I can think of no more perfect story to kick off this new Journal for The Adventures Of. When Alex at Sterling Engagements first contacted me about this wedding, she said the bride and groom were "super fun, kinda quirky" and had a fantastic story. That was a huge understatement.
Lindsay is from California. Anders is from Denmark. Each would describe the other as a "wild child" with extreme wanderlust and an adventurous spirit. They met at a wildlife sanctuary in Namibia, and have gone on to explore the world together. The incredible serendipity of their story led many guests to comment that day that we were witnessing the happy ending of a real life fairy tale. I think this is only the beginning of the downright magical adventures that these two are sure to have.
The sweeping views of the Malibu hills from Chateau le Dome at Saddlerock Ranch provided a breathtaking backdrop for a sweetly personalized ceremony. The groom's brother officiated over the union, which included some beautiful symbols of Lindsay's Jewish heritage (although when it came time to break the glass, somehow it was nowhere to be found!).
Tissue warning: These are some of the most moving vows I've ever heard! Are all Danish men this poetic, or is it just this lovely family?
The special traditions that surround weddings are always such a delight - between the hora, the Danish wedding waltz, and cutting the groom's socks and tie, this wedding was full of traditions that were celebrated with joy! Josh and I are so grateful to have been a part of such a joyous and personal celebration for such generous people. Lindsay and Anders, we wish you many many years of love and adventure to come!

P.S. I have to give a special mention of the soundtrack in this film. When I asked Lindsay about the type of music they listen to, she sent me a link to this awesome music video by Radical Face. I was so in love that I wrote to the artist and he was kind enough to let me license the song. Then Chris Bartels of Anthem Falls Music composed the perfect ambient track to tie it all together.
