Happy Monday! We have such a sweet wedding to share with you today, filled with some of the prettiest details imaginable. Suzanne + Erwin had a small, intimate family wedding in the countryside of Belgium and the photos by Alice Mahran truly are dream! The fact that S + E are creatives themselves helped them pull off such a stylish, magical affair. Suzanne tells us, Through our work as a photographer and videographer, we have seen so many weddings. Surely, this has been our biggest source of inspiration. We chose the best of all the weddings we’ve ever seen and added it together in a way it suited us. We were surrounded by so many talented people. We felt so blessed!
The fun part is that we wrote our vows the night before. We planned to do it earlier, but we were so busy the weeks before our wedding! We wrote it from our hearts and I designed special little books for these vows. I had tears in my eyes when Erwin read his promise during the ceremony. A heartfelt experience.
We had to put Suzanne + Erwin’s STUNNING fine art wedding film by Velare right here for you guys so you didn’t miss it. If you are considering videography for your day, or just feel like being practically moved to tears by the beauty, we highly encourage you to check it out!
The first look was definitely the highlight for both of us, but the whole week in the Ardennes was almost equally incredible. From swimming to relaxing in the sauna, a lovely night before with fun acts from friends and family, exploring the surroundings, big dinners and wine tastings, good talks at the campfire and just lots of love and laughter. This made the wedding day even more relaxed and fun since everyone already knew each other!
Suzanne walked down the aisle to Eyes Wide Open by Tony Anderson.
Plan your party over several days and give some nice holiday experience to all of your favorites people. It’s perfect.
And even though we have a lot of experience. If you want to organize a good party, it really takes A LOT of time. But keep in mind it is all worth it. It was one of the best experiences in our lives so far.
