Festime and Jurgen: Floral Fantasy
On the anniversary of when they first laid eyes on each other, Jurgen and Festime were celebrating with a romantic dinner date. “I turned away for one second that night and when I looked back, Jurgen was on his knees with a ring,” Festime says. “It was so magical and beautiful, I had tears of happiness. It was perfect.”
The lovebirds spent every moment they could with each other after they first met at a concert. “Sparks were flying when we first saw each other,” Festime says. “After that, we were so happy and in love, we couldn’t wait to tie the knot.”
In keeping with their fairy-tale love story, the couple chose a romantic floral theme for the big day, featuring a soft colour palette and lighting. A stunning flower wall feature tied the theme together, completing Festime’s dream of a floral wedding. “I wanted to feel like a princess and I sure did!” she says.
Festime chose to walk down the aisle in a ballgown-style dress with intricate beading and a ruffled skirt designed by Crocé & Colosimo Couture. “Directors Ines and Mario are one in a million,” the bride says. “From the first moment I walked into the store, I realised I couldn’t wear anything else but Crocé & Colosimo Couture. Both Ines and Mario are professional and knowledgeable in designing gowns and this made me feel at ease from the start. They created my dream wedding dress. I felt incredible.”
As the big day went by so quickly, Festime and Jurgen often look back at their wedding videos to remind themselves of all the wonderful moments. And if she could impart one piece of advice to brides-to-be, Festime says: “Breathe and enjoy the planning process and being with your partner. Be happy and take each moment as it comes.”
