It’s always exciting when couples refashion kitschy-like wedding references into a one heck of a gorgeous fete. This couple used solely red roses and petals throughout their day, including a massive of bed of heart-shaped scattered rose petals for their ceremony. Such a great budget-friendly idea! Gary and Jessica married in a backyard setting, with photographer Rensche Mari in tow to capture their wedding day. Their reception was held at La Cucina di Ciro, a beautiful outdoor space in Johannesburg.
