The Wedding and Wengen

What a spectacular wedding my sister had last night at Mielcke & Hurtigkarl. This gourmet restaurant is located in the beautiful Frederiksberg Have of Copenhagen. The location and restaurant were as impressive as the outstanding gourmet food.Here is the entrance to the restaurant and the lovely outdoor gardens. The gardens were spectacular and we had our cocktails there when we arrived. The children enjoyed playing with the peacocks which roamed the grounds. But the gardens were the most beautiful under the stars. We were warmed by the outdoor fireplaces while we had after dinner drinks
And here is the room where we had such a wonderful time. The chairs were Gustavian and in two styles. I loved the white rubbed paint and chippy gold accenting. I think I took fifty pictures of the chairs. The ceiling was enchanting. Between the crystal chandeliers were hundreds of individual crystals hanging down catching the candlelight; and later they were illuminated by blue lights when the dancing began. Really quite stunning. It was a beautiful start to what should be a beautiful life together for her and my new brother in law.

We were up way too early this morning to head to Wengen in the Switzerland. We finally arrived and here is just one of the beautiful chalets I see while looking out at the alps. So much inspiration at every turn. Can't wait to share more when I return!

Auf Wiedersehen!!
