THE FIRST SIGHT
Aaron and I went to the same primary school. We were in the same class in grade 5. I always thought he was cute but I was very shy back then. We did not really speak until years later at my 19th birthday party when I bumped into him at a local club. We got talking and we danced together all night. A few nights later he asked me to the movies where we held hands most of the time. I did not want anything serious at the time but Aaron would message me every day and he fought so hard to win me over that I could not resist. It did not take me long to realise that he was perfect for me. We have now been dating for 10 years. He is everything that I have ever wanted in a partner. I love that he treats me like a princess every day. Once I fell for him, I fell hard and I love every moment that I spend with him.
Aaron and I are very big Disney fans. After 9 years of dating we finally decided to go to the most magical place on earth… Disney World! On our first day there, Aaron got down on one knee in front of the Cinderella Castle and asked me to marry him. I was not expecting it at all! I said “Yes” of course. It was so amazing and I could not have asked for a better proposal.
We chose our venue because it was rustic and magical, which was really important for us. The Yarra Ranges Estate definitely delivered on that as it was dressed in warm fairy lights, that created the special, magical atmosphere that we were looking for.
This was the first venue that we looked at and we loved it right away. We looked at 3 other venues after and they had nothing in comparison.
One of my favourite parts of the wedding would definitely be when Aaron and I did a spur of the moment dance to “Let It Go” from “Frozen”. Aaron and I know all the words so when the song came on, we couldn’t help but to put on a spectacular performance for our guests. Everyone crowded around us and started filming. We are both known for our crazy dancing and it was just a perfect way to end the night.
Another incredible part of our wedding was seeing my beautiful best friend, who was a bridesmaid, standing at the altar. This was unexpected as she was unwell due to her fight with cancer. This was such a touching moment as we were unsure that she was even going to be able to make it to our wedding.
I LOVED MY DRESS! The Berta Bella dress was perfect for me. I tried on about 15 dresses before this one and I was starting to get scared that I would never find the dress that I had in my mind. When I put on the Berta Bella dress, I knew it was the one! Everything about it was perfect and I could not imagine wearing anything else. The dress made me feel sexy and elegant at the same time. It was better than anything I could’ve ever imagined. My favourite feature was definitely the slit up the side that made it truly unique as I had never seen anything like it before.
FINDING THE ONE
I brought my three bridesmaids, my mum and her best friend with me to RC. I loved the way the staff treated us. They all made me feel very special and it was the experience that I was searching for when choosing a wedding dress. Once I said “Yes” to the dress, we were given champagne to celebrate and all the staff members came in to congratulate me and tell me how beautiful I looked in the dress. It was truly a great experience and I’m so thankful for that.
