Dalarö Skans Wedding // Elizabeth + David

Stockholm Wedding Photos

I’m looking outside my window and I see rain and heavy wind hitting the trees in the forest where I live. It’s 10 in the morning and the sun has barely risen. I’ve been working for two days on this blog post. Now feels like a good time to share this magical wedding at Dalarö Skans, an old fortress on a little island in the middle of Stockholm archipelago. Back then, it was spring. Life was everywhere. It was not all grey and clouds like it is now. The color palette was vibrant greens and blues. Birds were happy and the sun was shining. One thing we had in common, then and now: the wind.

He is an airline pilot. She is a flight attendant. It started the way it started for so many of us. They were both in other relationships, they were good friends. Eventually, the old relationships dissolved and they realized they were more than just friends. They were meant to be.

Birds hovering the boats, blue skies, the smell of the ocean. The ceremony was held inside the old defense tower. After they got properly married, the reception started in the Glass House. The archipelago, the islands, the water, the sun, the birds, the boats. Magical. After dinner, a photobooth, an open bar, a party in what looked like a cave or a bunker. This was one wedding for the books!
