Rachel + Samuel

How did you meet?

On a double date, my housemate was dating his housemate.

When did you know they were the one?

Sam is in the army and he will always try and put me first and ensure I am ok with everything that he does. He remembers the tiniest details and makes me feel incredibly special.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

– Kind
– Caring
– Competitive

Who proposed and how?

Sam proposed where we had one of our first dates on the wharf that overlooks all of Townsville and he captured it all on video.

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

Scottie was the first dress I tried on and I instantly fell in love with the detail and brought a tear to my eyes as well as my mum and sister who were on Zoom for the fitting.

What was the best moment for you at your wedding? 

Sitting in the back of the limo with my husband taking 5 minutes in moments after the ceremony with all of our bridal party having the best time at the front of the limo.

What were your favourite details? 

The way the colour scheme all tied together. We had a rustic theme and everything was perfect!

What advice would you tell other brides?

To take a moment with your husband in the midst of all the chaos.

Any standout vendors?
