Erica Hugo

Married on Mar 22, 2014 in Gauteng

22 March 2014...the best day of our lives! I woke up the morning, bright and early counting down the minutes until I say I DO!! With a champagne breakfast at the venue, (Green Leaves, on the outskirts of Hartbeespoort dam) with my awesome bridesmaids, mother and my sister we started the day off. Then it was off to get ready for the big day. My bridesmaids were pampered and they looked stunning with their stone coloured dresses and off-pink ribbons! Time flew by and it was time to go! My bridesmaids entered the chapel first following my flower girls (all pretty in white). The song playing is called Turning Page by Sleeping at Last. Then it was my turn! The doors opened and with my dad by my side I walked down the aisle on the instrumental version of a '1000 years' locking eyes on my handsome husband-to-be Johan Hugo...I was the happiest person in the world!

Our reception venue was stunning, we decorated the table with white-washed little trees and each guest received a present-the men received homemade jalapeno sauce specially made by me and the ladies received homemade lip balm made by my mom! The seating plan consisted of lots of frames and I had white lily's under water in vases with candles drifting on the top on the tables to give a very romantic feel.

That evening, after the ceremony, we had canapé's and took lots and lots of photos. We had dinner, cut the delicious chocolate-mouse cake (which my sister made), and we opened the dance floor with Sum 41's, With Me. We partied the night away into the morning hours!

Its was such an amazing day to share with friends and family...I will not change anything!! By far..the best day ever!
