At the Grooving the Moo festival in Townsville in 2012 through mutual friends.
Alicia: The first thing I noticed about Chevy is his smile. It's so infectious and it can brighten up anyone's day. He is also very cheeky and funny, both of these qualities I found most attractive in the opposite sex.
Chevy: Alicia is a fun person to be around, she makes me laugh and became the one I always wanted to be around.
Chevy proposed in Miyajima, Japan. One of my most favourite places on earth. I was surprised and nervous and excited all at the same time. The feeling was so overwhelming my instant reaction was to kneel down next to him when he was down on bended knee.
Planning your wedding at The Brisbane Golf Club
Where was your dress from, what made you choose your dress?
Danni Dress - Made With Love Bridal
When your married friends give advice and say 'when you find the dress, you will know' - they are completely right. After going through at least 6 different shops, trying on dress after dress, I started to become anxious. There were dresses that were nice, but I just didn't picture myself walking down the aisle in them. I wanted Chev to be gobsmacked when he saw me. I wanted a dress that was elegant with a hint of sass.
I made a last minute booking at Made With Love Bridal Boutique on the Gold Coast during my visit to Brisbane. My bridesmaids and mother came with me on a road trip. As soon as I tried on Danni dress, everyone was speechless. So much emotion came over me as soon as I looked into the mirror. No other dress compared and I could not stop thinking about it. At that moment I knew that it was the dress for me.
Where was your ceremony and reception?
Brisbane Golf Club
This venue ticked all the boxes. It is one of the best for value for money, a lovely events coordinator that will help put your mind at ease. Every time I have visited the staff have been fantastic, the menu is simply divine and the venue is beautiful and elegant.
Was there any unique or funny moments that stood out in your mind about your wedding at the Brisbane Golf Club?
Chevy: My beautiful wife sang a song for me, and did a shoey. What more could you want in a life partner.
Alicia: It was sheer serendipity that it became foggy on our wedding night; when Chevy proposed in Miyajima it was also a foggy day. Chevy almost delayed the proposal due to the weather but we both were glad that he went through with it as we agreed that the fog made the day even more unique and beautiful. It was obviously meant to be on both of these days and we couldn't turn down a great photo opportunity on the wedding night!
And a massive thank you to Adam for making our day awesome and for making us feel so relaxed. We have absolutely loved the photos so far - you've really captured some beautiful and raw moments between Chev and I and we can't wait to see the rest of the photos!
