It all started with 4 simple words that every girl loves to hear… “I like your shoes.” Little did Logan know that complimenting Anna on her fashion was a sure fire way to catch her eye! Fast forward 8 years and this beautiful couple are in the process of planning their wedding.
Anna and I met through our partners in crime. Logan and Carl have been buds for years. These two are born and bred Hamilton surfers who love beers, banter and BBQs… oh and they are both really tall! It’s fair to say that after living together, holidaying together, and sharing so many things in common (in particular the colour black, and a love for Taupo) these two are a significant part of our lives and will be forever. Which is why having the chance to guide them through their “I dos” in Jan 17 is going to be such a magical moment for me as a celebrant, and friend.
These two are totally crush worthy and there are so many reasons why. Let’s call this the ABCs of Anna and Logan.
Ask Anna where her ‘happy place’ is and I can guarantee you her answer will be, “Anywhere- as long as it’s an adventure.” These two travel bugs love the fast-paced life that they both live and look at every day as a new adventure-how amazing is that?! They have travelled the world together and have ventured over many miles to check out some remarkable sights. Flip a coin or make a call at the drop of a hat- these two thrive on that. They support each other in their individual journeys but balance that up by going away together for a weekend of QT.
When I think of Bali I think of Anna and Logan! This is a destination that lives in the centre of their hearts. Bring on April next year where they will be getting amongst the Bintang, barrels, and the Balinese beauty spas while on their honeymoon for 3 whole weeks- argh lucky sods!
B= A Black and White Backdoor.
I’m not going to give away too much about Anna and Logan’s wedding plans, but I can tell you this: Stylish does not even come close to describing their ideas. Both Anna and Logan are inspired by fashion. In fact, their love story began at Backdoor Surf Shop. They went bowling together and Logan was dressed ever so handsomely as… wait for it…. Batman! And we already know Anna obviously had very cool shoes on!
Both A and L style it up with black and white accents so it is only normal that this monochrome colour scheme may very well be inspo for their big day. It’ll be fresh, funky and I can guarantee that Anna and Logan will be written all over it.
C= Café Kinloch
A lot of inspiration for their day has been found in the eateries and cafes that they have visited during their adventures around the world. I can only imagine that their day will be centred on great food, great chat, and the greatest company. It’s going to be a delicious evening under the stars in Kinloch- a place near and dear to them both.
When Carl and I were travelling around Europe last year one of our favourite moments was getting a call from Anna and Logan sharing the exciting news of their engagement. Logan really had thought this one through! He had Anna following cryptic clues around their home until she read the final note: “You are on the home stretch and the end is near. I hope you’ve had fun my rhyming you can bear! What I ask you now is to quickly and swiftly dart, back out the door in which this treasure hunt did start!” And there he was down on one knee….
Who knew that the Batman she met in the bowling alley that night would turn out to be her best friend, her adventure buddy, her super hero and of course- her future husband?
And so the adventure begins…
I seriously can’t wait!
