Yue + Tao Stones of the Yarra Valley
Our love for weddings is equally matched by our love of a good challenge.
So when Yue & Tao came to us without a venue or a single supplier in mind but with a strong desire to do something breathtakingly beautiful and an unreasonable 4 week lead time, our entire team was challenged to awaken from our cosy winter slumber and design something BIG!! The turn around time was super tight but sometimes to make something big happen you just have to be unreasonable!!
Stones of the Yarra Valley was our venue of choice with its natural beauty, radiant light and those wooden beams *squeal*. The entire room was cleared of all surrounding furniture to allow the focus to be on the central table and installation. The layered installation was created by using 200 individually hand weaved garlands of native foliage and florals. Each garland was suspended from specific heights, framing the guests during their relaxed lunch. The layering continued with the tablescape design, using slate and stone crockery, oatmeal linen napkins, personalised menus and individual succulents. Brushed gold cutlery sat on the exposed timber table with wild native foliage garlands running the entire 12 metre length of the table.
The end result brought our artist bride who always knew she wanted her wedding to be striking yet organic to tears, an achievement well worth the 8 hour bump in. A big thank you to Yue and Tao, for being super chilled human beings, allowing our creative rhythm to flow and our best work to shine. To our team, your talent and passion would be alarming, if it wasn’t so damn consistent – bravo! And to the wonderful team at Stones, it is always a pleasure to have a play date at your place. Thank you for continuously going above and beyond for our couples.
