Cindy & Steyn are this incredible couple that mix their serious, detailed natures, with a wildly funny & a little bit cheeky side!

I honestly dont think they could have chosen a space, the Waterfall Retreat & Environmental Center, or way of celebrating that reflected all of these attributes more perfectly!

With the couple living overseas, & their special group of friends & family gathering from far & wide, they had a weekend of not only wedding celebrations but, family reunions & college day catch ups.

We kept their decor & flowers a great mix of them both. The more masculine, structured & simple zen type forms that worked so well with the venue & Steyn’s influence… balanced with the more feminine side of Cindy, coming through in the softer pinks, roses & whimsy accents of the wild grass, that surrounds the reserve.

From their forever promises under their flower arch overlooking the valley, to their smooth dance moves under the fairy lights (at the waterfall AND on the rooftop garden), Cindy & Steyn celebrated their small wedding in the most beautiful & authentic way.

I was very lucky to not only be the first to host a wedding at this very special venue but to be a small part of this much bigger day & family union. Thank you guys for letting me come along for the wild ride that was your wedding day!
