#52 Our Swedish Wedding Party

View from the Gyllene Uttern overlooking Lake Vättern.

Gyllene Uttern (English translation: The Golden Otter) is a hotel and restaurant located south of Gränna next to Vätterleden, which is a section of the E4 motorway. Gyllene Uttern was featured in Ingmar Bergman's 1957 film Smultronstället (Wild Strawberries). It was an excellent choice by Mr Bear when he picked this wonderful place to celebrate our wedding in Sweden with his family and relatives!

The welcoming entrance and...

...cosy decor as you step into the building. I was telling Mr Bear I would paint a portrait of him just like the one on the wall. (Only that it'd look more like a handsome, hairy bear...)

Beautiful flowers from relatives and a bucket of Ramlösa carbonated water. I liked the citrus-flavored ones. 

The cake was yummy! Bear Mom got it from Haglunds Konditori. I was quite good at dividing up the cake for all 15 guests haha!

My two new-found friends and the grand piano...

It was fun meeting with Mr Bear's uncles and aunts, his cousins and their girlfriends! His sister is the spitting image of Pippy Långstrump, and Bear Mom and Bear Dad looked splendid. The weather's toppen (excellent, super). The food was very good, and best of all was the company!
