Gabriella and Zachary’s stunning wedding was held on Saturday 6th March, 2021. We asked them a few questions about their special day, read on for their answers in their own words.
How did you choose Indooroopilly Golf Club as your wedding venue?
Indooroopilly Golf Club was the only venue that we visited, and we fell in love with it on sight. We wanted to have our ceremony and reception in the same location as it was important for us to minimise the logistics on the day. IGC had beautiful scenery and plenty of locations for our photographs, as well as exceptionally friendly staff and a funky vibe inside with the lilypad carpets.
How did you meet?
We met at 3 years old when we both joined the same kindergarten. Our kindergarten teacher just happened to be a celebrant, so of course we had to have her officiate the wedding.
How did Zachary pop the question?
Zachary made up a story that we had to rescue his brother (and partner) from the top of Mount Cootha, where they had suffered an “accident”. When we got to the top, Zachary played a pre-made video on his phone for Gabriella of photos through their relationship to the song “I see the light” from Disney’s ‘Tangled’. Gabriella cried so much that she still hasn’t said yes.
Ceremony Musical Choices
Bride’s Entrance: Can you feel the love tonight (acoustic) – The Lion King
Ceremony Exit: You make my dreams come true – Hall and Oates
Reception Musical Choices
Reception Entrance: Crazy little thing called love – Queen
First Dance: I see the light – Tangled (Sung by the bride’s sister)
Favourite Wedding Day memory?
We were really lucky to have great weather on the day. Near the end of the ceremony it looked like we were about to get a downpour, but instead a rainbow appeared once we became husband and wife.
Did you include any personal touches to your wedding day?
We had a blended modern Jewish wedding. Our friends stood with us as our chuppah holders for the Jewish components of our ceremony. We also included our grandparents in a photo display as well as in our speeches. The bride performed Amy Winehouse’s Valerie to get the dance floor started, replacing the signature name with Zachary.
