Maximalist Floral South African Wedding with a Blush Wedding Dress

When it come to planning their May wedding, Adeline didn’t start out with the mindset that she wanted it to be unique of alternative; she just wanted a day that represented herself and her partner, Nelius, and what they love. They didn’t want traditions forced on them just because that’s what people do at weddings, so they nixed traditions like cake cutting and bouquet tossing, and kept some things they loved. “I just wanted to look pretty, marry my man and have loads of fun with the people I love the most!” explained Adeline. “Nelius wanted good food and drink, and that’s what the man got.”

“And last but not least, I found inspiration from cannabis – the actual appearance of the plant itself, and ideas that I’ve come up with and solidified while medicating.” As a chronic illness sufferer,  cannabis is a huge help not only with Kate’s symptom management, but it’s also with accessing the creative part of her brain that is a bit more difficult to use when she’s having a symptom fare up.
