oh wow, i just had to share the wedding that photographer Hanni of Troistudios shared in the comments of yesterday’s plants post! Romy & Raphael got married at the Botanical Gardens in Berlin – what a perfect setting for such an intimate ceremony. they also had brunch and a reception at two different locations afterwards, an idea i love that’s quite typical of many german weddings. probably the best wedding i have ever attended was my own brother’s wedding whose wife is german – the celebrations also consisted of several different events spread over a few days. and man, do those germans know how to party.
since i seem to be on a wedding trip today, i thought it might be cool to share some pics from the wedding of Jackie & JFK in September 1953, which was taken by Life photographer Lisa Larsen. there were 600 guests, they had 14 ushers and 10 bridesmaids and they ate pineapple salad at their reception.
Kristen Marie Tourtillotte is a wedding photographer based in Seattle who got in touch with me recently to share the wedding of Michelle & Ryan, who got hitched at home amongst their friends, family and pets. i loooooooooove this. everything about it is what i love about small weddings – intimate & personal, mimosas & pies, dancing in the backyard… not to mention Kristen’s beautiful photography. i could barely pick my favourites, be sure to check out the entire wedding.
i really like the idea of Love vs. Design where you can choose templates for your wedding stationery, personalise them and then have them printed yourself (or get them to print for you). this obviously isn’t a new concept, but the fact is that there are some really nice designs to choose from – so it’s a pretty cool option for people who are on a budget and don’t have the luxury of hiring a designer to whip up their wedding invitations.
so i told you last week that my pals Jessica & Luke were getting married over the weekend. i was a bridesmaid along with Jessica’s twin sister Debra, and also one of the many unofficial official photographers. i’m really happy with how these photos came out – and even happier that i could capture some special moments from the day.
i wish more wedding photography was like this. simple, no props, no stunts, no bells and whistles – just capturing a real moment. photograph by courtney brooke.
