Rob + Kim. Married.

On their first date, Rob & Kim discovered something magical. They found out that they were both born on November 10th, exactly a decade apart. “And before the entrée had arrived, Kim had told Rob that she was going to marry him, and Rob had totally concurred, being quite clear that he loved her wholeheartedly and wanted to be with her and look after her for the rest of his life. So it was settled then.  They meshed together like well-synchronised cogs. Relaxed with their decision, and set about enjoying the process of getting to know each other better, secure in the mutual agreement that they were destined to be wed.” – an excerpt from their wedding ceremony introduction

My first date with Rob & Kim was at a cafe tucked away in one of the laneways of Melbourne. Coincidentally, they had their second date at that very same cafe. And it turns out my second date with them was at at Fairfield Boathouse for the biggest day of their lives. You can see more of their wedding on Ruffled, here.

“I like you and I know why.
I like you because you are a good person to like.
I like you because when I tell you something special, you know it’s special
And you remember it a long, long time.
You say, “Remember when you told me something special?”
And both of us remember

When I think something is important
you think it’s important too
We have good ideas
When I say something funny, you laugh
I think I’m funny and you think I’m funny too

I like you because you know where I’m ticklish
And you don’t tickle me there except just a little tiny bit sometimes
But if you do, then I know where to tickle you too

You know how to be silly
That’s why I like you
Boy are you ever silly
I never met anybody sillier than me till I met you
I like you because you know when it’s time to stop being silly

Sometimes we don’t say a word
We snurkle under fences
We spy secret places
f I am a goofus on the roofus hollering my head off
You are one too

And I like you because when I am feeling sad
You don’t always cheer me up right away
Sometimes it is better to be sad
You can’t stand the others being so googly and gaggly every single minute
You want to think about things
It takes time

I like you because if I am mad at you
Then you are mad at me too
It’s awful when the other person isn’t

I like you because if I think I am going to throw up
Then you are really sorry
You don’t just pretend you are busy looking at the birdies and all that
You say, maybe it was something you ate
You say, the same thing happened to me one time
and the same thing did

If you find two four-leaf clovers, you give me one
If I find four, I give you two
If we only find three, we keep on looking
Sometimes we have good luck, and sometimes we don’t

If I break my arm, and if you break your arm too
Then it’s fun to have a broken arm
I tell you about mine, you tell me about yours
We are both sorry
We write our names and draw pictures
We show everybody and they wish they had a broken arm too

 I like you because I don’t know why but
Everything that happens is nicer with you
I can’t remember when I didn’t like you

Even if it was the 999th of July
Even if it was August
Even if it was way down at the bottom of November
Even if it was no place particular in January
I would go on choosing you
And you would go on choosing me
Over and over again
That’s how it would happen every time

And I will go on choosing you
And you will go on choosing me
Over and over again
That’s how it will happen every time”

I Like You by Sandol Stoddard Warburg
