Jordan and Jason – East Warburton Redwood Forest | Intimate Wedding surrounded by the beauty of the Magnificent Redwoods

“Thank you so much! We absolutely love them! You captured us and our day perfectly” – Jordan & Jason 

The perfect wedding or elopement location, the East Warburton Redwood Forest is a quick one hour drive from the Melbourne CBD. Above all, its beauty is not just the grand nature of the Redwoods but in that special ‘Redwood vibe’ that feels like it has a little magic in the air.

Firstly, Jordan and Jason married each other in a small, intimate wedding surrounded by 20 of their nearest and dearest in a quiet pocket of the East Warburton Redwood Forest. During the morning of this winter wedding, the rain threatened with dappled showers. However as luck would have it, it was clear skies for this outdoor ceremony. The celebrant shared personal stories of the couple in a beautiful ceremony.

Above all, I had the privilege of spending time with the couple after their ceremony before their reception. These two have such an incredible connection. It’s hard to put into words (I’m definitely more of a pictures than words kinda gal), but they just get each other. There is a real gentleness to their connection. The way that they support each other through the tiniest of moments. From Jason helping Jordan with the twigs in her gown, to Jordan brushing dried leaves from his jacket. In other words, it’s in the quiet moments where you can see the care they share for each other.

Congratulations Jordan and Jason on your beautiful day in the Redwoods!

I’m Marisa from Cadence and Grace Photography and I’m not your average Melbourne Wedding Photographer. To me, a wedding is the greatest celebration of the depths of human connection. When you know in your core that ‘your person’ makes you light up inside and that you can’t imagine a world without them. A wedding is a celebration of you finding each other in this crazy world. It’s your declaration screaming ‘Hells YES!’ to a lifetime of daily adventures, holiday planning, long brunches, eternally lost socks, long drives, trying to keep indoor plants alive and fights over which movie to watch together on Netflix. It’s a celebration of the real you, together and the perfectly imperfect.

Above all, when I document your wedding, I’m documenting a story and connection that is unique to the two of you. I’m showcasing its beauty in a day filled with fresh florals, champagne toasts, smiles (and often tears), proud grandparents, first kisses, cheese towers, drunken cousins and dance floor antics. The big moments and all the little moments in between.

I only take a limited number of weddings each year. To see if I’m available on your wedding day, drop me a message on my contact page or email me at . Marisa xx
