Vintage birdcage wedding in coral, baby blue and mint
The wedding weekend started with a pre-wedding party on Friday at the Riessersee Hotels Biergarten. Everyone gathered round eight in the evening for Bavarian snacks and pretzels, a draft Paulaner beer and music by a zither player. It was a casual meet and greet in an relaxed atmosphere.

Back from church the bar opened on the lake terrace at Riessersee. Tables with vintage flower arrangements in coral, baby blue and mint invited to take a seat and relax in the shadow of the marquee on this hot summer day.
A coffee and tea bar with samowar, welcome drinks - Aperol Sprizz and Hugo - in summerly mason jars, finger food like pretzels, "Fleischpflanzerl" (mini meat balls), Canapées, potato salad, "Obazda" (marinated Camembert cheese), pretzels and sweet pastry were offered.
Meanwhile, the Seehaus restaurant was decorated for the wedding dinner. Tables were layed with cream table cloth and cloth napkins.The center pieces were white vintage birdcages filled with flower arrangements in coral, baby blue and mint: common peonies, hydrangeas, berries, lisianthus flowers and grasses. Added were the wooden table numbers which were bought by the bride and send over to the hotel in the months before the wedding.
Vintage items like Hessian table runners with lace, carved wood hearts, old books, keys and pillar candles completed the decoration. Even the seating plan was a bird cage and each table got a name from am place with a special meaning for couple on vintage cards. I loved this very much because Bamberg, the town where the couple got engaged, is my fathers home town and the Altenburg is one of my favourite places in the world.

Now, we watched it in details, let´s have a final look:
The cutting of the cake took place after the dinner. Made by the Kroenner bakery in Garmisch-Partenkirchen a mint green bird cage wedding cake with baby blue and coral flowers and a wooden "Just married" cake topper which was brought from the couple and added to the cake.
Next afternoon it was "time to say goodbye" and I really have to say it was hard. I had so much fun during the long planning time and I will really miss the facebook chats. I hope we will be in touch and say "thank you" for an really amazing wedding :).
