Brad & Lauren's love story starts in the best way possible - over their mutual love for bacon! Some will argue that there is no better foundation for romance. They quickly became friends and discovered each other's 'extreme' passions - Brad's for excel spreadsheets and buying bacon by the kilogram and Lauren's for NOT washing dishes. Soon it was clear to everyone that these two would one day be together. 

And so, exactly 1 year, 1 month and 11 days after sharing their feelings for one another, they said 'I do' in front of all the friends and family who had been and will be witness to their love story as it continues to grow. It was a hot April afternoon and the bridal party looked particularly classy in their all black outfits. You might also pick up that I was slightly obsessed with the bride's stunning dress and details!

I was so touched by this couple's warm hearts and their deep love for their families. Joy radiated from them and saturated their whole wedding day. I got to witness the belly laughs and sincerity that first drew them to one another. This is a love deeply rooted in Jesus.

Congrats Mr & Mrs van der Westhuizen!
