So I’m trying to figure out what to do during the 3 days that we’ll be in Paris.
We will be also be doing touristy things seeing as it’ll be Michael’s first time there and the last time I was there it was a bit of a rush and I had done little to no research.
I’ve started by writing a list of the must-sees and googling what others found to be worth a visit. Also it seems that there are a bunch of events on at exactly the time we are going.
Ok, so the couple were obviously not monks, but the setting was a Monastery, set high up on a hill in Lorch.
The couple was also my sister-in-law and her husband who were already officially married, but, as is common in Germany they also married in a church, or in this case, a monastery.
Lorch is in Schwäbisch Gmünd, kind of in the middle of nowhere, but that’s what makes it so spectacular. From atop the hill, the view is beautiful and unobstructed and the monastery grounds are lovely. There is an animal enclosure as well as a herb garden and inside the buildings there is a museum, mural and a Refectory.

With such a perfect setting, the day could only run smoothly. The rain stayed away, the sun shone and we partied through the night. I can only hope that we find our own special and beautiful location when the time comes!
