Kauri Bay Boomrock, Natalie & Mike, Anchor & Grace

Mike and I first met in July 2014 at the Union Post bar in Ellerslie for a mutual friend’s leaving party. We were introduced to one another that evening by a friend and we got chatting. Conversation came easy and we agreed to swap numbers to catch up again. I thought Mike seemed like a really nice guy. While Mike found me to be kind and that I seemed very unique. Mike arranged our first date. We went for dinner and drinks in Mission Bay.

Mike knew early on that I was ‘the one’. He says it was love at first sight! For me it was during a trip to Taupo. I got to know mike on more of a deeper level and he pulled out all the stops on this trip!

I love about mike that he always sees a positive in every situation. He creates balance and challenges me every day in my life. He’s a hard worker and just really wants the best for me. He’s kind caring and very generous. Mike loves me because I am the crazy to his calm. Mike is a very structured kinda guy and I am very not in the box person so he knows that he can be a bit spontaneous sometimes with me and not be judged. He loves that I work hard and provide stability for his baby girl.

When it comes to our love story, we just knew that we were right for each other and mike wanted to marry me … and I said yes … You just know when someone is right for you.

Our wedding day was the most amazing. Mike and I had no expectations, we kept it very simple, we had really only 4 major things; venue, photographer, singer and decorations – no extra bits. I guess the best part was everything ran so smoothly, it was just the perfect day!

The flowers were pretty special for me because I am a florist, so I was lucky enough to be able to do them. Looking back on all my photos and seeing all the florals was like a floral explosion. I have had so many people say “WOW the flowers!”. And I answer “what else would a florist have”.
