Because this is the kind of (amazing) couple they are, the duo didn't just arrange for transportation to take us to Morgansvlei Country Estate for their wedding, they also arranged wine and cheese-tasting at Fairview winery on the way.
I've been known to get excited at wine tastings and have confused my taste buds into thinking I should purchase a lot of wine that I didn't actually like. Yakima Valley, anyone? But Fairview was different. I bought a case and have enjoyed every bottle of it and if I could've shipped the cheese home, I would've done it.
And then, it was Emily and Justin's wedding day. The Main Event.
I'm not sure how Emily managed to look so beautiful, so at ease after having entertained her American guests for several days, shuttling us from one tourist attraction to the next and making sure we were having a good time. She was flawlessly stunning and glamorous, while still looking like her laid-back self. Justin looked pretty handsome too.
The wedding was, in a word, gorgeous. In two words, gorgeous and HOT. I'll spare you the sweaty face dancing pictures. Yikes.
In that regard, I hope their wedding is a metaphor for the life that they will have together - one that is full of laughs, new experiences, beautiful views, gin drinks and sweaty dancing. One perfect day among many to come.
Cheers and Congrats Justin and Emily!
