First it snowed. Thick, heavy flakes coming down like leaves from a tree, covering the world outside my window in white. And that got me a little excited. After all, for a winter wedding what more can you ask for than snow? But then it rained. Just as heavily as the snow and it washed away all traces of white. The temperatures stayed as cold as it had been for days and it couldn’t have been any more awful outside. Luckily Bey Bey and Cornelius didn’t care about what it was like outside and instead made sure it was warm and toasty inside.
These two got married on a Friday in December in a civil office in Hamburg and celebrated this on a Saturday with all of their friends and families. When I say “all” I do mean all – it was an incredible amount of people who showed up. The effort and pure joy that went into this wedding was quite incredible too. From the amazing Astrid who did a wonderful job with Bey Bey’s hair and make-up, tasty food and excellent service from the team of Sagebiels, heart-warming speeches by both fathers and gut-busting-with-laughter “entertainment” by best man Kai and numerous friends to beautiful flowers by Saxifraga. Plus! A strawberry cake in December.
Watching two families being united by a couple in love is something I will never tire of. In the end it doesn’t matter what happens outside – it’s the inside that counts.
