This Minimalist Rustic Montpellier Wine Estate Wedding Included the Sweetest Foot-Washing Ceremony

April 28, 2019 | juliette

Imari and Jacques’ gorgeous Montpellier Wine Estate wedding was intimate, heartfelt, and full of swoon-worthy moments! The couple invited only 60 of their closest family and friends to celebrate their special day, which gave them the opportunity to pour so much love and care into every detail. The bride, who owns the woodworking studio ARK Workshop, made jars of honey and wooden spoons for each guest, served food on custom serving boards, and even made the light fixtures above the reception tables. The overall vibe was rustic and minimalist in a classic palette of black, white, and sage green, and it could not have been more beautiful. Photographer Lindie Wilton did a phenomenal job capturing every moment, especially the couple’s super sweet portrait session throughout the grounds!

The Couple:

Imari and Jacques

The Wedding:

Montpellier Wine Estate, Western Cape, South Africa

Enjoy every moment of it, you’re only planning your wedding once. Don’t get caught up in the little things. Sit together before you start planning the wedding and write down what is important to each of you. It’s a rehearsal for when marriage begins. Just keep in mind that you are two separate people with unique minds and ideas. The best wedding will almost always be a combination of both people’s ideas.

I have my own woodworking studio and wanted to give each person a handmade gift. Our favors were jars of locally harvested honey and wooden spoons with a verse saying, “Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!”
