Sep 30, 2016 in Western Cape

On the 30th September my every dream came true when I married the love of my life and best friend. From the day I met Chris I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him and he has made every day an adventure and the best day of my life. Our wedding was everything we hoped for and so much more! While the gents enjoyed whiskey and abundant jokes, the ladies had their hair and makeup done by the incredibly talented Candice Harker. I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day. Whilst getting ready I couldn't help but admire the beauty of our venue; Rickety Bridge Winery in Franschhoek; and we were blessed with the most beautiful, sunny and exquisite day. I didn't realize how fast time had flown until I saw guests starting to arrive and it was time to have my mom help me into my immaculate Demetrios dress from Lady Marmalaide. It was then time to walk down the isle; with my dad by my side I locked eyes with my hubby-to-be and surrounded by our family, on the lush green lawn and along the backdrop of the breathtaking Franschhoek mountains, we promised to love and honor each other forever. We were privileged to have our moments captured and frozen in time by, in my opinion, the best photographer in the industry, Tanja Rootman, and Jean-Luc from Feature Films was beyond amazing with our videography. By the time we made it into our reception, where we both saw our decor for the first time, we were left speechless. Our sister, Cheska Smith, from 93rd Degree outdid herself and captured everything and more of what we asked for. Our hopes and expectations were far surpassed with the elegant colours, beautiful flowers and romantic candle-lighting. Her talents are incredible and she certainly comes highly recommended! The celebrations continued onto the dance floor where Paul from SG Productions kept everyone dancing until the evening came to an end. Our wedding was beyond my wildest dreams and I couldn't have asked for a better person to hold my hand through life's adventures and to grow old with. It was a perfect celebration of our endless love for each other and by far the best and happiest day of my life!
