Romantic & intimate al fresco vineyard wedding with a fantastic view of Vienna

Two of our favourite things about this al fresco vineyard wedding in Vienna were the relaxing vibe and the view! The wedding took place in a winery above Vienna and it had one of the most fantastic views of the city that we had the pleasure capturing!

Wailand winery is a gem of al fresco vineyard weddings with its panoramic view of Vienna. Tijana & Luka got ready together in Vienna and took a Mini Cabrio to the winery. Their ceremony was small and intimate. Their favourite people behind them, while the vineyard and the whole Vienna were in front. We took them back to the Vienna suburbs for a small photo shoot, knowing that when the golden hour strikes we will take them to the vineyards for a full blown wedding photo shoot! Their day went by while listening to jazz, drinking winerie’s sparkling wine and enjoying the summer day with their family and friends.

From our bride Tijana:

Due to pandemic restrictions, our planned event was canceled. We actually planned a wedding ceremony on a large hotel terrace and a big party afterwards, but had to cancel it. After being together for thirteen years, we still wanted to say yes in 2020, so with huge help of friends and family we’ve managed to organise another gathering in about three weeks time!  Our vineyard wedding was al fresco, with a small number of our closest guests. We had a ceremony on a hill spot above the vineyard, overlooking the beautiful city of Vienna, accompanied by a jazz trio.

Having been lucky with the sunny weather, we didn’t need the indoor space of the winery. Later during the day, we transferred to the upper terrace, with delicious dinner and the party that went on with a traditional Balkan band playing. For our dear guests we had small thank-you gifts. A cute hand-made mini salt and pepper bottles with veils and bow ties imitating Luka & me. 

The wedding dress was kind of a pleasant coincidence. I went to this great wedding concept store, Loveglow, to buy wedding shoes after I’ve read that they are Austrian importers for this USA brand of shoes Bella Belle. They were a perfect match! Since we’ve made the appointment at the store, where we drank sparkling rosé and had snacks; I’ve tried on some dresses, two of which are from the same collection and looked really special. After a few days I came back and decided for the close fitting bare-back lace dress which suited the laid back wedding and felt like the right one!

The decoration followed the natural vibe of the outdoors. Our friends assembled different white flowers, eucalyptus, rosemary branches in asymmetrical style. And of course lots of candles! Everything was perfect, and when the evening came, the whole location became a hundred times more romantic! Sunset and dusk overlooking the city, right music, drinks and great mood under the fairy lights felt overwhelming. It was completed by the moment when a friend sang a love song for Luka & me. It was magical. Everything was improvised and yet felt exactly right.
