Let me tell you a little bit about Ruin Retreat. The ruin was actually never anything else than a ruin. Two German brothers built the ruin as a reminder of their homeland and created purely for their homesick wives. The brick stone ruins you can see today has gotten a stunning makeover by the new owners. The owners molded into the perfect spot where you can watch the sunset over the Baltic Sea during warm summer nights.
Married couple Marie and Carl Gustavsson run the resort today, and they did a fantastic job transforming this ruin to a luxury boutique hotel and venue.
Moa Lerin, the lady behind Lerin Wedding Occasions, contacted me for a project. I suggested Ruin Retreat as our location. Months of planning and hard work lay behind a project like this and couldn’t be done without the whole team. Linnéa from The Wild Rose Weddings created the floral installations and the area was transformed into something positively unprecedented. Elins Art Studio outdid herself with the beautiful seating cart printed on exquisite fabric. Elin also experimented with plexiglass for the gorgeous invites which I especially love. They perfectly matched Ruin Retreat’s colors and unique vibe. Style By Sandy brought in sumptuous tabletop rentals and cake provided by Cake Art.
A special thanks to Marie Carlsson who is a delight to work with. I can not recommend her venue enough. Whether you are getting married, hosting a workshop or a retreat. This place has something for every vogue seeking couple or creative.
