Summer came and went away once again – how does this always happen? We’ve been spending so much time in our editing cave that we haven’t been able to blog. We were supposed to start blogging last month but sometimes the days go by so fast that you don’t even notice it. Just like what happened with summer. But today we’re starting with this lovely wedding that took place in Ikaalinen this July.
It’s safe to say that when it comes to weddings, we’re always saying that make them look like you. If you don’t feel comfortable, there’s no point in having the wedding – because you can always get married without a wedding. So if you don’t feel like putting on a suit or a white dress, don’t do that. Put on your jeans or some other dress. Make the wedding look like you. Sonja & Thomas organized a wedding that looked like them. From the handmade decorations to the location choice. They got married on Sonja’s family farm where people from all around the world came together to celebrate their wedding. Sonja is from Finland and Thomas from Barbados and this wedding truly was a lovely gathering and made with the help of their family and friends. We traveled to Ikaalinen a day before the wedding and got to spend a lovely evening with Thomas’ family on a cottage by the lake. It felt like we were greeted by friends and like we were part of it all. It wasn’t a surprise; ever since the first email we got from Thomas’ mom, it felt like this was meant to be.
We’re grateful we got to be a part of this gathering filled with lovely people, cats and cozy atmosphere. <3
