I have absolutely no idea how to recap our wedding weekend since it holds SO MANY wonderful memories and we are left with gazillion pictures but I will try. So here goes part one of I don´t know how many 😉
We started Thursday morning in Bonn, going to Stuttgart with two cars full of stuff. While we drove down, 3 of our friends started backing sheet cake in Stuttgart already and my sister did the same but at home. I´m telling you it was a whole thing getting ready for this weekend and it takes a village.
It was glorious having that much yummy food but it was also kind of a lot 😀
I think we were like 11 people all doing stuff, preparing food, laughing and being so excited for this weekend to start. I wish I had more pictures of that evening. We ended up ordering Pizza and sitting on the floor sharing it and I felt so lucky in that moment to be surrounded by all these wonderful human beings!
One of the best things we did was order a at home manicure. We never did anything like it and were conviced it would cost a fortune but it didnt. We had the best time getting our nails done (while the boys continued cooking 😉 ), chatting and loving our time together!
We started Friday morning, still pretty sleepy and got things going. We didnt to pick up glasses we rented, prepare more food and most importantly fit everything, including us, into all the cars.
We had 5 cars and a trailer, 11 people and A TON of stuff and food. One car less and we would have been screwed.
We were playing tetris. I ended up pick 3 of the girls up at Birtes place where they stayed the night. Which made me drive in the opposite direction first before we were heading the same way everyone else was.
Things on that morning were not going according to plan so we were late to begin with and the four of us were the last car to leave. All 5 cars were texting to check in if there was any traffic and one by one everyone got stuck in traffic. And one by one everyone got through except us. The first car took 1,5 hours to get there – we took 3, 5 hours to get there.
Most of the time it looked like this.
We tried to make the most of it, ate some food we had in the car haha and cheered ourselve up that non of the guests would arrive early because they would be stuck in traffic too 😉
We pretty much arrived when the first guests were arriving too but all the other cars and people had arrived already and saved the day! It ended up all working out perfectly, it just took a minute to have everything sorted out. Luckily we are all used to working together and our circle of friends just knows how to get stuff done.
We finished off the day with supper with everyone, a speech by the priest and songs around a fire. More to come on that….
