As you might expect, we meet with every couple who is interested in booking us just to make sure we all gel and to discuss all the exciting plans for the big day. Summer and Omar were the first couple we had ever dealt with that simply emailed us and said “We want to book you”. Somehow I didn’t really believe these people could possibly exist. It was such a leap of faith! But sure enough, the deposit came through and we marked their day down in our diaries.
It’s a truly amazing gesture when a couple trust in your abilities to do your thing. They’ve seen what you can do, they like it, the decision is made. Their confidence gives you confidence.
We finally met Summer and Omar the day before their wedding in a cruisy little buddhist cafe and we all. just. clicked.
The conversation flowed, and it felt like we’d always known each other. They told us all about their big day, and we started to get pretty darn excited. Red love hearts were the running theme of the day, their were guests flying in from all over the place, and when we saw their amazing invitations we knew just how much thought, time, and work had gone into their wedding.
Part way through the conversation I felt compelled to tell Omar how much he looked like my husband Justin. The similarity was absolutely crazy – same build, same manner, same clothes, same glasses. I fished out a picture of Justin to show him, and Omar just says “I know your husband”. I was like “What?!” he’s like “Yeah, we used to hang out all the time!”. I was like “NO!!! How come I never knew about you?!” it was the weirdest small world moment ever. Sure enough I went home to Justin that night and told him the story, and his response was as if I’d told him his favourite high school bud had just walked out of an underground mine, alive after missing for ten years – “DJ OMAR?!!!!!” he gasped. DJ Omar, indeed.
And now, it’s time for you to meet this glorious couple as well…
Love Katie & Sarah xo
