The moment that stood out most was when I saw my husband's face as I was walking down the aisle. To see the emotion and love in his eyes was extremely special. Another highlight was seeing my father for the first time as we were just about to enter the church. Such a big moment, we were both filled with emotion!
We went to Thailand for our honeymoon. It is incredibly beautiful!
I went for a classic, romantic and timeless wedding look. My dress is from the Enzoani range. It's a mermaid dress that has a low lace illusion back with sweetheart neckline and lace bodice. I paired the dress with pearl and diamond drop earrings, diamond bracelets and silver shoes. I decided to do an updo with my hair in order to still show off the beautiful back of my dress. For my makeup we also went with a classic look, but still natural. We did smoky eyes and a natural lip color.
We got married at the Chez Charlene Wedding Venue in Lynwood.
I tried to go to gym at least 3-4 times a week, drank lots of water and went for a facial once a month.
The decor at the wedding consisted of a rainbow of different pastel colors paired with silver. We wanted to create a vintage wedding theme.
The groom was all dressed in black. He wore a black, slim fit suit, black shirt and skinny silky tie. The groomsmen wore black suits with white shirts and grey suspenders.
The bridesmaids wore long, dusty pink dresses with a pearl neckline. All of them were dressed by Gelique.
Trompie van der Berg captured our special day. He was absolutely incredible at making everyone feel at ease and comfortable wile taking each shot. Our wedding photos are everything and more that we could've hoped for. He is truly the best of the best!
Yes, the venue arranged a planner for us on the day. She coordinated everything superbly! Everyone knew exactly when to be where and what is going to happen next.
The bridal suite is very close to the church, so we were transported from there in a golf cart.
The amazing venue took care of all of the above!

The venue provided us with a sound engineer who took care of all the sound and lighting. We also had a DJ who kept us dancing all night!
In 2005, a new bridal collection emerged and quickly rose to compete with top brands by merging traditional and modern European styles into exquisitely hand crafted gowns.
