After much talk with our families, we are so happy to share that we will be married under an Acacia tree in the African sun on March 31, 2012!
Our parents – Kit Kucera (Charleston, South Carolina), Bob Kucera (Durham, North Carolina) and John & Margaret MacDonald (Durban) – will meet for the first time at our wedding in Graham’s hometown of Durban, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.
Sarah’s brother, Joshua (Charleston, SC), and Graham’s brother, Keith and his wife Angela and son Evan (Durban), will also join us for our wedding.
Getting to know each other’s family, meeting old friends and making new friends has been nothing short of amazing the past five years. Living so far away from both our families has made our friends our family a lot of the time and now we are lucky enough to be living near one half of our families in Charleston, South Carolina.
From first hand, we totally understand that it will be near impossible for the majority of our family and friends overseas to come to South Africa for the wedding, but we can’t imagine not giving you the option of being included in our day! If that’s the case for you, there’s absolutely no need to explain.
The wedding will entail one or two days in Durban, KZN (March 30th – evening get together and March 31st – wedding day) and we have put together some bits and pieces about SA on here to help you make up your mind, and plan any activities or trips that you like.
Think about it and please do tell us when you think you realistically know so we can make plans for the wedding too.
Feel free to email us as much as you like with any questions, we’d love to help! (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) And Margaret has kindly put her hand up too to help with any local planning which is so awesome/
Hope to see you in South Africa or Charleston, SC soon – our doors are always open!
Thanks for your support, we are so excited to be making it official!!

PS – the time of year (March/ April) is the end of summer going into autumn, but feels like spring time in South Africa – not the peak of high season, but not off-peak either. The date of the wedding (March 31st) is one week before Easter 2012, hopefully allowing some time off
PPS – Some have asked if will we do something in America? … we’ll try to come up with something and let you know – we’d love to. just not sure what or when or where!
