A cozy & wintry destination wedding in the The Austrian Alps (with a dirndl dress!)

Laura and Patrick had an Austrian destination wedding that was incandescent. They traveled from the U.S. to their favorite little village in the Austrian Alps. They bonded over their mutual travels and their shared love of a town called Hopfgarten. It eventually became the venue for their wedding. Patrick stumbled upon Berggasthof Tenn while traveling and immediately knew it was the right venue. Laura agreed and it was off to the races with planning.

A majestic Irish castle wedding with death metal & sword-bearing protectors

We both love castles and Irish history, and Craig wanted to have a death metal band play, so we found somewhere where that was possible, and arranged everything around that. We didn’t have a specific theme, but the castle definitely inspired some elements of our wedding. We decided to include our two swords in the day as there is a Viking tradition to exchange swords at your wedding as a promise to protect each other.

Don't miss the greenery shawl at this Mid-Century Modern wedding right in the middle of a strawberry field

If there's ever a universally loved style era, it's Mid-Century Modern of the '50s and '60s. Charles and Ray Eames, groove, natural, themes, and major color make it so iconic from graphic design to architecture, interior design, and fashion. This Portugal wedding shoot was inspired by it all and features bright flowers, a retro-inspired dress, and a delightfully pop cake with matching paperie, all in the middle of a strawberry field.

But wait, is that a shawl made of greenery and flowers?! Yes, yes it is. And it's AMAZING…
