This Freiburg Germany Wedding was so unreal it felt like we were in a fairytale at times. Katherine and Christoph had their wedding in Freiburg Germany near Christoph’s hometown. It was our first time to the Black Forest region and it was stunning to be a Freiburg Germany Wedding Photographer even if only for a day!
Their Freiburg Germany Wedding reception was held at Henslerhof Venue, just a couple miles outside of town. If you have never been or visited the Black Forest region here are some reasons from Lonely Planet to give you a little push.
We had the chance to photograph Katherine and Christophs’s wedding in Hong Kong Last November and felt even more lucky that we had the chance to photograph their Germany Wedding too! We hope you enjoy looking through the images of their wedding in Black Forest Germany.
Being the architect/engineer couple, we first met at The Empire State Building in New York City on a late summer Friday evening over happy hour drinks at the Beer Brewery. It was definitely not “love at first sight” but through many emails, texts, weekend brunches and over more beer, we slowly got to know each other and started our relationship. Our first few dates consisted of visiting buildings on Yale’s campus in New Haven and a color photography exhibition at The Whitney Museum because I found out that Christoph was part colorblind. To me that was very interesting and I wanted to know which spectrum of colors he could not see clearly. Throughout the past six years, we have had many challenges that have brought us closer together and made our relationship stronger. After years of long distance from: New york – Uzbekistan, New York – Stuttgart, New York – Hong Kong, we somehow managed to make it through and hope that our experiences will help us as we embark on the next chapter of our lives together.
After 5 years, Christoph planned a wonderful proposal in his hometown of Buchenbach. The day after his God-Mother’s Golden Wedding anniversary celebrations, he dragged me on a morning run up the hill to the Kreuzbergkappelle, a little church overlooking his tiny hometown. We sat on the steps of the church for a break to catch our breaths and to take in the stunning view. What was just a morning run turned into one of the most memorable moments of our lives. After a prayer together for our families on the steps of the church, we sat down at a little bench in the garden. We are not quite clear what happened next anymore, but we found ourselves in tears (or more accurately just me) while Christoph was down on one knee. Just like that, we were engaged!
