Today I thought it was a great place to start with where Sarah and Sam met, cause you all know I love these stories… so…
“Years ago I had connected with Sam’s best friend (best man) Nick as they made music and were looking for female singers to record with. Nothing came of it at that stage but a couple of years later I had a new job and happened to bump into Nick on my work lunch break. He said since we had spoken last he and his business partner had built a proper studio and that I should come and meet him and work on some music with them. That business partner ended up being Sam, and the studio they built was at Sam’s house.
We would catch up for studio sessions every Friday night, and we all just had so much fun hanging out. Sam always gave me butterflies! With Nick having to go home because he had work the next day, Sam and I would always end up sitting in the studio hanging out and talking about life, usually until the early hours of the morning. I really enjoyed spending time with him and eventually I just started feeling like I always wanted to talk to him and looked forward to hearing from him… I couldn’t wait for Fridays/studio sessions to roll around!” Sarah said.
Now onto the wedding… Who could believe that for a February wedding we would have rain, and not only rain but literally 4 seasons in the one day. We took advantage of all the weather conditions and used them to our advantage! Did I mention it was also the start of Fringe, so lots of road closures… and Guns and Roses were playing at Adelaide oval, but we made it to get wedding photos on Adelaide’s North Tce!
Adelaide city centre was extremely busy, so this caused a few issues, but to see Sarah and her Dad overwhelmed with love and emotion during the father and daughter first look, Sarah and Sams love for each other during the ceremony and so much fun and laughter during the bridal party photos and reception made the day just magical. So many special moments to remember and cherish.
Sarah and Sam your love for each other and connection and love with your families is so beautiful. Wishing you both an awesome honeymoon and a long healthy and happy life together.
