- Wedding: June 2016
My husband and I got married at the end of June and it was an absolutely wonderful day! We were lucky to have amazing weather and to be surrounded by friends and family, some that traveled halfway across the world to celebrate with us. We just got back some of the photos from the day and they really captured the emotions perfectly. If anyone is looking for a photographer in Belgium, I could really recommend ours.
The wedding took place in Ghent, Belgium, which is where my Belgian husband and I (an American) live. The ceremony venue was an old defense castle in the center of the city, and the reception/party took place right across the street at a really great venue on the water. It was a really amazing day – full of laughter and love. There were a couple of minor hiccups (and one bigger one that I’m trying not to dwell on), but in the end we both had a lot of fun. It was definitely the special day we were hoping for.
Here are some of my favorite shots:

Our first look at this gorgeous bridge that overlooks the city center – best view of the city:
Our bridal party! Great people:

After the ceremony we had a short reception in the courtyard of the castle while my husband and I took a few extra photos:
Then we moved to the reception venue for cocktail hour and snacks by the river (luckily this was right across the street, so wasn’t a far trek):
Then is was time for the dinner and party!
Our head table had our parents, my brother and my husband’s aunt and uncle. We wanted to let the groomsmen and bidesmaids sit with their significant others, so this was the easiest option.
Some details of the day: the flower centerpieces doubled as favors – they were handmade by women artisans in Nepal and purchased through an organisation that supports women artisans around the world. We also had little photos at each guests’ seat that was from a favorite memory we had with them. And a photo booth, which was a big hit!
Massive post, but it was really an amazing day and I wanted to share a bit of it with you all 🙂
