Planning my wedding from a hospital bed was not ideal but having the best bridal party and mom any girl could dream of made it real easy.
Our initial planned day was 10/10/15 which would of also been daddy's 65th birthday but due to unforseen hospital stays we had do postpone our day.I was one stressed bride as dates available were far and few for a warm summer wedding.
Just when I thought the year 2020 would be the only time open to us my beautiful venue Eensgezind farm ,on kliphewel rd Durbanville, called with a cancelation.
Excited to say the least. What stood out more was the date it would fall on, 12/02/2016...this was going to be one heck of a party weekend as 13/02 is my birthday and 14/02 of course valentines day.
Is my hubby not lucky to have all these important dates to remember all at once..wink wink.
Now with our new date it was all on me to get out of my wheelchair and have my daddy walk me down that isle.
74 surgeries were not going to be the reason for keeping me down at all. Standing at the end of that isle as I looked up was my tall blue eye handsome hubby to be. The loving gaze made me weak at the knees but I knew he is the purpose and reason i live and was going to take this one step at a time towards him.
Holding hands as we were pronounced husband and wife of course let tears of joy roll down my eyes as my life as a wife could now begin and I couldn't be happier it was with the man who has been my rock through the toughest time in my life as I face disability. With him now there are no limits and only abilities to be the woman he deserves.
Our day was celebrated with family and friends who have watched our love blossom and I'm truly greatful to have had them witness us become one.
Dancing the night away and then celebrating my birthday at midnight was just another highlight in a truly fairytale weekend non the less wedding day. My beautiful venue and the team who run it with passion and love lived up to only the positives of devine food, great service and a set up any bride would of melted over.
12/02/2016 was truly the day of my dreams.
