Wedding Inspiration Featuring Our Local German Heritage

Our German heritage is a large part of our Southwestern Indiana culture. Our festivals, restaurant offerings, and town and street names are examples of that ancestry. The Bauerhaus in Darmstadt is an example of German style. (Also, the name of the venue and the town name is another give away!) Some of the talented area vendors gathered at the Bauerhaus in March to create wedding inspiration that plays off of our German traditions.

The inspiration was drawn from European festivals and May Day celebrations. We paired bright colors, spring flowers, and ribbons with copper accents, German beer steins, and traditional German foods.
