Magical Moments


It was windy but still Wow.

The mos memorable moment of the whole beautiful day of our life was the moment when I started walking down the aisle, and suddenly being able to see Jaco, and his face expression rounding it of with tears, As my brother in law handed me over to him Jaco kissed me.

As the ceremony continued I started to feel less stressed. We ended of with a kiss after handing over the rings. When we signed the register we couldn’t believe that we stressed so much for only a few minutes in the wedding.

The flowers decor and everything was just tooo perfect to even find any mistakes. It was exactly as what Jaco and I wanted for our lovely fairytale day.

I had been told once that it was good luck for the marriage if it rained on the wedding day, and it did rain on our Wedding day after all the photos was taken and all the guest entered the Venue.

Jaco was sick so he missed a few things like the bouquet toss. But still he made it through to make his speech although I couldn’t hear a thing hehehe.
We had a laugh when we got to the garter toss.

This was the most special and beautiful day. And each day I say thank you to my husband for making my little child dreams come true... our own white wedding.
