It’s been a while! This summer has been all sorts of busy. Tonight, I am sharing with you Alex and Lina’s wedding day, which took place late June in Biddeford, Maine. Alex is my cousin, originally from California, who met Lina in Brooklyn. These two instantly fell in love, and I think the question in everyone’s mind was not whether or not they would get married, but when. Lina is from Sweden, so the idea to have their wedding in Maine seemed like the best solution for all guests attending as it is the middle point between Sweden and California (and it also happens to be the place of our family reunion every year!)
For the past 1,000 years, it has been tradition in Sweden to marry on Midsummer’s Eve (or the summer solstice, the longest day of the year). This wouldn’t be complete without flower crowns and the “little frog dance”, as well as some other nice little touches Alex and Lina threw in like rice throwing, confetti, school bus transportation, corn hole, paddle ball, and orthodox singing. Every little detail in this wedding was so carefully constructed and planned out, and on top of this, Lina hand-made all of her bridesmaid’s dresses including her own! It was really amazing to see everything come together.
Anyways, I had a really hard time narrowing these down so hopefully this page doesn’t crash on you. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Congrats you two, love you both!
