our wedding day: ceremony

Saturday, June 25, 2011

today i will share our very special ceremony with you.  it was over so quickly and luckily i have these photos to remember this time in the day forever...


the green gardens...
it took me ages to finish the material flowers that was hanging in the trees & in the dome 

my sister, janine made all the paper cranes & they looked so so beautiful with the rest of the decorations. {thank you again my sister}.  the popcorn cones was used as confetti.
 my lovely sisters (and niece) walking down the aisle
and now it is my turn, (we walked down the aisle with Sigur Ros's Hoppipolla).  my poor dad was so nervous.


my niece, katinka, looked so adorable, here she was swinging the rings to me and making sure that i handed her little red handbag back to her.
we had such a funny & weird (but in a nice way) minister. 
one more of the bridesmaids & tinkie
to give both sets of parents a feeling that they are part of the day, we asked the two moms to read 2 little poems after we did our own vows.  i just LOVED our vows - i am definitely planning on framing them. my mom was a bit scared to read her poem since its in english (and my WHOLE family is completely afrikaans), but my mum sounded great and she shouldn't have worried about it.
popcorn confetti:

and we are married!!

sorry for the pictures overload BUT it was so difficult to pick between all these photos.
