before, during, and after (part II)

as promised, on the 5th anniversary of our wedding, here are a few pictures taken before, during, and after the wedding which took place at kaasgrabenkirche in vienna's 19th district. a professional photographer took pictures of us afterwards - you'd never guess the scene was a roundabout not far from the church, right? the reception and party that followed were held at a restaurant / hotel in the 19th district, and went on until the small hours. what a beautiful, and fun day it was!


here comes the bride!


lighting our candle during the ceremony


just married! the deacon, pius zessner-spitzenberg, is in the background


the wedding party in front of the church


newlyweds


party time! we're looking quite happy, don't you think?




home-made menu: i drew all the little figures for the invitations, menus, and place cards myself - enjoyed that, too!

all photos except "party time" and menu / place cards by peter nikolaus.

more photos and a report can (still) be found in our wedding album (the quality's not always the greatest though).

song of the day: chapel of love by the dixie cups. but of course. :)

terrific photos! but i already knew that. i peeked yesterday. looks like a wonderful wedding... you guys don't even look a bit drunk, not even the deacon in the background. i swear.

ooooh, adore the drawn menus and invitations! i always get tickled pink when you send me mail with your drawings on the envelope.

hope you had a great anniversary yesterday!

erm, the photographer made it a point to take the pics before lunch. he knew how it goes with italian weddings.

now that i think of it. no kissing shots?? the photographer asked us to do some... and even commented that we weren't doing it with enough feeling and asked us to repeat everything. dirty old guy. i don't think i ever sent you any wedding pics, have i?

anne (for today, june 16)
