A classically elegant wedding with a contemporary twist Couple: Lisa & Richard Location: Museum of Contemporary Art, The Rocks Sydney While Lisa was travelling in South America, Richard sent her some love quotes written by Khalil Gibran. At the end of the quotes he wrote “and there is one more quote to come but that will have to wait til later...” Two years later, Richard asked Lisa to read the book containing her quotes. When she turned the page to read her final quote, she saw a note written by Richard: “Marry me?” Lisa wore a strapless Vera Wang gown from Helen Rodrigues, with a fitted bodice, cream sash, and voluptuous tulle skirt. A colour theme of ivory and cream was given a striking splash of midnight blue, echoed in the bridesmaids’ strapless, floor-length dresses. Lisa’s Oscar de la Renta shoes took her from aisle to dance floor in style. After a traditional ceremony at St Mary’s North Sydney, the couple and their 150 guests enjoyed a reception at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The menu was a highlight, with contemporary Australian cuisine and a buffet of traditional Italian and Lebanese sweets. The couple’s first dance was to Frank Sinatra’s “It Had to Be You”.
