Mikhailla and Teddy are the match made in heaven who between them, have built a love to weather any storm. Having battled through unthinkable loss and hardship and joyously raising their child, Elle, the pair have waited with both patience and excitement for their wedding day to arrive.
Having first met on a night out in Brisbane, the pair immediately hit it off. A few dates later, the pair were inseparable – paving the way for their future together.
Originally set to be hosted outside, the weather took a turn for the worst and it looked like their ceremony plans would be shattered. After some quick thinking and speedy adjustments from their dream team at JJ Style Co, a gorgeous new setup was created. Mikhailla could only rave about the way in which it unfolded.
“It poured down an hour before our ceremony (good luck it is!) and not one bit was I stressed or worried, because I trusted her and knew that even though our ceremony would now have to be inside, that it would still be beautiful. The day was about that moment where we get married, say our vows, cry and are pronounced husband and wife and it was beautiful. Every little bit.” Says Mikhailla.
Nothing could rain on the pair’s parade as they celebrated surrounded by their nearest and dearest for an intimate and emotional wedding day.
“We were on the biggest high all day,” Says Mikhailla. “This is all we ever wanted. He makes me feel like I’m always good enough, like no dream is too big and that together we can do absolutely anything. We have the biggest plans but I know we are going to achieve them because as husband and wife nothing is too great.”
Her overall wedding style centred around natural, earthy tones and raw finishes combined with fresh white and hints of gold. Trickling oversized balloons marked the entrance to The Refinery – a chic inner-city venue characterised by its high exposed-beam ceilings and suave black interiors. Their reception refreshments included a luxe grazing table laden with fresh breads and crispbreads, charcuterie, fresh fruits and gourmet cheeses – all topped off with a gorgeous honeycomb frame.
