riankas weddings dorne eric tres jolie wedding00001Tears of joy running down my face, Dolla is getting married… This is the day, someone so special and dear to my heart can say I Do, to the love of her life: Eric.  From beautiful soft pastel decor to the elegant and gorgeousous wedding gown, Dorne’s Hair and Makeup was the perfect finishing touch!  A huge Thank you to Lindi Bester from Kohl Make up!!! Not only did Lindi do the hair and make-up flawless  she got the most important part of the wedding day – Maid of Honour.  As Lindi’s best friend from primary school, I felt it fitting to share Lindi’s beautiful speech for those that could not attend the wedding:

“I”t’s such a privilege to stand here and speak on what is the most important and pivotal day in the lives of two people.  Getting married is not about a party, or a cake… its not even about the guests, its about two people making a promise to each other… promising to care about everything… the good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundanene things… All of it, all the time, everyday.  You are saying:  Your life will not go un-witnessed because you will be each others witnesses.  Lovingly giving your attention to the other without judgement.  Bearing witness says… You are not alone, I see you, I witness what you are experiencing… I LOVE YOU…”

As usual, I love to add something special from our wedding couple to our blog post.  Dorne & Eric’s little story from their perfect day:

The sky was blue, the breeze swirled into the chapel…soft thundering sounds of Enya Caribbean blue cueing the start of the first ceremony that crowned our life’s together…the big wooden heavy doors opened to the chapel and there my prince awaited me with tears in his eyes and a sparkle of true love. It hit us like a house of bricks…our amazing looooooong awaited day finally arrived. A quick flashback to the day we met a brief friend request on Facebook and there after becoming better friends with conversations about off road bikes to weird pants and a sprite advert Drake Graham stared in….From our backgrounds as Portuguese/German and Afrikaanse boertjie meisie….here the language of love we knew had no boundaries. Our Journey together had its challenges and situations that would break a normal bond. We fought for what was important and slayed the dragons that threatened our fairy tale, we rose stronger and we are an example of what strong friendship, believing in what is important and working together can overcome.  Surrounded by our family and friends, “friends” is a to small and ordinary word to use….we were surrounded by amazing family and everything was perfect–beyond perfect…it was our day with a slice of perfection. We would like to take this opportunity to thank every single one of our 40 guests for their tears of joy, laughs, Elvis dancing moves and most of all just for being so freaken amazing and sharing our LITTLE TREASURE IN TIME with Eric and myself, we love you all! Love D and E

Rianka & Floris
