Villa Odinslund Göteborg - Sweden - Loke Roos


Isabelle and  Cody were married on 31st July 2015 at Villa Odinslund in Göteborg, Sweden. ‘Neither of us are religious so we wanted to create our own ceremony and wedding. We wanted it to be true to us the whole way so we added the love for nature and our own quirkiness to it. It was a day inspired by nature, soft pallets and our love for each other and our interests.’ Outdoor Swedish Wedding

How they met

We met during Isabelle’s first few days in Los Angeles, at a housing meeting for the college we were both going to attend. We where sitting facing each other but on different tables, we actually didn’t speak until later but Cody definitely made and impression. Throughout the whole meeting he was making faces at himself in the mirror behind Isabelle. If you’d told her then that he was going to be her future husband she wouldn’t have believed you. But we soon found out we where going to be neighbours, we ended up spending every night together and shortly we where best friends. Outdoor Swedish Wedding

The Proposal

We where in the Grand Canyon with both our sets of parents. After a day of walking around and admiring the beauty they decided to have dinner at the Grand Hotel. Waiting for our table they we were sitting and having drinks outside on the porch, right where the cliff starts. It was a beautiful evening and the sun was about to set when Cody asked Isabelle to go on a walk with him and take a few pictures. After some persuasion Isabelle decided join and they walk along the cliff until they got a beautiful section of little trees. We were completely hidden from everybody else; just us, the sunset and the Grand Canyon in front of us. And that’s when Cody went down on one knee and asked Isabelle to marry him. Outdoor Swedish Wedding

Favourite part of the wedding

I think that was right after our first dance. Everybody came up and joined us on the dance floor, no matter what age. It was such a joy to see everybody having such a great time; just dancing and laughing no matter how much some knees must have hurt. It was such a great evening and we felt so surrounded with love and support.
