Mikaela & Patrik – Wedding on Kökar, Åland – vol. 2

weddings

We spent quite some time getting to Kökar, as mentioned in the previous post, and saw the Åland archipelago and its magnificence from a number of angles and Kökar stood out.
It is one big pile of naked gray rock – no beach, bits of forest – but a lot of emotions.
First, the winds that welcome you by blowing from different angles. Then the vistas – one seascape following another, not to mention the tiny little red boathouses that take you right back to childhood and Astrid Lindgren’s story about Tjorven who lived on the island of Saltkråkan. But the biggest emotion was by far the one we received from the warm and fun-loving people of the island, Mikaela and Patrik, their friends and families.

Pavel & Jekaterina – the doxielovers at Kõltsu Manor
Pavel and Jekaterina are the type of couple you meet in the park on peaceful Sunday afternoons, walking their adorable doxies Kljopotchka and Palmotchka. They are modest, even shy at times, but when you get to know them, you’ll see that they are passionate about the things they love - food, science, travelling… and their dogs, of course! We were lucky enough to meet them in September and shoot their energetic doxie engagement session. But the most wonderful part for us was by far their special day at one of Estonia’s most ah-so-amazing manors, Kõltsu. As the mint-themed day unfolded before us, we got to know their wonderful friends and fam ...

Sille & Henri – wedding at Leigo
If I had to name the friendliest person from my usual daily corporate IT office environment, Sille is probably the one. If anyone manages to mess up, she's like "It's gonna be OK!". That kind of we're-here-to-celebrate-your-love attitude is what we felt that evening. But make no mistake, they didn't leave anything to chance ;) I mean Henri was all over the place alongside the decorator with the cordless drill like no one's business. Thank you guys for having us there for you!

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. ...
