Beatrijs & Danny’s colourful industrial wedding

This couple’s beautiful celebration is full of contrasting elements and bright details, from the groom’s neon green shoes to the bride’s bright blue fingernails. Among all the tough stuff and inclusive measures like making sure there was plenty of seating inside and out, you’ve also got to love how they were able to include the bride’s father, recuperating in the hospital, via iPhone presence and Skype.
