So Liana and I met each other on TC a few years back now. At the time I thought she was cute, but it was a pity she lived in a different state and was 7 years younger than me. Anyway fast forward 3 months and we were talking pretty much every day, after finding out our mutual love of tikis, rockabilly, old cars, architecture etc Benzart saw what was going on and did his part to help things along

Anyway, Marcus (mr Tiki Beat himself) was having a luau, and it was a perfect excuse to fly interstate and meet her. Needless to say it went pretty well! What followed was two years of doing the interstate relationship thing, seeing each other every 4-6 weeks, with visits based around hot rod runs and rockabilly gigs in each others cities. Living together was just as awesome, so I asker her to marry me.

The plan from the start was a fun and relaxed day with family and friends, and that’s exactly what we got. We also wanted something that reflected US as a couple. So naturally it had to include our EK Holdens, our mates old cars, lots of rustic and vintage décor, great tunes (blues, rockabilly and rock and roll), and of course great food. We coordinated the whole thing, and bought or made all the décor (even the 75m of bunting, the bouquet made from vintage brooches, all the signage and stationery). I think scouring the op shops and antique stores in little country towns every time we went away was one of the best bits!

We also did a unity cocktail (of our own recipe) in a tiki mug for a unity ceremony, to celebrate how we met on here.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Beautiful pictures, looks like it was a fun party. "Unity cocktail", I like it. Much better than some damned candle or vase full of mixed colored sand!

Dude that looks like a butt-kicking awesome time. LOVE the pictures and that you guys have such an incredible support structure of friends and family that participated in the look and feel of your special day. You best be framing most every one of those pictures for your house, each one is totally magazine quality. Nope, I'm not jealous much (and I LOVED our wedding day). Ha. May the rest of your lives together be this magical and perfect!

This is one of the best weddings I've ever seen. How cool, the setting, the chairs the fabric triangles just on and on creative.
You know a lot of people with vintage cars. I hope those without them got to attend as well.

Congratulations to you both, you are a beautiful couple, Wendy and Dan

Thanks guys. No, you didn't have to have an old car to attend! They were great for people to check out though. We just had a quiet week up the coast for our honeymoon, but looking at coming over stateside next year.
