The water was still, dark green and serene. Standing next to me was a big cup of hot coffee. Sitting next to me was the husband. After having gone to bed at 2 am, we got again at 7 am to do some morning sports (yes, crazy – I know) and no we were sitting at this breathtaking lake, on this late summer Sunday morning and I guess we were both still a little speechless about the weekend that was behind us. Bride and groom had let us be a part of their incredible celebration and we we were amazed by all of it. They wanted something truely unique for their wedding, so they booked one of the most remote venues I have ever driven to. It wasn’t even intended as a wedding venue, so they had everything they needed transported there.
So they ended up having one of the most elegant and sophisticated but also one of the most laid back (see the people jumping in the lake there? Yes, those are wedding guests) and warm hearted weddings I have ever been to. And on that Sunday, at the vast lake, with the morning coffee and the woods in front of us – we were very tired but also very happy we get to do this job.
