Lisa and Alex met in Canada when he was over on holiday. They continued their romance in Cape Town when she moved back with him and fell in love with our beautiful city. After a while, they made their way back to Canada where Alex completed his MBA and Lisa studied psychiatry.
When the time came, they decided to plan a Stellenbosch wedding
After months of emailing, texting and FaceTimes, they all arrived in Cape Town in the week leading up to their wedding. I finally got to meet them in real life but it felt like we already knew each other.
We originally planned a complete outdoor celebration as Lisa had envisioned the reception outdoors but Cape Town had other plans and the day before we had to make the decision to move the dinner reception indoors. Luckily I have amazing suppliers and we were able to recreate the original outdoor look inside which still turned out to be an amazing experience.
The ceremony was set in the gorgeous tree-lined lane and included a special song sung by the groom’s niece. The couple looked incredibly chic and elegant. The wedding was a complete family affair and the kids had as good a time as the parents did, not forgetting how they dominated the dance floor.
It was such a wonderful experience and I count myself so lucky to have been a part of this incredible love story.
