Karl & Elizca - The One - Caledon

Karl & Elizca

It was a rainy Saturday in April…

They say it’s good luck when it rains on your wedding day. As a total romantic and optimist I totally believe thats true. So this is how it went down…

The rain seemed to bring out the greenery and painted the valley that surrounds The One with misty hues of grey and green. What an amazing setting. Inside this beautifully designed venue were the team busy bringing the magic and set the stage for the festivities to take place that evening. And how festive and inviting it was!

Umbrella n hand we made our rounds to see how Elizca and Karl were doing. The weather surely did not influence their excitement and final choice to get married in the forest non the less.

Their ceremony was emotional, beautiful and I felt so grateful to be a part of their amazing day. (I get teary every time I look at these…)

Blessed with a shower of colorful flowers and leaves we set off to capture their alone time before the celebrations. We headed up the mountain (as I tend to do on weddings) with the hope to catch a glimpse of the sun that has not shown her face at all that day.

With both myself and the videographer team (secondlukefilms) making peace with cloudy rainy weather we bounced around with Karl & Elizca who were happy to climb on rocks with high heels. (#nailedit)

Then, all of a sudden, the sun in all her glory decided to kiss Karl and Elizca right on the face! BOOM!! I still cannot explain this moment. But perhaps a snippet of their favourite song can… It all came together perfectly.

Oh, Saturday Sun - Vance Joy

Oh, Saturday Sun
I met someone
Out on the West Coast
I gotta get back, I can't let this go
Oh, Saturday Sun
I met someone
Don't care what it costs
No ray of sunlight's ever lost
Ever lost

And still the memory's right there
She put the breeze in my hair
No kiss was softer, softer than this
I'm readin' her lips, oh
Each line I read
She left her books in my bed
And her song in my head
I've been undone

I wish you all the rays of sunlight and love in your future together as husband and wife. You are super special.
