It had been raining for the last few days throughout Bavaria and as I walked to the window and wiped my eyes from sleep, the early morning light showed a clear sky. “Thank goodness,” I thought. It was wedding day for Ralf and Anne, and none of us wanted to deal with the stereotypical unpredictable summer weather in Germany that day.
So…. I a little background for you…. I originally met Ralf in Canada when Betsy and I photographed our dear friends Jon and Gabriella’s Wedding in 2010. I met Anne in 2012 when Christopher and I were in Germany photographing Jasmin and Mike’s wedding. Flash forward to this summer, I had the opportunity once more to travel to Germany to photograph Ralf and Anne’s special day! And what a day it was! The weather held off, everything went without a hitch, and Ralf and Anne got to celebrate their love with all of their friends and family.
There’s really not much I can say about these two, except that I love them with my WHOLE HEART. I had a BLAST as your photographer and I felt so special to have been asked to document your wedding day. You were a dream to photograph and your sweet love made my heart SO happy! Here is how the day went…..
The lovely flowers were done by the ever so talented Melanie Müller! Aren’t they so pretty? Loved this shot of the men trying to figure out the Boutonnière situation….
While I was with Anne, Christopher snagged this shot of Ralf. I love it so much!Another great shot from Christopher…. that guy is MONEY.Aw…. former groom/bestie Mike and Christopher.The traditional Keg opening by the groom…. messy business. Good thing he had that cute apron on!
To everyone who helped to make Ralf and Anne’s Wedding so wonderful, thank you. The love and dedication to these two was so apparent and was such a great example community at its finest. And to Ralf and Anne, may your marriage shine brightly the love Christ has for His church. May you always choose to pursue one another with fire and romance….. and may we meet again real soon (might I suggest somewhere tropical with a beach?). Love you more than you know and thank you for letting Christopher and I be a part of your day.
