Today’s wedding is the perfect example that the favorite restaurant down the street can be the ideal and most appropriate venue for your wedding. Gingerale Photgraphy recently captured the wedding of Caron and Ashley, that was held at the trendsetting and very popular restaurant Meet on Milner in Waterkloof, Pretoria. Well, enough said, let the images speak for themselves!
I Propose | Elaborate on how the two of you met.
We met at the student church we both attended and became good friends as part of a close-knit friendship circle. We were both attracted to each other, but worked very hard at pretending otherwise- fooling no one but ourselves. We spent the better part of two years driving our friends nuts with this before we decided to give dating a chance! Our relationship feels like a series of small steps in faith that our lives will keep being lead in the same direction. Four and half years after taking a chance on love, we got to promise to spend the rest of our lives together- adventures and all!
I said Yes | How did the proposal go down.
We had a rare weekend away in the Drakensberg for a conference. We had arrived late the night before and were up early in the morning, to get a chance to take in the view before the first session started. As we stood together soaking in the beautiful morning and surroundings, Ash started digging in his backpack, and the next thing I knew he was down on his knee with a ring in his hand. He asked me to marry him, and I said yes.
The Big Day | Tell us the most memorable moment of your wedding day.
Walking down the aisle towards Ashley. My heart was pounding, I was flanked by my father and brother, I saw loved ones on all sides, and my groom waiting for me at the front of the church.
Forever & Always | Any advice for future brides.
A whirlwind of a day with incredibly precious memories & special moments.
I Quote | Describe in one sentence your wedding day.
Decide what is important for you and your partner, and focus on those things. You’re allowed to do things your way (or even not do some things at all if you don’t want to!), even if it’s not “how it’s done”. If you get down the aisle with your groom, get to say “I Do” and be married in front of the people most special to you; the day is already a success. All the rest is just a bonus. But remember to pause during the day and take in what’s going on and who’s around you!
