    Adventuring through a Fairy Tale: Lauterbrunnen, Wengen, Mürren [Jungfrau Region, Switzerland]

    One of the areas I was most excited to visit was the Jungfrau region (within Bernese Oberland), which includes Interlaken, Grindelwald, Wengen, Mürren, and Lauterbrunnen.

At the time that I was searching, I knew that the wedding would be in St. Pete, so I was looking for just the engagement session.
