Understanding the importance of coffee I arrived at the girls house with a brew for each of them and I could feel a sense of calm from everyone. This was a house filled with love and trust and happiness. From the moment I met Rachel, I felt such a sense of welcoming, you could see she comes from a super close knit family and that she is such a gentle caring soul who would go to the ends of the Earth for those she loves.
Eric proposed to Rachel with a wooden ring he made himself, from a sugar gum that his dad had cut down a few years ago from the front yard of his house. The love Eric has for Rachel is clear to see in their wedding photos, and Rachel's happiness when she is around Eric is contagious!
Trekking over the dunes at Wreck Beach and watching Eric lift Rachel in a "Dirty Dancing Lift" moment was one of the absolute highlights of the day and a memory I won't forget in a hurry. There were cheers and high fives all around when they pulled it off. There was also a moment at sunset on the balcony of the Golf Club where the oldest married couple at the reception were giving the youngest married couple a few tips on marriage. Number one was never go to bed angry at each other. It was lovely to see the young couple lean on every word of great advice they were handed. The scenery at the Port Lincoln Golf Club was breathtaking.
Rachel almost died when I jokingly told her I lost her rings under a bush! (Sorry Rach, I have a sick sense of humour!) Rachel's sister Lauren made the most amazing g/f cake I've ever tasted with several layers of deliciousness. In every aspect of the wedding they tried to incorporate their family and friends. Further cementing my views of this super close knit environment and sense of community. It was so much fun hanging out with these young lovers for the day. I am so happy to have been able to share it with them and share it with you all.
