every little detail from the five course dinner…
the sweet & pink candy bar…
the crowns & candelabras…
tree branches & pretty peacock feathers…
even their yummy traditional south african koeksister…
it was the bride…  and all her loves and dreams.

it was all so special.
the family… the friends… the fun… the love in the room… the fairytale…
none of us wanted it to end.

we wish them much happiness.
and though their story is just beginning… the first chapter was perfect!
