It’s been awhile since we had a Real Wedding Saturday! Denise is a Snippet & Ink reader who was kind enough to share her totally DIY wedding with us, and she wrote such a darling little love story…

Once upon a time there was a boy from Munich and a girl from Barcelona. They both traveled far and wide looking for love, but little did they know that love had other plans for them. One unexpected day the boy came home to find the girl sitting in his living room. Meet my sister, said her brother. Meet my brother, said his sister. She smiled, he gulped, and so the spell was cast.

Matthias and I shared our love with our family and friends on a traditional Bavarian estate in Munich, Germany. We had a very personal ceremony in the tiny chapel situated on the grounds, where we asked for the blessing of our family and friends.

In true international style, the party kicked off with a Bavarian Beer Garden and was followed by English Afternoon Tea. Dinner was served in the barn where we later danced till our feet ached. We put all the love we could into every single little detail, crafting and designing and sewing practically everything ourselves. The most amazing thing was how our family and friends pitched in. From all corners of the globe, everyone added their own personal touch to make it even more special.

Congratulations Denise and Matthias!

    I second sarita’s love of that green petticoat! What a fantastic and original detail — I’ll keep this in mind for my wedding, whenever that happens. It’s a lovely way to add a cheeky, flirtatious pop of color.

    This is so cute! I wish I had thought of the German theme at my wedding! The only shout out to my heritage was the German sausages and that was about it. Great share :)

    Love the idea of ciutting a heart out of an old sheet and walking out through it. You could then use it in the photo booth to frame your guests. Simply but fab, like all the best ideas! xGeorgia
