Vintage Inspired Weddings
A Winter Wonderland Wedding from Austria
Photography - Greg Finck
The last post before breaking for the holidays, and what a stunner it is! Because when it comes to describing Magdalena and Sebastian’s wedding, magical would be an understatement. From the couple’s timeless style and their historical church ceremony, to the chandelier & candlelit palace reception, not to mention the snow dusted backdrop of Salzburg, it is the epitome of a chic Winter wedding…..
Here’s a few words about the couple and their stunning celebration….. “It was love at first sight when Magdalena and Sebastian met. Serendipity was the phenomenon that united them. Their winter tale wedding happened in the most musical and romantic city of Austria, Salzburg. And not in any Palace, it was the Sound of Music Palace – Schloss Leopoldskron.
The ceremony was held in the historical St. Peter’s Abbey, a Benedictine monastery and former cathedral. Followed by the cake cutting and first toast at The Stiftskeller nearby the church. Christmas and love was definitely in the air. A breathe-taking winter wedding filled with romance, elegance, happiness and togetherness.
The Leopoldskron Palace’s lake was frozen and set a very special scenery for the couple shoot. The flowers were designed to both enhance and stand out from the winter scenes: Organic Christmas and love feelings with white, green, deep purple, deep red, and Marsala tones.”
So if you’re recently engaged and wondering what season to get wed, or if you’re already think a Winter wedding might be for you, sit back and soak up every beautiful moment – and have your pinning finger at the ready before scrolling any further!
Isn’t it just perfection?? The snowy backdrop, the flowers, the Christmassy color palette, the venues….. everything! As always a heartfelt thankyou to the happy couple Magdalena and Sebastian for allowing me to share their magical day, and to their photographer Greg Finck for capturing is all so exquisitely!
