Amy & Jordan met in kindergarten way back in 1992…….little did they know that this meeting would be the start of a of a truly wonderful friendship which would eventually grow into a deep love and lead to marriage 21 years later. But this is exactly what happened and here we were at The Carrington in Katoomba on their wedding day where two beautiful individuals married their kindy sweetheart!
It was the perfect spring day with the sun shining brightly, not a cloud in the sky and there was even a surprise flash mob that happened moments before Amy was to walk down the aisle!!! (The flash mob was for some other unrelated purpose but we’ll just pretend that it was part of the planned pre-ceremony entertainment just for Amy & Jordan’s special day).
Guests were gathered in The Lounge with Jordan waiting with his Best Man, Nathan and Groomsman, Josh. The music started and bridesmaid Rebecca commenced the walk down the aisle followed closely by Maid of Honour, Danni. Amy, escorted by her Dad, Barry fought to keep her composure as they made their way to Jordan. A beautiful ceremony, officiated by Laurel-Anne Kenny-Levick followed and Amy and Jordan, after a seven year engagement, which began with Jordan’s plans for a romantic proposal on Amy’s parents’ farm near Dubbo. He had planned to ask Amy to marry him on trip away on the farm. Having already received Amy’s parent’s blessing, it was to have occurred the day after it actually did. Whilst they were at the farm, the excitement he felt at the end of a perfect day spent together and an incredible feeling that, that particular moment was just right time, Jordan ditched his plans and that evening, whilst in their pyjamas, Jordan dropped to one knee, told Amy how much he loved her, told her how much he had always loved her and that he wanted to be by her side forever – and so here they were finally married!
Following the ceremony, whilst Amy and Jordan and their wedding party went for photographs, guests enjoyed canapes and refreshment in the Lounge and Bar area of the hotel. A short time afterwards, we welcomed them all back for the start of the reception in the Grand Dining Room. It was such a lovely wedding full of much fun, laughter, tears, singing and of course, dancing. Surrounded by their dearest family and friends they celebrated surrounded by much love and those that only wanted the very best that life has to offer for them both
Amy and Jordan, thank you for entrusting me with the huge responsibility of being your Blue Mountains Wedding DJ & MC. I feel extremely privileged that I got the opportunity to meet you both and witness the start of what will be, an amazing marriage. I enjoyed every moment of your wedding and beyond that from that initial enquiry. I could feel the love you both have for each other and know that you will both continue to nourish this love and it will continue to flourish. You both have beautiful values and your happiness is assured. Amy, it was an absolute delight planning the wedding with you -you have such a bright and bubbly disposition that I could not help but feel on top of the world after each and every single one of our conversations. May love, laughter and music continue to fill your lives forever!!!
