Intimate Summer Wedding in Prague

I had the opportunity to visit Prague this summer and haven’t stopped thinking about it since. The city has a bit of magic and this elegant affair captured that spirit beautifully. With Stepan Vrzala behind the lens and Exclusive Weddings in Prague coordinating it all, the finished result is breathtaking. So excuse me while I gaze longingly through this gallery and remember all the love within those city walls.

From The Bride… We wanted our wedding to be an intimate family and close friends affair but we still wanted it to be fun. We chose Prague in Czech Republic for our wedding because we’ve visited this city a few times before and were always fascinated by its beauty. It’s so romantic and perfect for a wedding. I am originally from Slovakia, a neighboring country to Czech Republic so Prague was a great location for my family and the guests coming from the United States to meet and celebrate together. Choosing our venue was a lot harder though. There’s so many beautiful gardens, hotels, and castles to choose from. Unfortunately, due to our busy schedules we were unable to travel to Prague and see venues in person before the wedding. So we chose a wedding agency that has a lot of experience planning weddings in Prague to help us make all the arrangements. This was unbeatably one of the best decisions we’ve made and we highly recommend to have a local wedding planner to anyone planning a destination wedding. After a year of long-distance planning, Skyping and hundreds of emails we were both very anxious to see it all come together when we arrived in Prague. Most importantly, we could not wait to see our venue, the Augustine Hotel. I remember how nervous I was the day we went to see it. Once we got there I was both relieved and even more excited for the wedding. The venue was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and it felt intimate just as we wished. The small hotel near the Prague Castle has a rich history dating back to the 13th century. It consists of seven buildings surrounding the Saint Thomas Church and Monastery. A few practicing friars still live in an adjoining quarter. Underneath the hotel is a small brewery making the Saint Thomas beer which was served at our reception. Our ceremony took place in an intimately enclosed Sundial garden, followed by a cocktail reception. My husband and I went to take pictures by the nearby Charles River and in the Wallenstein garden. The dinner took place in a cloistered terrace and was followed by our first dance to Michael Buble’s “Can’t help Falling in Love” underneath a 19th century Baroque fresco ceiling of the Litchfield bar. Even though we only had little bit over 30 guests we had lots of fun on the dance floor. Our DJ really did a great job at keeping us dancing. For us a small wedding worked out great and we loved that we were surrounded by our dearest family and friends and had a chance to talk to everyone. This was something that felt true to us and was the most favorite thing about the wedding.

Czech Republic Bohemian Barn Wedding

Not only do I want to pin this entire gallery from Stepan Vrzala, but it’s one of those weddings you just know was fabulous to attend. From being greeted with homemade lemonade to witnessing the stunning sunlit ceremony to the beautiful candlelit barn reception, every moment of this boho soiree was planned to perfection by the team at The White Agency. And they nailed it. See more right here.

From The White AgencyMartina & Chris’s wedding was every wedding planner’s dream come true. It was a perfect cocktail of Italian passion, Canadian humor and the best of Czech. Martina & Chris are from Canada, with roots in Italy and the Czech Republic. Nearly 90 weddings guests flew in for their June wedding from around the world.

Since Martina & Chris have both strong connections with the Czech Republic, having their wedding here was a natural choice. They knew they wanted a luxury barn wedding not far from Prague and The Stork’s nest farm we recommended met all their requirements. Personally, we love this venue so much, that we secretly want to move there. As the farm’s logo says, it truly is “A place with a special spirit”.

The theme of the wedding was a Country chic elegance and colours were white, pale pink, peachy and “eucalyptus” green shades with golden and silver accessories. There was lot of wood, beautiful lace, vintage frames, succulents and a gorgeous lighting. Both natural (just look at the photos) and artificial. Vintage glowing chandelier floating above the sweethearts dinner was such a perfect touch.

A special spirit was with us since the early morning when Martina started her wedding day with a bit yoga by the lake. Watching Martina from the distance calmly breathing and performing the most incredible yoga poses (Martina is a yoga teacher) it felt like the buzz of the wedding preparations has stopped for a minute.

It was a hot summer day and the guests were refreshed by home made lemonades before the ceremony. Everyone walking together to the ceremony spot with the groom holding his parents hands leading the procession was one of our favorite moments of the day.

The ceremony spot underneath a tree was magical. Martina, looking oh-so-pretty in her boho wedding dress and flowy hairstyle walked down to a Rolling Stones song “She’s a rainbow” sang by a live band. Well, there is another moment of the day that will stick with us for a while.

Martina & Chris are not only a stunning couple but they obviously know how to throw a party. One of the best wedding idea ever is to start off the wedding reception with dancing. Why to wait till the end of the meal! The dance with all the guests (A little party never killed nobody) kicked the party off in a style. Despite the reception tables in the barn looked amazing decorated with eucalyptus wreaths and mix of flowers with peonies being the dominant flower, the newlyweds did not want for their guests to be sitting for too long.

We loved everything about this truly boho wedding. The dances, the little favours for the guests (personalized home made local honey and strong Czech liqueur Slivovice), guests having so much fun taking pictures in a photo booth, the cake (oh my, the cake!). the amazing sun-set light. The Johnny Cash song the band played during the ceremony. The Groomsmen matching socks. Cute home-made mascarpone jars for the sweetbar. The fact that this amazing group of people met during several pre-wedding events to enjoy more time together- one of them taking place in a Prague vineyard. Most of all we loved that the Bride and Groom looked really really happy on their wedding day.

Romantic Chateau Mcely Wedding

As spring slips through our fingers, I can’t help but want to linger in the season just a bit longer. The freshness of pastel blooms and the sweet spring air make my heart skip a beat. And thanks to White Agency and Petr Pelucha, we can all soak up the crisp days for as long as we please in this lovely gallery!

From White Agency… From the beginning it was meant to be a Fairy tale; she is from Belarus, he is from Paraguay. They are both lovers of Classical Music. They had octet playing for their Castle wedding ceremony at Chateau Mcely last spring. This year they will be coming back to this lovely Chateau nearby Prague where the same octet will be playing for their anniversary. Meet beautiful Natalia & Javier.

We couldn’t think of better match for their wedding venue than our favorite Chateau Mcely, green five star hotel in Czech Republic. The Castle surrounded by St. George Forest and large English park it’s an ideal location for weddings providing privacy and perfect background for the wedding theme…

The theme was “Fresh Spring Wedding”. The color scheme on their big day was soft pastel colors, with peonies scattered throughout the venue and Bridal Party. As an added touch we had the Bride and Groom’s initials on the arrival gate, along with white love hearts elegantly placed along the drive way in the sun kissed grass. One of the main highlights of the wedding decoration was an amazing full in-blossom arch.

The Bridal dress was from Yunona says the bride… “A small wedding salon near my home (Minsk, Belorusia). They design and make their own dresses, and I always knew I will buy one from them when my time comes. I noticed that very dress right when I came to the salon and it was there for a few weeks while I hesitated, so it “waited” for me although it was put on display as one of the best new dresses they offered.”

Natalia was wearing natural Indian pearls as her jewelry and a perfect touch to her already flawless look was a large peony complimenting her hair style. Music was an important part of the wedding – the wind instruments were playing when the guests arrived to the Chateau from Prague, while they were getting unique herb liquor as a welcome drink. The ceremony took place on the Castle patio where the string quartet played first for the guest arrival followed by full octec for the Bride’s entrance. Chateau Mcely has great reputation for the culinary expertise. Therefore we suggested seven course degustation menu which was truly an experience for everyone.

Natalie & Javier did not want their guests to get bored while they had their portrait session, so we have arranged a very entertaining micro magician for them. Photo booth was a big hit for all the guests – with different fun props for them to use and with an option to leave messages to the newlyweds. The favors for the guests were cuddly racoons toys – this had a special meaning to the bride and groom and had to become one of the wedding element.

The highlight of the evening came after dinner. Honestly how would you react if all of the sudden the waiter who served you the whole evening started dancing together with the hostess who seemed to be the part of the Chateau staff. This special performance was prepared by talented artist Czech artists living in US. And then the wedding party started with a cover band music and the best DJ in a town. Wonderful cake and candy bar made a sweet point at the end. It was fairy tale wedding full love, music and fresh flowers.
