Real Wedding: Veronique & Daniel

Sean Flanigan is one of the most talented photographers out there, and today I get to share his work with you! Veronique and Daniel flew Sean all the way to Luxembourg to capture their special day. Says the bride, “All of our friends and families helped make the day special. Daniel’s bandmates played music all day long, my friends helped with the flowers and decorations, plus it was my grandmothers’s 90th birthday!”

The bride got ready at her parents’ home. She wore a vintage dress and carried a bouquet made of vintage brooches collected from around the world. The groom wore a suit by Hugo Boss.

What’s with the goat? Says Veronique: In Luxembourg, when the bride or groom has older siblings who aren’t married yet, the sibling receives a goat at the end of the ceremony as a place-holder for a wife or a husband. This old tradition says that they have to carry the goat all day long.

Don’t you love these rainy day photos? And that awesome car? (It’s a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air, in case you were wondering.)

Veronique and her grandmother made quince jelly the week before the wedding, for guests to take home as favors.

Congratulations VĂ©ro and Danny! And thank you to Sean Flanigan for the gorgeous photos! See lots more from this wedding over on his blog, right here.


  • This is wonderful! I’m an expat living in Luxembourg, so I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw today’s featured wedding was from my adopted country.

    I LOVE this blog, and have enjoyed following it for the past couple of years – keep up the good work :)

  • the first word that comes to mind for me is CHARMING. such a charming wedding. someone once told me that charm is what we have when we’re not paying attention to ourselves. that’s what this bride and groom seem like- kind, carefree, life-loving people. and their wedding is just a big mirror reflecting those qualities. is it just me or do international weddings- especially european ones- have extra amounts of charm??? :)

  • really cute wedding! i love the brooch bouquet. i’m an american photographer in ireland and i love to see that european weddings are getting featured on the US blogs.
    it looks like this wedding was shot in a film a bit too. cool!

  • This goat is beyond fabulous. The church is exquisite. The bride and groom look like they walked straight out of an old movie.

  • Myriam says:

    It was very very nice and I hope that you will never forget this day. Everthing was soo nice and marvellous.
    Bid kisses Myriam :-)
