A Sun-drenched South African Safari Ceremony

A safari adventure has slowly been making its way to the top of my dream vacation list for a few years now. If it's on your list, too, maybe you should take a cue from Terri-Ann and Berchaun. This sweet NYC-based couple decided to take their dream safari and turn it into an incredibly intimate first wedding and honeymoon. Two weeks later, they flew to their new home of Nashville, Tenn. to celebrate a 'vow-renewal' and reception with family and friends.

Isn't a two-continent/two-part wedding such a great idea? Enjoy the images below and click here and here for a peek at the couple's gorgeous celebration in Nashville!


From photographers Sven and Karen Musica of Phonix Capture:
“We arrived at Singita, and what a stunning, wonderful place (Singita Game Reserves, South Africa)- it really has a wonderful atmosphere."




“The ceremony took place at a confluence of two rivers, with a stunning atmosphere, Hippos ten meters away and Fish Eagle calling nearby, all setting the mood. After the ceremony we took a 30 minute drive to a lookout point where Terri-Ann and Berchaun cut the cake, drank champagne and had their couples photo session. It was a spectacular atmosphere!!! The views over the park were incredible. As the sun was setting in the valley below, two elephants were moving about. This was Africa!"


How seriously cool is this? I am really smitten with the fact that Terri-Ann chose chic-yet-practical sandals to wear with a trench coat - LOVE that! I must say, her dress is gorgeous, too! And Berchaun's seersucker suit with RayBans is too killer. Congratulations, you two!

From Terri-Ann:
What was unique about your wedding?
Rather than having an average wedding with all of our respective families and friends present, we wanted to start our journey together as husband and wife in an extraordinary way. We decided that the best way to do that would be to combine our wedding ceremony and honeymoon. So we traveled 7,000 miles to one of the world’s most beautiful destinations to exchange our vows in a private ceremony and spent two weeks enjoying our surroundings and each others company. When we returned from our honeymoon, we felt it was important to have an equally extraordinary celebration with our families.

What were the highlights of the reception at Cedarwood in Nashville?
Renewing our vows after about two weeks of marriage! Seeing everyone having such a good time during the cocktail reception despite the hot and balmy conditions. The fairytale-like atmosphere highlighted by spectacular floral arrangements, delicious food and friendly service.

What was the best thing about the way you structured your wedding?
We were able to splurge on our honeymoon. We were also able to afford better flowers and food for our guests.
