This week is all about weddings on the blog.  Yesterday I posted about how we took the kids to visit the venue we were got married and today I’m sharing photos of my sister’s wedding.

One of the reasons for our trip South Africa last month was to see my beautiful little sister get married.

They chose to have their wedding in Franschhoek on a little farm/vineyard nestled at the base of the spectacular Cape mountains.  It really was quite stunning.  So for wordless Wednesday I though I’d share the photos that I took, hopefully they tell the story.

It was a magical day.  So intimate and special, and best of all it was the first that that my parents, my brother and sister and I had all been together at the same time in about 6 years.

Have you ever been to Franschhoek?  I’d go back again in a heartbeat.
