Sonja and Steffen's German barn wedding is fun, youthful, romantic and stylish.
Inspired by their favourite American wedding blogs, like Ruffled, the couple wanted to create a rustic wedding with a bohemian DIY feel, and boy did they.
Hay bales, white balloons, sweet blooms and chic signage made their beautiful wedding in Hofgut Maisenburg, in South West Germany, as personal as it was pretty.
Look out for Steffan's cool country groom style, Sonja's gorgeous boho look, and lots of hugs, kisses and beaming smiles.
Oh and pizza for cocktail hour? This is our kind of wedding!

Our Wedding Day
Our theme was an American inspired country wedding, with nude, rose, and natural colours and a bohemian, country chic style.
The ladies wore summer dresses in natural colours and the gents wore suspenders and bow ties.
Walking down the aisle to The Veronica's, ‘Speechless' was definitely my favourite moment. The other songs we used for the day were Ingrid Michaelson, ‘The Way I Am' and Auburn, ‘Perfect Two' during the ceremony. Ben Rector, ‘White Dress' for the recessional, and our first dance was James Morrisson, ‘Won’t Let You Go'
We made our own personal promises for our wedding vows.
At the reception we had beer barrels, wine, a Hugo cocktail, an Aperol Spritz cocktail, non-alcoholic Champagne and Jack Daniels and Coke as our signature drinks. We chose free seating at grouped tables.
As decor details we had pom poms, garlands, a hand-written blackboard, floating balloons, and homemade marmalade. We got lots of our decor Oh So Pretty Party Boutique.
We chose Angelika and Artur of Die Hochzeitsfotografen because of their natural work, love of detail, and because they're a young couple with the same feeling for beauty and style.
Doesn't it look fun? I'm pretty obsessed with Sonja's cool boho style (and my fiance Mark even spotted Steffan's denim and brown threads and asked me to pin them!)
Thanks so much to Angelika and Artur of Die Hochzeitsfotografen, and of course Sonja and Steffan for sharing their beautiful bohemian wedding with us. Happy Valentine's Day guys!
