after scouting for photo-locations and the bachelor party, the day of my sister’s wedding finally arrived. unfortunately the sky was covered with a a gray sheet of blah, but at lest the temperature was ok and there was no wind or rain.
first thing in the morning we drove up to the castle and took the wedding portraits. this is one of the 3 kinds that we did.
a custom in our village: the groom has to “buy out” the bride from the local youth and prove his “suitability” for her by drinking a number of alcoholic beverages.
now because berni decided to drive up to the castle himself he only had to drink very, very light spritzers.
the newlyweds with their son. also best-man and bride of honor.
ballons at the reception and fun-frame portraits for everyone. those portraits were later added to the guestbook.
dinner opening speech.
cutting the wedding (cupcake-)cake. those cupcakes were delicious!
berni receives an unexpected kiss from a friend.
another custom: the bride gets kidnapped by her friends and they go to the nearest bar and the groom has to search for her, consuming a glass of schnaps at every place he searches.
now because we were in a castle and around us was nothing, the bride was led to another room and the husband searched for her in the yard.
while bernie swept for money some thought it would be fun to take his shoes.
