Bavarian Elopement with Epic Views
Views on views on VIEWS. Not only is Allen Tsai a super cool guy, he's obviously uber talented. We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw today's feature in collaboration with the lovely Weddings by Silke - just look at those incredible natural views in the highest mountain terrain in Germany! This wonderful team dreamed up a dreamy intimate elopement with nothing but a few loved ones, a gorgeous ceremony floral arch by Astwerk, and incredible film images from the day.
Our destination couples can take a lot from today: simplicity reigns, a spot that requires extra travel is worth it, and intimate weddings are so quaint and meaningful. There is so much we love from today's elopement inspiration, so be sure to pull up those Pinterest boards because you'll have a lot to pin here...
From photographer Allen Tsai: "Inspired by the breathtaking views from Zugspitze, Germany’s highest peak overlooking the towns of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Weddings by Silke and I knew we wanted to create an elopement inspiration with some Bavarian flair at the top of it. Marion Astwerk built a beautiful floral arch with the mountains serving as a backdrop creating a picturesque ceremony site. Our bride wore a stunning dress by Limor Rosen full of intricate details and had the perfect look thanks to the talent of Daniela Weise. The wedding bands exchanged were designed by the talented Michaela Röemer, and the engagement ring had a perfect blue tone to go along with dusty blue stationary and calligraphy created by the amazing Nicnillasink.
To add a little more Bavarian style to this editorial, we also captured romantic portraits overlooking Garmisch-Partenkirchen in their traditional Dirndl and Lederhosen outfits. Complementing the epic ceremony scenery, we paired it with a romantic lakeside dinner in Austria by the mountain lake Plansee. The tablescape was set with blue hues accented with a variety of fruits. We ended this dreamy editorial with romantic portraits in soaking up the lake."
