Chookie and Alana remember holding hands a few times during year nine, before deciding after a couple of weeks they’d be better off as friends.
After leaving high school, the pair lost touch as their lives went separate ways. Five years later they bumped into each other on a night out in Melbourne and started thinking maybe they weren’t better off as friends – Alana couldn’t get his blue eyes out of her head.
The couple got engaged after three years, with Chookie popping the question on the beach in Maui, Hawaii. They were engaged for five months before marrying in a beautiful wedding with lots of mint green touches.
