Maastricht: Stumbling Across a Wedding
After yet another lunch of frites in a little cafeteria on the square in Maastricht, I came across this wedding party outside of City Hall.
Wedding Photo #1. The bride chats with guests outside City Hall while her photographer shoots cans tied to the “get-away vehicle,” a bicycle of course!
Wedding Photo #2. After the ceremony, the bride and groom led all of their guests through the lovely streets of Maastricht behind a Carnaval-like drum line. The whole city stopped and watched, took photos, cheered them on, and had a wonderful time celebrating with them.
Wedding Photo #3. Another view of the Carnaval-like drum line marching through the city.
Wedding Photo #4. I love this shot of the bride and some of her party guests as the drum line performed a few, final numbers at a restaurant where the wedding would continue for wedding guests only.
UPDATE November 20, 2011: I stumbled across this blog post of someone who must have been standing right next to me as I shot my photos that Saturday in Maastricht! (Be sure to scroll down to the photos near the end, and check out the videos!)

Thanks so much, Carissa!
And there’s bikes in a couple of the pictures 😉
Um, yeah. It’s hard to take a pic in Holland without including a bicycle. 😉
So true 🙂
I really love the first photo – it’s a great shot. I particularly like that you caught another photographer taking photos.
Thanks! I loved the “get away” vehicle. 😉
What a wonderful way to celebrate. 😀
It was pretty neat to experience it, especially the Carnaval drum line, even as a bystander.
So beautiful 😀
