“Perhaps it is true that we do not really exist until there is someone there to see us existing, we cannot properly speak until there is someone who can understand what we are saying in essence, we are not wholly alive until we are loved.” – Alain De Botton, On Love
Lauren and Jon got married at the beautiful Olive Press in Boschendal. We loved documenting this celebration for them. Lauren was one of those incredibly calm brides that smiles all the way through any kind of tension or stress, and ends up making everyone else feel foolish for stressing out… about nothing really. And Jon just couldn’t stopped grinning from ear to ear. And that’s really what their entire wedding day felt like: Lauren and Jon didn’t get distracted by any frills, they were just present, present to each other, to the ridiculously beautiful setting, and present to all their friends and family that came from all over to celebrate with them.
We loved sharing this day with them, and loved that we got to document all the little moments in between too.
