Renee & Adam

How and when did the two of you meet?
Adam and I started dating when we were 19, we had met in high school in year 12 🙂
Tell us all about your proposal story:
It was the 25th of November 2018, we had just moved house to a property that was one street back from the beach in Point Cartwright. Adam had convinced me to get up at sunrise after a very full on few days of moving house. I was so tired and tried everything I could to convince him to stay in bed. I had no idea what he had planned! We walked down to the beach and I was staring out watching the sunrise while Adam set everything up. When I turned around he was on one knee with our Labrador Jasper beside him, and asked me to marry him! (Crazy story, 12 months later I went into labour on the 25th of November 2019 and had our daughter one day later on the 26th of November 2019).
What does marriage mean to you?
Marriage is getting to share your life with your best friend forever! It’s finding that one person that gets to know all of you and loves every part of you no matter what.
Why did you choose Hideaway Weddings?
The people! The venue is incredible and was the perfect back drop for our special day, but the people really made it for us! Having such a beautiful group of people care about your special day as much as you really made the whole experience that much more special!
Did you incorporate any traditions or perhaps do something a little different?
We didn’t really do anything different, I guess ultimately we just flowed through the day with a very cruisey go with the flow attitude and it couldn’t of been more perfect, our little girl ran around on the day and played at our feet during the ceremony and it just made for the most authentic and special memories
Describe your theme for the day and the inspiration behind it:
The theme was really just us! I wanted to be authentic to who we were, choosing the colours we love and just creating a really relaxed vibe that was authentic to us! Pink and neutral tones are my favourite! I knew straight up that I wanted orchids incorporated into the floral arrangements as they are my mother’s favourite flowers. We chose a cocktail style setting so that everyone could mingle and sit wherever without the pressure of having to deal with seating charts and a bridal table ect which worked perfectly for us. The groomsmen were in two toned suits! We chose to have them in a really light colour which is normally typical of the groom but we just really loved how much Adam stood out in the darker suit jacket with the boys.
My dress was my dream dress! I brought my dress 2 years before we actually got married due to having to postpone with COVID! I was so worried that I would not feel the same about my dress but chose a Madi lane bridal gown (ELORA) and it was perfect! I was able to wear it 3 different ways on the day, off the shoulder, up on the shoulder as straps and then strapless and it really did make me feel like the most beautiful I’ve ever felt!
We then chose luv bridal bridesmaid dresses for the 4 most important girls in my life! I wanted them to be able to style their dress the way they wanted, bringing there own personality through on the day which worked out just perfectly.
What were the highlights of your day for you? (Renee)
Walking down that aisle to Adam and finally getting to say my vows to him! Having our daughter sitting at our feet and just feeling like we were finally officially our own little Taylor family
What were the highlights of your day for you? (Adam)
Seeing my little girl walk down the aisle knowing that her mother wasn’t going to be far behind. Such a special day made even more magical by the staff of Hideaway Weddings.
Any tips or words of wisdom to offer other couples?
Try not to get caught up on making your day perfect for everyone else, this day is all about you and your love for each other! Don’t feel pressured to sit with every single person and keep everyone happy. Dance, have fun, you get one night and it goes so quickly so enjoy every minute of it.
