Real Pretty Pear Brides

{Real Plus Size Wedding} Red, White and Blue Wedding in Germany | Pink Pixel Photography

It’s 4th of July and I just knew this gorgeous wedding from Germany was perfect to share today. I have never been to Germany but from the looks of this patriotic themed wedding, I NEEEED to take a trip. I have heard about somewhere like small wedding venues edinburgh when I heard about how beautiful the place is, but when Germany came up, I had to take the trip. All the details are perfect from the stunning wedding gown to the super cute details and touches at the ceremony and wedding. And I must add that I never thought that balloons could look so great and used exactly right. Pink Pixel Photography hit a grand slam with this one for sure! And don’t forget to check out the amazing video of the day after the images, get your tissues ready because even though it’s in german the tears will flow from emotions.

How did the two of you meet? A mutual friend introduced us to each other.

Describe your engagement {in less than 40 words}: We both love to go hunting. On a rainy sunday in the hunting ground, the bride was observing a deer and suddenly she spotted an engagement ring in front of her field glasses.

Our favorite detail of the wedding was: The ceremony at church, our pastor did it all so well. It was very emotional.

The most unique element of the day: Our marriage vow and the bridal bouquet.

Your advice for other plus size brides: Find a place where you are able to try on a lot of different plus-size-wedding-dresses. This variety shows you the perfect fit for your body-type. And very important: Let your heart decide – when you have the first-mirror-look and you need to fight back your tears – that’s your wedding dress! And always remeber: Effort your beauty standards.

Three adjectives that describe the day: charming, colorful, emotional

What has surprised you most during the first few months of marriage? That it is a really nice and wonderful feeling to call each other “my husband“ and “my wife“.

Your first dance song: “Once upon a December“ from the 20th-Century-Fox-Studio movie “Anastasia“

The thing that we would have done differently is? Looking back, we should have even more enjoyed every single moment to the full. The day passed by so fast and we always had the feeling that we needed to be the perfect entertainers, but that isn’t important.

Describe your wedding cake: 5 tiers: chocolate, lemon, nut-marzipan, strawberry, raspberry – decoration: only blue flowers

Describe any unique aspects of the beverages you served: For the reception a close friend who is a bartender designed our personal rhubarb-wedding-cocktail. We served a lot of great italian and german white and red wines, also alcohol-free-ones.

If we could have spend our wedding dollars differently, we would have: We would have had a very personal and small wedding on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean. 🙂
