How did you meet?
We met when we were in high school at a good friends party. We were instantly attracted to each other which was further cemented when I (Kellie) kicked Scott’s behind at pool. We didn’t see each other again until about 5 years after, however during that time Scott would always come up in our girly high school conversation’s when we were talking about our “ideal guys”. We officially started “going out when I was 19, Scott was 21, and we brought our first house together two years after that.
Where and how did the proposal take place?
In normal Scott fashion we decided we should get engaged after an awfully unromantic conversation which went something like “well it is probably a good idea to get married soon” I then went out and chose the ring put it on hold and Scott went and picked it up. He did take me to the Langham hotel for the night, and out for a nice dinner to formally propose. We were engaged for almost two years before getting married.
Where was your wedding held?
Willow Creek Winery/Salix
What was the Theme or Style?
The venue was so beautiful by itself I didn’t want to tack it up by including lot’s of wedding paraphernalia so I just kept it super simple with a slight vintage theme.
What was your favourite moment of your wedding?
I am going to be super cliché and say walking down the isle watching Scott and all the boys waiting there for us and the look on Scott’s face, “pure terror!” Scott also surprised me with his grooms speech. I had written a simple one for him to do as speeches are not really Scotts thing. He ended up writing his own beautiful speech the night before the wedding. I was really surprised and it was a really proud moment for me.
Favourite Photo and why?
There are three gorgeous photos that Lucas of Lens to Life Photography took of Scott with our 8 week old son Jordan. I don’t think Scott knew they were being taken. He had not seen Jordan since the previous morning because he was with me so was just kissing him hello. The photos tell a million words they are really amazing!
Description of Bride’s Dress?
Ummm wedding dressy looking. I chose it because there are only so many wedding dresses you can look at before they all start looking the same and this one seemed to stand out from the rest, so the decision was made quickly and without to much pain.
The Honeymoon Destination and any details or stories you’d like to share?
We were booked to go to Thailand originally straight after our wedding. However when we found out about being pregnant with Jordan we had to post pone the trip so we will now be going with Jordan in August, which is kind of good as it draws out the whole wedding celebration/excitement a bit longer.
