Lana & Jody | Wedding | Winery Road Forest | Stellenbosch
I don’t know where to start with recapping Lana & Jody’s wedding at Winery Road Forest. There are so many beautiful venues in Stellenbosch, but Winery Road Forest really just steals my heart every time I’m privileged enough to shoot there. This was a wedding day that I was excited about for weeks!
They had their ceremony in the forest – one of the big appeals of Winery Road Forest – surrounded by the lush trees and pine leaves scattered at their feet. We did the couple shoot at various places around the venue, but two spots really left an impression on me. The dam with the view of the mountains in the background – this is one of the few venues with such a stunning view! – and the gorgeous chapel, but just a few shots from the outside.
Lana had a secret outfit change planned for the reception, and I followed her and Jody into Winery Road Forest’s new accommodation to get a few photos of them getting changed before stepping out to give them a moment. With this second outfit, Jody and Lana changed into custom sneakers that they had made for their wedding from Nike – such a fun addition to her amazing pantsuit!
I even managed to get onto the dance floor (peep me dancing in this blog post!) and have a little boogie at the reception – it was the playlist of my dreams! Sometimes you can’t help but shake your booty on the sidelines.
(side note: brides and grooms are always welcome to invite me onto the dance floor. I WILL tear it up!)
It was a day of utmost perfection, and I am so blessed and glad to have met Lana & Jody. It’s not every client that makes you feel so loved, appreciated and cared for on their own wedding day.
Of course this couldn’t have been done without excellent suppliers:
