One of my favourite quotes about love is by Elizabeth Gilbert - To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow—this is a human offering that can border on miraculous. -Elizabeth Gilbert (from Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage)
"This is something I have found with Dean, with him I can be my absolute self without shame or being reprimanded. I am loved unconditionally. This is what makes us work, I love him for him and he loves me for me. " Krystal
Dean and I met whilst swiping right on a popular dating app. There was an instant connection, wifi puns aside, and without being too cliche, it truely was as if we had known each other for years.
We bonded over our love for fitness and zest for travel. "We truely are best friends, I have the most fun when I am with him, he makes me laugh until my belly aches. " Krystal
"They say if you can travel with someone then you should marry them, and in this case i hope it's true! We arnt without our faults, we do argue like all couples do but we always make up and move on."
"Krystal is like no other person I have ever met before, when ever she enters the room it's like the whole room lights up with joy. She can make anyone happy, even when they are down. She shows me so much love, more love then anyone could ever imagine. She has the most amazing big beautiful blue eyes that I have ever seen, in which I could get lost for days. She is the most beautiful lady." Dean ( no I didn't pay him to say this lol)
"Dean proposed on the 25th October 2015, on the top of Mount Jim Crow in the exact spot he first told me he loved me - this was also in my home town of yeppoon which also held sentiment. it was in the middle of the day, I complained the entire way, dripping in sweat and covered in dirt. I wasn't suspecting it in the slightest. He proposed with a specially made "penguin pebble" (penguins give a perfect pebble to the mate they choose for life) then followed with a self designed rose gold diamond ring. We then left for Fiji the next week for a romantic get away and enjoy some time to soak it all in. " Krystal
Dean is a true romantic and gentleman, on our first date he went and chose out and purchased me a dress to wear out to dinner as I "didn't have anything to wear" he surprised me with it and flowers before we went out. I have kept all the rose petals from anniversary flowers, Valentine's Day flowers etc. that will be used in the ceremony as "confetti". He often leaves love notes around the house for me to find. I truely have hit the jackpot. We are so lucky to have found each other at such a young age.
We are planning our wedding for the 2nd September 2017, "September is my fathers birthday month, and as we lost him last year, it means a lot to me and makes it feel as if he is a part of it all.
Our ceremony will be held at queens park followed by a ceremony at Paxtons warehouse. We cannot wait to celebrate our love with our closest friends and family" K.
