Relaxed Chic Wedding Reception

Stephanie & Bernhard // September 12, 2014
Graz, Austria

Stephanie and Bernhard, two dear Austrian friends, decided to tie the knot in a beautiful and less-ordinary fashion. The two rented a gorgeous retro bus to pick up their attendants on the city's main square. After boarding the bus, we were all given a bag of goodies, & were told that we would be driving to an unknown location to meet the bride and groom. About 25 minutes into the journey, we spotted the two having a picnic under a tree on the side of the road. We picked them up, drove a bit further, and picked up another woman, who jumped on board. Before we knew it, the woman had started in with the intimate ceremony. Stephanie and Bernhard were married right then and there, exchanging rings with each other, and their sweet two year old daughter. 

I had the honor of photographing their wedding reception, located in a champagne bar within the hip, up-and-coming art district of Graz. The evening was relaxed and personal, just the way they had imagined it. We enjoyed a delicious meal, lots of laughter, and a night of celebrating into the wee hours of the night!
