South African Wedding with Colorful DIY Details

Francois and Adri had a gorgeous farm wedding in South Africa full of colorful DIY details. We can’t say enough good things about this amazing wedding, from the fabulous decorations to the out of this world photography by Welovepictures – we are swept off our feet!

Adri’s dress was custom made by Gerrit Pienaar. It incorporated lace from her grandmothers wedding dress, sweet!

Adri’s dad, a pastor, officiated their ceremony.

What a great idea to have different favors for the boys and the girls! The jam was made by a friend’s mom and all the favors were put together by Francois’ mother and sisters, who also made all the bunting.

To help stay within their budget, Francois and Adri incorporated decor they already had from their home. They also enlisted the help of family and friends on DIY projects, including the table runners which Adri’s mom made!

Sigh, so gorgeous!! Congratulations Francois and Adri, and many thanks to Welovepictures for letting us feature their photography!
