Arielle and Ryne


Ryne and I both wanted an intimate wedding to share with our closest friends. We both have Swiss-German ancestry and decided getting married in Switzerland would be the perfect way to start our life as husband and wife together. We found two wonderful coordinators in Switzerland and explained to them our dream wedding would be at a lake in the Swiss Mountains. The first place Tiziana sent to me was Lake Oeschinensee in Kandersteg, Switzerland. We both immediately fell in love with the location and knew that was exactly where we wanted to exchange our vows. We were so thankful to have our very closest friends by our side, an amazing photographer and her assistant (who did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup), and two awesome videographers (and their sweet baby) come along with us for the journey. Our good friend, Jay T, brought his guitar, and Charity was ordained to officiate. The weather was absolutely perfect and the lake is even more beautiful in person. I felt like a true fairy princess in such a magical setting with the most perfect Hayley Paige gown, finally getting to marry my Prince Charming. After our lakeside ceremony, where we exchanged our personally-written vows, we finished the cake and popped the Moet and Chandon champagne (since my gown was the Chandon gown- we had to have the matching champagne :)). While most the others took the cable car down the mountain, Ryne and I, along with our photographer and videographer, stayed behind to make the two-hour hike down the mountain. We shared our first dance and really took in the moment. I could not have asked for a more magical, meaningful ceremony, and it could not have been possible without everyone there to share it with.
