We kicked it off | Sylvana and Hannes | Achensee

Today we are super excited to share with you our first European summer wedding for the 2012 season. For this, please let us assume that mid of April is the start of our summer even if the temperatures are far away from that. However, we really had luck this weekend if you remember what the weather forecast was saying.

We met Sylvana and Hannes, a wonderful Styria-Tyrol couple, weeks back here in Munich and we immediately had a lot in common. Specially Hannes and Ingo, both loving “Weißbier”. So what could go wrong with this combination? Right, nothing!

Sylvana loved the planning process of her wedding and if you look at all the details and love these guys have put into this event, you might think they have planned it for years. But no, that was, in wedding-time, very short notice!

Firday, first day the official part took place. The civil ceremony in Hall i.T. with Family and close friends only. Right there we knew this is going to be a fun wedding. Very interesting characters even from the US came to celebrate this day of love.

We had a very early wake up call on Saturday and we where almost freezing our a** off in the morning. It had 5 degrees and we could see a lot of snow through the big fog and clouds. It was raining.

It was actually the third time that we have been in Achenkirch (Sporthotel Achensee and Seealm) but it was also the third time that we were worrying about the weather. And this has nothing to do with April. Snow in the Tyrolian mountains can show up right in middle of Summer. But big advantage of this area, it’s still very beautiful. Even without sun!

And we were totally lucky with the shootings and happenings outdoors. Even that it was cold we saw sun and did not had rain at all.

Sylvana and Hannes did an amazing job during the shooting. They were totally patient with and we did not hear any complains regards the temperature.

Everything played so well for them. What we found very special and we totally loved, was the fact that they had their wedding in a church but where allowed to use a wedding speaker to hold the ceremony rather than a religious person. Brigit Grafinger was doing a perfect job and making the ceremony very intimated and also super fun for everyone. We have not counted it but from this wedding we had the most laughing shots from a ceremony in a church. We loved it!

The Seealm is the only location so far we have been three times working with and now it’s proven: The service, staff and food is amazing! We love this location because it has a great option to make a change after the dinner, and we have seen 100% party during the weddings there.

The Candi Funbox came with us too and everyone had great fun taking pictures and being goofy.

So here is to thank our wonderful couple for having us. We are very sure this was not the last time we met and we want to wish you all the best for the future. Have a great honey moon and we talk to you soon!

All the best from Munich

    Great photography of a great day. It’s not that hard to take a few good pictures, but telling the whole story of this special day is really hard. But this is a wonderful story <3 You did a perfect job guys! Love it.
