Real Wedding: Alix + Manu’s Romantic Countryside Wedding

I’m super excited today to share the lovely wedding of Alix + Manu. You may know Alix better as The Cherry Blossom Girl. I love her blog and thrilled to be able to share some photos from her wedding here on Green Wedding Shoes. The wedding was photographed by the talented Marianne Taylor. Alix was sweet enough to share a few details into her day also, thanks Alix!

Our wedding was a kind of romantic / countryside / fairytale wedding…

My dress was made by Maria Lucia Hohan from my own design. The bridesmaids below right are also wearing gorgeous dresses by Marica Lucia Hohan.

I also loved to run with my husband through the dinner room, between all the tables holding balloons with the song, ” Build me up, buttercup”. All the guest were cheering and climbing on the chairs, holding sparklers.
