Bride In Focus, The Rocks Posted On: February 17, 2014

Today we received this beautiful letter from Kyle and Kirby who recently married at our newest venue The Rocks, Yandina.  First Class Functions provided the exclusive wedding coordination of their wedding including the catering and all of the styling of the ceremony and reception.

THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for what we will always remember as one of the best days of our lives.   Although a few things  didn't go to plan on the day but from what I have heard you guys made it seem like it was how things were meant to run all along.   Annie, the styling was simply amazing and exceeded all my expectations.  It was relaxed and carefree at the same time as being so classy and romantic.  It's like you took it right out of my head and bought it to life.  The venue is fantastic but it's your touches that truly made it so spectacular.  During the planning nothing was too big or too small, even when I asked you if we could do an extra couple of things only days beforehand it was never a problem.  You put me at ease on a number of occasions and I can honestly say I didn't even give the venue set up a 2nd thought when we were getting ready on the day, I trusted you completely.  John, thank you so, so much for running the show at the reception.  You were there whenever I had a question before I even knew I did!! The bus debacle put us behind schedule but you and the staff just took it in your stride and everything ran like clockwork (just later than originally planned)!  The staff at the reception were INCREDIBLE, a number of our guests have specifically mentioned how great they were.  Please pass on our most sincere thanks to them. A special big thank you for our margaritas, it was a great, little sentimental reminder of the night we met.  And after organising the cider, I totally forgot about it and didn't have any!! I hope someone else drank it! The food.  Oh. My. Goodness.  The food was, simply put, divine.  My only regret being I didn't make myself eat more!! The mini burgers, that I was sceptical about, were the biggest hit.  One of my friends claims she ate 8 of them!  Everything was of the highest quality and there was so much to go around.  That was probably my main concern with a cocktail reception but pretty much everyone I've spoken to since has said they tried all the canapés & mini mains. The old cliché about your own wedding day going by in a flash is certainly based on fact; it seemed to be over before it barely began! Every time we think back to the day we recall something else and get excited all over again!  I can't put down in words how perfect our wedding turned out for us & despite the few (not so minor) hiccups nothing could ruin it for us on the day, and both of you and your staff played an integral part in ensuring that.

Thank you for making it everything we dreamed of and more.  Kyle & Kirby (& Lily) Merritt xo
