If you think this wedding looks just so darn PRETTY in the pictures, you should have seen it in real life! Simoné and everybody worked so hard to make everything look the way it does! I am actually thinking of hiring her to organize my own wedding one day! I just have to thank Joni, my assistant, again for her amazing help! She was thrown into the deep end as an assistant when I asked her to capture the guests and some decor when we ran a bit behind schedule. You rock girl!
Ok.. I’ll let the photos do some talkin’!Decor collage below by JoniTwo photos below by JoniImage below by JoniThere are a lot of twins in this family! Simoné has twin brothers and Kobus also has a twin brother! And Simoné’s aunts are twins and someone in Kobus’ family as well.. so Simoné, good luck girlfriend! I’ll start buying nappies if I were you! hahaha…Decor collage below by Joni.Two images below by Joni.Image below by Joni.
