Elegant Seaside Rehearsal Dinner

Joanna and Tobias thought about where they wanted to say their vows for several months following their engagement, and after a vacation through Gotland, Sweden they were instantly enamored. From the moment they chose Gotland, they began starting their journey planning a destination wedding- all while moving, changing careers, and pursuing their studies. Tobias told us that despite all of the challenges they ran into while planning their Swedish wedding, it was all worth it.  They didn’t have as hard of a time choosing a photographer, 2 Brides was an obvious choice for them!

Once their wedding weekend finally arrived, they were nervous their outdoor rehearsal dinner on the coast would be rained out since it had been pouring down the days before.  But come Friday morning the sun came in over Visby and stayed all weekend, providing the couple and their guests with beautiful sunsets and a warm summer feeling.

Delicate Outdoor Boudoir Ideas

When thinking of a boudoir shoot, one might overlook nature as a source of inspiration. Most boudoir shoots are often done in the privacy of a home, but an inspiring alternative could be a nearby creek or a small patch of untrodden woodland. Places similar to these can provide a sense of seclusion and intimacy. Here, we shot a boudoir where the quiet sounds of running water and slowly swaying trees served as the perfect backdrop for an intimate session.
