The pretzel. The beer. The wedding. The dancing. The castles.
I do a lot of traveling for this wonderful job of mine, but what may have been the best location this summer was Germany. You may remember Sabrina & Ruben from last year when we did an engagement session here in Massachusetts while they were studying abroad. I’ve never known a couple so full of JOY and laughter and it was such an amazing weekend hanging out with these two lovebirds. One look at their families and I could see just where they get their zeal for life.
This wedding was the church wedding (in Germany you have two: State and Church) and the afterparty was not to be missed. We heard speeches, saw skits, heard songs and watched home movies until the dancing started around midnight. I called it a night (thanks to jetlag) around 3a.m. but the dance floor was still going strong.
At one point, someone asked me, “Is this what American weddings are like?”
“Not exactly. We’d all go home around nine or ten.”
“In the morning??”
“The next night?”
“No…the same one.”
I’ll forever be grateful for the hospitality, liveliness, patience and amazing ability that all Germans have to know more lyrics to Backstreet Boys than I do.
