I loooooooove destination weddings! (So be warned, there are lots of photos!)

Noah and Michaela (Micky) had me excited ever since the first email I received from them. They told me about the Namibian farm wedding (where Micky grew up) and that they would get married under a huge tree…in the middle of “nowhere.” Sounded like my kind of wedding! They forgot to tell me about Micky’s yellow flowers, her blood-red lips, her pink nails and grass green shoes…and the fact that Maré and myself would have breakfast on the stoep with a beautiful view and all kinds of cheeses, cold meats and creamed honey (like only the Namibia people can!)…that we could watch the porcupines feed…that we would be treated like friends…that they love Jesus so much that they are thining…that the evening of their wedding it’s going to be “supermoon“…that the couple is crazy in love…and crazy…that they treasure their friends and family in a special way…that they laugh from their tummies…that they have endless energy and ideas…that some of Noah’s USA friends came all the way to Namibia for just the weekend to share in the special day…

I was so glad that Maré, a friend and photographer could go with me. She helped me soooo much! Our time after the ceremony was a bit on the tight side, so she photographed the bridal party while I was shooting Micky and Noah’s couple photos. Maré also took a lot of the decor shots, while I was shooting the service and got some killer images on the dance floor later the evening. So…this wedding really is a combined effort between myself and the super talented Maré Rootman. Thanks Rei!


And then thank you thank you thank you Micky and Noah… It’s only with fond memories I think of your wedding. ENJOY your images!!!!



Day before the wedding:











The top room was ours! Treated like princesses im telling you!




































Tough men, these Namibian boys… (:







Loooooved watching these porcupines. We had 2 as pets on our farm growing up! Their names was Ot and Tot.

Did you know that it’s a myth that they shoot their guils? They are released if you get in contact with them. So don’t run into them!




Wedding day:







































The bridesmaids dresses were AWESOME!!! venta de cialis













































































Singing bridal party:












































Love this one!







The ladies sang a beautiful song to Noah and Micky:





































































Noah’s parents, all the way from Wisconsin:






























































The towel they used after washing each other’s feet left their hands green!











































Bokdrolletjies! (:



















Fresh way of cutting and eating the cake!

























Look who came to join the sweet party!































































Maré and myself had so much fun:



Supermoon! And a super new married couple:
