This beautiful couple Gabriella and Michel have a yearly dinner at home to celebrate their birthdays, and invite their closest friends. This year, they didn’t have the dinner and blamed it on renovations at home, and instead invited their friends to dinner at their favorite restaurant, a SUPER cozy restaurant in the heart of Stockholm named Daphnes. Now earlier in the day, they got married on a terrace at the hotel Berns, and I had the pleasure of being there to see them wed with their families and adorable son present. After the ceremony and portrait session, I headed over to the restaurant to photograph the guests arriving (before Gabriella and Michel made their entrance). When the friends arrived at the the restaurant, they found a seating chart, and as more and more friends started showing up I could tell they started to realize that something was up. It was so fun to watch them arrive and quietly ask each other what was going on, while I knew what had happened, that they had just gotten married! When the bride and groom arrived, the party started and champagne started flowing. Gabriella and Michel wanted to have a relaxed dinner and an unpretentious wedding party, and that is exactly what they got. The photos I am posting are just a few from the portrait session, but I think (and hope) reflect their personalities and their style.
