"Not Just Another Love Story"

"I'm not sure of much in my life but what I am sure of, is that I love you. The length and breadth of this love are inexplicable. The heights this love reaches are limitless, and the time placed upon it is infinite...” – An excerpt from my vows to him.

They say that: "the Journey of a Thousand Miles, begins with one single step"; and I can honestly say that when Lyle and I started this magical adventure together just over 8 and a half years ago, we did so in faith; entrusting every step, every moment of it to the One who had made it all possible right from the start. This theme was carried right through to our wedding day when I surprised Lyle with a pre-recorded prayer from myself to God, thanking Him for my incredible husband, for His presence throughout our relationship as a whole, and for His relentless pursuit of my heart. The recording of the prayer was broadcast over the loudspeaker at the very beginning of the ceremony, just before I made my way down the aisle. It was important to me to start our married life with hearts of gratefulness and thanksgiving in order to set the stage for a lifetime of exactly that with the man that I love.

Our wedding day was hosted by Tintswalo at Waterfall and was absolutely perfect in every aspect thereof. It was a glorious culmination of our relationship; a beautiful attestation to God's own love for us made manifest in the sheer emotion on the day experienced by all in attendance; and a tribute to love and all its adventure, magic, and mystery. It was a day for the books and no stone was left unturned in our quest for our “perfect” day. Thankfully, every person in attendance experienced the day exactly as we had prayed and imagined they would; and described the day exactly as we had hoped they would: Simplistic Effortless Elegance; Chilled Vibes, and Extremely Emotional.

I have found the one whom my soul loves, and I plan on spending the rest of my life making him happy; for in the creases of his beautiful eyes; in the laughter from his belly; in his enduring smile in moments of solace and reflection; in his reassuring embrace; in his beautiful heart and in his peace, I find my happiness, too.
