The yellow Dubrovnik Wedding of Mia and Torstein- island ceremony and villa reception

It has been exactly 2 years since Mia and Torstein got married. I will never forget their wedding and it was special in many different ways, and I hope photos will tell you enough of it. I have been planning to write a blog post about this particular wedding for so long now, well two years exactly, and better late than never right :)?
So this is my way of saying happy 2nd anniversary Mia and Torstein, you beautiful people who reminded me what love is all about.

When I first met Mia and Torstein and when they presented to me their wedding vision, I absolutely fell in love with it. I will tell you about the wedding in the story to come and have no doubts you will love the scenario of this lovely day these two amazing people prepared for their friends and family. It was a true pleasure being part of it....

It was a morning ceremony, well a late morning one, at 11am. It was a beautiful, sunny, crisp and pleasantly breezy day and nothing could get in a way of this beautiful bride heading to the man of her dreams..... while guests were taken by a boat to wait for the bridal party on the island of Lokrum, Mia and her entourage slowly made their way - in a speed boat (well, maybe not so slow?). Bond. Mia Bond style :)
It was sooooo much fun :)

Torstein was already there, anxiously waiting for his Bride. Set up was perfect, it wasn't too hot under a pleasant shade of the palm trees and the sea breeze coming from all sides on this beautiful island.... The ceremony was so personal, it is difficult to explain in words and I still so vividly remember it. EVERYONE was crying, just everyone....

After the touching ceremony, guests were served cocktails to toast to the newlyweds and canapes to grab a bite while Mia and Torstein, now husband and wife, went for a photosession with Veronica, their wedding photographer. Everyone was in their formals, but with extra bags as they knew an informal part is coming soon :)

Shortly aftterwards, guests were ushered to the boat, for lunch snacks, drinks and a bit of swimming too. This was the first time this fabulous idea actually came to life and to the fullest- absolutely every guest, including the Bride and the Groom, jumped in. It was a perfect afternoon.... After a couple of hours of summer joys, guests were taken to their hotels for an afternoon nap before the beautiful villa reception....

Just before heading there, Mia had another hair and makeup touch up and it was time to get the party rolling. We spent a whole day in the villa , making it up as the Bride imagined it to be, loaded with yellow lanterns, cushions around the pool. small table details to make a big picture look so magnificent. And it did look magnificent, didn't it?

Guests were welcomed by klapa band, Croatian's traditional songs and everyone just loved the local touch. Bride came the last, as it should be, at a fabulous cheer of all the guests. It was a midsummers dream. A true one....

After a big set of speeches, the Norwegian way :), and a fantastic buffet dinner full of Croatian specialties, guests were more than happy to hit the floor. The DJ did his job and the dance floor was full in no time. The party continued quite long as neighbours were more than tolerant and we will be eternally gratefull for that as they made two people's happyness complete.
It was one fabulous wedding.

So happy 2nd anniversary Mia and Torstein! May you always be happy and in love as you were 27th of June 2011!!!

With love, your Dubrovnik Wedding Planners :)
