We love the spectacular backdrops and gorgeous blue details (those shoes!) at the wedding of Terese O'Reilly and Lucas McCallum.
Lucas bought the ring when he returned from a tour of service in Afghanistan. He held on to it for three years!! When he did finally decide the time was right, I came home after a horrible day at work to find a huge bunch of gorgeous flowers, and the open ring box on the kitchen bench. He’d made a sign that simply said, ‘Terese, will you marry me?’. I was expecting a proposal for so long, but he still managed to surprise me!
We had our hair and makeup done early enough to come home, and sit down for a proper lunch with my family before getting dressed. I would hate to be hungry standing there saying my vows! Also, we did a ring warming ceremony, where our rings were passed through all our guests for them to bless with their wishes for our future. Everyone commented that this made them feel very included.
