Schloss Kronberg: A Wedding in a Real Castle

Friends,

Have you ever crossed something off your bucket list that you didn’t even dream of putting it on the list, because you didn’t know it was a possibility? Celebrating a wedding in a real castle for example? Well, this dream came through for me, I’m still pinching myself. And it couldn’t have been with a better person (other than my husband). My friend since high school got married and celebrated in Schloss Kronberg (Kronberg castle) in Germany. If you ever find yourself near Frankfurt, do visit. Or even better, stay overnight. Or best: get married!! The staff is attentive and friendly. And we even got a tour. Let me just say Schloss Kronberg is a “newer” castle for Germany. Most castles around here are from 1400 and older. This one is from 1889. And it is quite quirky, lots of layers of different styles as you might be able to tell from the outside. But the inside is elegant, yet warm.

Let me give you a tour.

Upon arriving we went into a reception room toasting to the couple and eating appetizers, while the bride and groom got their pictures taken. I wasn’t the main photographer. I mostly tried to get pictures of relatives while the main photographer was busy with the couple. But one time I snug behind him and took the picture with the tree. My friend got married at the end of November, so everything was decked out in Christmas colors. katharina-und-karsten-am-weihnachtsbaumschloss-kronberg-inside

After appetizers we were lead to the dining room for a four course meal. _MG_6453Karsten und Katharina.jpg

Have you ever had cappuccino herb and mushroom soup? Sooo good! Scratch that off the bucket list…Schloss Kronberg food.jpg_mg_6456karsten-und-katharina

After hours of eating we got a tour. It was dark by then, thus challenging to get a decent picture.

What a great day. I’d love to come back sometime in the summer, they have a lovely garden and terrace.

All pictures taken by me, except for the one that has me in it. My friend’s brother in law took that one. (Thank you Martin for taking a picture I like). I used a Canon 5d Mark ll, with a 50mm f/1.2 lens.
