Married on Nov 15, 2014

I got more than I could ever have asked for... Man of my dreams, dream wedding, awesome family and friends, perfect day....

Our wedding was at Breede Escape in Bonnievale. I grew up on a farm in Bonnievale and love the outdoors, as do my husband. So we wanted to have a wedding outside. When I first walked through those beautiful trees at Breede Escape I just knew that where I want to get married. The ceremony was outside overlooking a beautiful dam and the celebrations took place in hall just above the dam, overlooking the beautiful mountains.

Our wedding was blessed with lots of rain ( I think we are doubled blessed, because we also got snow on the mountains... And that is weird for middle November in Bonnievale) The Day before the wedding my Dad had to shop aroud for a tent, because the ceremony was outside. Luckily there was still 2 tents left in the Bonnievale region. My mom did ALL the decor. She was so good. Everything looked like a picture out of the Ideas magazine. And best of all, it was all her ideas, she knew me so well, it was picture perfect. So blessed!

The best moment of the wedding was just after the pastor announced us husband and wife. It rained throughout the whole ceremony, and just after he said that, it stopped raining and the most perfect and beautiful rainbow made its appearance. It was as if God just wanted to tell us that He bless our marriage and our lives together. We felt so loved and blessed at that moment.

We celebrated the rest of evening with all our family and friends. I had the best bridesmaids you could ever ask for and they know me so well. They made the day so much more perfect.We danced the whole night. I did not sit out one song. I am the happiest girl alive
and is blessed with the best husband ever. Blessed with the best...husband, parents, brother and friends... Best day EVER!
