Lake-side wedding in the Bavarian mountains

It was a gorgeous summer morning in May, the mountains of Garmisch-Partenkirchen still a little bit snowy, clear blue sky and deep green forests around lake Riessersee. Perfect conditions for a wedding ceremony on the mountain meadow.

For the colour scheme shades of raspberry with apricot and white were chosen, the flowers should be a mixture from roses, peonies, lily, ranunculus and greenery, natural but elegant with a touch spring. The bridal bouquet as well as bridesmaids bouquets were delivered to the wedding venue Riessersee Hotel in the morning by the Passiflori flower shop, as well as the boutonniere for the groom.

The mountain meadow above the Riessersee lake house was prepared for the ceremony with a girland and vases for the wooden flower arch, benches with white covers, a white carpet and hanging flower glasses with ribbons along the aisle. The panorama view was just stunning on this wonderful summer day in May - it was breath-taking even for us and we see it nearly every day.

During the ceremony we brought the favor bags, filled with some nice things from the region like chocolate, Bavarian mustard, pretzels and historic picture post cards from Garmisch-Partenkirchen, to the hotel rooms.

Meanwhile the Riessersee lake house with its fantastic view to the mountains of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Bavaria, Germany, was prepared for the wedding dinner. Little pictures frames, made by the couple, showed the guests as escort cards the way to their table. The menus (Kartenmacherei) showed again the chalk board theme.

Ginger bread hearts from the Kroenner bakery in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in soft pink - according to the berry colour scheme - were placed on each table as another welcome gift. The name of bride and groom and the wedding date were written on the hearts.
