After 10 years of dreaming about their big day, Albertine and Hagen threw a summer festival-style Berlin wedding that is truly unforgettable! The couple put their design skills to work in creating nearly everything themselves, from the invitations and website to the floral design and event styling. Then they hired the oh-so talented Merve & Nils Photography, who could not have been a more perfect fit to capture their aesthetic and energy. The day started with a church ceremony, where the couple entered hand-in-hand so they could admire everyone who made the trip to celebrate with them. After the “I dos,” they danced and ate the night away with their family and friends in a backyard festival at Schloss Vichel, which had a stately old-world charm that was the perfect backdrop for the 1930s vibe they created.
Albertine and Hagen
Schloss Vichel, Berlin, Germany
The most memorable moment of the entire day was walking hand in hand into the church and seeing all of our friends and family from so many places and countries for the first time (sometimes for a really long time) and all their emotions!
We love swing music, summer festivals, old buildings, 1930s charm, wild parks, lots of green, flowers, laughter, and a happy and relaxed vibe. So we didn’t have to choose a special theme; we just combined everything we love into a summer fest.
Our best piece of advice is to celebrate each step in the planning process and exchange many kisses along the way!

Congratulations to Albertine and Hagen, and a special thanks to Junebug member Merve and Nils Photography for sharing these beautiful wedding photos! Do you love weddings inspired by times past? This ’70s wedding inspiration truly looks like it came from another era!
Amazing wedding! I like this idea for retro stylisation!
