   Switzerland…is there anywhere more majestic? After spending a few days in Lauterbrunnen, I’m officially convinced that I’ve found heaven on earth! We arrived by train on a misty afternoon. At first, all I could see from the window was the fog that danced around the mountain tops and settled gently over the valleys and rivers below. As we got closer to our destination, the fog started to clear and this peaceful little town came into view. The train let out a loud whistle (old school style lol) and I smiled as the sound echoed across the valley floor. We had never seen anything like Lauterbrunnen, and we instantly knew that we were in for a memorable trip…

   We stayed at a Swiss Hotel in town that had a gorgeous view of Staubbach Falls. The valley is amazingly home to 72 waterfalls in total. We spent our days discovering nearby Swiss towns like Murren and Grindelwald, hiking the Jungfrau ice fields and indulging in more Alp Cheese (exclusive to the area) and Swiss chocolate than a girl could ever hope for! One day we ventured out to the edge of the town where we found a flock of sheep grazing in the grass. I’m an animal fanatic so I became fast friends with the youngest in the herd. She was a friendly little thing, who I promptly nicknamed: “Daisy.” In Switzerland, all the sheep are adorned with bells so farmers can easily find them if they stray. Well…when they run together, the bells become a symphony of beautiful sounds. Picture dozens of wind chimes blowing together in the breeze…That’s exactly how I remember the bells! It was something magical that I won’t soon forget. On our second day in the Alps, we found this meadow, which quickly became my favorite spot to sit back and dream. We would visit this spot two more times before our departure to take pictures and relax while surrounded by the tall grass and wildflowers. When winter arrives, I know that the memory of this meadow and the sound of the bells will provide me with endless amounts warmth and inspiration…

  Fun fact: Lauterbrunnen is rumored to be the place that inspired J.R.R. Tolkien to create Rivendell for The Lords of The Rings novels. He traveled to Switzerland many times in his youth and was known to hike in the area. For all you non-Middle-Earth fans, Rivendell is a magical kingdom in the books where the elves live and one of the most beloved cities in the story. It’s hard not to be inspired by this beautiful place…looking back at these photos makes me realize just how picture perfect it really was. For my editing process, I used the “White Rose” Preset from The Wedding Collection along with makeup brushes and paint brushes from The Brush Collection. If you’re interested in more Lightroom Presets, you can check out my larger package: The Complete Collection, with hundreds of chic looks to play with. Well, Switzerland is definitely a place that you must see at least once. There are hundreds of photo opportunities and hidden gems for you to capture along the way. I hope that one day you will find yourself in Lauterbrunnen so that you can experience heaven on earth yourself! Until my next post…as always…sweet dreams until sun beams find you!
