This wedding…you guys…this wedding was totally and utterly AMAZING. I’ve been sitting here at my computer for the last hour trying to figure out where to start but, of course, like all great stories, you know, like the ones you can’t put down until they are finished, I need to start at the beginning. So let’s start at the beginning. Andrew took Tegan on a surprise (yes, like totally unexpected surprise) trip to Borneo to propose. BORNEO! He wanted to propose on top of a mountain. With the sun rising as the backdrop. Seriously??? Like I mean seriously? How romantic is that??? (I’m not even going to tell you how Jason proposed to me…never. No way! Not after this story!!) Of course, as with all best laid plans, especially engagement plans (why, oh why is that?) they always go awry! It seemed rainy, cold weather, sore feet and confusion meant that they didn’t get to reach the summit, but thankfully, he proposed anyway! Phew! So the first step is a great couple who are ridiculously in love. Next step, we have amazing families and friends at the ready to usher this couple into married life. In fact, I have to say, this wedding had so many friends involved – be it with readings at the ceremony to speeches at the reception. Andrew and Tegan were so lucky to be surrounded by so much love on their wedding day you could almost see it, vibrating almost, or shining like a beacon of light on top of a hill. The next step to an amazing wedding is its location. Andrew and Tegan got married on Andrew’s family property out at Samford. With the most breathtaking views and gorgeous lush bushland it makes for some of the most unbelievable photographs. Not only is it gorgeous but of course it is meaningful. So many couples talk about getting married at home – a place where you have spent so much time and a place that means so much to you. Round the wedding out with the best wedding planner in white+white weddings to help you hone those finer details and, well, what can I say? Magic! I know you guys are going to be rushing with the comments about where Andrew and Tegan got such and such so I am going to list the details at the bottom. Andrew and Tegan – thanks so much for letting us be there on such a wonderful, magical, tender day. I am sort of, well, not really (because this-would-have-to-be my-longest-blog-post-ever) speechless. Enjoy!
