Relaxed Backyard Wedding

Together since they were 16, Stevie and Jarred knew they were going to be together forever just two weeks into dating - proving that when you know, you just know. They married in Jarrod's Parent's backyard in July 2017.

Our ceremony was held in Point Chevalier at the in-laws house; we wanted a relaxed, chilled wedding to match our personalities. They have such a lovely home and garden, I was ecstatic when they offered us to have our wedding there.
— Stevie

Stevie says "A few weeks after our wedding, Jarred’s mum passed away unexpectedly. We are so happy she was there to witness us get married and celebrate along with her family. We got some really great photos of her which we will cherish for the rest of our lives."
