Wedding: 27/06/2015

Smug boyfriend in your selfie? He might be about to pop the question.

Queensland’s Carly McCormack, 24, and Jake Salomon, 26, headed down to Thredbo for a little getaway. Although Carly was suspicious of a proposal, it wasn’t until she noticed a certain smirk in their selfies that she knew something was up. “When we were out skiing one day, we stopped to share a picnic on the mountain for lunch. We were actually taking some selfies, and I noticed Jake was looking a bit smug,” explains the bride. “When I turned around to put my phone away he had crept around onto one knee.”

As Carly’s mother and grandmother had chosen their own engagement rings, she wanted to do the same. So Jake gave her the keyring off his GoPro until they headed home to choose a more permanent fixture. “I wore the keyring for the rest of the day,” smiles Carly. “We then ventured back to Toowoomba and picked the ring together, keeping it quiet from friends and family until we had mine.”

The pair exchanged vows at their black-tie wedding on June 27, 2015 in Toowoomba at Gabbinbar Homestead. Carly noted the highlights as walking down the aisle, leaving the cathedral as husband and wife and “feeling all the love and warmth in the room.”

They honeymooned in the Maldives.

Carly’s bridesmaids picked their own shoes, which they wore with their full-length pastel pink gowns. “I wanted them to be comfortable,” she says.

Underneath Carly’s stunning Casar Elegance wedding gown were custom shoes from Shoes of Prey. “Pink glitter and satin bows!” describes Carly. “They were inscripted, ‘Mrs Salomon – 27/6/15’ in the sole.”
