December 3, 2012
DIY Inspired

The amount of style and creativity oozing from this Switzerland wedding has my heart beating overtime. The "industrial BBQ" soiree was branded with the cutest ampersand logo I ever did see and every single element was completely representative of the super chic-and totally adorable-bride and groom! If you're anything like me, your entire morning will be spent loving on the full gallery of images from Miguel Varona!

From the Bride... Even though we've lived in Zurich for three years, we decided to get married in Basel, where we both were born. We lived in Basel, which is a pretty small town, next to each other without meeting for about 25 years. He moved to Spain to study and met my friends from Basel, who were on an university exchange program in Spain. When I decided to visit them in sunny Alicante, we met and fell in love. Two years of long distance relationship followed, and in October 2009 he moved back to Switzerland. As both countries, Spain and Switzerland, were very important to us, we decided to have our civil wedding in Basel and the ceremony in Spain.

Usually civil weddings are quite small in Switzerland, but we decided to throw a big industrial BBQ party for all our friends. And as my husband is such a creative person, almost all decorations were made by us at home. He even created our logo with the three hearts representing our union, our families and love for each other. In Switzerland we decided to keep all decoration in blue tones, whereas in Spain we opted for orange hues. As we had guests from all over the world at our reception, we wanted all of them to see the most beautiful part of our hometown: the Rhine. We organized a boat tour on the Rhine before arriving at our venue right at the border between France and Germany. The wedding was designed to be an industrial wedding with many surprises for our guests: lots of cocktails, great BBQ, an awesome band that made the guests dance before dinner was even served and a casino. The atmosphere was simply amazing, and we danced until the break of dawn.
