New Zealander Wendy wrote to me and let me know that she is headed off to Kuthaba Safari Lodge in South Africa for her cousin Ashleigh’s wedding – and Wendy is one of the bridesmaids! She wanted these inspiration boards to be a surprise for Ashleigh and Craig – isn’t that the sweetest thing?! Ashleigh & Craig’s wedding will have a champagne and ivory color palette with an ‘Out of Africa’ vibe – I love it! And what’s even better is that Wendy wrote a note for her cousin – scroll down to see it!
Although your journey towards forever has just begun, I just wanted to say ….
May your love for each other,
Carry you through the adventures of life.
I wish that your dreams are big, and your troubles are small.
Always remember, that loving someone is a leap of faith.
You are giving them your heart ,
and trusting them not to break it.
I wish for you, a life of laughter and a life of happiness,
But most importantly, I wish that your love for one another,
only grows with time and never fades.
I am so honoured to be a part of your special day, and cannot wait until we are together again to celebrate your love for each other.
Let the countdown begin.
Love always Wends x
Congratulations to Ashleigh & Craig on your engagement and thank you Wendy for requesting these inspiration boards for them!
