“We set the precedent for their wedding to stand the test of time and to hold an aesthetic of pure elegance and glamour!”

From the first meeting with Texan couple, Iva and Javier, our creative team felt it compulsory to ensure that the look and feel for the wedding, from the pre–wedding dinner along with all the design elements across the wedding day to be as unique and elegant as the couple themselves. We set the precedent for their wedding to stand the test of time and to hold an aesthetic of pure elegance and glamour!

Iva and Javier celebrated their destination wedding in the picturesque setting of the Cape Winelands – where 60 of their closest friends and family traveled from across the world for not one but two celebrations to commemorate their special day. The weekend started with an impressive evening at Delaire Graff Estate filled with fine dining, award-winning wine, heart-warming speeches and spectacular views – a teaser for the main event that was to follow!

The traditional Catholic ceremony was kept understated, with a few key design elements that subtly introduced the classic colour scheme of ‘All white’. Our Wedding Concepts design signature came in where we conceptualised a look and feel for the evening that translated the couples taste and style. Before the guests were able to enter the reception space, Iva and Javier were able to get a sneak peak and quietly take in all the glamorous detailed touches that our team had created for them.

The reception space at Molenvliet Estate was completely transformed into an elegant masterpiece where no detail was spared! The room was beautifully draped to provide an intimate atmosphere and a combination of round and rectangle tables were styled with striking, all-white, mass floral arrangements consisting of pure white roses, hydrangeas and cascading orchids. The addition of crystals that adorned the tall arrangements together with the cut-crystal glassware and silver table details all added the right amount of glamour to this timeless setting!

For our team this wedding was a beautiful translation of timeless simplicity – designing and coordinating a destination wedding filled with incredible and unique settings, bespoke details and an overall luxury experience for both Iva and Javier and their international guest list – traits we pride ourselves on!
