Alisha and Emmanuel
The Cellars-Hohenort, Constantia, Cape Town
The Cellars-Hohenort was once again the beautiful backdrop to another gorgeous wedding! Alisha and Emmanuel chose to have a destination wedding and to fly 30 of their closest friends and family from the USA to enjoy a festive celebration in the scenic Cape Town.
They were all from the USA. Alishas’ family are from Tennessee. Emmanuels’ family are from Kansas but this gorgeous couple met in Houston after they had moved there for work purposes. It was definitely written in the stars!
This gorgeous bride has to be one of the easiest brides I have ever encountered. Emails were pretty minimal. All she asked was for a meeting when she arrived in Cape Town on the Tuesday. Wedding was on a Friday at one of my favourite hotels, the Cellars-Hohenort. Decor was tasteful but minimal. Colour palette was white and green. Their delicious wedding cake and the vanilla and red velvet cupcakes were made by Wades’ Cakes!
Anneqah Martin was the make-up artist who added some polish to this gorgeous beauty. Alisha is genuinely a natural beauty, with the most gorgeous dimples. When she laughs, she lights up the whole room!
Emmanuel is quieter and a little more serious. Alisha is a perfect catalyst for Emmanuel! She definitely creates a chemical reaction for him! He shows his softer and fun side in her presence. They are without a doubt a perfect combination.
Emmanuels’ dad married them in the gardens of The Cellars-Hohenort in Constantia. What an absolute blessing to be able to marry your son to his soulmate.
Ryan from Cape Dj’s got the guests onto the dancefloor and kept them there for the whole evening. He read his crowd well and we had a sure winner for the title of the “Dancing Queen.”
And then just like that, this perfect day had to come to an end! It was time for their guests to catch their shuttles back to their hotels and it was time for this newly married couple to enjoy their first night as Mr & Mrs in the honeymoon suite at The Cellars-Hohenort. A big thank you to the wonderful staff at the venue, who always deliver superior service with such beautiful smiles on their faces. Once again, it was a delight to capture another wedding at your venue.
