Lovely Monday: My Little Sister’s Wedding & De Puddingfabriek

April 26, 2011

It’s Monday, and what could be more lovely than a wedding?

I am still recovering from the busy week in The Netherlands and stressful flights (both there and back) due to delays caused by the weather. And of course jetlag – my goodness, it’s hitting me hard this time. However, it was definitely a 100 % worth it!

My little sister got married to her knight in shining armor, what a beautiful couple:

So Dutch with the windmill in the background! I love it!

I also really like this candid shot I managed to snap. They did an impromptu photo shoot at a skate park against a background of graffiti, such a great contrast with their wedding attire. I can’t wait to see the photos!

Posing with our parents. Mind you, we’re posing for the wedding photographer and this photo was snapped of an in-between moment by the brother of the groom, Bill.

I am so blessed to have grown up with a sister and so thankful for how close we are. What a profound experience to watch her get married – my little sister all grown up!

We had dinner at De Puddingfabriek. It used to be a factory where puddings were made (hence the name the Puddingfabriek, which means the pudding factory), and is now converted to a studio space. It is a beautiful, loft-like, inspiring space:

With a view of the river De Zaan:

The table setting was simple but pretty:

I love the little Dutch couples that my sister used as decoration:

My Dad enjoying the delicious Indonesian food:

The space also functions as a photo studio and I love this little corner with mirrors. Such a pretty purple wall and those wicker bar stools are so great.

And a beautiful shabby chic armoire:

In the end, it’s the details like the twig hearts above and the pretty wreath below that make a space feel special and treasured to me:

The next morning during clean-up I snapped this picture of the lovely Vera, part of the creative husband and wife team that operates this space. In the back you can see the photo studio, of course I drooled over that chair.

Wishing you a good week!

    Lovely photos and lovely family, too.
    The setting is incredible, I like the windmill and the color of it, I like the Dutch ceramic coulpe, the hearts and the wreath. Little touch like these give a special flavour to everything. I would have liked to be there and taste the Thai food!

    What a beautiful couple! I can’t wait to see the graffiti pictures they took, I hope you get a chance to post them when she gets them. It is so fun to see other places of the world, it is as if I have traveled there, but without the jet lag and the bad flights :) Congratulations to your sister and her new husband.
