Wedding Bells (West) - - Real Weddings - Ed­i­tor KIM­BERLY AGLI­PAY

from sEan: I pro­posed to Kerstin on a trip to the Do­mini­can Repub­lic. We were in a lit­tle gar­den on the is­land, sur­rounded by fish and birds, and I thought it was the per­fect mo­ment. We wanted the wed­ding to have a rus­tic look with el­e­gant touches. Gold, ivory and cham­pagne colours com­ple­mented the rus­tic wood decor. Kerstin knew we had to have pe­onies at the wed­ding, as homage to her grandma, who had passed. We wanted Gran to be present on our wed­ding day through her favourite flow­ers. Kerstin’s mother spent hours per­fect­ing the beau­ti­ful ar­range­ments. A spe­cial de­tail from the wed­ding day was the cupcake stands.I made them my­self us­ing pieces of wood; they were such unique items that fit the rus­tic theme per­fectly. Mak­ing them also added a per­sonal touch to the wed­ding. We were so glad to hold the cer­e­mony on the golf course. The venue was ab­so­lutely stun­ning and it al­lowed us to en­joy the amaz­ing weather. We also took some great pho­tos on the prop­erty. When I saw Kerstin walk­ing down the aisle to­ward me, I was speech­less. That is def­i­nitely a mo­ment I’ll never for­get!
