Our Wedding Day

“All, everything that I understand, I only understand because I love.”
— Leo Tolstoy

The Venue

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever.”
– The Notebook

Nestled in the Magalies Mountains on the banks of the Magalies River, 40 minutes from Johannesburg & Pretoria rests Green Leaves. We offer unforgettable weddings, comfortable accommodation, productive conferences and special events. Our gracious French style architecture opens onto picturesque gardens, landscaped and manicured all year round to ensure the perfect country setting.

Our Very Own Love Story

WE FIRST MET – SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY!

It was a typical Saturday night and I was looking for plans, so I ended up meeting my friend at a bar (but I drove so no drinking for me!). We started at one place but as the night progressed my friends were looking for more. First they wanted live music, so we went to a place with a band. Then they wanted to dance so I chose a place where we could dance. As I waited on the sidelines watching my friends dance, a different kind of guy approached me — he seemed nice and he wasn’t slurring his words so I thought he would be a perfect buffer! Time goes one, he asked for my number, I gave him my real one (gasp!) and didn’t think too much of it. Heard from him the next day… and we’ve been together ever since. Who would have thought that playing wingwoman would land me a boyfriend?

WE FINALLY WENT ON A DATE – ONLY TOOK A YEAR!

On our first date, we went to a restaurant, where she ordered a steak with all the fixings, a fully loaded baked potato, and a Budweiser. The waiter turned to me, and I simply said, “I’ll have what she’s having.” It’s been true love ever since.

WE FELL IN LOVE INSTANTLY – WELL ALMOST!

Previous dates brought me red roses, candy, even jewelry. Instead, he brought food—Looney Tunes frozen dinners, to be precise. He said, “I looked in your fridge; it was pretty empty.” How could I not fall in love?

… AND HE FINALLY PROPOSED!

My fiancé proposed to me while we were on vacation in San Francisco and Napa Valley. While we were touring Sterling Vineyard, we went on a private walk amongst the grapes. It was gorgeous. He stopped and told me he had been having such a wonderful first half of our trip with me as his girlfriend. Then he knelt down on one knee and said he would love to spend the rest of it with me as his fiancée. I was so surprised that I had to ask him if I had said ‘yes!’
