Tell Us About Your Love Story & Proposal?
Our love story began nine years ago when we shared our first kiss at Pebble beach, Dromana. Our forever began at that exact spot when Dom proposed on September 30th 2015.
What Was Your Wedding Day Highlight?
Our favourite part of the wedding was our first dance. Domenic and I decided on a song that we both have loved since we met. When I got up to do our first dance, I realised the song was different to what we had originally chosen together. It was a song by Delta Goodrem called “you and you alone” that I always play and sing to Dom in the car on repeat… The song reminds me of Dom and I constantly tell him that. It’s not his favourite song but he wanted it because I loved it so much and he loved how much I loved it. When I heard the song I instantly started crying. He whispered in my ear “can you sing it to me like always”. Dom organised with the DJ before the wedding to change the song without telling me. That moment was really special to both of us! We honestly felt like no one else was in the room and we were in the car like always.
Do You Have Any Words Of Advice For Other Couples?
Don’t let anything before the wedding cloud what the wedding day is truly about. The lead up, is just the preparation… it’s the wedding day and saying ‘I do to forever’ that truly matters most.
