How We
We met in junior high school, but didn't start seeing each other until five years after graduating high school. Our brothers got us together.
We were traveling in Mexico, the day of the proposal we went for breakfast then for a walk up the beach and went up to the rocks looking over Acapulco Bay where Andrew got down on his knee and asked me to marry him!
The Wedding
My wedding dress was perfect it was exactly what I wanted it to be, I purchased my dress from "Brides Desire" in Brisbane.
My mother in law made my earrings with the same crystals and pearls that were in my wedding dress they are stunning. I also was wearing my grandmothers engagement ring.
The Groom
 and Groomsmen's Attire
The guys were dressed by "Spurling Formal Wear" they looked very handsome.
 Dresses & Accessories:
The girls were wearing long satin red halter neck dresses from a boutique store in Brisbane they looked beautiful and their earrings were made by my mother in law also.
My flowers were from "Flowers with Style". The bridesmaids had cream and honeymoon roses and my bouquet was made up of white lillies and honeymoon roses.
 Theme & Colours:
Our theme was Love with Red and Latte as the colours.
 Venue & Details:
Sacred Heart Catholic Church at Clear Island Waters was our ceremony location and Father Peter Quin was our Priest and he was so fantastic. I loved our ceremony.
 Venue & Details:
The colonial golf course at Robina was where we celebrated our reception. It was a beautiful location and the food was great.
We hired a Stretch Lincoln Town Car from "Hughs Limousines". The car was beautiful.
We made wine charms for the wine glasses and also made a wedding album for each guest with our favourite songs on it.
We had a three tier wedding cake in the red and latte colour theme and icing flowers.
We had a String Quartet at our ceremony who sounded wonderful at the church and at the reception our DJ Stevie D did a fantastic job and had everyone dancing and having a good time.
Our honeymoon was in Thailand. We went to Koh Samui, Phuket and Bangkok had an excellent time very relaxing!
My bridesmaid Kate flying home from London for our wedding, our priest coming from Brisbane to do our service and also our brothers and cousins doing readings for us.
