Mikaela & Patrik – Wedding on Kökar, Åland – vol. 1

weddings

[intro]If you don’t have a sailboat or a friend that owns one, it takes the better part of 2 days to get to Kökar from Estonia. It’s a 2,5h ferry ride away from the Finnish mainland, same from the main islands of Åland.[/intro]
But it was totally worth it. If you are looking for cliff-lined vistas and hidden beaches, this is the place.

This is part 1 of the story of Mikaela & Patrik. The island is where Patrik spent his childhood. So it was a day with people close to them, in a place close to them.

The getting-ready was not what you would see in a busy hotel room. More like 2 close-by family homes filled with chit-chat, laughter and a touch of nervousness where Patrik got ready 😉

Jenni & Toni – wedding at Långvik
We spent a lång weekend (pun intended) this August with a couple that has an awesome army of friends, the greatest of families, and frightening sets of back muscles. What made us remember the day (besides the tear-jerking speeches and the gorgeous couple) was the way Jenni made sure the evening was genuinely about celebration and relationships. Having had a good look at the worn-out printed schedule I grab from the camera bag, I ask her "There's no tossing of the bouquet?" She replies, with a slight confident smile - "Nope, no weddingy stuff!" I notice myself raising my eyebrows, but in a moment realize this is exactly how it should be. ...
