A Wedding in Puglia – ‘La Vita è Bella’ Micro Wedding in the Italian Countryside

August 9, 2021
Visiting Italy for another beautiful Wedding

Some days ago, I flied to Italy and Puglia, near Ostuni, to be the one to capture an amazing wedding. Micro weddings were the last year’s thing but who said that this trend will ever gets old?

Kirstie and Niklas are an international couple from the U.S. and Germany. They decided to tie the knot in Italy. As she mentioned ‘We met in Shanghai and spent a month there, together. On
our last day in Shanghai, when parting ways at the train station, I told him I really hoped we would see each other again. He told me he knew we would.’

And so they did. Beautiful stories lead to beautiful weddings. The ones you witness and a small thought of an old world romance comes in your mind.

Their closest friends and family were there for them. They initially went back and forth with the idea of a big wedding and decided on a micro wedding / vacation hybrid given the ever changing restrictions. As she mentioned ‘Our families, living in different countries, don’t often get to spend time with each other and this quality time means a lot to us.’

What’s the most amazing part in my opinion? The planning and design part of the wedding day was the Kirstie’s thing. And believe me, my dear readers, she did an amazing job.

Visit the gallerie and fall in love with Kirstie and Niklas international fairytale. A fairytale written in the Italian countryside and the amazing Puglia.
