WHAT MADE IT SPECIAL
I’m not actually sure how to formulate sentences that will accurately encompass what it was like to be at Jaclyn & Michael’s wedding.
Every single person present had far more than just ‘nice things’ to say about these two – and really, after you’ve known them for more than two seconds, you understand why. Jacs & Mike are the sort of people that everyone should know – simply because of how staggeringly wonderful they are. Warm, generous, loyal, loving, hilarious – they don’t do anything by halves, and loving their people is what they do best. What you see is what you get with them, and they both have the wondrous quality of making people feel truly valued.
Their wedding celebration was perfectly ‘them’. The ceremony – in a forest surrounded by only their immediate families, was beautiful in it’s raw simplicity. Everyone’s breath caught as Jacs and her Dad walked down the path to join Michael under a canopy of trees that bore witness to their beautiful vows. The reception – held under the trees at the gorgeous De Meye, left opportunities for many heart-to-heart conversations, and memories made over *delicious* food. Again, a reflection of the legendary hospitality that they treat people to in their own homes.
Every finishing touch was carefully considered, and complimented the relaxed, intimate vibe to a tee. I think you’ll agree that Jacs made one heck of a beautiful bride (seriously!!) and Mike one dashing groom, in the most understated way. During the informal speeches, person after person got up to talk about just how overjoyed they are that they’ve found each other. And really, you don’t have to look twice at them to realise that they just ‘fit’. Seamlessly and without question.
Jacs & Mike, two weeks after this BEAUTIFUL day my heart is still overflowing with joy for you guys, so I can only just imagine how you and your loved ones must feel! It was the hugest honour to document this day, here are a few (lying, there are a lot) pictures that hopefully tell the story better :)
