Meet the Storey's. We've been blessed to know these two for a while now and the more we've gotten to know them, the richer our lives have become. Matt came over to Canada a few years ago for an adventure. Our good friend Jon* knew Matt when he lived in Perth, so when Matt landed in Vancouver, he quickly joined our crew. While exploring the Great White North he was torn about a love that was forming with a girl back home. Enter Honni. These two have been friends for quite some time, they were always together, friends and family always thought they'd be a good match but they weren't quite ready to start dating. A little while later Matt knew he had to return down under. He knew that Honni was the one and he couldn't be away from her any longer. (Awwwww!)
*fun fact: Jon is the husband of our dear friend and graphic designer the incredible Heather Hastings! Check out their wedding film here!
This was a once in a lifetime trip that we'll never forget for two reasons:
Reason #1: The Wedding During the months leading up to the wedding, we heard murmurings from Matt and Honni of what to expect and each day it seemed to be getting more and more epic (I usually don't like using the word epic, but it truly is warranted in this case). From the breathetaking location of Yallingup (a few hours south of Perth), to the reception Tee Pee's, and even a magical forest, we knew this was going to be unforgettable. I don't want to spoil too much so please take a look at their film. You HAVE to watch it. I won't take no for an answer :)
Reason #2: The People We were (and still are) absolutely blown away by the amazing warmth and love that came from both the bride and grooms' close friends and family. We have never felt so welcomed into a group of people so quickly. As cliche as it sounds, the second we landed in Perth we felt like we'd known everyone for years. They welcomed us into their homes, moved out of their bedrooms for us and drove us around town to see all the sites and all their favorite places. If you follow me on instagram then you caught a glimpse into the amazing fun we had. We have a lot more we want to say about the trip and these people but we'll save that for our next blog post :)
We want to say thank you - thank you - thank you to Matt and Honni once again. You two were a dream to film and we truly love you both. Puh-lease come back to Canada soon!
