Love & Proposal Story
Alice & Jan met at a skiing event in Austria, and it was love at first sight. On a beautiful summer day in July, Jan rented a boat at Hallstatt/Austria, and proposed in the middle of Hallstatt Lake when the church bell started ringing at 6pm.
Thoughts from the couple
Alice & Jan: Our guests arrived from many different coutnries: our families came from Italy and Poland, and our friends from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, USA, Ukraine, Hungary, France, Croatia, Peru and the Philippines. It was very important to us to make sure that all our guests felt comfortable on our wedding day.
We also wanted our wedding to be very romantic and dreamy, so we picked the gorgeous Hetzendorf Castle, located in the heart of Vienna City, to be our ceremony venue.
We are glad that the entire day was filled with joy, excitement, and never-ending love!
