Chrisjan and Juanita | Wedding | Lace on Timber

“Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. “ Song of Solomon 8:6-7

Chrisjan and Juanita had a very beautiful and intimate wedding at the beautiful Lace on Timber venue.

I have been to many weddings and I have not seen two people so much in love like these two souls….Wow. I always tell my clients that they should forget about me while I am taking photos because they should create memories together, and they should chat and interact with each other to etch the memory in their brain. And I know its difficult to achieve this because I am obviously walking with them and I am in their face but they actually had moments where they completely forgot about me (I could have slipped away and they wouldn’t have noticed), and I could see in the emotion in Juanita’s face that she is completely smitten about her prince, Chrisjan.

Chrisjan and Juanita is also completely sold out to Jesus, and their whole wedding was drenched in His goodness and provision. Juanita testified many times during the day how they were blessed by so many amazing people in her life and how God had provided for them to have their fairytale wedding.

Many things stood out for me about their wedding, but one thing that I will never forget was during the speeches. Every person who had a turn to speak were so encouraging and uplifting about the person they were addressing, almost like speaking life into and over that person they are talking about. I felt truly inspired and lifted up by the amazing words everyone had to say. It really gave me HOPE that if there are more people like these people in SA, then I can have a restored hope in SA at the moment. #trulyinspired #imstaying #Jesusistheanswer

Oh how I also loved Juanita’s dress. It’s a Lady Dianah dress from the Bridal House and OH MY WORD…Juanita looked amazing…and the look on Chrisjan’s face when he say her for the first time….wow!
