Kallista and Sam chose the light-filled Alto above Melbourne’s GPO as the canvas for their Dia de los Muertos inspired wedding. And who better to capture the moody affair than Free the Bird Photography?
The Mexican Day of the Dead festival might sound a little dark, but it’s actually a holiday which focuses on family and the celebration and remembrance of loved ones who have passed, so it’s really quite a fitting sentiment for a wedding day.
When it came to the venue, Kallista and Sam tell us Alto ticked all their boxes. “The moment we viewed the venue we knew it was the venue for us. It suited our personalities”. The addition of colourful flowers, sugar skulls and Mexican style bunting (papel picados) made for a unique reception space, with the ceremony held on the balcony beneath an arbour decorated with a skull and structural florals by North St Botanical.
When it came to the all-important food, the couple were delighted with their choice of caterer, sharing “The food by Damm Fine Food was exquisite.” With canape entrees, a sit down dinner and roving desserts, there was plenty of opportunity for guests to mingle.
