- Wedding: September 2017
First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone on Bee, you are so lovely with comments, ideas and attitudes. I had the best wedding planning because of you guys.
We got married in September at a barn venue 1,5 hour away from Stockholm. We had a DIY wedding, I feel so sorry for my husband who had to put up with every crazy idea I got from magazines and pinterest. Even though we had access to the venue 2 days before the actual wedding day we were really stressed and didnt even have time to put everything up, lesson learned. Despite that all that we had such an amazing day. I feel so incredibly grateful that so many guests came from both USA and Ireland to celebrate with us and of course everybody who travelled within sweden as well.
We had around 100 guests plus children (we have 2 of our own). We hired buses for the guests to the church, venue and to the hotel at night and that was appreciated.
The ceremony took place at a church nearby and magical wouldnt even be close describing that amazing feeling of being so loved and to able to love. After the ceremony we arrived at the venue, while our guests mingled with starbucks coffee (huge fan) and we served jars of youghurt with berries and our lovely band started to play we had our photoshoot. Our photographer was so talanted and captured every moment that night and his pictures are truly a work of art.
Straight after we had a sit down meal and for those of you who are in the process of thinking to discard the toasts… DONT! That was one of the best parts of the whole day, we had lovely speeches and my mother in law chocked and cracked all us up with a song about us.
The cake was so delicious, it consisted of different brownies, cupcakes, berries and flowers arranged as a pixi heart. Everybody raved about it.
Then we had our first dance and the band played it so beautifully even though we looked as we came straight from the first prom lol. After that the party started and the floor was packed all night, I had to beg my daughter to stop dancing at 2 am so we could leave and go to bed.
As everybody keep saying, dont mind the small details that doesnt go your way, you will have a beautiful day looking back at. Looking at your partner and all the people you cherish and love is a feeling that truly makes you feel so blessed.
Sorry for huuuuuuge pictures and loads of them..hope you all are connected to WIFI 😉
