Nelis and Xandri had a beautiful vintage inspired wedding with pops of red everywhere from Xandri’s nails to the fabric wrapped around the trees. The details are all so lovely, and Lizelle Lotter‘s photography really takes our breath away!

Vintage Inspired Wedding in South Africa

We love the idea of a typewritten invitation! So cute.

Outdoor vintage inspired wedding with red aisle runner

Xandri’s favorite moment was walking down the aisle and when Nelis’s dad (who married them) said, “you may kiss the bride!”

We love her red nails and those hearts hanging from the tree!

The table assignments were typewritten and hung in assorted vintage frames.

Bunting decorated the reception tent, and cute little fabric hearts hung on each chair!

The lovely centerpieces included vintage books and pitchers and teapots filled with wildflowers.

Xandri’s advice for future brides is: Just enjoy every moment and treasure every bit of the journey – it goes by so fast!

Thank you Lizelle and congrats to Nelis and Xandri!!
