The love story of Jenna & Aaron began whilst they were both deployed at sea in the Royal Australian Navy. As circumstances would have it, they had been on the same ship for around five months and had not run into each other. It was not until they were in Tokyo, that they met in a bar and felt very comfortable with each other that the spark was ignited, they had their first kiss and this relationship commenced.
A week later, they went on their first date – bowling, movie (which Jenna fell asleep in) and dinner. Since they were on the same ship, they met for dinner and a coffee regularly and the relationship commenced to blossom. By the time they got back to Sydney 4 months later, they realised that they were in love. It was not until Jenna was posted to Perth around four months later that they both knew that they could not live without each other.
At the end of March 2014, Aaron placed a ring inside a Kinder Surprise, knowing that Jenna always craved chocolate after dinner, organised Thai food for dinner and when Jenna returned from her afternoon Gym ritual, he knew she would ask for chocolate, which she did. This plan almost backfired on Aaron as Jenna could not feel/hear anything in the Kinder Surprise and thought it was empty, but was surprised by an engagement ring. A shocked and speechless Jenna eventually said yes and here we were overlooking beautiful Sydney Harbour at Pier One as Jenna and Aaron became husband and wife.
It was an absolutely perfect day for this lovely couple. A beautiful ceremony, officiated by Angela Blattman before Jenna and Aaron signed the official documents and were pronounced united in marriage. Congratulations all round, a group photograph and Jenna, Aaron and their wedding party were off for photographs by MM Photos, around the city.
Meanwhile, guests were treated to refreshments and canapés. A little while later we welcomed our newlyweds and their wedding party. A delicious entrée, speeches by the two dads, Mark and Brett, the father daughter dance, main meal, a few words from the best man, Adam and Aaron, a couple of fun activities, dessert and it was time for the first dance. This was a beautiful moment which I am certain that Jenna & Aaron will treasure forever. It was then party time!! and as you can see from the photographs and video below, they certainly did party!
All too soon it was time for the Mother Son dance, the farewell circle, a farewell dance and it was time for Jenna and Aaron to start the rest of their happy ever after as husband and wife.
It was an amazing wedding with an awesome couple who truly adore each other. It was a wedding which was filled with many personal touches and whilst the circumstances which led them to me when probably not the most ideal for them, I am so pleased that the universe decided that our paths should cross. It was not only a pleasure, honour and privilege to have been asked to take part in this lifetime event, but a whole heap of fun. Jenna and Aaron, thank you for selecting me as your wedding MC Sydney and also as your wedding DJ Sydney. May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!
