‘Love on the Rocks’ – A Rock Music Themed Winter Wedding: Beatrice & Johann

Beatrice & Johann are true rockers, so what better theme for their winter wedding that the ultimate rock music party!?

“Laughter, Party, Music…and a lot of Love” was how the newlyweds described their wedding theme. With  music being such a huge part of their lives and love story, it was an obvious choice. They chose a hotel on the Bavarian Alps as the venue for their wedding and so their ‘Love on the Rocks’ wedding slogan we created.

“Even though rock music was a big part of the wedding, Beatrice & Johann still wanted a day full of romance – a rock glam winter fairytale, that would perfectly combine their modern lifestyles and their love for traditional Bavarian mountain ambience,” wedding planner Kerrin of Hochzeitskonzept (Weddings and Events of a Lifetime) explained. “As guests boarded the shuttle to the ceremony, they received a ‘Love on the Rocks’ festival wristband. The wedding ceremony was held in a tiny romantic mountain church, where soft blankets were laid out for the guests to keep them warm. Beatrice’s amaryllis bouquet was personalized with her great-grandmothers heirloom brooches, as she walked down the aisle to the couple’s favourite love song: ‘Everlong’ by the Foo Fighters.”

“After the ceremony family and friends were greeted at the venue with the couple’s signature drink, a ‘Love on the Rocks’ cocktail and vanilla crescents baked by the bride’s Grandmother and a Bavarian version of Tarte Flambée. Once the sun had gone down, the crowd transitioned to the main location: A 300 year old mountain pasture, beautifully restored and full of antique details. The lighting design turned the pasture into a winter wonderland, beautifully iluminating the crystalled branches and amaryllis centerpieces.”

“For the decor, we chose a colour palette that would combine rock, winter and glamour: vintage grey, silver, black and crystal-white. Little bottles of whiskey were used as escort cards, and the tables were named after a mash-up of whiskey blends and the bride and groom’s favourite rock heros. In lieu of a guestbook, family and friends were asked to sign the groom’s guitar. At midnight ( the traditional time in Germany for the bride and groom to cut the cake), their ‘Love on the Rocks’ wedding cake – a pyramid of whisky tumblers – was shared by the cheerful crowd before the partying continued until the early hours.”

“I could not imagine a more beautiful wedding day,” the bride Beatrice took over. “The whole wedding was a snow princess fairytale and a rock concert at the same time. I think it beared very deep feelings in each and every one of us. And also I’m sure, I will keep the memories of this day in my heart for ever and ever: Everlong.”

Oh doesn’t it make you feel all warm inside?!

  1. Lovely! Mike plays the ukulele and Brenda plays the guitar, so we’re right up this couple’s alley in having a shared musical connection. We came very close to performing karaoke at our wedding, but ultimately decided against it since we had so many other things to plan. However, if music is important to you, you’ll find a way to express it somehow.

  2. This is just so Uber cool! I especially love the red boots (are they wellies?) under Beatrice’s wedding dress, that is just classic.

    The photos are that good, even Johann will be willing to pick up the weddings photos in years to come and enjoy them which is normally not the done thing with men an their wedding photos, but this is the exception

    great site BTW!

  3. I am so in love with this wedding, so unique, so classy and so rock n roll! Dreamy… awesome blog too cant believe I have only just found it! x

  4. Die Erklärung ist glaubwürdig. Es wird volle Erinnerungen sein, den beliebteste Moment deiner Hochzeit mit anderen zu teilen. Das Brautkleid und die Hochzeitskarten sind ausgefallen perfekt.
