Andrea and Stefan, who know and love each other since their college days, recently tied the knot in one of Austria´s most beautiful castles named Schloss Walpersdorf. What makes this location perfect for a wedding is the fact that it offers everything you need: a wonderful garden where the guests enjoyed a delicious welcome cocktail in the shade of the trees, a gorgeous little chapel where the couple got married and an amazing ball room where the party was celebrated after the dinner was served.
Their berry-tone color palette of this elegant wedding at Schloss Walpersdorf was perfectly matching the new season at the beginning of September. This is the time in Austria when blackberries acquire maturity, grapes get picked and fresh figs and plums are sold. I think it was a great idea that the talented Raphaela and her team continued this theme within the wedding design and decoration. Everything looked harmonious and elegant, the ball room was lovingly laid and the flower decoration on the tables mirrored Andrea´s bridal bouquet.
The bride looked stunning in her dress by Sposa Toscana, so I found it understandable that Stefan couldn´t keep his eyes off Andrea. Andrea is a stickler for details with a special sense for beauty. She was very involved into the process of decoration and design, created their invitation cards and thought about unique favors for the guests. The key (to luck) recurred on the invitations, the favors and even when throwing the bridal bouquet into the crowd of single ladies was on the agenda the key played an important part. Everyone of the girls was asked to pick out one of the keys not knowing which of them will open the chest that guarded the bouquet. What a nice way to “throw the bouquet”! I personally loved this idea!
But let´s get back to their wedding day! After an emotional and private first look they got married in the chapel surrounded by their families and friends, followed by heartfelt congratulations in the beautiful castle garden. After they cut the cake their guests let balloons fly before they were led into the adorably laid ball room for dinner. Emotional speeches, a romantic first dance and partying guests guaranteed this day an unforgettable finale. Enjoy watching my favourite images of this elegant wedding at Schloss Walpersdorf !
