Our entire day was the most memorable... but if I had to break it down, I would definitely say the getting ready with my mom and the girls was a highlight. Ill never forget the excitement in the room leading up to the final count down. As I walked down the stairs to meet my dad to walk me down the aisle and seeing him with the joy on his face and tears in eyes as he was ready to give me away. I'll never forget how surreal it felt when I finally said I DO to Michael <3... The reception was a helluva night to remember. Sharing it with my closest family members and dearest friends, it was definitely a night to remember!!!
Yes we did go on honeymoon... something very different to your usual Island Vacay! We did honeymoon a month later and went to Hong Kong to celebrate the Chinese New Year for 1 week and did Bali a week later!!! It was an adventure and an experience I wouldn't want to have shared with anyone else but my new husband <3
My wedding look I was going for was, ELEGANCE!
My dress and hair & make up really did what I wanted.
My dress, garter and shoes were from Vonve Bridal Couture.
My make up was done by Danit Gordan.
My hair done by Lakin Dos Reis.
My jewelry I wore were all white pearls. I borrowed my moms pearl earings and my dad bought me this lovely pearl necklace <3
We got married at "Shepstone Gardens". What a magical venue. It truly took my breath away with the beautiful gardens and glass tent where we had our reception. No, our guests did not stay the night.
The decor was something else <3... a very good friend of my mine Kenndra Roberston from "Oh So Pretty" did our flower arrangements and stationary. She is brilliant. I couldn't stop crying when I saw the reception (I was a very emotional bride hehehe). We went with white, blush pinks and gold for our colors.
All furniture was supplied by the venue.
We did beautiful draping in the chapel and glass tent through "Draping Worx"
The groom, groomsmen and the dads looked absolutely handsome, they bought all their suits etc from "Eurosuit"
My lovely bridesmaids looked stunning in their dusty pink dresses and sparkly shoes <3 we got their dresses from "Forever New"
We got married through our parish at the venue, Father Fidgeon married us.
My photographer & dear friend <3 Morgan Brink from "Neon Photography"... I honestly have no words at how amazingly she captured our day!!! She makes it so easy for a person to be in front of the camera all the time. We had the best time with her!!!
I did most of the planning myself, with the help of my mom and bridesmaids <3
We didn't have any transport as we used the venue to get ready for the day.
Stan & Pete did our catering and did an outstanding job.
Cake was done by Cristina Abela from "The Cakery by Cristina"
All my stationary was done by "Oh So Pretty"
We had the best time at our reception and the party party in the evening. We hired a band called "Bad Wolf" who are absolutely phenomenal. The a jazzy/blues band and they had a DJ for us for after all the speeches and meals!!! Was a night to remember.
