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.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s story when we bring you the big bash of the darling Jennifer and Adrian and their sweet church ceremony.

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!

Grey Wedding Ideas Great for the Beach

Gray goes great with just about anything, but especially the sweet sands of the beach if you’re considering a beach destination wedding.  The neutral tone won’t take away from your stunning setting and it can even shimmer like the ocean if you so choose.  We love the look of gray (and we’re pretty sure grooms will too!).
