We Got Married!

We Got Married! -1

I have been babbling on and on about our wedding and We Got Married! I am the happiest I have ever been at this moment I would have never have guessed that I would one day marry the man of my dreams.

As a little girl, I have always dreamt of the fairytale wedding, which I am sure most little girls do.

I have been extremely lucky to have met my Prince Charming. Justin and I have been dating for almost 5 years and when he proposed last year I knew it was coming. I just had no idea when he would… We have spoken about getting married before then, but never would I have imagined of it actually happening to me.

The Venue

We had our wedding at Lagoon Beach Hotel with 35 of our closest friends and family. The main reason why we decided to choose the Lagoon Beach Hotel as our wedding destination was the incredible view! It’s right by the Milnerton beach and it has the most amazing view of Table Mountain.

Justin and I were also lucky that the hotel has their own wedding planner. Spunky Jessi planned everything and she knew exactly what we wanted. I always wanted a wedding that was no fuss or frills I always wanted just a beautiful day a celebration if you will with the people we hold close to our hearts.

The day went off to a rough start, we had to go home several times because we kept forgetting something. I felt like crying and could feel so much anxiety. I had no sleep the night before and could only think about the wedding.

Once we got to the hotel I felt this calmness come over me and everything was perfect, more then I could possibly hope and dream for.

It still feels so weird calling Justin my husband… He has truly been the most amazing rock, my husband who gave me the wedding of my dreams and I am truly thankful for that.

I wanted to show you guys professional photos, but that could take weeks! I will be sure to sure them with you all as you guys have grown to be my online family too. For snippets of our wedding day… you are welcome to have a look at my Instagram feed.

Glad it all worked out so well on the day and any anxiety was relatively short lived. Sounds like a beautiful day and oh my, weren’t you just the most beautiful bride too!
