Kasey + Brooke
Kasey and Brooke met at a roller derby of all places and simply just hit it off. Kasey coaching Brooke when she was even more 'unco' than she is now. Kasey can recall her gorgeous smile and laugh on first impressions. If you ask Brooke though, they did actually meet 12 months prior, it was just that Kasey had no idea then who she was! Brooke tells me that on first impressions – Kasey was absolutely stunning!
I couldn’t stop smiling and literally turned to my best friend and said, I want to marry that girl!.
They believe that a successful marriage is based on being honest and having open communication. You need to just talk it out, or if in Brooke’s case just talk it over continuously so Kasey isn’t allowed to whinge about it again!
When Brooke tried to propose to Kasey it wasn’t exactly the most romantic proposal. Not even Brooke taking her top off on the top of a mountain would get Kasey out of the car that day. Brooke had made an advent calendar, (they both love Christmas) and every day Kasey would open a gift. On the 24th day, Brooke gets Kasey out of bed, much to her disgust to watch the sunrise. When she decided to just stay put in the car cause it was 5:00am Brooke finally gave up on Kasey getting out of the car and handed her the Grinch DVD, the one they watched on their very first date and shining brightly inside was the most amazing sparkly ring! What a story!
Brooke + Kasey choose to celebrate their wedding at The Budgie Smuggler in Ringwood. It is the most funky venue and I feel very lucky to be one of their preferred suppliers. The food is amazing and they know how to make a mean cocktail!
A snippet of Brooke's Vows... "I promise to always say good morning with a smile and to remember to always have the fridge stocked with Vanilla ice cream and ice magic. I promise to always admit when I’m wrong, which is of course is always because you are always right. I promise to always be by your side as a best friend, a listener, a motivator, a soul mate and a partner in crime and to remind you every day how truly beautiful I believe you are; And on days if you’re ever feeling down, remember remind you twice. But lastly, I promise no matter where life takes us that I will always do my best to make our life together a rather fucking wonderful adventure."
A Snippet from Kasey's Vows... "Thank you for teaching me to stand up for what I believe in, but also to deliver my messages with kindness and respect. I promise to always be your human, to adventure with you and to push you to achieve your goals. I promise to laugh with you when you're happy, lift you up when you're down and to love you unconditionally. Except when you bite your nails, I'm not okay with that. I promise to help you to be the best you that you can be, to be kind to you and to make sure you are kind to yourself. I also promise to always ask for a Milo just when you get comfy on the couch, because I’m kind of a jerk. Thank you for making life a rather wonderful fucking adventure".
It was fair to say that they had THE BEST DAY...
The girls were a blast to work with. Another awesome ceremony and night spent as their MC. They even had bets on who was going to look the HOTEST on the day. I think it would be fair to say they both WON. They both trumped each others expectations. And with a bride tribe like no other, they were only ever going to have a hell of party to celebrate.
