Discover what marriage means to them and be inspired by their proposal, below:

Tell us about your proposal. Damian, unbeknown to me, spent months planning, drawing and building scale models (we met in design school) for the most extravagant proposal I could ever begin to imagine. I was taken to an unknown location and given a lantern, was told to walk down a path to discover a candle filled teepee, between the trees, that he had built with his own hands. He wrote, performed and sang an original song on loop pedal, got down on one knee and asked me to be his bride.

What do you love most about your partner? The way he loves our kids that haven’t even been conceived yet. He balances me and compliments me in the areas that I lack. I also love the way his mind works. Although I can’t always keep up or follow, he comes up with some fascinating thoughts and theories. Most days, he teaches me things I didn’t even know about myself.

What was your favourite part of the wedding day? Seeing Damian waiting for me at the end of the aisle. Having our most loved friends and family from different states and countries come together in the same location, at the same time, to celebrate our love for each other.

What is marriage to you? A never ending journey of growth and discovery of self and each other. An opportunity to become truly selfless, by positioning your partner in a way that allows them to blossom and become the best version of themselves.
