Whimsical German Wedding
A blush pink BHLDN wedding gown, German countryside, and a couple so darling they nearly make your cheeks sore from smiling — today’s wedding, captured by Lea Bremicker, has all of that and more. With flowers from Lilly Deluxe and a true labor of love DIY effort from the bride and groom, this wedding has tons to share – so let’s jump in!
From the bride, Nina: We wanted our wedding to be a fun, relaxed and intimate vintage farmhouse wedding. We were happy for our wedding to be a little different, just as the location was. We found this beautiful little mill/farmhouse on the countryside close to the border of Germany and the Netherlands (I’m from Germany + Alex is from the Netherlands), which was absolutely unique and when we saw it we knew we had found the perfect place for our German-Dutch wedding.
For the decoration everything was colorful, handmade and mixed together. We wanted to incorporate vintage and unique elements and really wanted to do a lot of things by ourselves to express who we are and what we like. Also it was important for us not to cover the uniqueness of the farmhouse. The little hearts for our guests to find their seat, the garlands, the table decoration, everything was made by us. For months we collected a lot of mason jars to fill them with flowers or candles. We even designed and created our own invitations. It was fun doing this together and made us look forward to our special day.
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? From the beginning, you have a certain idea of how everything should be. For us it always was important that the whole day feels like us. We wanted to spend a great day with our family and friends. During the preparation and at the end of the day you will notice that not everything will turn out as planned but for us it didn’t matter and everything came together even more beautifully than we have imagined it. Our advice is just to celebrate the day just as the two of you would want it to be, enjoy every moment as it is and have a lot of fun.
