Confession: I am obsessed with today’s vintage wedding from Peter & Veronika Photography! The couple’s style is perfect (hello gorgeous gown and pin curled hair!), the details are chic, and the photography is stunning! I also love that this couple chose to do two separate receptions, one intimate luncheon for just family, then a garden party for friends.

The first idea we agreed about with my husband was the theme of the wedding – 30s style. We both really like all details from this time – dressing, hairstyles, cars (my husband grew up with old cars – veterans as a hobby of his father and his own), the gentleman way of people behavior and so on. The two vintage cars you see in the pictures were a surprise from my father in law – one of them celebrates 100 anniversary this year.

One of the nicest moments was a surprise I prepared for my husband – it was one of his favorite songs: Simon and Garfunkel – Bridge Over Troubled Water – sang by my friend after the wedding kiss. If you know this song, you will understand the deep meaning of its lyrics. I can’t imagine a more wonderful song for this moment underlined by the atmosphere of the church and organ.

The type of our wedding celebration was a bit unusual because we divided the reception into an official late lunch with our family members (only the closest family 20 people – parents, grandparents, siblings, godparents) in a fantastic restaurant in Modra and afterwards the celebration with our young family members and friends as a party in the garden of an old woodsman cottage. Our goal was to celebrate our wedding the way we wanted and not the way the traditions dictate. So we have only nice memories of this wonderful day of our lives.

All day was accompanied by smiling people we love, my own smiling  – no crying at all. Only one moment I couldn’t hold the tears – when I realized, that it was the best decision I have ever made that I have chosen this man to stay with him all my life. (I hope he thinks the same way ;) )

    I believe it is in the Modra area, as the bride explains in her interview above.
