Erin & Danny
Erin and Danny had a beautiful intimate destination winter wedding in Vienna, surrounded by family and close friends. Their stunning images captured by Horia Calaceanu encapsulate the raw emotion and magic of the couples day which they organised with the help of High Emotion Weddings.
Erin and Danny had booked a Danube river cruise to visit the European Christmas markets, which triggered the idea of turning their trip into an intimate winter wedding in Vienna.
The couple stated the planning process eight months prior to their wedding date, which gave them enough time to design a cosy Christmas inspired celebration and ensure that the paperwork for a legal civil ceremony was in place.
Location: Vienna, Austria
From: California, USA
Number of Guests: 18
Nearest Airport: Vienna International
Following their heartfelt ceremony, Erin and Danny had a short photo shoot in the city center of Vienna before returning to the Hotel Imperial for their lavish reception in the Marble Hall. Once the Viennese residence of the Prince of Württemberg, this luxury venue is seeped in history, elegance and old world charm.
A warm Christmas atmosphere was created by using hues of peach, creme and gold enriched with dark red amaryllis accents and magical candlelight. A special gift to each of their guests was a personalised calligraphed Christmas ornament, which was also used as a name card.
