was going to be a wedding to remember! Callie & Ace had a ‘Plan A’ and a ‘Plan B’ for their big day. ‘Plan A’ was to hold their ceremony (including all 80 guests!) at the top of the Cardrona Ski field. The logistics were crazy, but they were determined, and everything was planned to a T with some fantastic organizing by the couple and help from the Cardrona Staff. We were under strict instructions to get loads of fun candids of their Western Australian family and friends struggling with the concept of getting on a chair lift, and seeing snow for the first time! Brilliant!
After hours and hours of planning… the day came around after a week of brilliant sunshine, but alas, ‘Plan A’ was not to be, as NZ was hit by the worst snow storm in 30 years.
Saying that…’Plan B’ was by no means a ‘Plan B’! Callie & Ace were married at the beautiful Rippon Hall here in Wanaka. The margaritas were flowing and the hall was beautifully decorated with glass bottles, retro cameras, vintage bikes…good friends were playing the guitar…. it was absolutely perfect! There was no snowy mountain… but it didn’t matter in the slightest. Callie & Ace’s day was always going to be about them, and wherever they are, fun times seem to follow…. even if it means popping to their favourite cafe/bar in the middle of their location photos.
Cal & Ace – Thank you both SO MUCH for being who you are! For being such an fun loving and beautiful couple… and for inviting us along to be part of such a great knees up.
