"We both just feel so blessed to have each other and we truly cherish the time we get to spend together."

Emily & Micah went to the same school from pre-school to year 12 but were two grades apart. "We played in band together but had never really had a proper conversation - or from what we can remember anyway!!"

Several years passed when Micah sent Emily a message saying something along the lines of “I know this is completely out of the blue but I thought it’d be nice to get to know you. I remember we were in band together and you used to play the trumpet” how have you been etc etc." The funniest part was, I actually didn’t play the trumpet, that was my sister, but I felt to bad to say anything at the time, so that didn’t come out until we had been dating for a little while.

We caught up for breakfast, and coffee, and more breakfast and more coffee.. and then here we are!

Together for just over a year before becoming engaged to marry, Emily tells about the proposal "It couldn’t have been more perfect! Micah had set up a picnic with festoon lights, candles, rugs, cushions, home-baked brownies and a fire pit in the shape of a love heart (bless). It was right before I was due to go overseas for a month so I honestly didn’t see it coming. There was no one else there, in fact we were on one of his family’s properties so there wasn’t even a street light in sight.

He got down on one knee, tried to say some nice things but mainly just cried and then somehow got out the words “will you marry me?”. (As he opened the ring box upside down because he was so nervous - the cutest part ever)

He cried, I cried and it was just a perfect smooshy mess.

We got married on a different farm between Warwick and Brisbane “Yellunga”. It’s one of the prettiest places and as Micah had grown up making, digging and building things outside often on these farms it made sense to marry there. Being a place he had grown up and marrying someone who could make a lot of the DIY happen was definitely a plus!

The farm for us as well is just a place we both love. When we first started dating we would often go out for a day trip and just pack a picnic, so I guess it was a special place for us in that sense. Besides, once we started thinking of all the things we could do and began imagining what it could look like there was no turning back.

As soon as we decided to go with the farm I knew I wanted a clear marquee with lots of greenery - it just suited the whole farm/green/native vibe!

For me, the highlight was when I first approached the end of the aisle and saw Micah at the other end looking back at me with the biggest smile (and reddest eyes) you’ve ever seen. My heart just melted and I don’t think I have ever felt happier.

I really loved what we all wore - my dress, the girls dresses and the boys suits. And the flowers - The bouquets were amazing and when I saw the arbour and marquee when I arrived I was so happy with how it all looked.

➳ What does marriage mean to you? For us marriage is a commitment we have made to each other, the best and most exciting one yet. We both just feel so blessed to have each other and we truly cherish the time we get to spend together.

For me personally, I think the greatest demonstration of love is the way God showed his love for us (check out John 3:16 for more) Micah and I both firmly believe this and having Christ’s love as an example helps us to love each other better.

➳ What advice would you offer to other couples planning a Wedding? Be organised and lock things in early. Once you’ve paid the deposit you can come back to it later but it means you know it’s locked in and you can just keep planning other things. Most of all though, have fun!

➳ Any stand out vendors for the day? Photographer – Heart and Colour
They had photographed a friend’s wedding a couple of years earlier and since that wedding I had never seen wedding photos I liked more. They were so lovely and just made the day that much better! Not to mention the amazing photos we got at the end of it all!

Videographer - Sam Fregonese. AMAZING. Honestly I am still blown away with the quality of the video he produced. I am so glad we decided to get a video and decided to go with Sam. He was super lovely and easy to have on the day and WOWEE the video is just one of my favourite things!!

Make up - Kait from @theunpainted did all our makeup and wow what an amazing job she did! I don’t usually wear much make up so I was pretty specific about the look I wanted - I still wanted to look like me! She just did it so well! Could not recommend her highly enough. Not to mention she is super lovely and the perfect kind of person you want hanging around for 5 hours on the morning of your wedding!
