Cape Town Wedding: Yolana & Douglas

Yolana and Douglas are such sweeties! They live in New York City so they hired me to help plan their beautiful Cape Town wedding. They settled on Vrede en Lust for their special day. Yolana wore the most gorgeous Pronovias wedding dress. She honestly looked like the dress was specifically designed for her and her alone. 

Yolana’s bouquet was one of my favourites, it was lush and full and worked perfectly with the over all look. Their ceremony was outside on a cool afternoon in May. It was a beautiful ceremony filled with love and adoring words.

Their cocktail hour was a lot of fun. The Kirya Kuti Project entertained the crowd, the food and wine flowed and the guests loved taking selfies with the stunning mountain and sunset in the background. 

This decor!!! I love it! Botanica did an outstanding job with the decor and flowers. The couples colour palette was gorgeous! I thought it all looked so lush and rich in colour and it worked so perfectly with the overall white venue. Yolana wanted the Protea included in the wedding to represent South Africa, and the darker reds compliment this flower so well. Wade did a magnificent job with the dessert station, it was so beautiful to look at. The cake was a firm favourite amongst the guests and it all tasted fabulous!

The couple danced into their wedding reception. The speeches made everyone laugh, and then cry, and then laugh some more. The love was felt deeply by the guests and the couple were so appreciative to everyone for being there with them. They thoroughly enjoyed dancing into the night with their friends and family and all the dance moves were fantastic!

To the lovely couple.. Thank you for giving me such freedom to plan your day. Thank you for being so great to work with, people like you make me love my job a little bit more. I wish you all the love and happiness in the world!
