I was fortunate to witness and photograph the charming rustic country wedding of dear Reeta and Pekka, when they got married on the 29.6.2013 in the fascinating old stone church in Karjalohja in Finland. Their amazing vintage-inspired yet modern-infused wedding at the countryside was truly mesmerizing in all its glory and all the wonderful little details. The wedding guests stayed at the local spa hotel called Päiväkumpu whereas the newlyweds had a gorgeous little place at Villa Taika for the night. The wedding venue Karjalohja community hall, which served the role of a wedding party location, was gorgeously light, tall and beautiful.
The couple, who had met at the famous ship races in Hanko (named Hangon Regatta) about 6 years ago, looked great in their dashing outfits and big, bright smiles. And for all of you wedding enthusiasts who are either eager to get married or looking for perfect wedding accessories, Reeta’s wedding dress was from VIP Juhlapuku and the flowers were from Ellan Kukka, which is located at Lohja.
It may not come as such a big surprise at this point when I say that the day was remarkable. From astonishing caterings to heartfelt speeches and performances, there must not have been anything that could have been better… honestly. Even the band, Loose Ties, was one of the best ones I have ever seen! Here are some words from the bride herself about the most magical day of her entire life:
“The wedding day was full of joy, happiness and touching moments. On my way to the church, I thought to myself that I need to enjoy every minute and try to make mental notes about all the wonderful details of the day. And I’m glad that I did, because the day was the most beautiful and happiest day of my life. I feel very blessed that our beloved family and dearest friends shared the wedding day with us. They made the warm and joyous feeling with their smiling faces, touching speeches and immemorial performances.”
Congratulations again Reeta and Pekka and thank you for a memorable day! I wish you all the best in terms of your future and hope to see little “Rekkas” running around in our feet as soon as possible. Much love!
