Jami-Leigh Olivier (Parish)

Jami-Leigh Olivier

Married on Mar 26, 2016 in Eastern Cape

The night before our wedding I was given a box of letters, one from each member of my family, and one from each member of my new family too. My bridesmaids and I sat on the bed as I read them out loud and couldn't contain our tears at the beautiful words that were written. It was the build up to the most amazing time I could have ever dreamed of.

Our Wedding Day was an absolute dream come true. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. Our service providers were absolutely first class, some of the most wonderful people I have ever dealt with, they became family! Theano Zenios did the most amazing make up I could have asked for! We chose the exquisite La Colline Venue in PE, for its country feeling and stone chapel, we wanted our guests to feel comfortable yet not take away from the elegance of the day, and it was just perfect!
We made so many memories, and each time we look at our beautiful photographs from Wild Heart Photography, all the feelings of our day come rolling back. I can remember every little detail from our day. Walking down that aisle with my dad, seeing my handsome Groom waiting there for me, seeing our closest friends and family all there to celebrate such an important day with us. The message our Pastor left us with, I will always keep with me. Our décor and flowers were also in our natural and down to earth theme, our wooden table names combined with beautiful avalanche roses and greenery in wooden boxes on the tables. Lynley from Floral Creations and The Hire Warehouse has the most amazing gift of taking this little idea in your head and creating the most spectacular end result. Ginger Pops was THE only choice for our Macaron Tower. You cannot explain the sensation when you bite into one of her Macarons. It's like tingles start in your mouth and the macaron magic spreads throughout your body. The food was on a whole other level, we got so many compliments! Anneli from Petronela Catering and her team were fantastic.

Our day would not have been everything it was without everyone who made it possible, but besides all of the arrangements and parts to the day, the BEST part of everything was that my best friend was the one at the altar waiting for me, we got to go through one of the most magical experiences together and we still get to spend the rest of our lives making memories!
