Yasser + Melanie // LAUERBRUNNEN, Switzerland//PAULA JACKSON-DESTINATION WEDDING + ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

Lauterbrunnen (and surround areas), all I can say is WOW, I was completely blow away by the charm of this magical little town. Nico (my bf & videographer) Yasser , Melanie and I decided that no matter rain, shine, or full blown snow storm that we would make the best of the day & make it to the summit. So we did exactly that and we set up to the hillside of the Schilthorn via cable car, then took a 30 minute train ride and headed up the mountain. With the Alps as our backdrop we were over the moon stoked. Once we stepped off the train it was like instant winter wonderland, it was so much more beautiful than photos could have ever captured. And although we most definitely did not anticipate to receive the amount of the snow that we did, we were all surprised but grateful! Once we reached the summit at 9,740ft it was just purely magical. We hiked all the way to the summit, stopped a few times along the way and finally after reaching the summit we were able to defrost a bit. Lauterbrunnen, you will always have a special place in my heart. Yasser & Mel, thank you guys for being so open minded, adventurous and overall all amazing! oh, and up for the crazy shift in weather and the hiking in all it’s winter glory. You guys rock!
