Netherlands wedding: Rianne + Sander

It feels like it’d be a simple idea to have a small, 23 guest wedding like Rianne + Sander did, but the truth is that not all of us can. They’re so fun to look at though, aren’t they? Your closest friends & family sitting around one family style table in the middle of an aged farmhouse, the chef within view plating your dinner, and everyone’s able to toast one another in cheer. Sounds lovely. With touches of coral, peach, and mint on the historical grounds of a working vineyard, photographer Melissa Milis captured their day beautifully and with such a deep romantic mood.

The most simplest bridal bouquet made of gypsophila we may have ever seen, and we love how it matches with her flower crown.

At first we really wanted to get married in France since we met there and we just love it there. But then we found out about this venue and totally fell in love with it. It is a piece of France on the Dutch and Belgium boarder and it is so lovely! We knew immediately that we wanted to celebrate our love for each other on this special place and looking back on our day it was the best decision ever. The weather was perfect, the food was lovely and everybody loved it. It was perfect!

That last photo is incredible - very ominous! Look the photo in amongst the wheat sheaves as well.

Absolutely beautiful wedding. It's just proof that you can make a small DIY wedding as beautiful as the extravagant 500+ guests, weddings. The first detail that caught my eye is the Happily Ever After sign, such a cute detail to just start of this very, very cute blog post. The bridal outfit is very unique. The floral headpiece really connects the simple bouquet into the outfit and makes it a lot more elegant. The dress is simple yet it has a few details like the form fitting bodice that gives it a sexy feel, while the long flowy skirt shows elegance and gentleness. I have to say right away kudos to the photographer! The pictures are absolutely stunning and some of the moments Melissa caught are really touching. One of my favorites has to be (correct me if I am wrong) I believe that is the mother and the bride looking at each other at the reception. And of course the shots of the couple are just beautiful. Congratulations to the happy couple and kudos to the vendors as well as 100layercake for the post! Katarina I. Weddingful - Plan a Fabulous Wedding
