I love getting to know the bride and groom’s families, as it gives me a better understanding of the couple and where they come from. Both Etienne and Chrisel have such warm, loving families, it is no wonder they are who they are. The love shining out of mom when looking at her beautiful daughter, mom and dad’s obvious pride in their son, dad’s hand on his daughter’s shoulders during Etienne’s speech; these are all moments of warm love and affection. The laughter surrounding us the entire day was just another facet to the wonderful friends and family of Etienne and Chrisel.
Etienne and Chrisel, with such solid support and love from your loved ones, I know you will have a happy forever together. I wish you all the best, and look forward to seeing you all again in April for Maryke and Henco’s wedding!
