Our Love Story
If Lou and Jake’s love story was a movie, the opening scene would be one of those meet-cute moments where the main characters are introduced through friends and nothing noteworthy really happens. But you just know the spark is there so you’re hooked! Fast forward ten years (it’s a movie, it goes quickly) and your main characters cross paths again and again until finally, Jake asks Lou out and now the real love story can begin!
When you’re love story is movie-like, why restrict yourselves to one wedding day when you can have two! For Lou and Jake, sharing their special moment with the ones they love meant hosting a wedding that would bring together family and friends in the most intimate way. Beginning with a small ceremony on Friday afternoon in Lou’s childhood garden, 36 guests watched Lou and Jake say ‘I do’ under the big golden elm tree. Surrounded by flowers arranged by the bride and her mother, Lou and Jake filled their special moment with tokens of love from those they hold dearest. Keeping the moment relaxed and the vibe laid-back, Lou and Jake enjoyed their first meal as husband and wife with their loved ones at Barwon Edge.
The following day it was time to celebrate! Overlooking the bay at No.42 at Rippleside, the couple shared their new status as Mr and Mrs with 140 guests. Dancing the night away to DJ Chook and Moluck and captured by the incredible Meg Read, Lou and Jake are so thankful for the special weekend they created to celebrate their love.
With final scene of the movie showing the couple getting their happily ever after, we’d say that’s a pretty beautiful way to close one chapter of this love story and we can’t wait to see the sequel come to life!
