‘Dave, can you whisper something into Joni’s ear that will make her blush?’ I ask Dave. Obligingly, he presses his face against the cheek of his beautiful (and shiny brand new!) wife Joni.
‘…aaaaany time you’re ready Dave. Sorry to put you on the spot D:!!!’
Finally, inspiration struck.
Dave whispered ‘did you have any pictures with Snootle this morning?’ at which point we all cracked up.
Snootle is one of their cats, and a bit of an instagram celebrity. We were SO excited to meet Snootle, but sadly she got stage fright and spent the morning under the bed. Chips, their other baby, was far more cooperative. And then there was CC, Joni’s family dog who happily marched the pair down the aisle to get hitched. Obviously, animals play a big part in their lives, but Joni has vowed not to add any more fur babies to the fam (for a few years).
Joni and Dave did this wedding thing entirely their own way, with plenty of their own style and loaaaads of colour along the way. They had their first look, walked each other down the aisle and said their vows amongst the trees in Minnippi Parklands, we went for a bit of a cruise around the park for piccies and chill time and then headed off to Factory 51. There was dinner, drinks and dancing under twinkling lights, with Back to the Future and Dancing in the Rain on the big screen. Like the retro movies they love so much, Joni and Dave were happiest slow dancing together at their reception, chatting and laughing, as if they were the only two in the entire universe.
These guys suuuure know how to Wednesday. Happy 3 year anniversary/Wedding day you two!
