Because every good winter wonderland destination wedding starts with a wow welcome evening on top of the snowy mountains.
From Canada and The Netherlands to Tyrol, Austria – KARINA & STEFAN
Part 1. The Welcome Cocktail Evening
The best way to start a brilliant destination wedding? A brilliant welcome evening! Or maybe two.
Karina and Stefan opted for a welcome dinner with their closest family on the day of their arrival, the Thursday before the wedding. A very cosy outdoor apres-ski bar area at Mocking. Das Wirtshaus was beautifully decorated by Kunstgärtnerei Doll, again with fir trees, fairy lights, lanterns with candles, and pine cones. A short reception with roast chestnuts and hot winter cocktails was followed by an intimate dinner.
After a super successful kick-off of the wedding celebrations, the Friday evening brought a cocktail reception for all guests, up on the ski slopes, at a very hip mountain cabin – Ganslern Alm, with spectacular views over Kitzbühel. Fairy lights curtains as photo backdrop, horn players, roasting marshmallows by the fire and a traditional Austrian game (“Nagelstock” a.k.a. nail hammering challenge) were just a few of the highlights of the evening.
If I could do it all again, I wouldn’t change a thing! – we selected Irene and Mihai based on the fantastic reviews- and let me tell you they did NOT disappoint! They both arranged 3 parties for us. Rehearsal dinner, a cocktail party and the wedding. The attention to detail on everything was just totally worth it! My husband and I did actually very little throughout the processs- so we really had no idea how anything would turn out. Well. It was better then I could have imagined. Irene did a lot of the picking and choosing herself ( great taste!!) and everything was just so well taken care of. If you are looking for a wedding planner Irene is just amazing – listen to her advice too! I learned she is always right about everything!! Throughout the process Mihai and Irene were at the helm of the ship, and they just did a brilliant job. All of our guests were thrilled, and we had the most beautiful wedding. Like a fairytale! Thank you so much HIGH EMOTION WEDDINGS!!!!!
While wishing the couple all the very best for their future together and of course thanking them for their trust and the thrill of putting together their beautiful destination winter wedding in Austria, we are forever grateful to the amazing team of vendors that made it all come true with such passion and dedication.
