Wedding Feature: Kylie & Jarrod
Kylie & Jarrod’s wedding is one for the books! It was such an honor to be a part of their special day at Stones of the Yarra Valley, which is a gorgeous wedding venue. Their reception was a blast and we had so much fun performing for them and their guests!
Marriage is something that concretes a love between two people. It signifies your devotion and willingness to journey through life together and through all life has to throw at you. It’s unconditional love, it’s laughter and tears, and it’s a forever commitment.Kylie & Jarrod on ‘Meaning of Marriage’ via Ivory Tribe
Kylie and Jarrod’s love story has spanned nine years, with their fate being sealed by a simple notion from a dear friend suggesting there was great potential between the two of them. And how right she was. It brought them to this day where after two years in the making, they were finally able to stand beside one another, surrounded by those they love most in the world.Ivory Tribe
They went about planning the day by firstly enlisting the help of seasoned experts, Paula and Annie from The Small Things Co who took charge and practically read Kylie and Jarrod’s minds when it came to creating the timeless and romantic aesthetic they were after. Think dashes of creams and latte roses and fairy floss pink orchids with the most superb floralscape and installations created by Wild Flos.
The whole evening was topped off with a literal bang, fireworks signalled the culmination of the most loving, heart-filled, elegant day and we’re so glad Shot from the Heart was able to capture it all on camera.
In July 2019 I had the ring ready at my parents’ house, it had been sitting there since March that year, waiting for just the right time to make its reveal. Kylie was already in New Zealand with her girlfriends and I was on my way with my two mates. I told them both “as soon as we get there, we need to get it done! I’m way too nervous for this!” We got off the plane, met the girls at our accommodation and jumped in the car on the way to the lake. It looked exactly how I pictured it, clear skies, ducks swimming in the lake and the snow-capped mountains in the background. My heart was racing so fast, not because I thought Kylie may say no, but because it was a moment that needed to be perfect! With the help of Kylie’s girlfriends, she was looking great and completely oblivious as to what was about to happen. As our friend Bianca gripped the camera, making sure to have the right settings, I got on one knee and asked her to marry me! Kylie was surprised and the moment was incredibly captured, the criteria was met. It was just as I envisioned. I couldn’t have done it without them. It was really enjoyable as well to have our friends there to celebrate with.Jarrod via Ivory Tribe
