Jon + Klara | Sweden Wedding

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 



Oh, these two . They're so wonderful .

If you've been following my blog for awhile, then you'll know that this blog post is technically a repeat . But since I've rebranded, I decided to re-edit these photos because they are some of my favorites, and also because it's time to finally blog their wedding! 

This specific post is of Jon + Klara's engagement session . Jon is a friend of ours from Oklahoma, but once he fell in love with a Swedish girl, it wasn't long before he made the move to Sweden to be with her . And soon after, I travelled there to document their engagement! Really, it was just us all hanging out, doing Swedish things like walking everywhere, eating open faced sandwiches for breakfast, having 'Fika' daily, making meals together, and wearing all black (of course). I like the way the swedes do life . It's slow-paced, people are kind + intentional, and seriously have the best style . We explored Klara's hometown of Malmö, Sweden and also made our way 30 minutes west to Copenhagen, Denmark . The whole trip was so dreamy .

So today, their engagements . Tomorrow I'll post their wedding! <3
