Anies looked every bit the beautiful bride in her Rachel Gilbert gown, and makeup by HD Makeup Artistry.  The floral designs by Pretty Petal and Co were picture-perfect, which went beyond the lovely blooms to the rustic greenery throughout the venue.

The table décor and bonbonniere tied in with the rustic theme of the Massaros Winery wedding venue, with personalised wooden names for seating arrangements.

Anies & Travis’ Love Story

Anies vows to Travis

Travis, I met you when I was only 18 and it is fair to say that the person standing in front of me today is certainly not the same person I met all those years ago. In all the years that have passed you have grown and changed so much, I have met so many different versions of you and I have fallen in love with you over and over again.  I am certain that I will continue falling in love with every version of you that I will meet in all our years to come. All the best moments in life are made so much better just by having someone to share them with, and together I am certain we will have a life full of happiness and adventure. I promise to you that I will share in every special moment with you and celebrate every victory. I will help to carry the weight of your burdens, and comfort you in times of sadness but, above all else, I promise that you will always feel loved, supported and appreciated. Finally, I promise you all the years left of my life, by your side, as your wife.

Travis vows to Anies

Anies, I stand before you today as a person who has been through so much with you – we have grown up together. So many shared experiences that have helped to shape us into the people we are today. You have influenced so many of the great things that have happened in my life. You make me happier than I could ever imagine, and more loved than I ever thought possible. I marry you today with no hesitation, and with so much excitement for our future. I promise to kiss you to sleep every night, to be attentive to you, to celebrate the many great things that are ahead of us, and to console you when things don’t go your way. I will listen to you with compassion and understanding and speak to you with encouragement. I promise to be as much of a rock for you, as you are for me. Our marriage is a promise that you will never face this world alone, I will always be there, by your side, being your biggest supporter for the rest of our lives as husband and wife.
