Everlasting love is exactly that - everlasting. Across the room, at a party exactly three years ago, their story began.  Dean saw Courtney for her beautiful eyes and has always felt that she was so very different to anyone else he had ever met. For Courtney, when she met Dean and grew to know him, she knew he'd be the one to guide her through the rest of her life. 

The biggest thing for Courtney was that whenever she was with Dean, she felt secure, safe and protected. She is always happiest when she is with him and he pushes her to be adventurous more than she would have herself - including on their very first date where he took her rock climbing for the first time ever. Dean loves that he is able to push Courtney to have a ton of fun, including that one time when they went cross country horse back riding.

According to Courtney, once you get the chance to truly know Dean, he is incredible, sweet and amazing. And for Dean, Courtney has a wonderful array of ways to make him smile, and it's the laughter that they both have with each other that keeps them going. What's evident is their deep bond as parents to little Levi.  They both feel that his birth was their proudest moment - the most amazing thing to have ever happened to each other.  Courtney's ability as a mother and parent is awe-inspiring and Dean's fun-loving ability to be able to muck around with him at a moment's notice is just perfect.

On the day of their wedding, we learnt that it was not only their 3rd anniversary of meeting, but also the wedding day for their grandparents - such a special tradition and one that has been in the family for a number of generations now.

To begin with, we joined Courtney with her bridesmaids who were still getting ready for the big day - Courtney was all made up, looking radiant.  With the help of her bridesmaids, she was able to put on her dress before a few photos with her and the awesome car she had before we left for the ceremony.

After a quick ceremony at the National Arboretum, we took the bridal party around the Aboretum to take a few different location shots. Plenty of lovey-dovey moments for all to see. Everyone had a great time and laughed all afternoon, at the antics of half the bridal party, most notably, Jake and his bum.

We then drove all the way to Gundaroo to finish the rest of the celebrations with good old fashioned food and great company.
