Eva and Kaddie decided on a casual… 2-DAY WEDDING, WOO HOO!!! Both days were memorable, a rainy day followed by a bright sun-shinny day. Their days also included portraits at the port, 2 ceremonies, an alp-horn duo, killer reception dancefloor action at a foundry (tin-melting factory) and many lols!

{DAY 1}

Civil Ceremony

The first day was a casual day “get the legalities out of the way” kinda day. So off they went to the courthouse to make their marriage legit, yay!

Queue congratulatory cheer… and the back story of Eva + Kaddie.

About Eva + Kaddie

“We’ve known each other since 2009 when we briefly met at a national sports tournament in Frankfurt. Eva was playing for Team Hamburg, I [Kaddie] was playing for Dresden. I moved to Hamburg around 1.5 years later. We met on very rare occasions until we coincidentally met again in late 2013 at a friends party. It did not take very long until we started dating a couple weeks later.”

The Proposal

“We’ve had dinner at a special regional place and went for a walk afterwards at the Alster lake which offers a great view on the lit-up city. When we reached the place with the best view, enjoying the moon shine and the silence, Kaddie proposed.”

{DAY 2}

Their attire

Kaddie: “Skirts and dresses have never been my thing. I knew I wanted to feel comfortable and special at the same time – I knew very early that I was going to wear a suit. Adding even more comfort, Eva and I both knew we were wearing sneakers.”

Eva: “Skirts and dresses have never been my thing, too. But at the same time, I don’t like to wear suits. So from the beginning I knew that I would like to wear something white. My final choice: lovely and comfortable tailor-made skirt, corsage and top. All white.”

Church Ceremony + Reception

The skies really did open up for wedding day number 2.

“At the church wedding they had everything from a great church, to portraits in a carpark, even to alp-horns at the party. Yeah, right, fucking alp-horns in North Germany. And even better, above their seats at the reception, they had a sign which said in German: ‘get it on’.”

A little kudos for their photographer

“He fit right in. He was really like a friend joining us on the day rather than our photographer.” There’s something in saying that a photographer who feels like part of your squad is a great choice for your wedding day. Amirite???

Planning tips for the readers:

“Plan what makes YOU the most comfortable not what anyone would expect from you. Go with your gut feeling: If the decision about something feels right to you, it most certainly is. If you feel lost at any point: Delegate tasks to your maid of honor/best man, it’s part of their ‘job’.”

Eva and Kaddie did their wedding their way. Big, BIG congratulations on your wedding and beautiful married life together. RUMMACHEN!

Fun facts: I'm a "loud" little Latin gurl. I heart my label maker as much as I do my partner. I also like red things, leg-day and red velvet everything. My daily vocab includes "have you eaten?", "I love you" and "I farted"... not all at once or in that order. If I'm not talking to you about feelings I'd be helping you organise something.
