You're right, she must have been 3 months along. They married on January 23rd and Alexandra was born on July 20th.

Stephanie did not attend their wedding, but I don't know the reason for this... Maybe someone else knows....

One little addition, seems as if you do not have it in your collection yet, tbhrc :)


(OGGI)

As to Steph: There were pics published that showed her in the mountains at those days. But that's no real proof and I think we'll never get to know the real reason for her absence..

as far as I know Stephanie did not attend the wedding as "payback" because Caroline did not visit her in the hospital when she delivered her 3rd child Camille.
Great pictures of the civil ceremony- Never saw them before.

Poor Chantal Hochuli, tht's always my initial thought when I think of this marriage.
I mean, there are so many men in the world, but no, Caroline went out and had to steal a good friend's husband. With Caroline's experience of tragedy, one would think she has more empathy for her friends! Then again, I would love to one day hear HER side of the story!

Caroline's wedding with Junot had been "annuled" and Ernst was married according to the protestant church. Why they could no wed to the church??

Maybe she did not want to have a church wedding as it was her 3rd marriage. Or maybe because she was already 3mos pregnant. Or maybe because she did not want to make such a big to do about it.
I don't think it was so much the fact that she "could not" have a church wedding, I think it was more likely that she "did not" want to have a church wedding.
