Since JD and I chose to not do a first look I was really anticipating the church doors opening and seeing him for the first time. I just remember waiting behind those doors and taking a few deep breaths right before they opened as I prepared to marry my (almost) husband. My heart was beating so fast in that moment as I waited for “go” time!
As soon as the doors opened my heart burst with love. I locked eyes with JD and immediately teared up. JD probably won’t admit it, but he definitely cried (and still had tears in his eyes when I got to the end of the aisle!) Nothing could have prepared me for the emotion and love I felt as I walked down the aisle to him. It was the absolute best feeling. When we got our photos back and I saw the one of him seeing me for the first time I couldn’t help but cry….

DuVon is a beautiful family-run, fruit and wine farm, situated near Robertson in the De Goree district that forms part of the Valley of Wine and Roses.
The name DuVon symbolizes the merging of the two sole co-owners: Armand du Toit and his uncle, Alex von Klopmann, together they lovingly restored the old wine cellar (dating back to 1940) into a boutique winery and a wedding venue that offers all new bridal couples the perfect opportunity to customize their wedding to personal taste, preference and needs.
The farm offers exquisite wines that may be enjoyed while sitting beside the picture-perfect swimming pool of the self-catering units that forms part of the old farmhouse, with a view that stretches over 100 hectares of vineyards and beyond...
