Married on Apr 26, 2014

My husband & I met at our Church in 2006. After spending a lot of time together we became close friends. Over time our friendship grew into love. One day I told my husband that I had a major crush on him... He was very surprised by this news & decided to leave me hanging for 2weeks before finally deciding that he likes me too. In April 2008 we started our dating relationship. We were together for 6years before he popped the question. The night of our engagement, we went to Zevenwacht Wine Farm for dinner. Prior to dinner we spent time walking around the farm, watching the sunset. We bumped into our friends who were also there taking photos. To my surprise, we all stopped at this one spot were Nizaam got on one knee & asked me to marry him! I felt like a celebrity because our friends were taking photos of us the whole time while he was proposing :-)
A year later we got married in our Church & had our reception at Neethlingshof Wine Estate. Nizaam & I decided to honor all our closest friends by placing them in our bridal party. The day was absolutely spectacular!!! Everything flowed perfectly, as planned. All our guests loved our candy station, the speeches, the dancing, our photo booth & the food... We had such a blast! My husband looked stunning in his suit from India & I was really pleased with the way my dress turned out - after all I did design it ;-)
It was one day that we would definitely do it all over again!!!
