Sarah and Mike – The Pines – 2 March 2013

From my first meeting with this couple, I knew that builder Mike and accountant Sarah were two of the most amazing people I’ve met; they suited each other to a tee and were able to laugh all the way through the wedding planning process not getting too stressed at the enormity of the day and the large guest list. They wanted the shortest ceremony I’ve ever been a part of – 15 minutes only! – which was fortuitous given the extreme heat of 160 guests in a wonderful setting at The Pines in Wellington overlooking Houghton Bay! (Poor photographers having to run all over the show trying to get their amazing photos in about a third of the time of a normal ceremony!!) Sarah looked absolutely stunning in her dress, their vows mentioned Xbox and dirty dishes pledges, the groomsmen turned up on time, and family and friends partied well into the night in this beautiful setting. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for these two and I wish them all the good blessings and wishes that life throws their way!
