A Zusterstroom wedding at Meulstroom Lodge was what Tanja and Xander had opted for their wedding day. The major perk about working at destination weddings is the amazing venues I end up going to and seeing. They are generally the most exquisite places that I wouldn’t ordinarily come across without doing what I love. This beautiful family owned venue is one that is fit for a perfect wedding, and that is exactly what it was for Tanja and Xander. From the custom made green house reception venue to the freshly grown grass, just for the day and the newly built white house where the girls got ready, everything was tailor made for Tanja’s dream wedding day. She worked so hard to make it everything that she had dreamt about and it truly ended up being the perfect day. I had met Tanja and done her makeup before when it was her sisters wedding a few years ago and when she called me to do her hair and makeup for her wedding, I was very excited about the classic look that she had in mind, it is not everyday that a bride insists on having red lips on her wedding day, but it was a request that I was eager to fulfill. She looked absolutely exquisite on her wedding day and was such a pleasure to be around. Tanja, you were such a lovely bride!
