“I love your smile, I love your creativity and I love the way that you, don’t
just complement my brand of craziness – you actually add to it!” ~
Aaron to Emily during his speech.
Emily and Aaron met through Emily’s guitar teacher from high school, who happened to be a friend of Aaron’s. Whilst there were a couple of quick, pleasant exchanges, because Aaron, who happened to be in a band at the time, was totally focused on the band and no real conversation took place. Sub-consciously however he was thinking that Emily was really cute. It was not until a costume party, where Emily dressed as Strawberry Short Cake and Aaron as Duff Man, that they spent some significant time together speaking. Little did thy know that the spark had been ignited and that their destiny had been determined!
As the love between them grew, it became more and more apparent that they could not imagine life without the other and in January 2015 whilst in Rosenberg, Germany, Aaron dropped to one knee and asked Emily to be his wife. Fast forward to 18 June 2016 and with overnight rain and the prospect of another onslaught of heavy rains and winds for their wedding day, a fortnight after a low pressure system had caused widespread flooding and damage, they were understandably, both a little anxious. A quick look at the radar and the call was made to proceed with the outdoor ceremony that they wanted so much. At 2:00 pm with the sun breaking through the cloud cover over Belgenny Farm, Emily walked down the aisle, exchanged vows and became Aaron’s wife. The happiness that they felt to be finally married was reflected in the continuous smiles on their faces as they walked back down the aisle (see photographs below).
Congratulations from their guests, some family photographs and Emily, Aaron and their wedding party proceeded to have photographs around the Belgenny Farm grounds. Meanwhile guests were entertained by live music from some of Emily and Aaron’s musically talented friends and a selection of lawn games. As the sun started to set and the air started to get cooler, guests made their way into The Granary before welcoming Emily, Aaron and their wedding party which great enthusiasm.
What a celebration it was, there was lots of FUN, emotional and humorous moments, laughter and some great memories created. Predominately though it was a celebration full of LOVE! It was amazing to be able to stand in the room and look at all the beaming faces and how happy everyone was for Emily and Aaron. I loved seeing the little whispers of “I love you” that they exchanged throughout the evening. It was a wedding incorporating all the things that they both loved – yes, even cricket, which is one of Aaron’s loves but which Emily hates!
All too soon, it was time to wrap up the celebration and farewell our gorgeous couple. With everyone on the dance floor, surrounding Emily and Aaron as they acted out the lyrics of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody it culminated with everybody dancing before Emily and Aaron departed through a sparkler guard of honour!
Emily and Aaron, thank you so much for the huge trust you placed in me and giving me the great honour to be a part of your wedding day as your Wedding MC Sydney and Wedding DJ Sydney. It was such a pleasure getting to know you both, brainstorming ideas and custom crafting an entertaining and engaging wedding with the both of you. When we first met, you indicated that you both had a vision for a beautiful, unique and fun wedding. I hope that I contributed to making your dream a reality. I have no doubt whatsoever that your marriage will produce a new improved ‘brand of craziness’ that is full of endless mutual respect, care, commitment and so much love. May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!
