When we wrote our goals for this year at the end of December, we never, in a million years, thought we would be photographing our first destination wedding in 2015. But with some luck(thank you, Chris!) we booked our first one at the start of the year for this July. We were truly surprised and excited and we simply couldn’t wait for the first weekend of July. Well, it was one of the hottest weekends of the summer and we were melting in the Bavarian countryside! Lindsey is from USA and Alex is from Germany and they actually met while working in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The decided to have an intimate wedding with their closest family and friends in the Bavarian countryside. We loved how they decided on wildflowers as their wedding flowers because they perfectly matched the location. Lindsey did all of the stationery herself, since she is a graphic designer, and also she did all the centerpieces and also the ceremony backdrop. We love brides that put so much time into their weddings! The day started with both of them getting ready and after that we did a really beautiful first look. We took some portraits around the beautiful woods and after that they hid on the other side of the backdrop to wait for their guests. They didn’t want to have a traditional walk down the aisle, so they decided to come to the front of the aisle when all of the guests were there. Their ring bearer went around the guests and hand them a colorful string on which the rings were passing from guests to guests and each of the guests had to make a wish for the bride and groom before passing the ring to the next guest. We really loved this part! We also have to say that this was one of the most emotional and personal ceremonies we ever had the chance to photograph. It was so beautiful! After the ceremony there was cocktail hour and a really delicious dinner! The day ended with fun games, such as cornhole and jenga, and sparklers since it was 4th of July. To sum it all up, it truly was an amazing day and we feel honored to be able to document it! Lindsey and Alex, thank you so much for trusting us and letting us be a part of your intimate day!
