Amsterdam Wedding Elopement...

These two lovebirds decided to elope in Amsterdam and asked me to not only document it, but also be sort of their witness - given I was the only one there! Of course I felt beyond honored and I am so happy to have played such a big part in their day.

We started at their Airbnb - which was pretty stylish with all sorts of lovely art. Coffee and relaxing a bit is how we kicked off for this day filled with adventure. Both got ready in different rooms, but only separated by a door. I felt somewhat magical I must say.

After an emotional first look we left the Airbnb and got exploring in Amsterdam. Since this has been my hometown for about 30 years, I could lead us to some interesting spots and parts of the city. We had a blast just moving around basically looking for a great ceremony spot. How amazing is that!?

We finally found THE spot in front of a huge door, which belonged to one of the Vondelpark buildings. After some beautiful words, some tears and hugs, some magic dust and blessings from the wind it was done. Mike and Jody, husband and wife.

Magical moments with people that truly feel big and love wholeheartedly. I feel privileged to have been there and capture their love.

Guys, big big hug. Thank you so much for showing me who you are and trusting me. We'll meet again soon. I know it and I cannot wait.
