Much to my husband’s dismay, click flicks are kind of my favorite thing ever. Pretty Woman, Titanic, Dirty Dancing, you name it. They’re all total classics in my book. So when this movie-themed Sweden wedding came our way my heart did a little leap for joy. (Because when a Top Gun movie poster acts in place of a traditional table number, you know it’s going to be awesome.) Add in the gorgeous photos from Alicia Swedenborg and it’s a gallery that’s really not to be missed. Grab yourself some theater-style popcorn and peruse away right here.
From the Bride…Björn and I met at a job meeting in January 2009. He worked as a consultant on a project where I was the one who had ordered the project. From the beginning, we thus colleagues and we did not fully agree from the start. But the more we worked together, the more we both felt that there was an attraction that we could not ignore (which of course took time because we did not want to admit it to each other). In May, we started dating and we moved in together that summer – so it was that we used to say that our beginning was like a love story.
Since both Björn and I love the movie and it also felt like we had met in a movie so it was natural theme obviously love movies. That went through everything, from the style of us (Hollywood glamor) to the invitations that were designed as a movie invitation to all the music that was film music from our favorite movies. Even our seating arrangements were made for our favorite love movies and the band that played had the same name as one of our favorite characters (Dirk Diggler in the film Boogie Nights). And not to forget – we served popcorn in the church which was then used as rice outside.
We had great luck with our entire wedding weekend (guests arrived on Friday and stayed until Sunday), in that we had fantastic weather in an otherwise very rainy spring and summer. The day was fantastic – my best memory is from when my grandfather went to the Bear and thumbed him that we would be married as long as he and his grandmother (who that year had been married for 60 years).
