Skye + Gab’s wedding day was something incredibly special, I honestly don’t even know where to begin with these two phenomenal beauties! I can safely say that I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun planning and meeting with two clients than I have with these guys. From getting to know them over months of emailing to sharing wines together at our final meeting and then witnessing them walk back up the aisle as Mr + Mrs, I feel truly honoured to have been able to capture this story for them both!
Skye + Gab first met at Argyle House through a mutual friend almost 5 years ago now. Their first impressions of each other were rather interesting. Gab has this rather peculiar ability, as you will see towards the end of their night in the images below, Skye calls this ability of Gab’s ‘Bum Dancing’. She initially thought he had butt implants because his butt was quote ‘so BIG’! Gab’s first impression of Skye - I could marry this girl, aaaaand so their love story began.
They got engaged in what I feel is the most romantic place on earth, Central Park in NYC (so jelly). Skye didn’t see this coming and from the story I’ve heard its one of Gab’s favourite memories, she was so excited! They recently tied the knot at Rafferty’s resort on a rather weird seasonal day, from incredibly hot and sunny to windy, rainy, steamy and then clear… all in one day. I’ve been involved in weddings before where the rain has quite literally ruined the parade, but this did not phase their incredible Wedding Party. One of my favourite moments from their day is towards the end of their photos it began to bucket down rain, we all ran for cover under a nearby awning. Their bridal without missing a beat started playing music, dancing and started rehearsing their unique reception entrances. Nothing could ruin their parade!
Their reception was In-cred-ible! The speeches, next level! Everything from an in-flight themed reception safety rundown to an emotional groom speech about his stunner of a bride! The night kicked off, the dance floor was LIT featuring Gab’s signature ‘Bum Dancing’ of course! This was truly a party, a night that they will never forget! I don’t think I’ve ever felt more like a part of the family, from the emotional goodbye hugs at the end of the night to Gab kissing me on the cheek haha! I can’t even begin to thank Skye + Gab for letting me be a part of it all!
Anyway, I don’t want to ramble on, I tend to haha.
