No news that it's beautiful on the wine route in Rhineland-Palatinate. But if really everything is great at a wedding, then that's a fair reason to climb on the table.
In the heart of Bad Durkheim, hidden behind walls and vines, you'll find the 'Rittergarden', the garden of the Fitz-Ritter winery. They are not only the oldest champagne producer in the Palatinate, but they do also host the 'RebArena' in which Ari's and Phillip's wedding took place in August last year. As there are more reliable things than the summer in Germany, the two and their guests were safely placed under a tent. There Martin - a pastor and family friend from Bremen - held a great ceremony. And while it fortunately remained dry on the outside, inside some tears were shed - not least thanks to the fantastic voice of Miss KayKay, vocal Lady of the band "That Way".
The ceremony was followed by a wonderful summer afternoon in the blossoming gardens. And while Ari and Phillip went 'underground' for a few special wedding photos in the wine cellars, the guests kept the good mood and really enjoyed themselves. Even now it was clear 'that gang can party!'
For the evening we went on into the historic vaulted hall of the winery, where "die culinarier" served almost magical meals and left nothing to be desired. The band "That Way" cared for the party mood, occasionally accompanied by Phillips father, who would hardly give away the microphone. He did not only deliver one of the best speeches I have ever heard in my whole wedding history, but also a song or two on stage . No wonder that a large part of the guests climbed chairs and tables dozens of times during the evening to loudly declare the ovious: 'What a cool party man!'
A day of fun, really great people and an incomparable warmth, which has set a new benchmark, even after many many weddings. Thank you!
