Since my first meeting with Sabi and Daniel in Vienna I was looking forward to their vineyard wedding in Styria at Harkamp this July. From the very beginning I found them a totally likable couple. We spent a wonderful afternoon with delicious food at the café Rochus and enjoyed some cool drinks. In doing so the two told me about their beautiful love story and Daniel´s perfectly planned proposal in Vienna. At the end of the day I already took them into my heart and I knew that their big day was going to be something very special.
When I arrived in Saint Nikolai in the Sausal the evening before the wedding I was overwhelmed by the amazing nature that surrounded me: a hilly landscape seamed by vineyards and apple trees. I couldn’t wait to climb out of my bed the next day to capture Sabi´s and Daniel’s big day on my camera.
Together with their closest friends the two got ready at the Harkamp winery. All of Sabi´s bridesmaids wore mint colored dresses and carried a little bouquet of baby´s breath in their hands. Like a golden thread the colors peach and mint ran through the entire decoration that day. With the help of their friends the bridal couple planned and decorated everything on their own. Their invitation cards, the table decoration and even the cabinet full of sweets were just some of their DIY items. Everyone could see and feel how much love Sabi and Daniel put into this special day.
The weather was perfect as the sun shined throughout the day. Their open-air ceremony in between the vines was emotional and sincere. Even I wept some tears of joy when all the guests sang “Applaus, Applaus” for Sabi and Daniel. After their moving vows we headed down the hill passing the Klappotetz for their gorgeous wedding cake. Afterwards I took them out into the nature for our shooting before dinner was served and wonderful speeches were held. After dinner we all climbed onto the roof to enjoy the best view on the spectacular fireworks.
Sabi´s and Daniel’s wedding at the Harkamp winery was definitely one of my highlights this summer and I will always keep them in loving memory.
