Olivia and Dom’s luxurious wedding

Olivia and Dom’s luxurious wedding was full of glitz and glamor.

The rest is history …

Olivia and Dom’s love story began back in 2016 when their eyes were closed and the butterflies started. Olivia went to her hairdressers as she had done many times before, but didn’t know that her life would change forever. Dom was a hairdresser in the salon and after introducing himself the friendship grew and they soon developed into love.

Highlight of 2019 …

When it came time to ask the question, Dom had arranged an intimate and romantic dinner with a view of the port of Woolloomooloo in the beautiful Otto Ristorante as an early birthday party. This restaurant holds a special place in their hearts as they would celebrate Valentine’s Day together here every year. “I later realized that Dom just couldn’t wait for my birthday dinner, which was due the following weekend,” says Olivia.

All things luxe …

The couple knew their big day should have a classic and romantic look with a lot of luxury. Olivia’s inspiration for the wedding theme was based on her luxurious and modern dress. Her custom wedding invitations, candy dish, and unitary candle set have been styled white with a magical gold foil finish to compliment her wedding design. Each guest received a beautiful candle as a bonbonniere, which should be a nice reminder of the wedding day of Dom and Olivia and the love for each other.

The wedding …

The original plan for their wedding was to celebrate with 300 guests from friends and family. Since Dom was Lebanese and Olivia was Macedonian, a major wedding was one of the traditions they looked forward to very much. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and restrictions, the number of guests had to be reduced. They could still officially say “I’m doing” with a ceremony at St. Joseph’s Maronite Catholic Church surrounded by 100 of their loved ones. The church was adorned with large bouquets of white roses that matched the wedding decor and luxurious theme.

Opulent celebrations …

The lavish reception took place at Doltone House in Sylvania Waters. The room was filled with crisp white flowers and flamboyant crystal candle holders on each table that looked spectacular given the dark features of the room. Each table was alternatively designed with a combination of acrylic flower stands and stylish candle holders as the centerpiece, with black linen tablecloths and black chairs as an offset. The main feature of the room was the long head table where the wedding reception was housed in the back of the room. The table and chairs were of a clean style that exaggerated the stunning bright white flowers and candles that were displayed along the entire length. The stunning 7-tier cake, decorated in white and provided with gold calligraphy of the initials and the date, was the focus on an acrylic table with an orchid element.

Traditional entertainment …

The entertainment can only be described as traditional and extraordinary. The couple enjoyed incredible live drummers both at home and at the ceremony and then moved on to the reception. Throughout the evening, a mix of traditional Lebanese musicians and Macedonian bands filled the room with their talent so that all guests could celebrate and dance. The reception was hosted by Jacob Hacklany, who also performed R&B and classic hits for guests to let their hair down! Later that night Jacob played John Legend’s “All of Me” for Olivias and Dom’s first dance, which was a truly magical affair. The bride and groom hovered in the heart of the room, which was pervaded by cloud-like smoke, and dazzled in the light of the sparklers that shot around them.

Dream wedding dress …

Olivia wore an elegantly detailed dress with nude and silver beads designed by Micheline Mokdassi. Micheline’s uniqueness, creativity and attention to detail brought the design to life. Olivia’s dress exuded luxury and modern essence, from the intricate Swarovski pearls and detachable overskirt to the dramatic sleeves and sheer backless design secured with traditional back buttons. The dress was the result that Micheline had designed from 5 wedding dresses that Olivia had presented while sketching her dream wedding dress. Dom wore a traditional black tuxedo with a patterned blazer to complement Olivia’s gorgeous dress and was finished off with sleek black cufflinks.

Few tips …

When it comes to wedding preparation, this wonderful couple had plenty of advice to share. Your number one advice? “Live in the moment (at least like us for a few months). Don’t plan the wedding right away, there will be enough time for that. In the end, always think about” why “you are” getting married “.
