By Bike + Boat, Amsterdam Is Bursting With Charm

Whether by bike or boat, Amsterdam is full of undeniable charm and Audra Wrisley captured this couple entertaining both adorable modes of transportation – all in our Vault right this way! From holding onto each other atop a Dutch bicycle to sipping wine as they soaked up the sights, these two give a whole new meaning to blissfully in love.

From Audra Wrisley Photography… Andrea and her boyfriend of many years, Robbert, finished their studies in New York City a few years ago, and moved back to their native Amsterdam to work in the city’s vibrant advertising world. Amazingly these two still find time to also work on personal projects together, and they’ve traveled the country promoting an incredible documentary they released last year.

For their shoot we decided to start at one of their favorite coffee places, not far from the old city center. Afterwards, they hopped on their Dutch bicycle together to a small boat that we used to explore the Amsterdam’s incredible maze of canals. We navigated our way under many of the city’s countless bridges (apparently there are three times more than in Venice!), and captured this sweet couple together. Sunny afternoons in the Netherlands go hand in hand with a glass of rosé, and cheese platters are pretty much always mandatory, regardless of the weather.

It was a perfect afternoon with this beautiful happy couple, and we feel so lucky to have captured their love!

An Old World Inspiration Sesh You Need to See to Believe

Whether you’re planning an Old World-inspired celebration of your very own or just want to spend some time soaking in some of the prettiest details you will ever see, this sweet inspiration sesh is a MUST for your Monday. From the beautiful blooms from Meesterlijk Groen to the stunning castle setting, head to THE VAULT to soak in every gorgeous moment captured by the talented Audra Wrisley.

From Audra Wrisley Photography… Living in The Netherlands this summer, my husband Thijs and I were inspired to capture some of the old world flair of Europe with this wedding inspiration shoot at Kasteel Rosendael. Nestled in one of the smallest towns in Holland, Kasteel Rosendael is an incredible historic venue that finds its origin all the way back in the early 14th century. The castle’s stunning architecture, beautiful rose garden, and enchanting grounds were the perfect setting for our inspiration shoot. To make the vision come to life, we connected with Nailia from Best Day Ever Events, and with her help we put together an amazing team of vendors from all over the country.

Beginning the day in the tower room with it’s stately floor to ceiling windows, our bride stepped into her elegant Unielle Couture gown. Leaving the castle, she met her groom on the front steps of the castle, before making their way into the gorgeous rose garden. We continued our shoot at the backside of the fortress, which is backed by a large pond and next to it an intricate and completely unique gallery made up of seashells from the late 1700’s. This beautiful day ended with photos with an incredibly graceful classic Jaguar, as it whisked the couple away.

From Anouschka Rokebrand Photography… International weddings, they remain my absolute favorite! Lucy is half Dutch-half Irish, while Haakon is half Norwegian-half American. So you can imagine how international this wedding was!

Friends and family traveled from all over the globe to join them in Amsterdam for their amazing wedding day.

Lucy and Haakon met 10 years ago at University in Scotland and now call The Netherlands their home. Since they had so many people traveling from abroad, Amsterdam was the perfect place to host their wedding and they picked the beautiful Scheepvaartmuseum (maritime museum) as their venue. Since Haakon and his family work in shipping, this fitted them perfectly!

They both got ready at the lovely Hoxton hotel and we traveled to the museum by boat. Lucy wore a stunning soft blush pink Monique Lhuillier gown, paired with rose gold Jimmy Choos. So, so beautiful! The bridesmaids’ dresses were all different but matched perfectly with soft, nude hues and a bit of sparkle.

The ceremony set up was inside the museum in a light-filled room with a classic setup with white chairs. Meesterlijk Groen had created a gorgeous floral arch as a backdrop. The groom’s ring is an heirloom piece from the father of the bride.

After a lovely ceremony with speeches by loved ones, we took a few photos of the newly weds on the docks of the museum before dinner started.

The dining tables were styled beautifully with a gorgeous floral runner adorning the long tables, made of fresh flowers and eucalyptus and gorgeous stationery, designed by The Sparkle Company.
