A Luxury Persian Wedding Weekend in Europe Fit for the Royals

William and Kate who? This gorgeous couple’s weekend in Vienna is rivaling the royal wedding. A grand palace venue, three long banquet tables that will make your jaw drop, and steal-worthy centerpieces from Zweigstelle. The entire weekend was planned to perfection by A Very Beloved Wedding and captured by Sotiris Tsakanikas. For all the can’t miss details from their day, head on over to the full gallery and get inspired!

From A Very Beloved Wedding Sophia and Ehsan are a couple to remember. They met at Yoga class and their life has been that Zen ever since. Both are lovers of good food, travels, water, Rumi and life memories. Their relationship has many aspects in common with the city they got married in: Vienna. It is strong, dreamy, refined, mystical, magical, unpredictable, filled with romance and meant to be. All these elements where incorporated in the Design of the welcome event, the ceremony, and the reception, creating first a vivid, fun, elegant and romantic experience and then a second a chic, sophisticated, floaty, and clear experience. 

The ceremony took place in the mirror salon on a mirrored table with crystal clear décor, a Persian traditional Sofreh with symbolic elements, dispersed flowers and candle lights. The Welcome Event and Ceremony venue, Palais Coburg, is a former bastion built in the 16th century and renovated in neoclassicist style in the 19th century. The historic rooms are of diverse interior design filled with gold leaves and stucco marble pillars. Colorful, vivid, fun, young, contrasting the imperiality of the historic palace. We made use of burgundy, emerald green, yellow, grapefruit pink and blush. It was a fun evening for gathering old friends and family all together to witness the traditional ceremony and to toast on the couple’s behalf. A colorful, fun, and young night, full of contrasts and interesting moments. The floral design gave a reminiscence of festivity, grandness, timeless beauty, leaving a great impact in the memories of the couple and their guests. Guests enjoyed the historic rooms, the terrace and the garden. Crème baroque furniture was displayed on the terrace with flowers and candles.

The garden was magical, with candle lights everywhere to generate a romantic feeling. As guests entered through the garden we displayed the wedding weekend program with greens. After the ceremony and cocktail guests were guided to the original wine cellar of the Palace where the party took place. The Reception venue on the next day was the Garden Palace Liechtenstein. Over 300 years, as part of the princely family of Liechtenstein, the Palace is deeply rooted in Vienna’s history. It is a perfect symbiosis of history, art, and nature. Baroque interiors, artful frescos, and a dreamy garden make this place memorable and honest. The private art collection shows masterpieces of Rubens, Raphael, and Rembrandt. Among others, amazingly artful furniture is also displayed. Among the antique furniture of the collection, the most expensive piece of furniture in the world can be found there. It is an armoire decorated with the most precious gems. 

The dinner took place outdoors in the princely gardens of Liechtenstein, among diverse greens, roses, trees, and a beautiful lake. The color palette of the reception was greyish blue, crème and all in all soft, elegant and chic. We used clear and light elements, giving a reminiscence to water. After arrival at the Garden Palace Liechtenstein, the guests were guided to the cocktail in the Hercules room. Lounge furniture and flower décor were displayed. While guests were enjoying finger food and drinks, they were able to visit the Museum’s pieces of art. The groom together with the guests welcomed the bride and her family at the entrance area. Afterwards, the dinner took place in the beautiful rose gardens of Liechtenstein Garden Palace, surrounded by architectural sophisticated greens and flowers. A lake shadowed by an old, big tree that has been part of the palace for many centuries will be the backdrop of this dinner. The tables were long creating a royal outdoor feeling, the linen greyish blue and the flowers romantic. The cutlery was of old silver, the crystal-clear charger plates, and the glasses with clear lines, created a sense of lightness. The candles were of diverse heights and of glass. The party started after the cutting of the cake surrounding and historic horse carriage.

This Underrated Destination Wedding Locale in Europe Is a Music Lover’s Dream

If you ask us, Vienna is one of the most underrated wedding destinations in the world – it’s teeming with old world charm, inspiring art and most of all… the sound of music. It is coined the “City of Music” after all, with big names such as Mozart, Beethoven, and Straub who have filled the city with beauty at every turn. Not to mention our personal favorite – Julie Andrews ;) Today’s wedding is centered around the timeless tale of music and love in the city of Vienna. And lucky for us, we get to live vicariously through their unforgettable wedding weekend at the full gallery – all captured by Stefanie Kapra Photography and planned by A Very Beloved Wedding.

From A Very Beloved WeddingLea and Avo complement each other in every way. He`s a vivid spirit with a wonderful aura and energy, a talented violinist and warm soul. She is a big hearted and incredibly unique lady, with a talent for understanding and living the world’s reality. Both are lovers of art, of history and especially music. That is how they decided to get married in the City of Music: Vienna. Big names, such as Mozart, Beethoven, Strauß and many more extraordinary musicians have filled this city with joy, love and change. Being in Vienna makes you experience art and music in each and every corner. Getting married in Vienna, like Lea and Avo did, makes you experience the timeless and forever lasting notes of the biggest musicians transform in this timeless love. 

Lea’s and Avo’s wedding theme was all about music and art. It was an elegant yet young wedding, refined and warm, traditional yet simply original, memorable, sharing, surprising, entertaining, and graceful. A unique experience full of love and beauty. A romantic fusion between art, traditional elegance, and entertaining originality. Lea and Avo’s wedding had colors of white, grey, soft and blush purple/blue. White stands for the pureness, honesty and meaningful relationship of the couple and the blue/purple/grey stands for their happiness, solidity, fusion, and strength. The flowers were soft and romantic in different shades of whites, greys, purples and greens, depending on where they were displayed. Their design was timeless and grand. We used diverse types of roses and orchids. The stationery was timeless and elegant. It was of fine art Letterpress and 100% cotton paper. The design of the font was classic, such as the Save the dates and the website. The paper color was white and the font color grey with gold ornaments. The design of the ornaments was classic and romantic. The envelopes and additional are calligraphed in gold. The Welcome Event venue was the Natural History Museum is home to world-famous and unique objects, such as the 29,500-year-old Venus of Willendorf, the Steller’s sea cow that became extinct over 200 years ago, and enormous dinosaur skeletons. The museum building opened in 1889 at the same time as the Museum of Art History. The two museums have identical exteriors and face each other across Maria-Theresien-Platz. The Museum was built to house the huge collection of the Habsburgs. Thus the Welcome Event took place at one of Vienna’s most prestigious, original and beautiful History Museums. The stunning façade welcomed the guests and the couple, leading into a round black and white entrance with a gold painted violin performance on a black podium. Lights and sound (violin) transformed the ambience into a festive performance, making reference to the golden Statue of Johann Strauß that is found in one of the most famous parks of Europe “Stadtpark”. The violin player will perform each time guests pass by him. Black and White lounge and bar furniture was displayed on the second floor for guests to enjoy the flying buffet and the Jazz band. Guests were guided to the second floor of the museum. Columns were light, a jazz band was playing on stage, high tables and lounge furniture were displayed. A flying dinner and drinks were served. As per the ceremony venue: for over 300 years, the Garden Palace of the princely family of Liechtenstein is deeply rooted in Vienna’s history. It is a perfect symbiosis of history, art, and nature. Baroque interiors, artful frescos, and a dreamy garden make this place memorable and honest. The private art collection shows masterpieces of Rubens, Raphael, and Rembrandt. Among others, amazingly artful furniture is also displayed. Among the antique furniture of the collection, the most expensive piece of furniture in the world can be found there. It is an armoire decorated with the most precious gems. The ceremony is going to take place outdoors in the princely gardens of Liechtenstein, among diverse greens, roses, trees, and a beautiful lake. 

Guests arrived at the Garden Palace Liechtenstein and were welcomed by a string quartet on the front terrace. A carpet lead to the main entrance. Guests went through the main entrance enjoying one of the 3 Marie Antoinette horse carriages that are left in the world, surrounded by flowers, until arriving to the second terrace and ceremony area. The string quartet turned into an octet in the garden. The ceremony took place in the beautiful rose gardens of Garden Palace Liechtenstein, surrounded by architectural sophisticated greens and flowers. The groom welcomed the guests and was standing together with the 3 priests under the ceremony arch. The bride arrived with her father on a horse carriage. Afterwards she entered with Pachelbel’s Canon in C Dur. After the ceremony, the cocktail took place on the terrace. White baroque furniture was displayed with one bar surrounded by flowers. The Reception Venue was the Royal Palace of the Habsburgs. From the 13th Century up to 1918 the extensive palatial complex at the heart of Vienna was the political center of the Habsburg Monarchy. 

The rooms where house of several Emperors of the monarchy. The beautiful ceiling painting of the main ballroom shows the reign of the Habsburgs, Maximilian I., Karl V., Ferdinand I., Rudolf II. And Ferdinand II. Of Tyrol, Leopold I., Karl VI., Prinz Eugen and King Jan III, Sobieski, and the slogan of the emperor Franz Joseph I “Viribus Unitis”. Guests arrived at the Hofburg enjoying the light façade. After entering they were welcomed in the stairs hallway decorated with a carpet and several flower arrangements. Playing violinists were positioned on the stairway leading the way up to the second floor. Guests received drinks on the hallway in front of the closed ballroom. Background music was playing. The lighting was festive and generated a mood of grandness. The flowers were according to the color palette. As soon as all guests have arrived at the hallway in front of the ballroom on the second floor, the doors of the ballroom opened simultaneously, and guests enjoyed a grand violin concert while getting to their seats. Each table name is a name of an important musician, such as Mozart, Beethoven, Strauß, Bach, Vivaldi, Mendelssohn etc. The couple entered dancing with a light show on stage. The dinner was alternated with dancing. The table setting was elegant, traditional and perfect for the venue and grandness of the day. The cutlery was gold displayed on the sides of a glass charger plates with gold. On the charger plates the napkins with the fine letterpress menus were placed. Tall flowers in glass vases were displayed in the middle of the table, surrounded by low flower arrangements and candles. The table clothes were white as well as the napkin. The menu card was part of the letterpress stationery suite. After the last course, the cake was brought into the center of the dance floor to be cut by the couple with a special knife. The cake was a big white cake with natural flowers and music notes on it. Two bars were part of the big party. The brunch venue was the Schönburg Palace, a baroque Palace from the 15th century built by Johann Lucas von Hildebrandt and belonged to the noble family Starhemberg. The brunch was the perfect closing of this marvelous Vienna Wedding Weekend. In one of Vienna’s most famous private palaces with a private garden we displayed a Monet picnic with diverse food stations, picnic areas, lounge areas and seating tables. Not only the garden was open for the guests, but also the historic rooms at the beletage with antique lounge furniture to match the historic heritage of the rooms. Standing umbrellas, hand umbrellas (for ladies) and fans were also part of the set up in the garden and hand out to the guests. Cool background music was played. An ice cream card and cotton candy cart was in the garden, too.

From the groom…We met four years ago at a professional event at World Bank. We were both working there but in different organizations and happened to have mutual acquaintances. It was not love at first sight but a destiny. Ije was sitting on the opposite, strategic position in the conference room. A friend introduced us to each other and told Ije she stole my chair. She apologized and continued apologizing afterwards. I told her it was okay, but only if she had lunch with me. Some weeks later, we went out for lunch, in the best Indian restaurant in Washington.

From the bride… My first impression: He was very tall, very impressive when he walked into the room….and so charming. Our first date took us a couple of weeks. It was at a lovely Indian restaurant, a very expensive one. We had wine there, too. Time passed by. We met in April and had out first date in May. We also had a lot of smaller dates – jazz night, coffee, etc. Then we had a long distance relationship as I relocated. We kept meeting half way in cities in between. That’s how we ended up in Vienna.

It was clear to us that we needed not only a wedding planner but also a designer, and A Very Beloved Wedding is the perfect team for this. They captured our essence and made the wedding style ours: classic, elegant, rhythmic, and fun. Our wedding was, of course, imperial as we got married in one of the most imperial cities of Europe: Vienna. Our cake was made by the royal patisserie, and our décor was historic and timeless. Vienna is the hidden gem of Europe for us. We fell in love with the city and of course with each other on one of our visits. From then on we knew, we had to get married in Vienna.

Words from the sister of the bride… Alena & Josh are a very special couple. They’ve known each other for a very long time and found their way back to one another in recent years. Their relationship has weathered many storms up to this point, which is a good preparation for what lies ahead in marriage.

Alena is a very special girl – my only sister. She likes pretty things, adores horses and is passionate about helping and caring for others. Josh is a thoughtful man of God who is willing to continuously improve himself and those under his leadership.

I believe through their marriage, their love, their passion and hope for life, their care and their willingness to share their lives – many will find their way back to God, not for religion’s sake but for the transformation of lives and the discovery and fulfillment of purpose. We were blessed to be able to take part in the union of these two lovebirds, and may their love story inspire and encourage us all.

Words from A Very Beloved Wedding… A truly unique couple, with so much love and positive energy for each other and the world that surrounds them with a true conviction to make this world a better place for all of us. Great human beings that will stay in our hearts for ever.

We created a timeless romantic fusion between imperial classic elegance and intimate fun. Both the ceremony and the dinner were held in the place that guards Ruben’s treasures in Vienna: the Garden Palace of Liechtenstein. The dinner took place in the grand baroque Hercules Hall. The colors of the wedding and style of the blooms were chosen to bridge and fusionate the colors found at the classic baroque Garden Palace of Liechtenstein and set the tone of the couple’s loving relationship.

High-Fashion Wedding at an Austrian Palace

Right on the border of Austria and Slovakia lies a magnificent palace that’s the setting of this truly unique wedding day. It’s a style mashup of classic, modern, and eclectic that makes for a one-of-a-kind celebration and we can’t get enough. One of our favorite photographer duos, Peter & Veronika told the story of the day, and we’ve got every moment of this high-fashion lovefest right at your fingertips.

From the bride… Our wedding was everything we could ever dream of. From amazing engagement with an incredible sunset in one of Tuscany’s wineries until the final goodbyes with our closest friends after the wedding party in the early morning. We chose everything to happen close to our new home in Devin, Slovakia, so the place is forever soaked with the memories and atmosphere of this day.

After several weeks of discussions and various options we agreed, that it will be the best to keep the wedding preparations at our new home. However stressful it looked like few days before the wedding, the minute our house started to fill with our family and closest friends, we knew it was the best idea.

For the church ceremony, we decided to be a bit serious – we chose to put the right amount of importance to this day and we went to St Martin’s Cathedral in Bratislava, in which coronations of 11 kings and queens took place, including Maria Theresia of Austro-Hungarian Empire. The ceremony was performed by Monsignore Hajdu, and we will be always thankful to His Eminence for being part of our big day.

The venue – Schlosshof’s Orangerie was just a dream come true. High ceilings, amazing window wall, palm leaves, park with a fountain and all that accompanied by a sunset, champagne, many laughs and light October breeze. It was a true blessing to see all our closest family and friends in this amazing place enjoying themselves, dancing, chatting and laughing.

A very important secret to maintaining the spontaneous feeling of our wedding were many vendors, who happen to be our lovely friends and who made even the preparation perfectly enjoyable at all times – talented and wonderful photographers Peter & Veronika, designer of the wedding dress His Majesty Boris Hanecka and his team, super-cool makeup artist Janka Olsinska and our sweet friend Vanessa, who agreed to be our wedding coordinator and made the day incredibly smooth with a non-stop smile on her face.

From High Emotion WeddingsI am thrilled to present an extremely romantic story in the heart of Vienna, Austria. A thoroughly planned project involving 22 “creme-de-la-creme” of Austria’s wedding industry, aiming to present a small part of the imperial flair of this charming European city. The love story of Olivia and Philip is immortalized right in the famous Sacher Hotel and continues on top of the Albertina Museum with an amazing view over Vienna State Opera.

In our set of photos and the lovely 3 minutes’ video, brides and grooms-to-be can start dreaming about their perfect day in the imperial city of music, with old little streets, opulent castles, art events, delicious cuisine and charming coffee houses.

Our motto: Vienna, Vienna you alone/ will always be the city of my dreams/ there, where I am happy and delirious/ is Vienna, is Vienna, my Vienna (Rudolf Sieczynski).

Next to the breathtaking wedding gowns by Eva Poleschinski, we incorporated some lovely symbols of Vienna thanks to vendors with a long tradition on the Austrian market. For example, our groom has accessories of the FREYWILLE Klimt collection, they dine with porcelain from Augarten and glassware from Lobmeyr. Their initials where carefully embroidered on their napkins by Zur Schwäbischen Jungfrau, and the cake bar is accessorized with laser cut ferry wheels by Die Macherei.

After a highly emotional free ceremony conducted by Herzensworte (English “words from the heart, for the heart”), Olivia Catherine Rosewood and Philip Alexander Carlton dined in the gourmet restaurant Anna Sacher, and enjoyed the oh-so-sweet apple strudels and Guglhupfs – so carefully prepared by Dagmar from KUCHENmitSTIL to round out the Viennese charm. Our couple danced the night away in the marble room of the Sacher Hotel, with waltzer sounds by our very talented quartet Art4Strings.

A Romantic Morning Stroll in Vienna Engagement Session

Is there anything more romantic than a morning walk through the picturesque streets of Vienna hand in hand with your new fiancé? This stunning photoshoot from Peter & Veronika is all our dreams come true and has us wishing we were packing our bags for the next flight to Austria. See more of this stylish couple’s destination engagement session in The Vault!


From The Groom…We planned a trip to southern England to location called seven sisters which is a very beautiful cliff area. To set a good mood I played her video of our memories with romantic music. She cried after that so things were going well that morning. When she is feeling cold I put her hand in the pocket of my jacket. This time ring was suppose to be there. That was the plan. But better opportunity arrived. We just walked up the cliff for the view. Couples left some stones on the ground that they were using to write their love notes. I immediately got an idea and made a sign of ring and our initials…

All the Convincing You’ll Need to Have an E-Sesh in Vienna

Peter & Veronika Photography has completely convinced us that European engagement sessions are the best engagement sessions. Ancient architecture? Check. Crazy chic cafes? Oh you bet. Cobblestone street strolls complete with sweet kisses? Of course. We’re completely in love with every single detail of this gallery and we invite you to get in on the obsession via The Vault!


From The Couple…We met each other about three years ago at work in Vienna. The beginning of our relationship was really turbulent, as we differed – and still differ – about many topics of life. However, we think the same about the “great things” in life and so we decided to get married soon.

With Peter & Veronika we found excellent and lovely photographers, who pictured us in the very heart of Vienna, our hometown, exactly in the style and the mood we felt and wanted it! We really love those pics and used them for the save-the-dates and the wedding invitations! For our actual wedding we found the perfect location which represents a kind of opposite of the old center of Vienna: the fresh, green but still stylish Wiegerova Vila in Svätý Jur in Slovakia. We can’t wait for June!!!

Elegant Autumn Wedding Inspiration

With each glowing autumn day, I fall deeper and deeper in love with the rich colors of this special time of year; the golds, the fading greens and those amazing radiant reds. So when this styled shoot by Melanie Nedelko came across my desk, you could say I was a tad bit extra excited. Filled the brim with those captivating colors and satisfying every single one of my seasonal wedding daydreams, image after image is frame worthy. Jump into the pretty pile in our VAULT to see every single one right here!

From Melanie Nedelko… This styled shoot was a collaboration with some really talented folks from Austria. I’m so proud that I had the chance to work with them and realize my vision of an autumn inspired wedding shoot.

Viki from Lovely Weddings and Timo Bolte, a very talented florist, created a wonderful table setting with different beautiful red tones, mixed with golden and pastel elements. A plain wooden table peppered with costly arranged golden accents forms an exciting contrast to the unemotional location where it becomes a fascinating eye-catcher.

The scenery took place in a rough gravel pit near Vienna, this unique location reflected the golden autumn light perfectly and our beautiful model in her Elfenkleid gown seemed to get one with the background. Our models – they are also a couple in real life – were so cute and did a really great job! It was my second styled shoot ever, and the first that I captured mostly on film. I love the skin tones and the special colors you can only get from film. I hope we can inspire brides with our version of a perfect autumn wedding.

Peruse more autumn weddings + inspiration here!

I love engagement sessions, that’s not a huge secret. But engagement sessions captured by Ksenia Milushkina in Vienna? Well, that makes my love affair with engagement sessions magnify ten fold. This gallery is pure prettiness, and it’s all waiting for you right here.

From Thomas Steibl….When we first met the couple we knew that its going to be a perfect wedding. And it really was an extraordinary day. The getting ready was so full of love and excitement… All the little details were just perfect. They have chosen to marry each other in the garden of the Castle Niederweiden. Thats such a great location, really beautiful. The grooms family travelled all the way to Austria from Germany and part of the bride’s family came all the way down from Russia. The scenery for this very special day was just perfect.

Austria Wedding from Iconoclash Photography

You know what’s refreshing? This wedding day recap from the world’s sweetest groom. Written in his very own words, he spells out the story behind this whimsical Austrian lovefest almost as beautifully as Iconoclash Photography captured. Dive head first into the gallery of pretty right over here.

From the Groom… After having been together for quite some time, I proposed to Cordula during a holiday at the Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro. Grooms, if youre looking for a nice spot to pop the question I can really recommend this place, it was fantastic! We both knew we didn’t want to have a religious ceremony, but we still wanted to have a solemn and festive ceremony with all our friends and family, so we opted for a civil marriage outdoors on the grounds of our location, Palais Laudon. Both during the planning and on the day we were really happy to have the support of our wedding planner Maryam from yam yam Event Productions. She helped us right from the beginning, from the location search to the programme design, and we developed an overall theme and colour scheme together, loosely based on a tropical theme, as we both love to travel and I had proposed in Brazil.

While Maryam took care of all the details we concentrated on the things we enjoyed most, like trying different cakes, picking our clothes, etc. I think this helped us a lot in being relaxed and at ease during the actual wedding day.

Apart from the actual ceremony and exchange of the rings, which was of course a very special moment, one of Cordulas fondest memories was getting ready in the Hotel with her girls. They put on some favourite music and really had fun prettying up, getting professional make-up and hair, and posing for photos.

Another favourite moment was the couple shoot we did with our photographers Teresa and Daniel. Even though they were there photographing us, they managed somehow to make us really feel at ease… We ended up feeling like there was just us, and we got to really enjoy these moments together.

For us, our wedding day was truly a perfect day. It was amazing to feel that everything was just falling into place, and we really got to enjoy and fully live every moment of the day. I wish every couple that they can do just that – live each moment of the day fully and enjoy it!

Viennese Garden Wedding from peaches & mint

I’m not sure I have words to adequately introduce this crazy-gorgeous, and totally handmade, Vienna, Austria wedding. Keeping to a tight budget, the-absolutely beautiful-bride kept the guest list small and started crafting to add sweet details to both ceremony + reception spaces.  If you’re anything like me, you’ll be spending the rest of your morning swooning over every dreamy image from peaches & mint in the full gallery!

From peaches & mint… Ewelina and Christian took only four months to prepare this beautiful, vintage-inspired wedding near Vienna, Austria. They had a small budget to work with, so they kept the guest list to family and close friends and put a lot of their own time in organizing, preparing and creating decorations. Ewelina could really show off her talent for decorating and will in the future help other brides make their weddings more individual and beautiful, a service much underrepresented in Austria.
