This is our first wedding (and posting) after the rebranding and we are totally thrilled to kick the new blog off with a wonderful destination wedding in Croatia.
We have had itchy feed since we arrived in Marina last Friday because we knew this is going to be a very special wedding. Let us clarify this first: we do not compare weddings at all, simply because every single one is different and we love it the way every couple fulfills its dream. But we simply LOVE Croatia and we have spent dozens of summer vacations in this beautiful country. So when Steffi and Alex contacted us at the first place for photographing their special day we where so honored and excited and both of us saw the photos already flickering in our minds.We started the trip Thursday midnight from Munich and drove all the way down to Marina (10,5h). We stopped once for a little morning nap but we rather wanted to get to the beach as fast as possible to catch up with sleep listening to sea water.
Friday evening we used the chance to scout the location and talk to the couple about details. We almost freaked out while shooting during the evening hours. The light was stunning and the best thing about all that was, we kinda knew it’s going to be the exact light the next day too.
After a nice dinner with some of the wedding guests we fell in our bed right after that.
Starting a wedding day with a bath in the sea could not be better, could it? We both more than once said to each other, how much we love to be there and how much we appreciate the situation in our lives.
It was hot, really hot that day! But we love it! At 2pm wonderful and extremely emotional wedding day started with the getting ready. As usual, Carmen was with the bride. And this time it wasn’t a hotel room but the family own boat. Fantastic!
Ingo met with the guys in the tower and nothing better that having a getting ready with all the men doing stupid things. We had a blast.
Highlight from the day was the appearance of Steffi. Her father in law drover the boat into the “Harbor of Love”, while Steffi stood in the front part of the boat waving and throwing kisses.
The guests and sure Alex loved that moment and you bet that both of us had goose bumps all over our bodies! What a moment!
After a wonderful and touching ceremony, we headed out for the couple shoots right a way. Steffi and Alex are photographers themselves and thus pictures are extremely important for them. That’s a photogs dream isn’t it? We had plenty of time for the shooting and the light and location were just perfect.
The reception at the tower was just phenomenal and the food extremely delicious. A very cool party started after the freaky wedding dance Steffi and Alex were performing. We saw that already once at a wedding and again it was so much fun and the guests all loved it.
At this point, we would like to thank Steffi and Alex for having us as their photographers. It was indeed one of our favorite weddings so far and we wish you all the best. Sure we meet again very soon. Enjoy your honey moon!
Love from Munich
Carmen and Ingo
