Melanie and Christian reside in Zurich, Germany, and planned a wedding at Maisenburg near their hometown. We don’t often get to feature European weddings, but we’re on the hunt for more because if they are as gorgeous as this wedding, well, we know you’ll love! Very special thanks to Nadia Meli Photography for sharing her work with us! We are so honored!
We did a lot of DIY projects: First of all the whole stationery, which we designed and handcrafted ourselves. For example, we made icons for each city our family and friends were coming from. My mom painted beautiful signs to guide the guests and a friend of mine tailored a wonderful garland, which decorated the ceremony and the entrance to the estate. And since I am a cake and sweets lover (which everyone knows about), the sweet table was a very personal thing, too.
Saying yes for the rest of our life to each other, of course! And dancing with all our family and friends on the dance floor – magnificent!
Tell us how you met and became engaged!
We met as far back as school, 14 years ago. We’ve been a couple ever since. We became engaged on our 13th anniversary during a vacation in Koh Samui, Thailand. Christian proposed to me after a romantic dinner in a restaurant on a cliff high above the sea. I didn’t need to think about it a second and said yes!
