My Baby Sister is MARRIED! {heart}

Good Morning!!!
It is Halfway through the week! And I have 5 WORK days left before it's HOLIDAY!!!! Can I get a WOOP WOOP!!!???

As all of you know we had a very exciting past weekend. My little only sister got married. Yes she is younger than I am, but who cares, she found her perfect partner. So have I but we are just not ready to take that step yet. All good things come to those who wait they say!
Friday I stayed with the Bride to be, and she was extremely relaxed. {weird} I would have probably been freaking out by that time. We went to bed got a really good nights rest and then the BIG day arrived. The one we have been waiting months for.

The morning was a bit big rush! Everyone trying to get all their things ready in time. And yet again my sister was as calm as a cat. Once again I would have been running around like a headless chicken at this stage. We all got ready for the big day, got into the car and on our way to Church. As we stopped in front of the Church the other Bridesmaid whispered to me "I'm nervous all of a sudden", unfortunately my sister has radar ears and heard that. And then she freaked with a "don't be nervous! now I am nervous!" haha and all we could do was laugh. Beautiful Bride, Beautiful ceremony, beautiful reception. Too many speeches but who cares. It was perfect! My sister looked perfect.

So without further ado....

    1. Thank you Vicky!
      I agree with you, a lot of people are getting married this young in South Africa.
      I am not ready for that yet.
      But I assume when you find your other half it comes naturally.

  9. Very nice pictures, it looks like a really beautiful wedding!
    Your sister's and your dress are lovely!

    xo Irene

    p.s. Do you speak Afrikaans? I saw the last picture and realised that maybe it was actually your mother tongue, I had never thought about it. hahaha I'm always curious about those linguistic things, probably because I really enjoy learning foreign languages!

    1. It was a beautiful wedding!
      Yes I am Afrikaans. :)
      I love foreign languages, wish I can learn as much as possible!
      I am starting with French now as Cedric speaks French. Not as easy as it looks! hehe
      Thanks for the sweet comments always!

    2. Haha good luck with French! I also find it quite difficult, despite it being close to Spanish, my mother tongue.
      I want to improve my German in 2013 and I would like to take up Russian :)

  10. Love your dress and of course the brides!
