I had a special connection with Alex & Peter – not only because the bride and I are very much alike, but also because they are one of the coolest and most relaxed couples I have ever seen. As he came to Vienna in February to check out the venues I had selected, Peter was fascinated by the city. It wasn’t a difficult choice – their perfect location was Hotel Imperial, offering the exact imperial, elegant flair they were looking for.

So, after some pretty cold and rainy May weeks, Alex’ and Peter’s wedding day was warm, sunny, and full of joy and laughter.

The Orthodox ceremony in the impressing Russian Cathedral was followed by an Anglican blessing in Christ Church, a short stop for traditional Wurst, beer and brezel at Salm Bräu, and a romantic walk through the Belvedere gardens, an exquisite dinner in a former palace – Hotel Imperial – and a surprise Viennese walzer lesson for the whole wedding party.

Kurier liked this photo so much, that they also published it in an article dedicated to destination weddings in Vienna, on August 15, 2015. Read the article here.

Guys, I am so happy I met you and got to plan your wonderful imperial day! Also, thank you for the awesome review:

"Irene and her team did a phenomenal job planning and executing our perfect day. I traveled to Vienna in February of 2015 to meet with Irene, she had two full days lined up of appointments with venues and entertainment options. Her follow up was excellent post visit with organized, regularly scheduled calls to ensure everything was on track. She thought of the things you often forget and helped us with every detail. The wedding in May exceeded all expectations and I would highly recommend her company for any wedding/event. She was awesome."
