For these two gorgeous humans, it was social media that laid the foundation for their incredible six year journey together, allowing them to overcome a somewhat awkward beginning. As related by Gen, “I’m very thankful for social media, as we could have great conversations on there and he would even throw in the occasional compliment but face to face he barely made eye contact at first”. Fortunately for both of them, a series of picnics and long walks together alone would cement their young relationship into what it is today.
Their wedding day truly was a family affair, with Mitch’s mother Sharon (One Weddings) organising much of it, Mitch’s sister Sam (Willow Flowers by Design) supplying all the amazing florals, Mitch’s dad Rod running as the MC, and Mitch’s sisters all comprising Gen’s bridal party. When it was finally revealed that Gen’s parents had been married at Settlers about 25 years ago, it seemed everything had fallen together perfectly.
