Ilze King

Married on Jan 30, 2016 in Western Cape

I opened my eyes and it was finally the day, the day I have been waiting for my entire life. I thanked the Lord for blessing me so abundantly with my soon-to-be husband and asked very sweetly for the weather to play along..

It was a stunning day in Cape Town, blue skies, a fresh breeze and white butterflies dancing in the garden as the ladies and I had our hair and make up done by the most skillful hands and not a hint of panic in the air. We made our way to the venue where the team at the Twelve Apostles were already hard at work making our venue look like a page out of a storybook. With the help of my friends I managed into my wedding gown, all the while counting the seconds until I can see Jeff's smile as I walk down the isle. Mom and Dad came into the suite and the joy in their tearful eyes nearly ruined my perfectly done make-up. The calmness, joy, excitement and love could be felt by all and the big moment arrived.

Dad took my hand and lead me through the fynbos garden, its time to marry the man of my dreams!!! All our friends and family stand and smile lovingly as I take each step and there, in front of me, is the man I will spend the rest of my life with. The look in his eyes will forever be engraved into my heart. The most beautiful and meaningful service was perfectly delivered by my Father-in-law, with words of wisdom and love gained through more than 40 years of marriage to his beautiful wife and a marvelous close relationship with the Lord, he blessed our union. Our vows, hand written from the heart, were spoken with promise and love, and then he could kiss his bride! A sand ceremony was held to symbolize the uniting of the families, never to be separated again..

The most wonderful reception followed with heart warming speeches, delicious food and extraordinary attention to each and every guests' needs. We danced, we laughed and we took in every moment of the best day of our lives, the day we started our forever..
