Emotional Winter Elopement amid the Austrian Alps

Our couple, Theresa and Jens, got married in 2015. They shared this special day with all of their loved ones, but they always wanted a private getaway – just the two of them. Since a confession of love is always something intimate and emotional, the couple wanted to do this winter elopement in a very private and romantic location without any audience. To create the desired personal and cozy atmosphere, there could not be any better place than a wooden cabin on the top of a snowy mountain in Austria, right?

The wintertime always has this cozy atmosphere and the landscape in the Alps is breathtaking.

Winter Wedding Venue: Chalet in the Snowy Mountains in Austria

The perfect elopement location was found with this beautiful rustic and romantic wooden cabin.

It it both quaint and thrilling, since a feeling of solitude is also present. Kasermandl is a really romantic place and the warmth it radiates matches the couples aura. Hence the wood, it is cozy and rustic. It is perfect for an intimate winter wedding or a winter elopement.

Perfectly Dressed for a Winter Wedding

The styling of the bride and the groom for this winter elopement had to be warm and festive. Therefore, the bride is wearing a beautiful dress from Lana Mueller with long sleeves and gorgeous lace all over it. The highlight of this dress is definitely the low back neckline. Rustic brown mountain boots are more weather appropriate than other bridal heels and go with the rustic location. The bride’s jewelry is made of diamonds and berg crystals. Moreover, the headpiece is a beautiful crystal crown which reminds of ice and snow.

The groom is wearing a unique grey suit from Lo & Go made of tweed. Tweed is a warm fabric so it is great for winter weddings. The mixed colors of white, grey and black make this suit really fascinating and special. His bow tie is also made of tweed to match the rest of the outfit and the black vest is also very chic.

Decoration of the Cabin and a Winter Wedding Color Palette

In the logde, the couple was having a dinner. The table decoration for this winter elopement had the motif of ice and snow, just like the jewelry of the bride. Crystal glasses and handmade ceramic plates with an interesting  glaze that reminds of snow really capture the atmosphere of the surroundings. The centerpieces come in an all white look. White helleborus, white ranunculus and plum twigs with small and delicate blossoms. Overall, the neutral color palette comes in muted tones like white, off-white, grey and earthy tones to get the connection to the rustic wood of the cabin. Silver is the accent color and it was used in the cutlery and jewelry. White napkins made of silk and a white linen table cloth make the table decoration complete.

Stationary for a Winter Wedding

For the stationary for this winter elopement, the motif of ice and snow continues. Ice crystals are portrayed in the transparent paper. A calligraphy in a really light grey appears frosty and romantic. The white wax seals remind of soft snowflakes.
