LETISHIA + JUSTIN 

PHOTOGRAPHY   |  LOVEBOMB PHOTOS

Letishia and Justin’s love story began in the digital age, where swipes and matches set the stage for their unique connection on Bumble. Justin, breaking the norm, decided to make the first move by commenting on Letishia’s profile.

Their conversation flowed effortlessly with Justin risking being overlooked just to stand out. After a postponed coffee date, their first date over drinks lasted a delightful five hours and within six weeks they became inseparable.

The proposal, set against the backdrop of Hampton beach and a stunning sunset, took place on a Friday the 13th. Despite concerns about the date being a bad omen, Justin went ahead with his plans and it turned out to be a magical evening.

The engagement was a sweet surprise for Letishia who was completely unaware until the moment Justin revealed the ring at her favourite spot.

With the engagement came the exciting journey of planning their dream wedding. The couple chose the Bellarine Peninsula as their wedding destination, a place that held sentimental value for both of them. Basils Farm stole their hearts during the venue tour and it became the only venue they visited. Letishia, the main organiser, carefully selected local vendors, forming the dream team for their special day.

Their wedding with around 70 guests embodied a perfect blend of classic sophistication and vibrant colours. The styling exuded timeless elegance while touches of peach and blush brought in a playful and pretty palette. Letishia found her dream dress at Kyha – a gown that felt uniquely her own. Justin, inspired by James Bond, opted for a sleek two-tone ivory and black tuxedo, creating a classic and sophisticated look.

The couple aimed for an intimate ceremony with emotional moments and laughter, followed by a lively party atmosphere. Their dance floor, filled with joy, featured props to keep the celebration going. Letishia and Justin prioritised spending time together, sharing a sweetheart table during the reception and stealing moments to connect amidst the festivities.

Reflecting on their wedding day, Letishia cherishes the surprises and thoughtful gestures such as Justin surprising her with a bouquet of flowers. Justin fondly recalls shedding tears when he first saw Letishia walking down the aisle and how much he loved her dress.

For future couples embarking on the wedding planning journey, Letishia and Justin offer valuable advice. They encourage staying true to yourselves, avoiding decision overload from social media, trusting your vendors and being present to truly savour the moment.

In the end, Letishia and Justin’s wedding was a beautiful reflection of their love story
– unique, heartfelt and filled with moments that will be cherished forever.
