Nicole and Dave hosted their wedding at the stunning Cavalli Estate which is situated in the picturesque Stellenbosch. There is no surprise that Nicole looked breath-taking in her slim fitting, off white wedding dress. (She always looks so beautiful) The guests enjoyed the amazing views, delicious canapes and the sound of Chris Werge while the couple took their bridal portraits.
At enterting the reception the guests saw the beautiful set up with a variety of pastel flowers and naked bulbs. Being part of Nicole & Dave’s wedding was really such an honour. From the start they knew exactly what they wanted and enjoyed every step of the planning process. I am so glad to have such amazing clients and friends.
MORE ABOUT THE DAY
We got engaged in May 2016, and had intentions to get married somewhere around October or November of 2017. Dave would be overseas for part of 2017 for work, and so it was clear that we needed someone special to journey with us in planning our wedding, both from the other side of the world as well as from the other side of the country. We were abundantly blessed to find that special person in Kristin, a member of the IDO4U team. In June 2016, we met Kristin for the first time, and it felt a lot like meeting a longtime friend that you could talk to and dream with for hours.
Before we knew it, we were in Cape Town shortlisting venues, and we were fortunate enough to have Kristin leading the way, visiting nearly 10 venues with us all across Cape Town until we found “the one”. We would recoup together by enjoying wine tasting, pizza and laughter. These “in-between” memories are some of what made the whole experience with IDO4U as unforgettable as what it was.
We spent more weekends travelling between Johannesburg and Cape Town to do wedding planning, but we must admit that in part it was completely unnecessary. From the moment the IDO4U team was on board with our wedding, we knew that our special day was in safe and trustworthy hands. Travelling to Cape Town for wedding planning was simply a wonderful excuse to eat lots of cake, try lots of menu options, and marvel at the beauty of our venue.
Fast forward many emails, calls, voicenotes and texts, the 4th of November 2017 had arrived. We have no doubt that Kristin was the most incredible wedding planner on the day of the event, but this has been reaffirmed by countless guests that approached us post the wedding to compliment IDO4U for their effectiveness, attention to detail, investment in the day and the couple, and love for what they do.
Thank you Kristin for everything that you did, not only on the 4th of November, but for the nearly eighteen months before that. We can never thank you enough for your guidance, advice, and the effort that you took to make our wedding exactly what it was – the best day of our lives. You are so much more to us than the person that coordinated our wedding, you are a dear, dear friend as well. We can’t begin to imagine what our wedding day would have looked like without you and everything that you did.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
David and Nicole
