On Saturday afternoon the coolest couple got hitched. Okay I might be biased, on Saturday afternoon my big brother & Bec FINALLY got hitched & it was the perfect day. Not only was it the proudest kid sister moment, it was the most memorable day filled with LOVE, Brutalist Brisbane Bridals, DANCING & some important legal documents.
The day started off with Michael & Rebecca getting ready together at the beautiful Crystalbrook Vincent, a hotel with art decor, style & flair. Then it was off to the registry for the lovebirds to, ‘cohesion as long as they both survive, say they guarantee it, display the digit loops & then mouth push’ (Strange Planet). Basically get hitched to their soulmate & best friend. Typical of my brother & Bec, their vows were identical, heartfelt & perfect for each other, they then welcomed in their families after signing the papers & the celebrations began.
We then ventured around South Bank & the concrete jungle of Brisbane for their bridal portraits, a couple of blue steel looks & Brisbane’s skyline of high risers & art galleries. You may spot a sneaky moment of my fiancé Anthony Altadonna carrying absolutely everything necessary, what a hunk. As the sunset over the city we drove through Macca’s drive through for the necessary wedding day NUGS, and then a quick break before the greatest party of all time.
The newlyweds danced late into the night surrounded by the love of their nearest & dearest after eloping in the city. Delicious food, cocktails & mock-tails, Polaroids & a bangin’ playlist is how Michael & Rebecca saw their first night as husband and wife in.
I made a speech on the wedding night, something I do not do often, big brother I am so proud of you & will always be so happy to see the love and support that surrounds you. You found the perfect wife, the love you deserve & friendship that will last a lifetime of board games & adventures. Bec, you are the sister I always hoped for, little did I know just how wonderful you would be, I am so glad it’s you Michael brought home because you were one of us from day one, we adore you.
You two are perfect for each other, perfectly imperfect & that’s just the way it should be. Love is about finding the person who not only loves you with their whole heart but the person who is your best friend and makes everyday an adventure. Love is about finding someone that is one of the mad ones too, a person who you can make mistakes with and finding a person to grow up with, not just to grow old with. Congratulations to the coolest couple, I love you both dearly. And to everyone still reading, this day was an important one & the moments captured tell the love story of two wonderful people.
