South African wedding | Photo by Love Made Visible | 100 Layer Cake

Welcome back from the long weekend! We know it’s probably a little harder than usual to get back to reality on this Monday morning, and we gotta warn ya, Karin + Craig’s dreamy South African wedding isn’t going to make it any easier. Between the sweeping views, rustic feel, and natural moments captured by Love Made Visible, it’s one enchanting affair.

From Karin: We loved the idea of having our entire wedding outside, from the forest reception to the canapés on the lawn, to the reception on the veranda. It is a very unpretentious space and was the perfect venue to create a festival for celebrating love.

Our good friend Miles played a lovely tune on the sitar when I walked down the aisle.

Karin’s dad made her bronze crown and Karin made Craig’s. Um, do you think they’ll make one for us?

Karin’s mama made all the wreaths on the walls using greenery from the family’s beach house garden.
