Bright & Beautiful Wedding Ceremony

At their outdoor wedding ceremony, the couple said their vows and it was the first time that Lisa actually saw the wedding ring. Although she had designed it, Reinhard wanted to keep it a surprise until placing it on her finger on their wedding day. "I simply loved it! I really like surprises," says Lisa.

Reinhard and Lisa's Love Story

Lisa shares the story of how they met and fell head over heels in love: My husband and I attended the same church. He noticed me for the first time when our small groups had a joint bible study. From there we started cycling together and went on a mission trip to the Congo. After that he started asking me out on dates and that is how our relationship started.

Wedding Confetti: For their confetti, Reinhard suggested that they use coconut shavings, which Lisa just loves!

Lisa shares the tale of their proposal: WOW! He went all out on that one. We always did something special on the 16th of each month as we officially started dating on this day of the month, so I was not aware that this day was going to be any different.
