From their wedding planner, A Very Beloved Wedding… Farah and Mark complement each other in every way. He`s a cautious thinker, with a pragmatic sense of the world and a loving husband to be. She is a vivid spirit, big hearted and elegant lady. Together they are strong, fun, lucky, vivid and compatible. Their wedding was romantic, dreamy, timeless, and elegant. It was all about the romance found in flowers and in love stories such as “The Sound of Music”. Thus, the floral element and the emphasize of the musical in several details was very important.
The wedding’s hashtag was #FarahEverMoses. The venue, Schloss Leopoldskron is a rococo palace build in the 18th century by Archbishop of Salzburg Count Leopold Anton von Firmian. It is surrounded by a wide park with an amazing view from the romantic garden on the lake Leopoldskron. This palace is one of the world most famous places, due to the musical “The Sound of Music”. The color palette was romantic and dreamy, with light pastel colors, sage, blush, soft whites, cremes, ivory, and touches of gold.
The grandness of the venue with elements such as marble and stone were softened by romantic touches of colors and flowers. The ceremony took place between the legendary horses with the beautiful lake as a backdrop. To welcome the guests to the ceremony a sign in an antique gold frame was placed on a wooden easel, mentioning the hashtag #FarahEverMoses and the words “Pick a seat not a side.” Guests enjoyed a get together and greet the couple in the garden and terrace area of Leopoldskron, close to the ceremony. Garden furniture with pillows and romantic flower arrangements on the tables made the festive décor highlights of the cocktail complete. A sign in a gold antique frame on an easel described the program of the day and mentioned the hashtag #FarahEverMoses. The seating chart was placed on an easel and had the title “Sounds like love” according to the Sound of Music theme and also some ornaments of the stationery according to the floral theme. The hashtag was also mentioned. The chart itself was adorned with flowers and greens and presented during the cocktail.
The dinner took place in the main salon of the palace among marble columns, gold stucco and golden chairs. Flowers diverse heights where placed, saluting the ceiling, in gold vases. The setting was classic and dreamy, with blush tablecloths and ivory napkins of French brocade. The tall and big candles in nude/blush are in gold candle holders of diverse heights or on the tablecloth to create a sense of movement, the cutlery was matt gold. The table names of the letterpress flowery stationery suite where also displayed on the table. Letterpress menus where placed on the folded napkins on the charger plates. The glassware was classic with gold. The table names recreated the Sound of music theme “a few of my favorite things”: e. g. Raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles, warm woolen mittens, cream-colored ponies, crisp apple strudels, silver-white winters, schnitzel with noodles, doorbells and sleigh bells.
After the last course, the cake was cut in the Venetian room and served together with other sweets on a round sweet table. The room was filled with mirrors, candles, paintings, and gold. After the bride changes her outfit the party starts downstairs with party light and candle light. An open bar was also displayed indoors. The stationery was timeless and elegant. It is of fine art Letterpress and 100% cotton paper. The design of the font is classic, and the ornaments are floral. The give aways where heart shaped cups of tea with the signs “Keep love brewing” on them. They were presented with blush and white flowers on antique table during the party.
