Franzi and Dominik celebrated their civil ceremony at the Ermelerhaus in Berlin, which is such a gorgeous wedding venue. I absolutely adore Franzi’s super chic mini dress and lace cape from Rime Arodaky. Andreas and I also photographed their absolutely beautiful Bavarian barn wedding a few days later which I just can’t wait to share, stay tuned :)
I am thrilled to get the chance to share the work of a super talented team of vendors and felt honored to get to work with them all. We wanted to create a super chic wedding in the countryside, similar to the beautiful barn weddings we have back in California. We had so much fun organizing this shoot together and had a blast on our day of shooting. Our models, Josephin and Daniel were so sweet and just a joy to photograph. We found the perfect wedding location, Gartenglück Wegendorf, where we fell in love with the 300 year old tree in their courtyard and Hürriyet created a stunning floral garland under the tree’s canopy. Hazel was excited to debut her modeling skills alongside our adorable flower girl and ring bearer, although she was immediately fired after she tried to eat the peony collar we created for her. :( Stay tuned for part II and Andreas’ behind the scenes video in the coming weeks.

Alicia and Martin married on a gorgeous Saturday in May in a small village in Lower Saxony. Alicia planned the entire celebration on her own and created a magical Alice in Wonderland themed garden tea party reception in her Grandmother’s beautiful garden. After the ceremony, I think almost the entire population of the village were waiting outside the church to congratulate the newlyweds, which made my heart swell. It was a day filled with love and Andreas and I had so much fun photographing and filming the day together. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to watch the highlight video that Andreas filmed (click the HD button and watch on vimeo for best quality). Thank you again, Alicia and Martin, for entrusting us to document your wedding day, we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. <3
Anna and Florian’s wedding was a true celebration of joy and love. They married at Rathaus Schöneberg and celebrated until the wee hours of the morning at the beautiful lakeside location of Blumenfisch am Großen Wannsee. The weather here in Berlin in May can be a bit unpredictable, but this year it was the beginning of summer weather and the day of Anja and Florian’s wedding was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you again Anja and Florian for being so much fun to photograph (we got to sneak away for portraits three separate times, which was such a dream!) and for inviting me into your lives to document your wedding day!
Kristen and Ben married on a gorgeous spring day in London surrounded by their families. When Kristen and I first “met” over skype and she told me she would be wearing a polka-dot Vivienne Westwood dress, I knew we were a great fit. And seriously, how beautiful does she look in it?!? I have always been a big fan of brides wearing fabulous designer dresses rather than traditional bridal designs, and Kristen told me she was planning on wearing her dress to a wedding she was invited to a few weeks after her own wedding. (genius!) It was an honor and joy to be able to photograph their wedding day and the beautiful garden setting was a dream to take portraits in. Thank you again, Kristen and Ben for inviting me to London and trusting me to document your day.

Mimi and Peter’s Austrian wedding was the highlight of a week long ski trip in the Austrian Alps with their nearest and dearest who joined them from all over the world to celebrate. After being together for more than a decade, their wedding was extra special as their friends and families were already so close. It was such a fun blend of traditions, ending the day with a Chinese tea ceremony to honor Mimi’s heritage. The scenery was incredible and driving up to the ceremony location, which was literally in the middle of the alps, was breathtaking. I was blown away by how beautiful the backdrop to their ceremony was. If that wasn’t enough, after a day of unseasonably warm weather and sunshine, like magic, it started to snow the moment Mimi started to walk down the aisle. Thank you, Mimi and Peter, for inviting me to Austria to document your incredible wedding celebration. This tradition was one I had never seen before and everyone was laughing so hard. As Mimi married before her older brother, the couple had to walk under his pants when they left the chalet to get married. Wedding Venue: Unterhof Alm Filzmoos Wedding Planner: Panorama Tours
