A pretty girl from Sweden met a stylish boy from Oklahoma through a crazy chain of events and before long, fell in love . 4900 miles apart, 7 hours time difference . It didn't take long for Jon to decide to make the move to Malmö himself, and not long after that, they were engaged . They just knew .
So last summer, we packed up and headed to Malmö with some friends, to celebrate these two becoming one . It was a night in June, when the sun didn't set until 10pm, and rose only 6 hours later at 4am . The days were long and we never knew what time it was . But it didn't matter . We ate and drank and danced and laughed -- all on repeat for days and days . The Swedes know how to throw a party .
Their day went smoothly and slow, her friends helping her get ready in her & Jon's home, and Jon getting ready with his friends and family who had flown in to celebrate . Klara's good friend custom made her dress, and her shoes were from & Other Stories . and that's all she needed . I love her simplistic style + ways about her . After the beautiful wedding in an old church in the south of Sweden, the reception followed at Holmanäs Gärd, which was beautiful and matched the style + aesthetics of the day perfectly . Toast after toast was given, lots of kisses for the bride (per Swedish tradition), dancing and wine and worlds colliding over conversations held till morning .
Jon + Klara, you have amazing people who surround you . & it's because you yourselves are amazing . We love you . & hey, congrats on that baby due any day now! <3
