Beautiful Australian Wedding at the Victorian SGI Culture Centre

Brianna Kozlarek / Wednesday August 16, 2017
We love Wednesdays. #HumpDay and #WeddingWednesday all rolled into one? What could be better!
Today we’re featuring a warm, sunny Australian wedding. This beautiful couple had both a traditional Buddhist ceremony in addition to a modern ceremony at the Victorian SGI Australia Culture Centre followed a very romantic beachside reception at the Encore St Kilda.  The bride decided to showcase her favorite color for her bridesmaids – a light violet which was so pretty! Their invitations were letterpressed in gold which was so elegant. Their photos were taken at the Royal Exhibition Building, a place where the bride & groom spent a lot of time together – for their optometry exams! Love a special touch like that. Samantha Ong Photography captured their beautiful day:

The Reception

We love how they used long tables to go along with the long space of the reception, as well as kept the focus on the gorgeous view at the top end of the room which was the beach. The pastel centerpieces were gorgeous. But you have to check out their chocolate cake. It was a very non-traditional wedding cake in that it was square and did not have height! Because the groom just LOVES desserts he had to make sure they got a rich chocolate cake which they obtained from a local chocolateur, Le Petit Gateau. Congratulations to the happy couple!
