This was a very special wedding for me (Emma) as i’ve followed Jess and Steve’s love story via Instagram since the beginning. Jess and I have been long time blog pals and Instagram friends and when she asked if we would take her wedding photos I felt extremely excited and honoured!
Jess and Steve fell in love in California, and they were dating 5 months before they both had to move back home. Jess to South Africa and Steve to Australia. No sea could separate these two and they each made a trip out to see each other in the following months. In the summer of 2013 Jess went to Australia and Steve popped the question while on a trip to the Gold Coast… and 6 months later brought us to this day.
They got married at a place called Jex Estate in KZN. It’s a huge estate with two big old beach houses that set the perfect scene for a chilled coastal wedding.
Everything about this wedding was so incredibly beautiful! It wasn’t just that Jess looked like a total goddess, that she imported Peonies from Holland and that she had styled everything to perfection. Don’t get me wrong I was blown away by the beauty and the design of everything but most of all I was completely bowled over by the love that was in the room that day. The love Jess and Steve have for each other, for their families and for Jesus. I was inspired by their passion, their dreams and their wisdom. These two are going to be an incredible team, a force to be reckoned with!
We love you and believe in you and we feel so honoured to have captured the beginning of your marriage and your life together!
