Aachen, Germany: home of the famed Aachen cathedral, charming cobbled streets of amazing shopping, and one of the coolest Summer wine festivals I have ever guested. Such is the idyllic scene set for Nilani and Sten’s August wedding, in a village that could have been torn straight out of the pages of some Hans Christian Anderson fairytale. I only met Sten moments before his bride-to-be walked down the aisle, but I was immediately struck by his (as well as all of their guests’) sheer excitement for the day. The genuine enthusiasm every guest felt for Sten and Nilani was infectious- it was clear these two were meant to be together. I could go on about how perfectly their day unfolded, but I’ll let their photos do the rest of the talking:
