Austria currently sits at the tippy top of my travel list, and it only takes one look at this beauty by Nate Henderson to see why. The beautiful country set the scene for this couple’s love story, making it the perfect place to start their next chapter. And with the Castle Steyregg providing a stunning setting and gorgeous details abound, it’s safe to say they started that next chapter in style. See it all here.

From Nate HendersonBarbara and John met in May of 2009 when he did a study abroad in Linz, Austria and Prague, Czech Republic for his graduate studies. Their first encounter was on Linz city square in the cafe in front of the Hotel Wolfinger. The rest is history as they continued to date, then Barbara moved to the US. But they had decided from the beginning to go back to Austria for the wedding!

Barbara prepared for the wedding day at the Hotel am Domplatz, just a stone’s throw from the famous Cathedral of the Virgin Mary in Linz. She and John met for a first look in front of the cathedral, before they headed for the ceremony at Pöstlingberg Church, a gorgeous setting on a hill just outside the city. After the ceremony, the guests were treated to a cocktail hour and reception at the large banquet hall inside of Steyregg Castle (which dates back to medieval times).
