Working with Marie and Frank was a very special opportunity! They had a really unique, laid-back vibe, and they planned a wonderful wedding celebration, surrounded by their loved ones. It was the perfect storybook wedding!

Marie and Frank were married in a charming castle near Salzburg, Austria. Their wedding was a wonderful celebration amidst the charm of the Alps. Marie and Frank opted for a whole-weekend affair to better celebrate with family and friends, which turned out to be amazing! Their weekend was complete with a traditional Austrian target practice, dining, and lots of dancing. How great would it be if every wedding could be celebrated this way?

Fortunately, the weather was sunny and lovely for Marie and Frank’s wedding weekend, and we were able to capture some beautiful outdoor photos. Photographing a destination wedding in this sort of location is without compare! We were even able to take some classic black-and-whites in an intimate moment when Marie and Frank were surrounded entirely by nature. Their joy is palpable in these photos!

With a castle as your reception site, your wedding is bound to be spectacular. It was such an amazing addition to the photographs captured of Marie and Frank’s wedding weekend! Wide-plank hardwood floors, soaring vaulted ceilings, stone pillars, and white-stuccoed walls presented the perfect backdrop for dinner and dancing. The DJ brought a shining disco ball, which threw colors across the walls of the whitewashed vaults, bringing the castle’s magic to life. Wall sconces and fascinating ancient details abounded throughout the castle—it’s not every day that weddings feel so regal! Marie and Frank had opted for a mid-sized wedding, complete with friends and family of all ages. All of the photographs captured of the dance floor revealed a joyful, close-knit group having a wonderful time, a testament to the great group of guests Marie and Frank assembled!

Outside, we were able to capture some shots of Marie and Frank walking towards charming mountainside homes and beaming with their son Leo in front of a rustic stone wall. They radiated such happiness in all of their photographs, which is no surprise–the beauty of the location and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate a marriage surrounded by those you love can’t be put into words!

Marie’s gown, in a classic lace style with a row of buttons up the back, beautifully complemented her pearl bracelet and drop earrings. She was so elegant and classic! Marie’s hair was also beautiful in an updo. Her style meshed so well with the grace of the castle. Frank wore a fitted blue-gray suit and silver tie, which fit right in with the casual yet elegant theme. Both Marie and Frank accessorized with beautiful pink flowers, which seemed to fit right in with the natural beauty of the Alps! Leo was also present for the festivities and charmed in his miniature lederhosen. He was such a happy baby, always laughing and smiling for the camera! Leo was so much fun!

Marie and Frank’s reception space was really well-appointed, with white floor-length table linens, vases containing pink and white floral arrangements, and cream-colored candles. Their decor accentuated the castle’s antiquated elegance in a beautiful, understated way. It was perfect!

When we photographed guests during the reception, the smiles on their faces said it all! Marie and Frank planned a beautiful wedding weekend, perfect for their guests. If looking through the gallery of their photographs is any indication, it was a perfect wedding weekend for the happy couple as well! We were so glad to be a part of it!
