The Venue Fontana’s minimalistic, contemporary and neutral inspired wedding was nothing short of a romantic dream come true for bride and groom, Candice & Kyle.
Raw woodchips and dried foraged palm leaves formed a welcoming aisle to the forest
ceremony where a contemporary display of lush pampas grass, dried tropical palm leaves,
white David Austen roses, lush white orchids and anthuriums formed an elegant arch for
Candice and Kyle to pledge their true love.
From the ceremony, guests were welcomed into the Fontana Family’s trendy brewery, East Coast Brewing Company, owned and run by Rocco Fontana. Here guests enjoyed Rocco’s craft beer and were offered a lavish harvest spread provided by Lupa Osteria Restaurant. Raw wooden tables were set with mirror runners to reflect The Venue Fontana’s contemporary artful branches with their hanging café lights (a permanent fixture), suspended from the high wooden beams.
Glass vases of various heights, an abundance of lit candles and pops of black anthuriums set the elegantly romantic theme throughout. Candice and Kyle chose a lighted “Better Together” neon sign, symbolising their true unending love for one another.
The Venue Fontana won the 2017 & 2018 Best Reception Wedding Venue award and were finalists in the Upcoming Wedding Venue category. In 2019 they won the Best Styled Concept award.
