American Wedding at Lake Constance – Lena and Shane

Whenever two worlds collide it is usually hard work.

Not with Lena and Shane though. They make it look so easy and smooth and watching them talk and laugh with each other, exchanging hugs and tender looks is such a delight!

Although Shane was born and raised in the US and Lena in Germany, those two are living proof that love doesn’t care about distance.

During one of Lenas visits in the US, Shane wanted to take a walk with her down to Lake Michigan. Lena, being tired actually tried to convince him not to go but in the end she went along. Little did she know he planned it all out long ago and had a big surprise for her!

As they walked together to the Lake Lena with no fiber of her being knew what was coming next.

Right there by the lake, with the sun setting behind them, Shane went down on one knee and asked the question: “Will you be my wife?”

Needless to say that Lena was over the moon and accepted his request with a heartfelt: “YES!”

That was just the beginning of their journey towards their beautiful wedding and eventually – their life together!

They planned their wedding in Salem at Lake Constance with friends and family from Germany and the United States.

In the gallery/barn of the Recks Hotel they set up beautiful decorations with linen details, little birds and old books but the one detail that stood out to me was that Lena didn’t just wear any bridal shoes to her wedding. No! She wore the very same shoes her mother had worn years ago when she herself married Lenas father!
