Standesamt: Smile!

Between cocktails and lunch, we ventured from the shade on the upper terrace into the sun on the lower terrace at Goldschmidts Park to take group photos. My friends M&A acted as our photographers throughout the day and suggested taking photos with the garden and valley as the backdrop. Thanks again for the great photos!


The parents


Parents, siblings + spouses, and the next generation


With extended family


With our witnesses JK and BM K

And some photos take a bit more work. We had trouble fitting all of my friends into a group shot, so I suggested picking me up. Great idea in theory, slightly more complicated in reality.


1: Oh look, this worked! Yay!

2: Witness JK: “The wind is blowing up your skirt.”

3: Mr. B tries to tame skirt & almost drops me in the process.

4: Ha! We made it!


With all of my friends

I was so focused on getting all the required group shots that we forgot to take photos of just me and Mr. Bracelet. Luckily, we had also taken photos after our ceremony in the garden of our ceremony venue.

The only “formal” photo of the two of us is with our officiant:

But we have two funky photos:


“Posing” for the camera


Posing with “interesting” art work on display


We look good when we walk!

And a closeup of my hair. I couldn’t resist. Our hairdresser did such a lovely job.

    I love your dress for the Standesamt. So jealous that you had such warmer weather in May than we did in August! I was freezing in my short dress. 😛

    @ everyone: I’m just floored by y’all. Who knew you’d all love my dress so much?
    @Mrs. Funnel Cake: As you can see (in my outfit post), I planned for all contingencies – weather here being changeable as you know it can be.
