See The Pretty Details Of Demi Leigh Nel-Peters & Tim Tebow's South African Wedding!
Everything about the ceremony was pure perfection
From the moment Demi Leigh Nel-Peters first met Tim Tebow two years ago at a charitable event, she knew he was The One for her.
Everything about them was compatible to a tee; their faith, family values, commitment to personal and professional growth, and respect for tradition sparked an instant connection and even more meaningfully, deepen a bond that would eventually lead to a romantic marriage proposal from the former football player a year after their meet-cute.
Naturally, it was a "Yes!" for the Miss Universe titleholder who felt that she had finally found the perfect life partner in Tim.
The pair tied the knot on January 20, Monday, in Cape Town, South Africa in a beautiful ceremony that moved many of their guests to tears and joyful applause. We're sharing all the pretty details of their special day below!
Demi and and Tim became husband and wife at La Paris Estate, a choice of couples that favor elegant outdoor weddings. Both ceremonies and after-parties are held here and for good reason; the venue overlooks Franschhoek's hillsides and wine valleys for an extra dose of romance. Overall, the estate paired perfectly with their color scheme of white, green, gold, and black!
An estimate of 260 friends and family attended the event.
The pre-wedding party
It was a beautiful showcase of South African culture and hospitality that wowed this couple's guests who came from all over the world. Music, food, and other South African traditions were highlighted at this event, bringing smiles to everyone there to experience it.

Demi glowed in a timeless, custom white dress by David's Bridal that she co-designed. According to her, her favorite parts about it were its elegant off-shoulder neckline and fit-and-flare silhouette; it was exactly the kind of look she was hoping to achieve. Though the dress was kept neat and fuss-free, Demi accessorized with a cathedral-length tulle veil glammed up with a sequin border and a low, sleek bun plus nude, luminous makeup. Demi's bridesmaids were outfitted in matching dresses by the same designer, too!
On the other hand, her party outfit brought out a totally different personality; the dove gray column dress was much more playful and modern with its sequins, plunging neckline, and backless cut.
Tim wasn't outshone, though. He was likewise just as dashing in a black, three-piece suit by Gert-Johan Coetzee for the big day.

After months of planning, Tim and Demi-Leigh Tebow's intimate sunset ceremony went off without a hitch — and many of the people in attendance fought back tears during the heartfelt ceremony. 💍 Tap the bio link for all the details on the couple's "perfect" wedding. ✨ | 📷: @hanrihumanweddings
And in case you've forgotten, Tim proposed to Demi with a magnificent 7.25-carat solitaire-cut ring. Wearing it proudly on her wedding day, it definitely became the perfect piece of jewelry for Demi's wedding look and went well with her choice of simple pearl earrings for the day. Tim also had a little something extra to spruce up his suit: a crest boasting his family crest pinned on his jacket lapel.
Grooms and brides can't possibly choose just one or two moments they loved the most about their wedding day, but according to Tim, he was looking forward to three specific points in their ceremony and reception: the first time he sees Demi in her wedding dress, their first kiss, and their first dance.
Because Demi is South African and Tim is American, they wanted to fuse cuisines to create a menu that would help their guests appreciate their multi-cultural backgrounds. Reportedly, some of the dinner's highlights included steaks, pastas, and seafood, as well as a delicious assortment of cheeses.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
