Michaela and Mitchell’s Wedding

Real Wedding Stories: The wedding of Michaela and Mitchell

Tell us a bit about when and how you first met?

We met through a mutual friend who Michaela took to her high school formal. From that night we became good friends and later started dating during our first year of university. We have been together since 2007.

What was the proposal like?

It was the last day of the school term and I was driving back from Dalby as I had taken a year contract teaching in Toowoomba Catholic Education. As I was driving home, a friend of mine said you don’t think he would propose out at dinner tonight. I replied with I hope not because I dislike public attention and would want it to be memorable. As the night went on, Mitch and I went out to dinner… no proposal.

He then started driving to see my family, but took the longest way home. Little did I know that he had been texting Tim (mutual friend who had set us up) to ask if the spot for the proposal was ready. We drove past the park where we had our first date and I asked why there were witches hats there, but they were actually white lateens lit leading to the gazebo. It was decorated with flowers, candles, champagne and of course cookies and cream ice-cream (desert from first date).

As we sat down drinking champagne and eating cookies and cream ice-cream, Mitch bent down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Mitch and the boys (who were hiding until it was clear -Tim, Tom and Kieran) did a fantastic job executing a magical proposal not to be forgotten. They even managed to hide the ring on the ledge of the picnic table so that Mitch wouldn’t be caught out.

Why would you recommend Victoria Park to other people getting married?

I would recommend Victoria Park to other people getting married because our Wedding co-ordinater at Victoria Park was so helpful in keeping us informed and up-to-date with everything that needed to be done. I did not need to buy extra things as Victoria Park had their own styling package that suited both Mitch’s taste and myself. They also recommended suppliers to add extra touches to the day. Without the staff at Victoria Park, the day would not of been a huge success and so we thank you very much for everything that you did for us.
