As many German couples do, Marianna and Tom opted for a very small and intimate elopement. They describe their wedding as more of a photo session in the beautiful Bavarian Alps! Enjoy this Snowy Elopement in Germany! Xoxo, Jessica

How did you meet?
We met in Munich at a work celebration. One of my colleagues brought his sons from Hamburg. At the end of the evening, he asked to bring me home. At my house, Tom asked for my phone number and for a long time I was searching for it in my phone, as I didn’t remember my German number! From that moment on, Tom came to “visit his father” more often and every time he would bring me to work and back. Already in one month, we were living together. We painted walls together, were improving our professional skills, going to work, exploring the world and discovering new interesting things. We did everything without any plan, but always together.
What is your proposal story?
In two years Tom proposed at a small cozy beach restaurant in Barcelona.
Tell us about your wedding vision.
We wanted something unusual for our wedding day. Nothing big, just a special moment for the two of us. Our photo shoot in the mountains was absolutely perfect. It was winter, with a lot of snow around, but we were not cold at all. It was really strange. We were completely happy.
Do you have any advice for couples planning their wedding now?
Make something unusual, but close to your soul.
