JESS + TOBI
“Dude Love. Love Pays with Love“
These were Jess’s first words to us:
My fiancé is German. : ) I met him when we were eleven years old in school. We were in the same group of friends but later at 18 we started dating. From January to April of that year we went to New Zealand and Australia. Eight years later as a couple he proposed to me in a park in Sydney with a picnic and the skyline as a backdrop. It was magical!
Jessica wins you over in a moment when you hear her sweet Mexican accent. After having lived many years in Germany you can see a mix between her Mexican character but also her taste for organization and timing. Tobi wins you over at his own rhythm with his politeness and willingness—a classic gentleman that harkens to a young Paul Newman (defender of his ideals and married to the same woman for 50 years).
A Mexican-German couple with a wedding in three languages. It opened step by step, first with an intimate ceremony in the Schloss Ahrensburg Castle and afterward a boat cruise on Lake Alster.
The wedding the next day was held in St. Michaelis Kriche in Hamburg. From there we joined all of the guests for a boat ride on the Hamburg River to see the Elbphilharmonie (where the couple got dressed that day) and the Speicherstadt. The boat ride was an hour and a half of enjoying views of the city and its surroundings until we arrived at Ballsaal Süllberg Hotel Hamburg and its surrounding gardens that look out over a beautiful view of the mountain.
The most beautiful aspect of my job is to observe and learn from love. And when you see it, it infiltrates your very being. Thank you for sharing a weekend full of love and letting us be a part of it. And how can you get better than ending with Frank Sinatra? You deserve nothing less!
Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don’t break it
Love was made for me and you
