Marte and Per Arne gathered around 100 guests for their wedding at Johnsgård Turistsenter, where they first met when they were only 12 years old. They were high school sweethearts that reconnected four years ago. Their story is truly one out of a fairytale, and one of the most beautiful things was that Marte gave Per Arne the cake toppers when they were kids – and he saved them all this time!
The wedding lasted from Friday through Sunday, and the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. There were mountains and lakes and tons of forests. The weekend started with an informal gathering Friday night at the dock, and the wedding itself was on Saturday.
The ceremony was held on the beach at Langodden, with fiddle players, row boats, and live music. Family and friends helped with everything from decorations and cake to makeup and flowers.
Earlier this year, when the couple was taking a trip to the Zoo, I got to take their engagement photos. You can see those here.
