On March the 22nd 2014, my family and I met up in Adelaide to witness my gorgeous cousin Marisa wed her beau Rory. Set amongst the glorious trees and blue sky, we were warmed by the sun and by the love and kindness that these two showed towards one another. After the ceremony we sat amongst hay bales and wine barrels and feasted on Marisa's favourite food, local plump red strawberries.
We then made our way to the wedding reception venue run by an Italian family who built the venue for their daughter's wedding. Overlooking the ocean and catching the last of the day's sun; we ate freshly baked bread, gnocchi with local almonds and basil, pumpkin ravioli, and lamb on the spit. The food was AMAZING. Everything local and fresh prepared by one family, using recipes that their grandmother passed down.
We laughed at how they met; in the middle of a dance floor it would seem, both sober drivers for their friends and they danced the night away. Marisa was devastated that the boy didn't ask for her number but was absolutely delighted when she saw him being pushed towards outside the club by his mates. And that's how it all began, this love story of Rory & Marisa who are now affectionately called Rorisa. It ended with loads of dancing and laughter and of course love.
Hope you are well.
