Hello, hello, hello!
I am so very very married!
Last saturday David and I had our wedding and it was the most magical day ever. We had planned for it to be a relaxed and joyful day without stress and rules. And that was exactly what it was! And so much better than we could have ever imagined.
It was a sunny day, but the clouds were dangerously dark around the time for the ceremony. No reason for worry, though. All those clouds just made for dramatic skies in the photographs and the day kept on in a sunny fashion.
I OF COURSE had my iPhone with me and so I documented parts of the preparations. Some of those photos you will see here but many of these are taken by our friends and their smartphones. I've edited most of them with the VSCOCam app (Love it!) except for some of them that's edited by the person who took the photo.
We had a few friends take pictures with fancy cameras too and you will get to see them too but for now: hope you enjoy a little peek at our wedding day.
David and Lotta. August 24 2013.
The day started with preparations. Inger, a dear friend of my family, helped with the table decorations.
Yes, it's a green house. Yes, this is where the dinner and party was held. Lovely, isn't it?
My mother was in charge of the flowers. We had picked them along the roads close to where we have our house in Rörum. Wild flowers and straws and some roses from our garden.

I walked up to the place of the ceremony to wipe off spider webs and bird poop from the chairs that we had brought there the day before. It was such a weird and lovely feeling to be up there all alone only a few hours before the wedding ceremony. I stood there for a few minutes and looked at the view and tried to imagine what it would feel like when it was happening four hours later. I felt such a calm and excited feeling and skipped down the hill to do the last of the preparations in the green house before it was time for me to be dolled up by my friend Johanna.

And here we are! Our friends and family had gathered in our garden for drinks and snacks and we had time to walk around and say hi to everybody before it was time to march together up the hill.

David and I took the longer way because my dress prevented me from climbing the wooden stairs over the fence. Our guests looked like lemmings in the distance.

All of our guests made it to the top!

Here we are, soon on top of the hill!
And this is how you carry a very large tulle dress when walking up a hill surrounded by sheep poo.

We met up with Else-Beth who was going to marry us.

And then it was time to start.

I couldn't keep from crying. It was just too emotional standing there, at that beautiful place with all our favourite people around us, hand in hand with my David.

And then we exchanged pocket watches. We didn't exchange any rings because we are happy with our wooden engagement rings. Instead we had bought antique pocket watches and engraved them in the back (You will see more of them in another post).
This was such a lovely moment, filled with joy. And both of us managed to lock the chains around each other's necks without any problems!
This photo was taken by Johanna with our polaroid camera.
And then it was photographed by me, with my iPhone. Super meta, haha!
And David gets his pocket watch too.
This and the following two photos was taken by David's friend Fredrik.
And we're married!
I love these photos so much! It looks like we're standing in a painting and that is exactly how it feels up there.
After the ceremony we made mojitos for everybody and people sat down on blankets to enjoy the view and the company. And I was back to taking photos again, haha!
This is Ida, Christian, Aili and Jonas. Lovely people! Aili and Jonas were our wedding witnesses, by the way.
Joel, Olle and Maja looking good in the sunshine.
Don't know who took this photo since it was from my sister's phone.
My sister and niece Hilda.
Same goes for this photo...
Me, my sister and nephew Alfred. And my husband (!) lurking around in the background.

Then it was time to walk down the hill again. David and I took the longer way again and I had a bag of ice over my shoulder. Lots of skirt to carry!

We took photos of all our guests with the polaroid camera. And one of us too, of course.

In the green house before dinner!
Johanna made my hair and makeup. The flower crown is made by me and the dress was made by the amazing Jennie Lööf.
Photo by Marie Mandelmann, who made this amazing kanelbulle cake!
This is our wedding cake.
An enormous Kanelbulle (cinnamon bun) as a tribute to my all time favourite movie Äppelkriget that was filmed in this very part of Sweden and where a car motor magically turns into a giant cinnamon bun...

The bride gets to break the cake!

And the night came and lots of colourful lamps and candles lit up the beautiful greenhouse.
We ate the most amazing food you could ever imagine, all made of food from the farm we were on.
We danced to our favourite music mixed with some hits from the early 1990's since David and I was a couple then for the first time.
It was the most amazing day and night and we couldn't be happier.
This will be with us for a very long time.

Now we are husband and wife. YAAY!
