08 Jul Alex & Jordie
Groom: Alex Marriott
What you love and admire most about your wife Jordie? I love how much she makes me laugh and smile, even when I’m tired and grumpy. She would do anything for me, and always makes sure everyone else is ok before worrying about herself. She cares so much for our dogs and most of all our daughter she is just the most amazing person ever! And I am so glad I get to spend the rest of my life with her. We love to spend time with our daughter Ava, making her laugh and playing games with her.
How did you pop the Question? I made her walk up Mount Coolum, she is not much of a hiker, once we reached the top we sat down to have a rest and I got down on one knee. After complaining about the walk the entire way up I don’t think she was expecting it to happen. I proposed on the day we started dating 5 years ago.
Engagement Party? We had the engagement party at Jordie’s parents house. It was about 3 months after getting engaged. We had around 80 people attend. It was an awesome night!
What did you love most about wedding planning? I didn’t do much of the planning but whenever Jordie needed a hand or help making decisions I was always there.
What things stressed you out most? Thinking about standing up in front of everyone at the ceremony. I had to try not to think about all the people and focus on Jordie
Best advice to guys that are now planning their wedding?
