Today’s vlog is about one of my favorite places in the world and a little tradition that hails from there. Lake Bled, Slovenia. Such an absolutely beautiful place! Bled is a town surrounded by amazingly lush mountains, with the most peaceful of lakes nestled in the middle of it. And in the middle of this lake is a teeny tiny island. Atop this tiny island, up 99 steps, is the most pretty little church. How lovely does that sound already, right? (Go here to see more of how wonderful Bled is!)
So, in my special place, Lake Bled, there is a local wedding tradition that I have heard a lot about over the years. It is a wedding day tradition that grooms must carry their brides all the way up those 99 steps to the church! Crazy! But so fun! And I just love love love that this local tradition is carried on through the years (by some people at least!).
Lake Bled truly holds such a special place in my heart and, since that guy chickened out, I am determined to witness this tradition firsthand one day. And to have an opportunity to document it and photograph a wedding there would make my heart absolutely sing! Oh, to dream!
So, what traditions do you love? Even if you don’t practice it, is there a tradition you think is super cool, cute, or fun? Tell me, tell me!
