Jasmine + Joel
How did you meet?
At the hockey fields and through mutual friends.
When did you know they were the one?
As soon as he introduced me to his family and grandmas. He is so generous, kind and helpful. Such a loyal person always helping his family out and putting himself last after family and friends.
What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?
He always makes me laugh, his kind eyes and loyalty to his friends and family.
Who proposed and how?
Joel proposed at a weekend away in Noosa. Before we went out to dinner, he got down on one knee and asked if I wanted to wear this ring to dinner. Through tears, I said finally! Oh, and also yes.
Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?
I saw the Archie on Instagram and thought, wow that is stunning! Before I tried on the Archie at the Gold Coast store, I tried on 4 other dresses. As soon as I tried the Archie, I knew it was the one as I instantly glowed. My mum and bridesmaids were also there for the moment and all yelled YES straight away.
What was the best moment for you at your wedding?
Walking down the aisle to see my handsome husband standing at the other end waiting for me and also looking at our guests who were all crying with happy tears for us. Another favourite moment was the bride reveal to my dad. He never cries and he did in this moment. Seeing him so emotional was so special.
What advice would you tell other brides?
Take some time by yourself once you have put your dress on and look at yourself in the mirror to soak it all in- it’ll make it feel more real! It’s a highly emotional day and goes so quickly, so enjoy this time by yourself. You’ve planned your dream wedding with your dream partner in crime and in your dream dress.
