The family is one of nature’s masterpieces. ~George Santayana, The Life of Reason
Yesterday, on a steamy Queensland summer’s day, Team Kerle united with Team Hawkins to celebrate the wedding of Sophie & Rodney. It will live long in our memories for many reasons. But mostly, as usual, for the people present, the lives they have lived & the love they all have for each other. The next Bledisloe Cup match can only be more interesting………….
The magnificent Sheraton Mirage, at Main Beach on the Gold Coast was where the story of the day began.

As well as having two sets of grandparents present, Sophie’s Uncle John presided over the service.

The most beautiful hug from a father to his son.
The Kerle property is a jaw dropping place to visit & made a perfect reception venue while holding many, many memories for Sophie.

One more for the beautiful Kerle sisters.
This was our last wedding for 2009 & in our wildest dreams we couldn’t have asked for more. More intimacy, more laughter, more history, more beauty would not have possible. We are truly blessed to have met you all & shared this day with you. We will always hold it dear in our hearts. Thank you for this window into your family & your lives. Love Ben & Jodie xo
