Stockholm Wedding {Hanna + Corrie}

This couple melts our hearts. Plus, their wedding is pretty, posh and simply perfect!

Gorgeous Hanna and Corrie wed in Stockholm, Sweden. Their venue of choice was M/S Borgila and their photographers of choice were Isabelle and Emmi-Sabina of 2 Brides Photography.

The couple also picked a chic colour combination of “black and white with splashes of bright purple, pink, orange and blue,” explains Hanna.

Here’s what else we love about this wedding – the brides La Sposa wedding dress, the grooms suit, the colourful bridesmaid dresses, the darling bouquet, the napkin tissue pom poms from Miss Prop Shop, and the fun wedding banners.

Hanna recalls, “The ceremony in general was so emotional. We felt like finally everything we had been fighting to make happen was official and that our love had been strong enough to conquer all obstacles we had previously faced to be at this point in our life. One moment that was very strong was when we saw each other in church. Corrie was crying and we grabbed each others hands to walk the last steps together. At that point we really felt how right this was and how it was truly worth all of our struggles to be here.”

“Corrie’s speech at the dinner was also truly something special. It was so genuine and grateful and full of love and did not leave a dry eye.”

From the Couple:

What made your wedding unique?

“Our wedding was unique due to what it symbolized. Corrie being American and Hanna being Swedish, it has been a struggle to make this relationship happen, since we spent a lot of time apart with great distances between us. This wedding truly was a manifestation of love, as all weddings are, but we think the love and happiness that surrounded our wedding was really something extraordinary. We had so many people coming from all parts of the world to share this day with us, which truly set the international and loving spirit of our wedding.”

Did you DIY any details?

“We made copies of Hanna’s parent’s placement cards that was used at their wedding 26 years ago {yes, they are still married} and used them again at our reception.

We also made a sign for the church entrance in black and white and colourful ribbons that stated ‘Once in your lifetime you meet someone who changes everything’, which exactly describes our story. Corrie left his life in sunny California to come and live with Hanna in Sweden with all the difficulties and joy that brought.”

What was your biggest challenge?

“The biggest challenge was planning it while being in different countries. Hanna was in London for much of the time before the wedding doing her masters while Corrie was in Sweden. Besides that the biggest challenge was making sure that everyone understood what was happening during the ceremony and reception since we were using both Swedish and English as well as Swedish and American traditions.”

What’s your advice?

“Enjoy the day, feel the love you share and the love from everyone who are there to share your day. Live every moment of it.”

Cheers to the happy couple and thank you for sharing your pretty wedding pictures with One Stylish Bride.

    I love this!! What a gorgeous couple.

    I love everything about this wedding: the decor, the dress, the bridesmaid dresses, the napkin holders, their ride. A+ in my book 😉

  6. This wedding looks so colourful and cultural. I love the colour themes and especially liked the groom! He seems so in tune with his emotions. The photo of him standing at the alter waiting for his bride says so much. The photographer did a marvellous job capturing these moments!
