Sabine and Jonathan’s wedding was the last wedding I shot before leaving for my own wedding just a couple days later! They currently live in Germany and planned their wedding from there. The couple had their ceremony at Stevens Chapel in Easthampton (which is located on the campus where the two met at their 10 year high school reunion) and included a mix between traditional German traditions and American traditions. Before their wedding, Sabine let me know that there would be “German games” being played in between the ceremony and the reception and when I asked what she meant by that, she couldn’t really describe it because it’s a surprise that the family puts on for the couple. You’ll see! Also, notice the little piggy following the couple around all day. His/her name is Hoshi and is a symbol for good luck. I love how the German’s dance, it’s all about the line dance! The DJ’s played German music all night long, and I have no idea why but when they played “Viva Colonia” the floor blew up! I have never seen so many different types of vodka provided by a venue before, that must have been a special request 🙂

Thank you Sabine and Jonathan for having me and giving me some really sweet last-minute wedding day advice. It *really* came in handy!
