Kasey and Ben’s wedding day was filled with the warmth and love of their family and friends plus as an added bonus, the weather gods came to the party by turning on a beautiful South Coast day which was just perfect to celebrate the beginning of their together forever journey. Kasey and Ben selected Silos Restaurant as the location for their reception. Silos is located on a green hill just outside Berry, which features two silos that almost a century ago was used to store grain.
The love story of Kasey & Ben began in August/September of 2008 when they went on a double date arranged by Kasey’s best friend. Both were feeling very nervous, but by the end of that evening they had exchanged their first kiss and the rest is history. Four years later they moved in together and on 16 July 2015, Ben arranged a weekend away in the Blue Mountains, where he could not have organised a more romantically perfect setting to ask Kasey to be his wife. Snow, roses and champagne, Kasey in tears when asked and the answer was a resounding yes!
They exchanged vows and became one at St. Marys Star Of The Sea in Gerringong earlier in the afternoon then returned to Silos for photographs around the picturesque property whilst guests enjoyed wine tasting. Soon it was time to commence the festivities! Entering to two songs from Grease by Olivia Newton John & John Travolta, the wedding party, then Kasey and Ben entered the Marquee adjacent to Silos Restaurant to great applause and twirling napkins!
Following an exquisite entrée, it was time for our first set of speeches. First up was Ben’s Grandfather Mick, then Ben’s Mum Vicki and followed by Kasey’s Dad Peter. Lovely speeches from each one of them with beautiful sentiments being expressed about our newlyweds. An emotional father daughter dance then captivated the guests as Kasey and Peter shared a special moment on the dance floor. Some fun with the Newlywed Game and then it was time for guests to enjoy the delicious main meal.
The second set of speeches commenced with Maid of Honour Hannah recounting the story of the first date. Best man and Ben’s younger brother, Josh was next and last but not least, the man of the moment, Ben! Ben expressed how he always dreamed of his wedding day, how it would be and the type of person his wife would be. He went on to convey how Kasey exceeded his dream and vision of the person he would marry and how this wedding day was better than he ever imagined. The love Ben has for Kasey is obvious, he does not hide it and it is returned in spadesful by Kasey – truly they are a perfect match!
At the end of the speech it was time for their first dance as husband and wife to a very unique version of Keith Urban’s “Your Everything” – another special moment which Kasey and Ben will remember forever and once again captivating the guests. They then cut their wedding cake before Ben shared a dance with his mum, Vicki – which was just beautiful. It was now party time, time for everybody to let their hair down and have some fun!
In what seemed to be too soon, it had come to the time to start wrapping up the festivities, but not before the bouquet toss, garter toss, everybody joining in on the dance floor for one final dance and then Kasey and Ben departing through a guard of honour to commence their happy ever after!
Kasey and Ben, it was nothing but a joy to get to know you both along with your family & friends. I feel blessed to have been granted the huge honour to play a part in your amazing wedding day as your South Coast Wedding MC and South Coast Wedding DJ. I feel privileged to have witnessed first hand how much you both love, cherish and how devoted you are to each other. It makes my heart happy to see how you both value family and friendships. It was nothing but a pleasure every step of the way and I know that your love will continue to grow with every passing day. To echo words spoken by Ben’s mum Vicki, love is all you need and if you have love, nothing is impossible and happiness is assured! May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!
