An elopement in Wengen, Switzerland offers a picturesque and romantic setting for couples seeking an intimate and memorable wedding experience. Wengen, nestled in the Swiss Alps, provides stunning natural backdrops with majestic mountain views, lush forests, and charming alpine villages.

Amanda and Kayla decided to have their symbolic wedding ceremony amidst the serene beauty of the Swiss countryside, overlooking the iconic Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau mountains (if you like this scenery, you can also look at Mürren and Grindelwald.

I will always remember this once-in-a-lifetime moment, which was truly emotional and extremely beautiful, thanks to the dedication of these two ladies from the marriage preparation until their big day.

“We were brought together by something bigger than us”

Amanda and Kayla met by chance, at the start of the pandemic, when internet was the only connection to the outside world. They both joined a dating site the same night and after a few conversations, quickly realized how strong their connection was.

During our Zoom meetings, they told me with emotion that they were put in each others lives at the exact moment they were supposed to be, despite being in the same place at the same time quite a few times.
"Our love is special, knows no limits and is everlasting. We were brought together by something bigger than us and whatever it was, knew exactly what we needed in a partner", they said.

The two ladies quickly fell in love with each other.

Amanda said : "The biggest thing that made me fall in love with Kayla was her heart. She’s a love bug and loves me really well. I love her sense of humor, I love her quirkiness, I love that we have very similar views and outlooks on life, we are content just being together. I love her beautiful eyes and her beautiful smile and the childlike innocence that she has."

Kayla responded : "It was easy to fall in love with Amanda. I love her heart, her soul and her mind. She makes me feel seen, heard and loved and most of all, she makes me feel safe. I love that she is adventurous and never scared to try something new. I love her strength and wisdom. I fell in love quickly and am still finding new things to fall in love with every day. "

They decided to get married because both of them felt it was the right timing, the right person and the right feelings. "We have both never been so sure about a decision", they expressed.

I'll forever cherish the vibrant atmosphere during the ritual they selected to symbolize the strength of their bond. They exchanged vows amidst tears and smiles, melting my heart, during this unforgettable symbolic ceremony.

“Marriage is a bond between two people founded on the principles of love, trust, and companionship. A partnership that gets each other through life when you need each other the most and also someone to share the most amazing experiences with”, the couple said.

The kindness and generosity of these ladies will forever hold a special place in my heart. I'm immensely grateful for the opportunity to have crossed paths with them and to have co-created this unforgettable bubble of love with and for them.

“When two people are meant for each other, no time is too long, no distance is too far, and no one can ever tear them apart.

Dear Amanda, dear Kayla, which sentence could better describe what led you here and now, celebrating the most precious thing on earth, your most precious feeling toward each other: LOVE.

Welcome to the core of your emotions, in this wonderful place which was part of your biggest dreams. A dream come true, like many other wonderful things that became reality as soon as you were brought together by the magical laws of the universe.”

What the couple said

"Never did we think anyone, let alone someone we had just met, could capture our love and love story in such a beautiful and meaningful way. Yet, Marylin did just that and it was as if she had known us for years and witnessed our love firsthand.

Marylin said everything we could have wished for in the most elegant way and we are forever grateful for how she made us feel that day. You can really see just how much Marylin loves what she does, it shows through her work and the words she carefully chooses. She made our day PERFECT and we are so grateful for all the hard work she put in!"

Thank you so much for the kind words, my dearest Amanda & Kayla.
