Kerissa & Jacob are an incredibly unique couple who are simply perfect for each other. They are so comfortable with each other and they're simply meant to be together. We literally couldn't stop them from making out on the entire creative shoot. Here are some words from the bride and a selection of photos from their day. Tell us your love story!
We first met in South Korea in 2013 at a friend's birthday. I was useless at flirting and literally ran away! Thankfully Jacob was persistent and chased. He proposed on top of a mountain in Lesotho in 2015.
Tell us what the inspiration behind your wedding was. How did your wedding fit your style and personality?
We wanted something intimate that represented both of our personalities. We both love the outdoors and fell in love with Tala as our venue. Our theme was a fusion of rustic country charm to represent Jacob's side and peacocks to represent my Indian Culture.
Where did you get married and what did you love about your venue?
Fig Tree Barn at Tala Game Reserve. Everything about it just screamed "us"! Its a little piece of paradise.
Do you have any tips and advice for couples planning a wedding?
Start planning early and try not to stress out! One day is not more important than an entire relationship.
Did your wedding invoice and DIY projects?
Not really. It was mostly planned from overseas with me being in Abu Dhabi and Jacob being in Alaksa.
Tell us about your experience working with us.
It has been fantastic. I had a vision of a fairytale and I know that these pictures have captured that fairytale love story!
