The juxtaposition between the formal attire and the rustic backdrop in this Lace On Timber wedding is truly a sight to behold. Kelsey and Brett love classic, sophisticated style but equally adore rustic industrial vibes. So, when they found Lace On Timber, it was love at first sight. The steal framed, open-air ceremony chapel is unlike anything we’ve seen and gave them the perfect balance of an industrial aesthetic in the middle of nature. Pebbles & Lace florists created beautiful garlands to line the concrete aisle, as well as white cascading florals to hang on the entrance doors, all of which tied into the garlands and installations in the reception hall. Kelsey’s gorgeous Anna Georgina was as timeless as they come, and her bridesmaids’ navy blue dresses complemented her sophisticated look beautifully. Page & Holmes could not have been a more perfect choice to document this stunning South African wedding.

The most important to us in planning the wedding was finding the right venue. As a lot of our guests were traveling from around South Africa, we wanted them to have an amazing time that they will never forget. We wanted the venue to speak for itself; naturally beautiful, a space that immediately gives off a good vibe. The second most important aspect was the food. We are both foodies, and we wanted the food to be talking point.
We chose Lace On Timber as our wedding venue because it gave the perfect balance between rustic industrial and elegance. The reception and chapel areas were like nothing we had seen before. The unique chapel, made up of a metal frame, allowed the beautiful forest to be the backdrop of our ceremony. The reception area — with its high ceilings, raw brick, and large industrial windows — was the perfect juxtaposition for our black tie wedding.
It was really important to me when choosing my wedding dress that it was unique and reflected my personal style. I wanted to feel like the most feminine, polished version of myself. I loved how my dress is both modern and timeless.

Congratulations to Kelsey and Brett, and a big thanks to Page & Holmes for sharing this gorgeous wedding with Junebug! Wondering how to throw a black tie wedding that’s as fun as it is sophisticated? Take a cue from Sarah and Chase, whose black tie Santa Barbara wedding was far from stuffy!
An utterly stunning wedding. Really can’t look away for that beautiful dress.
