Vintage birdcage wedding in coral, baby blue and mint

At the wedding venue Riessersee Hotel Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, we often have weddings from abroad, Norway, Switzerland, Austria, Russia, USA and Great Britain. This time the home country of the couple was Ireland, the Emerald Isle. During the long planning time the couple came a few times to Garmisch, to have a trial at the hair dresser Salon Setzer in Grainau, test the wedding menu at the Riessersee lake house and meet the priest at the church in Grainau. But most of the time we chatted on Facebook, evaluated ideas, sent pictures and links to Pinterest. All the planning war really fun and the bride bought a lot of decoration items and sent it to me over months - and I was excited about opening each parcel and find new, cute surprises. And then it was there, the wedding weekend. And I will try to report about it in English and I apologize for my grammar and my mistakes because English is not my mother language. But I will try my best!

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.

Next morning the brother of the bride picked the flowers and the ring dish at Riessersee Hotels reception, bridal bouquet and boutonniere in the wedding colours coral, baby blue and mint. The florist, Passiflori Blumen Penzberg, chose European peonies, hydrangeas, succulents, berries and grasses for the bouquet.

The "getting ready" took place at the hair dresser saloon Setzer in nearby Grainau and then at the Ferienhaus Waxenstein in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the residence of the couple and family for the wedding week. A VIP-shuttle collected the bridal party there, bride and groom went to the church with an Oldtimer from Merry Old England, Barry Caselton, and all the other guests were picked by a bus from Omnibus Biersack and brought to the church and back. No need for anyone to find the way, search for a parking lot and get stressed. All arrived save and in time at the catholic church Johannes der Täufer in Grainau where wedding planner assistant Franziska waited with the flowers for the bridesmaids and boutonniers for the groomsmen. The church was decorated in the morning by Passiflori Blumen Penzberg, again in the wedding colours coral, baby blue and mint, completed with babies breath and Hessian lace bows which were ordered by the bride and given to Passiflori to add it.

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.

On the head table mint green bows were added to the white chair covers and the room was even decorated with some pompoms in the weddings colour scheme mint, baby blue and coral. 

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.

Then the wedding party moved to the Riessersee Bar where we had meanwhile built up a candy bar and a photobooth and the band began to play. Dancing, drinking, having fun - that was the program for the rest of the night! 

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 :).
