Raise Your Glass Because this German Wedding is Worth Toasting

Thanks to an Oktoberfest adventure while studying abroad, I tend to associate Germany (specifically Munich) with lederhosen and steins of beer. But with this summer wedding, I can now associate the country with lots of pretty. Yes, there’s lederhosen and beer, but there’s also a beautiful ceremony and sunset portraits in a wheat field. See it all from Michael And Carina Photography in The Vault!

From Michael And Carina PhotographyElke and Max are high school sweethearts. Their wedding took place in the middle of summer in the German countryside near Munich. They said their vows in a historic airy town hall with high vaulted ceilings and subtle gold tones. We spent the sunset running across wheat fields. When the sun had set, everyone celebrated the night away in a historic German Inn, with good food and beer – of course!

The Ultimate “Bucket List” Anniversary Celebration in Munich

There’s a saying I’ve heard recently that I find to be SO true. Want to hear it? Falling in love is all about the little moments, and Bo and Sydney? Well, they’ve got a whole lot of it. Celebrating their anniversary in style, this sweet pair jet set off to Munich to mark this dreamy destination off their bucket list and can we just say – #anniversarygoals? See in The Vault!

From Michael and Carina Photogrpahy… Bo and Sydney fulfilled one of their bucket list wishes by traveling to Germany for their anniversary. We spend the morning discovering the little side streets of Munich, a majestic city with beautiful architecture and pastel colors.
We walked around the main part of the city, but hardly anyone was there this early. We had the city all to ourselves and enjoyed getting lost in its history. Sydney’s flowy dress fit the color scheme beautifully.

From Ashley Ludaescher… This wedding, planned and styled by Doreen Winking, was such a fun wedding to photograph. The weekend started with a Bavarian style barbecue at Lake Starnberg, where all the guests wore traditional Bavarian Tracht outfits. The relaxed evening was the perfect way to start the weekend and the adorable pretzels in the shape of the couple’s initials were such a cute touch! The wedding itself was held in two of Munich’s most beautiful venues, the St. Georg Church and the Prinzregententheater in the heart of the city. Both perfectly reflected the sophisticated chic and romantic style of our sweet couple.

After the ceremony, the couple and their guests rode rickshaws from the church across town to the reception venue, which was a fun laughter-filled ride. Doreen used a white and pastel color palette and brought in special touches from the groom’s home country of Ecuador, with Ecuadorian chocolate served after dinner, embroidered napkins with the couple’s initials from Ecuador and Ecuadorian roses in the arrangements.

Romantic Munich Sunrise Wedding Inspiration

I just may be printing out every single one of these pics by Michael and Carina Photography; they’re so captivating, I want to put them up in my office (and my bedroom… and my living room) to continue to soak up their simple yet stunning beauty. Munich is downright magical in these early morning sneak peeks and this gallery just got bookmarked for many more future visits.

From Michael and Carina Photography… For the first time I am sending you a shoot from my hometown. Munich, Germany is one of those places that just leaves you speechless. Its architecture is stunning and its old, yet modern feel, is unique. I am excited to share this inspirational shoot in the center of Munich with you and hope you fall in love with the images and the city just the same.

When the sun rises over a city with this much history, character and beauty, and all the streets are still empty, something magical happens. As the marble of Munich’s architecture reflects on two lovers, it is quiet in a city that usually bustles with people. The two are walking past Odeonsplatz, to the Hofgarten, where magical gazebos and towering arches lend themselves as beautiful frames. Soft colors and intricate textures in both materials, florals, colors and architecture are at the center of this inspirational shoot in Germany. Dreamy and minimalistic.
