Ryan and Kristy’s wedding on the Sunshine Coast was amazing. Kristy’s sister Shannon and her husband Jay are great friends of ours, and we consider their family to be like a second family to us. When Kristy and Ryan asked us to shoot their wedding day, we were absolutely thrilled! We travelled with our “second family” to Mexico back five years ago – so we had been looking forward to another wedding with this wonderful group of people and in such a beautiful location.
The guests stayed at the Rockwater Resort in the small town of Secret Cove located along the Sunshine Coast. The resort was amazing, and totally unique. Along the coastline in the trees ran a boardwalk that joined tent suites where the guests stayed. The tent suites were large and luxurious, with doors that opened onto decks with the most amazing ocean views.
After a couple of days at the resort, it was time for Ryan and Kristy’s wedding day. The weather was absolutely beautiful. The sun was shinning, and it was very hot. Many of the guests enjoyed a dip in the pool before the ceremony.
A moment that I won’t forget anytime soon, was when Kristy’s father came to the door to check on his daughter. Kristy was in her wedding gown, ready to go – and he was overwhelmed at seeing his daughter as a bride for the first time that day. Everyone had been trying to keep their tears to themselves – but after the father of the bride entered the room there wasn’t a dry eye to be found.
Kristy and Ryan, it was a great honour to share this amazing weekend with you and your wonderful friends and family. We wish you many years of happiness together!
