So, on the chance that you don’t follow us on Instagram (here & here) or Facebook, you may not have seen all of our Euro-spam last month. For those of you who did follow along, sorry we’re not sorry, as we were just a teensy bit excited to be shooting our first wedding in Europe. We’ve lived & traveled through Europe a lot, so it’s always been a dream of ours to go for work. Sarah & Ale made our dreams come true. We were pinching ourselves throughout their entire wedding day.

Sarah is Brazilian. Ale is Italian. They met in Denmark. Soon after they moved to Norway – Tromsø, in the very tip, top of Norway to be exact. Sarah & Ale are the kind of people you just want to be around. The wedding took place in an open field overlooking the foothills of the Italian Alps. This part of Italy is made up of hundreds of tiny towns connected by winding mountain roads. It’s definitely Italy, but the German-Swiss influence can’t be missed. It’s a beautiful blend of cultures and an incredibly charming part of Italy. In true Italian form, there was a vintage vespa, free-flowing wine & limoncello, and once evening arrived, customary games played by the bride & groom. We loved being a part of a real Italian wedding – it was such an incredible experience.

To Sarah & Ale, we have to publicly thank you for believing in us and our work. Thank you for letting us join you in Italy and for your unending kindness and generosity.

Sarah & Ale have two cats, Nutella & Mr. Pudding, who had to stay home in Norway understandably. Sarah found a way to bring them to Italy. 🙂

iceland roadtripP I NOn day 5 of our Iceland roadtrip, we visited Jokulsarlon, the glacier lagoon. It was just plain magical (and very very cold). The lagoon itself is so peacefully quiet you could hear a pin drop. Giant chunks of ice floating steadily down the lagoon, making their way out to sea. I remember the wind wiping through the lagoon so strong that it cut through my down jacket with ease. It was totally worth it though. We couldn’t resist walking out on to a few of the bigger icebergs. Toward the end of our visit at the lagoon, we saw a guy hoping from iceberg to iceberg when it broke and he fell into the freezing cold water up his knees. Yikes! We also walked across the street to the black sand beach where you can see the icebergs meeting their destiny.

The next day, we hiked to Skaftafell. I think it was the first time we had sweat on our bodies the entire trip. We reveled in actually being hot for a few hours, even while surrounded by snow. 😉

Check out that intense blizzard in the distance! Just from looking at the photos from the lagoon alone, you can see the weather change from gloomy, to sunshine, to looming snowstorm, back to sun again. You crazy, Iceland.

This poor tour bus got stuck on the beach and we found it kind of hilarious. You think they’d know better?

eureka lodge weddingP I N

Anne & Michael hosted their wedding in a remote ghost town nestled deep in the San Juan Mountains – the venue was a historic miner’s inn, now known as Eureka Lodge. The setting made you feel like you’d traveled back in time, transported into those old black & white photographs of western miners in the 1800s. Michael grew up visiting Southern Colorado often with his family. As a pair, Anne & Michael, have traveled the world, yet they’ve always had a fondness for Colorado. We too, have a deep love for the tall pines and sweeping mountain ranges that cover this incredible state and count our blessings each and every time we get to return – for work or play. 😉

Anne & Michael are quite possibly two of the most laid-back people we’ve ever met. They are also two of the most adventurous people we’ve ever met. We feel like we pretty much lucked out on getting connected with them. These guys were up for anything – willing to cross any stream, climb any mountain and walk along the cliffs edge while we followed them around with our cameras. This entire day was straight out of a dream.  One of our favorite details? The seating chart! I feel like I’m always going on and on about cool seating charts, but really, it’s such a fun way to get creative and interactive with the guests. Each table displayed a postcard of a different national park and the guests found their seat by the wooden US map which charted out the location of each park. Pretty cool, huh? And perfect for this outdoor-loving couple. All of the details & decor came together beautifully thanks to the extremely talented Mandy of Celebrations.

We love this “in-between” shot of Anne & Michael hiking through the woods. Anne traded in her cute wedges for chacos and was happy as a clam. These two are truly in their element here and we were so very happy to oblige.
