Interestingly enough, this day may never have happened! Nina shared with us, "Get married? No way! Should it happen some day, then by no means in a white wedding dress. That was my staunch conviction. But then finally came my dream prince and the dream wedding followed." And dream it was. The couple spend two years, planning, designing, creating a wedding vision to fit their unique personalities. "We started collecting old vases: big, small, simple, broken... it didn't matter. We only wanted them to have charm and fit the occasion. We decorated them with bright ribbons, roses, and lace. Also, it was a lucky coincidence that my husband is a gifted graphic designer."
"We did not want to have our party in a city venue but somewhere in the countryside and so we quickly opted for the cozy Café del Sol in Dusseldorf, situated near the Rhine in an idyllic nature reserve. The owner’s last name was “Sunshine,” and so of course we decided in favor of his place.
