Rach & Hopper

How did you meet?

We met in the Air Force as we are both serving members

When did you know they were the one?

He showed me a love that I never thought was possible. He was a full time single dad to his 3 girls (who are now our girls) and they bring out the absolute best in him. He sees the positive in everyone and everything and taught me to see the world in a whole new light

What’s your three favorite attributes of your partner?

1. Amazing father 2. Heart of gold 3. A positive ball of fun and adventure

Who proposed and how?

I woke up with a cute love note by my bedside. Throughout the day he was sending me notes from our 3 daughters, 5 things they each love about me. The final note before I left work was a beautiful letter from me about why he loved me.

When I got home, my dad, Hopper and the 3 girls were ready to go for a picnic. They had baked me some cookies and organised snacks. We rode our bikes to our favourite park but my dad suffers from parkinsons and vertigo. On the way we looked back and my dad was on the ground, he couldnt make it to the park. Hopper knew how much it would mean to me for my dad to be there so we all turned around and went home. We ended up having the picnic in our front garden. Hopper jumped to one knee and I got really nervous. He asked me while I had a mouth full of cookies lol it was definitely one to remember.

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

I saw it on instagram. It was different than all the other dresses I had seen advertised and was something I could see myself wearing. It wasn’t a traditional looking gown and the lace is completely different. The sparkle and shine in the fabric is amazing. The Harlie was only a new release when I ordered it. I tried it on and it suited my body perfectly.
