Zurich, Switzerland Wedding Ceremony + Reception

zurich destination wedding

Today we’ve got part two of Lindsay and Adrian’s beautiful wedding in Switzerland!  Yesterday, we shared with you their civil ceremony with a stunning yellow wedding dress and now we’re getting a peek into the big day they shared with more friends and family, complete with a church ceremony.

The church wedding took place in a small local spot built in 1510 in Kandersteg, Switzerland, a tiny village high up in the Swiss Alps!

The bride opted for a second short lace wedding dress (that we love!!), but this time in white.

It may have rained on their wedding day but that didn’t stop the celebration and is sure to bring them good luck!

After their Catholic ceremony, the group poured into the pouring the streets for some fun photos and to get the party underway!

For décor at the reception, the couple actually used different fabrics throughout that they had gathered during their engagement to use to decorate the tables and walls.

But this was a group celebration so Lindsay and Adrian asked their guests to each contribute too – with a piece of art that they each created, writing postcards of love to the couple, which lit up the reception space with personal touches.

This two-day wedding was quite the adventure for the bride and groom, through the Alps and rain, and despite the weather, an amazing time was had by all!

Wedding in Switzerland with a Yellow Wedding Dress!

Lindsay and Adrian said I do outside of Zurich, Switzerland in an intimate civil ceremony with close family to bear witness. In Switzerland a civil ceremony is actually required before you can have another wedding so this couple broke up the festivities into two different days of celebration!

Their civil ceremony took place in an old castle in a town called Greifensee, just across the lake from where Adrian had grown up.

How fabulous is the bride’s yellow lace wedding dress!?!  We love!

It was in the Landvogtstube room (that even had the bride’s last name in it) that the ceremony took place while the larger group gathered in the courtyard to cheer the newlyweds on once they exited the building.

It was then off to a brunch celebration, after which the group boarded a coach bus and headed to the Alps for a grand wedding the following day.

Greece Wedding Inspiration

Dreaming of marrying the love of your life with the inspiration of Greece? It has the perfect touch of romance for a wedding day or an option for an unfortgettable destination wedding in the homeland. Incorporate the country colors with gorgeous blue wedding shoes to go along with your white wedding dress. Adding olive branches and flowers along the buildings of your venue can give it a special touch for a wedding inspired by Greece. Also, if you’re doing a destination wedding there is nothing more special than being surrounded by the beautiful white buildings that are unique to the lands of Greece. Instead of the traditional corsages and boutonnieres consider using lavander to give your wedding party an authentic touch. A beloved tradition for celebration in Greece is to break plates! For your reception set up a stand for your guest to start the party with the breaking of plates. To enhance the beauty of your wedding cake, add olive branches for a simple but beautiful look that brings greek inspiration. Have your flower girls wear a headband with flowers native to Greece, along with lavender and olive branches to tie in the beauty of greek culture. You won’t regret celebrating your big day with the unforgettable details that the greek culture has to offer!
