City Hall wedding
Ben and Grace are two dear friends of mine, who decided to get married on the 2nd of May 2020. Only they didn’t get married on the 2nd of May 2020, because there just happened to be a worldwide pandemic. And then the wedding got moved up to July. Yet again, their well-laid plans were foiled by Corona. They tried once again in October, and then in January.
Fast forward to JUNE 2021 and finally they had a chance to say their I do’s, but in a very small and intimate way. Don’t worry though, they had one more trick up their sleeve when it came to their big bash. They were planning to say yes in Amsterdam, and a month later once more in Crete surrounded by friends and family.
Ok back to the their city hall wedding. Grace is someone who loves the finer things in life. She always looks amazing, has great taste in fashion and just always knows the best places to go for food. She is also a steadfast friend, caring and gracious, with excellent advice to boot. Ben is the type of person who always makes you feel at ease, who is caring and kind, and will 100% make sure you always have a drink or snack in your hand at parties.
We started the day at their house in Amsterdam East and walked 5 minutes to the City Hall. Along with their two witnesses, they ringed, signed and kissed (not their witnesses) and were out of there within 20 minutes.
To celebrate we headed over to the Vergulden Enhoorn, making photos along the way.
It was such a beautiful day in a summer of many not-so-beautiful-days. So I’m very happy that the universe gave them this little gift.
