Birgit & Tino’s wedding was one of my last for 2014 and what a great way to end a season!
How sweet and romantic was that?! Shortly after, they came out to Landshut to meet up and I knew right away it was going to be a great wedding..not only are they a beautiful couple, but so sweet and warm as well. What more can you ask for? :)

Birgit contacted me back in July. I photographed her colleague’s wedding last year, and she just loved the photos. Tino knew she really wanted me to be their wedding photographer, so he surprised her and booked me as a surprise to her. How sweet and romantic was that?!

Birgit & Tino live near Ulm and have lived there all of their lives, and they’ve even known each other for pretty much all of their lives..Tino was actually at Birgit’s Christening! I just thought that was so cool :)
We started off in Birgit & Tino’s beautiful home where they were getting ready, and then they had their first look right out behind their house… I really love first looks, and this was an awesome one…look at Tino’s expression! But who can blame him, Birgit made an absolutely stunning bride!
At this point we were a bit behind schedule, but that is really to be expected at weddings. We drove off to Blaubeuren where Birgit & Tino wanted to do their portraits. Now might be a good time to mention that Tino arranged to have an R8 as their wedding car which is Birgit’s dream car. Well it just so happens that it’s mine as well..I was a bit jealous to have to drive behind them the whole time lol..such a hot car..and the sound it makes..omg! We walked around Kloster Blaubeueren and the Blautopf for about an hour…Birgit & Tino are super photogenic and were naturals in front of the camera, making my job pretty easy :)
Before we knew it we had to leave and head over to the Standesamt in Nellingen where they had their short civil ceremony with their closest friends and family, followed by a cocktail hour outside. Next up was their church ceremony in the Marienkirche in Aufhausen. It was a beautiful ceremony! Afterwards Birgit & Tino were surprised by Birgit’s friends from Aerobics and Tino’s soccer friends… this was a church exit I have never seen before..it was so fun!
After everyone had a chance to congratulate the bride & groom we all drove over to Hotel Meinl in Neu-Ulm where the reception was held. What an awesome location!! Both inside and out! Inside has a really ‘clean,’ kind of modern look which makes it easy to personalise with decorations. 2 sides of the room were huge windows/doors that look out over a beautiful field and eventually an amazing sunset. Once it got dark outside, the candles on the tables reflected beautifully in the windows making it look like there were even more candles in the room. The cocktail hour was held outside on the patio and lawn under the beautiful fall sun. The light was so pretty, we got to take advantage of it for family photos.
As the sun set, the guests started to make their way inside for the rest of the evening. After dinner Birgit & Tino had their first dance surrounding by their guests holing sparklers…how romantic!! This really kicked the party off and soon he dance floor was full! After a few rounds of dancing the guests got to take a little break for cake & a dessert buffet, which by the way, included the best Creme Brûlée I have ever had..it was amazing!
It really was a wonderful day! I’m so glad I got to spend it with Birgit & Tino and their great friends & family. It was one of those weddings where you really feel the warmth and the love in the room.
@Birgit & Tino, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day. It was such an honour to be able to document these special moments for you!
