From Moskow to Salzburg with Love | Galina and Fritz

We might not find enough space here on our blog to write everything we liked on this wedding. Also we might overload you with many pictures and we kindly ask you to forgive us but it was hard to show less. So here is our last weekends wedding and the story about Galina and Fritz who are one of the sweetest couple ever!

We first got contacted by Daniela Kainz Weddings last year as she was helping the couple organize their wedding and also is part of the amazing team at Kavalierhaus Salzburg. We already guessed that an Austrian Russian Wedding will be a superb event and a lot of things will happen.

After getting to know Galina and Fritz during a Skype talk and also hearing their “traveling the world” story and what they have experienced during the last 6 years, we almost could not wait for the big day to come. During this video chat sessions, we really laughed a lot which mostly is the best sign that all four of us have a common sense of humor. During the day, it was so easy for us to make either one of them, or later both, have fun and be how they just normally are.

And then the kissing! We literally could not get a single shot of them where their lips are not attached to each other. Sure that is also a result of the “Gorka, Gorka, Gorka” shouting’s from the guests. (Russian friends, please let us know if we did understand that wrong :-)

So, as said, kissing and drinking Vodka looks like the main activities for bride and groom but there is more. We experienced a very harmonic reception with a lot of Russian traditions as well as emotional speeches from both sides. The mixture of the German and Russian moderation was super fun and gave the entire party a wonderful flare.

What was significant for this wedding was, that once the dancing officially started, almost everyone went out to shake their bodies off and just have a good time with each other. We also brought the Candi Funbox and you bet that these pictures will need some censorship before distributing to the guests :-)

We left a little after the wonderful firework, which was the only time where rain messed the thing a little up but generally the weather could not have been better that day.

Galina and Fritz as well as their guests where up very early again for the next day as they planed a fantastic trip to Winterstellgut and we were more than honored to be part of that day too. Specially the way Ingo could take was a one time moment. A friend gifted Galina and Fritz a Helicopter flight to the Alm and sure someone gotta take pictures too :-)

Needless to say, that a SLK as a wedding gift is more then a perfect present for a bride. So here is to learn something from Fritz how to make presents!

Sitting here and writing/editing these wedding makes us happy to have the best job in the world. We are in love with Russian/Austrian weddings. Thank you to the wonderful and super nice couple for letting us be part of your special day! We wish you all the best and we are looking forward to see you soon again!


Love from Munich

Carmen and Ingo

    Hej Ingo,
    “Gorko” heisst bitter. Die Speisen sind also bitter für die Gäste und man muss Sie mit dem Kuss versüssen :).
    Das Photo mit dem Papa im Auto gefällt mir ab besten.
    Viele Grüße,
