We attended another church wedding last week. The brother of one of our youth cell members, who happened to work at Stephan's company for a while, got married to his sweetheart.
The weather was glorious! We had the first day of real sunshine after a whole week of rain. The church ceremony took place at a old church in Vaihingen and once again, I'm astounded by the beauty and majesty of the architecture here.
I have to admit though, attending weddings in Germany make me wonder if it would have been a good idea after all to have had a wedding in Germany. I guess we wouldn't have been able to afford it after all, but oh boy! The photos that one could have taken in the wedding dress! Hah, now you know how superficial I am....
Here's wishing you, Benny & Bekka all of God's manifold blessings, love and joy to hold both of you together through the mountains, valleys, storms and rainbows of life. May you realize that you two are the best gifts God could have given to each of you, as you experience adventure together.
The church had superb acoustics. They had a choir and a live orchestra playing the wedding march as well as other songs.
That's the orchestra that played behind the church. Look at the huge organ! Just like in the movies!
Beautiful floral decoration. :)After the church, we had some photo-taking with "camping" props. That's my friends, Kerstin, Geli and her hubby Hansi in the photo.
Close-up of the newly-weds!
This was where we had the dinner! In a Castle! So idyllic right?
My self-made present for the newly weds. Chocs, money and a card tastefully wrapped up in clear foil, with a heart-shaped baking form as a base and some hearts to top it off. In Germany, one doesn't just give money in a red packet, one presents the money in some artistic fashion so that it looks like a real present!
Finally some close-up shots of the couple! B&B - Benny and Bekka
