Kelly Dippenaar (Els)

Kelly Dippenaar

Married on Jul 26, 2014

It all started 10 years ago when I met my high school sweetheart Jonothan Dippenaar. When I first saw him I didn't know that my own fairy tale was about to begin. "I thought love was only true in fairy tales, meant for someone else but not for me", but I was wrong. Because on the 24th of January 2014 on the MSC Opera my knight and shining Armour dropped to one knee in front of everyone and asked me the biggest question a girl could ever answer. And i said "yes....... finally!!". With both our families being so excited for this amazing family event we decided on July 2014, because Jonothan and I love the winter and we found our perfect venue which made us feel at home, Cranford Country Lodge.

And the planning began for our big day. I decided to do everything myself with regards to the decor and theme of the wedding, of course with the help of my wonderful mother Sonja Els,and bridesmaids. There is no better theme than a theme that can withstand the test of time, Vintage.

A wedding dress was bought, bridesmaids dresses made, groomsmen styled by the groom, a florist, photographer, videographer, DJ and venue.....and we were on our way to a great day.......

Guests were invited, family and friends close to our hearts, to witness the happiest day of our lives....From us getting ready, to an unforgettable and emotional ceremony, to fun and smiles through out the day,Jonathan and I have a life time of absolute bliss memories!

So relive our wedding through a photographers eyes, and look at the smiles, love and laughter of everyone......because at the end of the day, that's all that matters.....Family, Friends, Love and Laughter.

And as we danced our way into the night, I finally realized how Reality, was way better than my Dreams.....
