The highlights and most memorable moments was all the love and emotion everyone experienced on that day. All our guests said that they have never been to such a beautiful wedding, nor been to a wedding where so many people have cried.
The most amazing part was seeing all our loved ones, but seeing my emotional soon-to-be husband waiting at the end of the aisle.
During the ceremony, there was some thunder and it immediately reminded us of God's voice, and this is a day we made our vows in the presence of God.
After the ceremony, as I looked back at the spot where we got married, there was a rainbow in the sky above it. It reminded us of when God said, that, the rainbow in the sky would be a reminder to the promise He made after the floods. Now, the rainbow has two significant meanings to us, the promise God made, and, the promise we made to each other in the presence of God.
We went on Honeymoon. It was a complete surprise, but, absolutely amazing and memorable. We drove down, spent a night in a lodge next to the Orange river in the Gariep area. Thereafter we drove down to this beautiful lodge situated in Wilderness, right in the Outeniqua mountains. The views were breathtaking. Then we went on some adventures through the Tsitsikamma, where we spent a couple of nights. After that, we stayed in a beach house at Brenton on Sea at Knysna. It was absolutely amazing, more than anything we could ever dream of.
At the end of the day, the part that mattered the most is spending time with my husband.
