We're starting a new series on the blog. Where our brides agree to it, we want to share their advice and tips on what they had just experienced while planning their own wedding... just like she would tell a friend if she had just gotten engaged. 

We had a great time the day Annerien and Heinz tied the knot. They are such an amazing couple and it's such a privilege sharing your day when two people are so deeply in love and adore each other endlessly. We feel happy to have walked this journey with them thus far.

My personal favorite part, was their first dance they had choreographed. During the couple shoot, they practiced a part of it, and that's what you're seeing in the gif. 

But enough from me, here's Annerien's advice and our favorite images from the day.



My wedding was so easy to organize because my and Heinz's parents were fantastic. I really had little to do and didn't have to get much together.

My advice is to know what you want. (A pinterest board is a good place to collect your ideas and to convey this message to everyone involved.)

Everybody who is involved in organizing the wedding needs to have a good idea of what you want and they need to be committed to make it happen. 

You need to be willing to compromise. Things don't always work out like you imagined in the beginning, but at the end of the day it will be perfect.

Don't settle with service from your vendors/suppliers. You only get married once and they need to provide what you asked for and what you paid for.

Make sure that you know what the minister's message is. Don't let him surprise you.

And (she added this one in on her own I promise), book Yellow Lab ahead of time to ensure they can capture your perfect day in the prettiest, MOST BEAUTIFUL images and memories.

The bride's mom drew all the table numbers. Too beautiful! What a creative family, because Annerien knitted all the women's favors! 

Everything was so beautiful!

The couple shoot is our favorite part!

We LOVED all the details from this one of a kind wedding and the food was absolutely amazing. 

Congratulations again Annerien and Heinz. You are so perfect for each other and we know you will always be happy.
