Where in the World Challenge: Germany


#15 Germany: Today we travel to Germany & I found out some pretty cool things in this article called 15 Things you Didn't know were German. Found out the song "Here Come's the Bride" & "The Wedding March" were both written by German composers. Here's a quote from the article: First known as the “Treulich gef├╝hrt”, the song that is forever linked to women in white gowns, was composed in 1850 by Richard Wagner for his opera, Lohengrin. Although the song is now traditionally played as the bride makes her way down the aisle, it was sung (yes, it even has original words to go along) in the Opera after the ceremony by the members of the bridal party. Oh – and by the way, the OTHER wedding song (the recessional) is also by a German: Felix Mendelssohn – it is called the Wedding March and it is from A Midsummer Night’s Dream 

So I decided to base my design off my own wedding day & the orange/yellow roses from the bouquets. I'll always hold that day dear to my heart, it was one of my happiest memories! Here are a few pictures:




















And now the nails...
