Norwegian Wedding at Lom Stave Church Wedding and Bessheim Mountain Lodge Wedding Reception

LOM Stave Church Wedding Family Portrait

 

I had the pleasure of working with Frøydis Daisy Geithus at Tone and Trond’s Norwegian wedding in the mountains.  We started the day at Bessheim Mountain Lodge in Sjodalen, Jotunheimen, Norway where Trond got ready. We traveled to the 12th-century LOM Stave Church in a1957 red Cadillac DeVille.  After the ceremony, we stopped at several locations for portraits. The reception had some traditional Norwegian moments such as the “secret kisses” is when all the women or men join a queue to kiss the bride or groom when the other left the room. When the guests clink their glasses or stomp their feet, the couple must stand on their chairs, kiss, then hide under the table. In Norway, toasting is a very important part of the day.  I was honored that my hat was used for a Norwegian traditional folk dance called “Halling” where the men dance and jump to kick a hat off a pole held high by the bride. We had an amazing time at Tone & Trond’s wedding where they treated us like friends.

Provincetown Wedding Pilgrim Monument

Race Point Beach Wedding

I had the pleasure of working with Seth Kaye for Meghan and Russell’s wedding day at the Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown, Massachusetts. The getting ready location was a house in Provincetown.  I drove with Russel for the first view to the amazing sand dunes at Race Point Beach.  After the first look, we drove to Pilgrim Monument for the ceremony and reception. The gorgeous floral arrangements were created by Wildflower of Provincetown, the cake by Cottage Street Bakery, catering by Sumptuous Catering with Sara Williams,  from Rock with DJ Sara and The Mindful Wedding was the dj that kept everyone dancing all night.

Saint Bartholomew's Episcopal Church New York City Wedding

A Dutch Man meets a woman from NYC and they get married at Saint Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in New York City.  I had the pleasure and honor to photograph groom’s perspective wedding day with Micheal Greenberg of Phototerra.  The day started at Remko’s apartment on Park Ave where he prepared with his father and friends from the Nederlands. They had champagne on the roof of the building when the rain let up, and then went to Oyster Bar at Grand Central to eat Dutch herring before going to The Yale Club for the first look. Merideth’s father walked her down the stairs to Remko where the couple spent a few moments before heading off to Saint Bartholomew’s (St. Barts) Episcopal Church where the ceremony took place. After the ceremony, we headed to Grand Central Station for a few images then walked to the Yale Club for their reception.  I had a wonderful time with everyone and wish continued love for Merideth and Remko.

Norwegian Fjord Wedding - Reception Torvis Hotell in Sogn and Ceremony at Dale Church

Norwegian Fjord Wedding Portrait

I had the pleasure and honor to work with Eirik Halvorsen photographing the wedding of Siri and Rune at the gorgeous Tørvis Hotell in Sogn, Norway.  It is amazing that the Tørvis Hotell was built in 1639 and has been a successful destination accommodation ever since. The day was sunny with white puffy clouds and a mild temperature that made for a perfect wedding day.  The day started after a delicious cup of coffee with Rune and his brother who, by the way, is very funny.  He kept us in stitches all day!  After getting ready, we drove to pick up Rune’s father at his family’s summer cottage and then drove to a car wash that happened to be not working.  After making a phone call to the owner of the car wash, all was fixed and the Mercedes was sparkling clean. The groom’s brother volunteered for double duty as the limo driver and the best man and did a great job with both. The ceremony was at Dale Church, built in the year 1240.  It was one of the most stunning churches that I’ve ever been in and provided a great backdrop to the ceremony.  Rune’s father was the officiant and the ceremony was very moving. The background for the portraits could not have been prettier and the love between the couple was easy to see. The reception included Norwegian traditions such as the guests stamping their feet while the couple stood on their chairs to kiss until the clinking of the glasses was finished.  Also, toasting was organized by the Toast Master, the bride’s brother, and lasted for a few hours.  After the amazing dinner, the dancing began.  Near sunset, around 12:30 am on this day, the couple snuck outside for some portraits and were quickly returned to the party. Eirik and I finished our wedding coverage around 3:00 am and the groom enjoyed a cold, delicious Norwegian beer with us.  I can’t think of a better way to experience the Norwegian culture than being part of an amazing wedding.  Thank you, Eirik, Siri, and Rune for allowing me to be a part of your amazing day.
