alicia + johan | stellenbosch, south africa wedding by joy marie | destination wedding photographer

I love everything about this wedding! I love Alicia & Johan, and their families & friends. I love South Africa, and all of the beautiful African culture! It really was a perfect wedding day, and Alicia & Johan completely deserved it. This trip to South Africa was on the heels of a season that was very trying for me. Photographing their destination wedding felt like I was being handed a beautiful gift; a reminder that I am doing what I’m supposed to be doing. I adore Alicia & Johan to the core! They have such a special, deep connection with each other and both such beautiful kind souls. Alicia & Johan’s family & friends came from literally all over the world for their Stellenbosch, South Africa wedding at the historic Nooitgedacht Estate. We also had the privilege of working with South Africa’s premier wedding coordinator, Aleit Swanepoel, and his awesome team at The Aleit Group. Aleit’s design and decor ideas were truly amazing, and he and his staff made David and I feel like we were right at home in Stellenbosch. It was a magical wedding all around, and now here’s a little peek into the day. Alicia & Johan, I am so happy for you, and wish you a lifetime of joy and beautiful babies!!! xox
