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.

We could not help but still get caught a bit in the "best of" buzz. Cause these are like carved in stone in our minds. Queen of the world Sometimes it just so happens that in the middle of taking formal groupshots of family and friends you notice a fierce and confident bride, eyes sparkling and the veil moving like magic. All it took was 4-5 clicks of the shutter. Just a fleeting moment, filled with confidence and feeling gorgeous inside, as well as outside. Karo The truth is that all you need to do to get a good (read: truthful) portrait of somebody is to try and imagine what she is feeling at every given moment. Here is Karo, ...

Sille & Arvo – wedding at Viljandi Fort Ruins & Vanaõue
How come it (almost) always rains during your wedding morning and clears up by noon? This is how it happened this time as well. The pinch of nervousness was absolutely in both of them when getting ready. Usually it's the bride, but this time it was Arvo who was on his toes all the time. We did a few portraits before the ceremony and he was sure we had been there for 20 minutes while we were 5 minutes in. But it turned into a happy kind of excitement with every minute we got closer to the ceremony and all seemed to go well after all. This was one of the weddings you remember by the small emotional moments happening throughout the day. The ...

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