This is going to be a mammoth post and I’m not talking the woolly kind! Kristi and AJ’s West Coast wedding at the stunning Strandkombuis restaurant on the dunes was amazing! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! Surfers to the core, this could not have been a more perfectly chosen spot. Beaches, dunes, salt pans, rustic luxury, relaxed elegance, decor details to die for and the best fish soup this side of Paris – in fact Parisians will be calling for that recipe. So many elements of their day were specially crafted over evenings of many a glass of wine (so I’m told :-D) with their wedding genius bridesmaids, Kim and Kate of Wedding Concepts fame. Their attention to detail really shone through, even down to the fact that since they got engaged they have been collecting driftwood which AJ made into the menu board below as well as the huge hand-crafted wooden heart behind their table. Dedication and creativity hand in hand.
Kristi and AJ, I’m so delighted that you chose me to share such a perfect day and I am totally blown away by your zesty ‘take life and make it’ attitude. My crystal ball predicts so many happy years ahead for you two!
