Polka Dot Bride Feature :: A Modern Cocktail Wedding
For Kate and Caleb, it was important that their wedding reflect their own relaxed sense of self. They chose a picturesque farm by the sea, they hired food trucks to dish up an informal feast and they danced for six-hours straight! With Jason Corroto behind the camera, this was the most joyous next step for the pair who met on Tinder.
Caleb popped the question just before a holiday to Bali and we’re going to start off today’s tale with the story of how he swept Kate off her feet. “The night before we flew to Bali, Caleb suggested we get a hotel room in the city to avoid the early morning drive from the Northern Beaches to the airport. I came straight from work and met Caleb in the city. He said he needed to use the bathroom and remembered that he had the key for an old skyscraper he used to do electrical work on.
Once inside the building, Caleb asked if I wanted to go up to the roof, like old times. Caleb took me up to the rooftop on one of our first dates and had said that this is where he was ‘going to propose one day’ and I was thinking he would say anything to woo me.
So up to the rooftop we went (which is not meant for public access). As Caleb opened the door, it started raining. We had to climb up ladders and duck under poles. Once we had done all of the climbing, we stood overlooking an uninterrupted view of Darling Harbour and Caleb dropped to one knee. In the pouring rain, I said ‘yes’, without a doubt in my mind!
Kate and Caleb are completely enamored with their wedding photos thanks to Jason Corroto. Says Kate of their photographer, “I cannot speak highly enough. He was the very first vendor I locked in for the wedding aside from the venue. Jason is a friend of Caleb’s and mine; I almost changed the date of the wedding when he was unsure if he was available.
He is so amazing at capturing those small, special moments while being so discreet. I felt so comfortable and the photos look so incredibly stunning!”
