Liesl is from South Africa. Dean hails from Australia. They met on a yacht in Florida. After their meeting, Dean moved to the Caribbean while Liesl headed to France. Dean visited Liesl in Europe where they spent ten amazing days in Tuscany before returning to the yacht Liesl worked on where Dean was offered a position on the same yacht. The next 3 years took them all over the world; the Mediterranean, Egypt, the Caribbean, New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. To say these two are world travelers would be an understatement and to say they are two of the sweetest people we’ve ever met who were completely meant for each other would be quite the understatement as well :)
The wonderful Cedarwood put together the most stunning day for these two. Recalling their amazing trip to Tuscany, these two eloped in the hills of Tennessee. They were married in an intimate ceremony on the dock overlooking Mooncake Lake with a dinner overlooking the hills. There were so many gorgeous details that I just couldn’t share them all, so here is just a small taste of all the beauty!
They had their first look out on the dock. Just love the smiles :) These two should be models. We had to eventually let them get married but I could have photographed these two all day long :) Such a sweet ceremony. Their dinner was straight out of the Talented Mr. Ripley. So much Tuscan style. Cheers from such sweet friends!
And off to South Africa…in a row boat :) Congratulations, you two! It was such a joy to document your wedding day.
This day was perfection because of a few amazing people…

[…] We were honored to be part of the wonderful Cedarwood team that designed a truly gorgeous event that represented their journey. Recalling their amazing trip to Tuscany, they eloped in the hills of Tennessee. They had an intimate ceremony on the dock at Cedarwood’s Mooncake Lake and then dined on wine and cheese, overlooking the hillside. There were so many gorgeous details, but here’s a little preview by Kristyn Hogan. […]
You have done so many spectacular weddings but this one is so
intimate & what an interesting life they have shared.
Yes, they should be models!~
Now that’s the way to do a wedding……..with the most important people right there, a beautiful setting, and a whole lot of love and personal meaning. Hmmmmm……sounds familiar…….sounds like Matt & Kristyn’s wedding!
These photos are stunning and so full of emotion. Kristyn & Matt, you did a wonderful job. You are right, they could be models and these images should be in a magazine :)
These pics are freakin’ beautiful!
These images are why we love you so much :) We know you’ll always capture the beauty. Every time. Thanks for the beautiful post.
Just makes me so excited. So grateful. Cannot wait. STUNNING!
