31 March 2010: More family than friends

Grandma's and great-aunts, nephews, nieces, cousins by the dozen, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters abounded at the joyous, carefree wedding of Rozanne and Minnaar - chums as toddlers, dating teenagers, long distance student buddies, reunited lovers and now bride and groom. Under the veil, Zan's smile was broad. So was Dad Pieter's.

Mom Rhoda designed and sewed the bride's gown, the bridesmaids' dresses and her own little froufrou number in midnight blue.

Years before Rhoda and Pieter had emerged as man and wife on the very same stone steps as Zan and Minnaar did on Saturday.

Rozanne, professional chef par excellence, baked and decorated the chocolate mousse cake, lavishly decorated with roses and her homemade choc truffles.

Gorgeous gals were mother and daughter, Rhoda and Madeleine

Speeches were short and snappy.

How nice it was to take my pale green beaded mother-of-the-bride outfit out of the closet where it has been safely stowed since Cath's big day and enjoy it once again.

Such great pictures of a wonderful day. It's nice to hear of the participation of the "designer mom" and the cake baker. Won't that hold wonderful memories for the bride and groom as the years go by! PAM
