A Close And Intimate Wedding

Hubby and me at the "Greek" reception hall

We were recently invited to the wedding of a longtime friend. We had known the groom for over 20 years, actually we were still in our teens when we met, and now, to say that "we were all grown up" just doesn't quite express it.
 
Me with two of my longtime friends

The venue was at Garden World, situated in Muldersdrift. The wedding was attended by a handful of guests. The ceremony was held in a small garden. The minister, who promised not to give a long service, was funny and endearing. The exchanging of vows by the couple was sweet. 

The bride and groom looked on as the minister blessed the rings
 
The hall where the reception was held was magnificently decorated. With the pool in the middle and the pillars on the side of the pool, it reminded me of a Greek setting. There was a loft just above the entrance to the hall, and this served as the dance area where the newlywed had their first dance as well as the traditional throwing of the bouquet and garter.


 
The bride and groom had enough time to give thanks and entertain all their guests.
 
It turned out to be a perfect day to have a lovely wedding.
 
If ever, hubby and I have our "formal" wedding one day, complete with gown and the whole entourage....it was the kind of wedding that I would want.
