I must have been crazy …

… to fly to the Netherlands for just one day to photograph a wedding. But what a wedding, what a trip it was! Due to volcanic activity it was a miracle that I made it there ... and back almost on schedule. Eyjafjallajokull seemed to have some kind of personal grunge against me as it made me almost miss the wedding due to its ash cloud and subsequent flight cancellations. It then behaved well all Saturday and sent another cloud to Schiphol Airport on Sunday. The airport was closed shortly after I had left on the plane back to Boston.

It turned out to be a wonderful day for everybody involved. The sun was shining a little bit ... not too much to spoil the perfect soft light for the outdoor photos. And just enough to supply light through the huge church windows in Deventer. The venue, the majestic pocket palace "Huis De Voorst", built in 1695 as a replica of the royal Palace Het Loo in Apeldoorn, and completely renovated in 2005, was the perfect backdrop for this romantic day.

Anke and Mike, I am so happy for you. I wish you all the best for the future and tons of fun on your honeymoon.
