    Benjamin and I met when we were 15 years old, through a mutual friend. We were friends for a long time, and it was complicated and awkward until our friend announced that we obviously loved each other and would make a great couple. We've been inseparable ever since.

    Benjamin and I are both from Germany, and since our families still live there, we decided to get married in a little art village near our hometown, Bremen. Planning a destination wedding was quite a challenge, but we had great help from our parents. We pictured a laid-back wedding with just our closest friends and family (we ended up having around 70 guests), and Tuscan-inspired decor with a warm feeling — rustic, yet elegant.

    We will never forget our wedding day; it was truly one of the best and happiest in our lives so far.
