Chris + Odette | The Nutcracker Wedding, Parys

I want to introduce to you Mr and Mrs Kruger….

I have yet to meet two more spontaneous, quirky, sweet and fun-loving people! I felt a connection with Chris and Odette from the moment I met them and have been looking forward to their wedding so much since then! Everything about their day was beautiful and special; the decor, the soft heart-shaped fluffy things on the plates, the flowers, her delicately platted hair, her dress, the rain…

They really thought of everything, with the help of their awesome wedding coordinator (…and flower lady of the day, shhhh…) who even kept us from returning to the reception too soon as the guests were having so much fun playing games on the lawn! Of course this meant that we could play in the mud a little longer…!

Thank you so much for having us guys!!!! Your unique and amazing personalities and enormous laughs really made this a wedding to remember. I know Pikkie feels the exact same!

Rest your head and close your eyes
Everything will be okay
For when you wake with the sweet sunrise
It will be a brand new day
Turn down the lights and pull me close
Feel only the beating of our hearts as we lay
For when you wake with the soft morning breeze
It will be a brand new day
Relax your body and caress my soft hair
Let all of life's worries melt away
For when you wake with the warm summer scent
It will be a brand new day
Fall fast asleep and dream with me
Whisper "I love you, I'm here to stay"
For when we wake in each other's arms
It will be a brand new day

Meanwhile at the ranch…. ;)

Odette, who was getting dressed at the venue, tried to sneak a peek at Chris as they arrived.

    Oh WOW!!! You are such an amazing photographer!! This was one of the favourite days of my life and it wasn’t even my wedding! Odette and Chris love ‘in the moment’ photos. Not only did you do it brilliantly, but you captured who they are; fun, loving, spontaneous and awesome! Thank you so much for setting us at ease and for having a fantastic time with us! The best memories preserved forever!! Blessings*
