Hailey & Jay

The sun set on the rooftop as champagne glasses twinkled and guests feasted on beautiful cheese and incredible music. A glorious Melbourne night set the scene for a modern rooftop wedding that the guests would never forget and thanks to Jessica Abby  we’re sharing all the moments and stories with you!

Hailey fills us in on how she and Jay came to be. “We met at Jay’s sisters’ wedding. Who says you can’t meet your husband to be at a wedding??”


Luci DiBella created the bride’s beautiful beaded gown, she tells “I had my dress made by the wonderful Luci Dibella. I fell in love with the glamorous all beaded fabric when I first saw it made up in another design. I had an idea of how I wanted the dress to look and Luci worked with me to achieve it – I could not have been happier with the finished product. I absolutely love it!!! ”

Hailey and Jay chose one venue for their wedding – the stunning The Deck At Circa The Prince. Hailey notes “The team there were amazing!”

The bride walked down to an acoustic version of “Something I Need” by Alex Hobbs.

Jo Betz officiated the ceremony, Hailey remembering “We wanted a relaxed intimate vibe for our ceremony encapsulating the intimate details of our relationship and how we met. Family and friends commented on how lovely our ceremony was and our celebrant Jo Betz was amazing.”

Of their photographer, the bride remarks “Jessica Abby was a delight to work with and produced such beautiful pictures from our big day. She made us both feel so at ease – fabulous experience.”

Personal touches were added throughout the day. The couple chose to donate to the Cancer Council in lieu of traditional favors and bought wheels of cheese from Emerald Deli as their wedding “cake”.

For their first dance, the newlyweds chose “Feel So Close” by Calvin Harris. Hailey telling “we both loved this song when we first met and started dating. We started our dance off with an acoustic version by Nelly Furtado then had our DJ mix it into the Calvin Harris dance version which immediately got everyone up on the dance floor.”

Congratulations on your marriage Hailey and Jay! Thank you for sharing your day with us! Thank you to Jessica Abby  for sharing today’s celebration!
