Many many moons ago, back in the day when I was still married and my ex and I went on a trip through Europe, I remember Christian reaching out to see if we would be passing through wherever in Europe he was living at the time. The sun and the stars didn’t align and we wouldn’t meet in person 8 years ago, but when his name popped up in my inbox, asking if I’d be available for a wedding in Denmark, I remembered him immediately and I was so in!

He and Agnes, his now wife, represent four nationalities between the two of them — Christian is Danish-Chilean and she is Polish-German. Their weddings was one of the most international weddings I have ever photographed, and that’s saying a lot because the events I shoot are often packed with folks from all over the globe. There were…wait for it, wait for it…PEOPLE FROM 18 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES AT THIS WEDDING!!!

We started out at a typical Danish church in Tibirke. It was thousands of years old, the original site had been a pagan place of worship, until the Christians arrived to dump mounds of dirt all over the spot where the rituals had been done, to eventually build a church on the hill. As churches do in Denmark, this one had a boat hanging from the ceiling! A boat!!!

Afterwards, we moved to a monastery, built in 1100. Architecture in the U.S. is old if it was built a couple hundred years ago, but we were walking over stones that had been put into place, literally thousands of years ago.

When the guests walked in and sat down for dinner, the coordinator stood up and gave a quick talk about the history of the monastery. Everybody listened, fascinated. I thought it was so cool that they took the time to explain more about a place that obviously means a lot to Agnes and Christian. Then, the same coordinator also introduced all of the servers by name. What respect for both people, and history. I was incredibly impressed by the entire Danish culture in that sense.

To say it was a privilege to part of this wedding is an understatement. Being there with this amazing couple in  a dream location, made me feel like the luckiest photographer in the world. And I’m proud of say…I was ON FIRE taking these photos! I can’t wait to share them with you…read on 😀
