It’s always great to go to a wedding in Freiburg. Not only because Freiburg is easily one of the most beautiful towns in Germany, but because it’s my hometown. It gives me a chance to see old friends (and former brides) at weddings and capture wedding days for people I know. This is what happened with Tabea & Jochen.
Tabea and I went to school together and have spent hours in Latin classes together (not fun!). Then she found Jochen through StudiVZ and after only a year they got engaged on New Years eve on a mountain in Switzerland. It was clear they wanted to spend their life together, but life got in between. Now, after 5 years of being engaged they finally tied the knot in a beautiful summer wedding in Freiburg, Tabea’s hometown.
The day started with an emotional ceremony at the Melanchthonkirche in Freiburg-Haslach. Friends and family decorated the church, their friends sang for them and the officiant from their own church came to lead through the ceremony.
Then everybody headed to Greiffenegg Schlössle for reception and dinner and to enjoy the amazing panorama view over Freiburg. But before the three of us took some time for wedding portraits on the trails of the Schlossberg. The shade the giant chestnuts provided was perfect for it.
