Vanessa+ Robin

How did you meet?

We met when we were both 17 at a sports festival in his hometown. But it took another two years before we finally dated and got together

When did you know they were the one?

It’s hard to say a specific time but I knew it was special from the very beginning. He’s my best friend and I couldn’t imagine my life without him.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner? 

He’s intelligent, humorous, kind and the most amazing partner to me. I feel so incredibly lucky to have a partner who treats me so beautifully.

Who proposed and how? 

On March 12th, 2022, we went for a walk with our lovely dog Bounty. After a while, I noticed some chalk drawings on the way. At that point, I had no idea it had anything to do with us. Robin prepared the route and drew our love story on the ground with chalk. At the end of the path he got on his knees, pulled the ring out of his pocket and dropped the question. Of course I said YES!

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why? 

I found my dress at Bridal Boutique in Heidelberg, Germany. It was my first dress appointment and I tried on many MWL gowns. When she came in with Ryder, it was just so unique — I had to try it on. And, from then on, it was the dress I just couldn’t stop thinking about. I loved that Ryder was classy, unique and sparkly all at the same time.

What was the best moment for you at your wedding?

There are way too many moments to count, but I would have to say the moment I walked down the aisle and saw my future husband was the best moment. The second our eyes met all the stress was gone and I was grounded again. His face when he saw me in my dress is something I will always remember.

What were your favorite details?

We really loved everything about our wedding.

What advice would you tell other brides? 

Don’t stress about the small stuff – you are getting to marry the person you love and at the end of the day, nothing else matters.
