Kim & Jesse
How did you meet Jesse?
We met at the yoga studio I was teaching at.
What is the most amazing thing about your man?
It's truly hard to pick one favourite thing about him, to me, he just feels like home. There was a knowing the first time we kissed that he was my forever.
How long have you been together and how did he propose?
5.5 years. He proposed by taking us both out paddle boarding to a spot that was very sacred and monumental for us. The swell was very choppy and it was windy as hell, I suggested we go somewhere else a little calmer but he was determined to sit in that part of the ocean that meant something special to us. It was beautiful but also hilarious as we tried hard not to get pumped by waves.
Describe your wedding in one word:
What is your favourite memory from your wedding?
The vows, listening to his surprise vows and wishes for us was so special.
Where was your wedding located? What made you choose this location?
Ingenia Holidays Byron Bay. We wanted our wedding to be in nature, with a strong connection to her beauty. We also knew we wanted our celebration to last beyond one day. This spot was perfect because it allowed all our guests to share a mini holiday with us, hanging by the pool, afternoon drinks and surf sessions with a special spot out the back almost in the national park where we could party.
Any advice for other brides-to-be?
Don't falter on your dream vision, don't let anyone tell you how it should be done. It's you and your husband's day, no one else's.
Who created your gorgeous gown?
You're a wife now! How does it feel to finally tie the knot?
Haha well have two kids so we've felt informally married for years but there is a deeper layer to our relationship now, and it's beautiful.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
How was your experience as a Forever Soles bride?
I adored it all! I felt so beautiful, and celebrated and honoured and me!
