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 Hah-hah!
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"
