Elegant simplicity - a wedding filled with wonderful emotion, they celebrated with a small wedding day tour before their lavish dinner& party at the Alchymist Grand Hotel.

She is the gorgeous blonde from Moscow and he is the successful businessman who went all out for their intimate & lavish wedding. Weddings at the State Chateau of Hluboka are so memorable in part due to its manicured grounds and stunning architecture. A truly fairy tale wedding experience in the heart of Bohemia.


BOHO Love Story captured at sunset
These two spied each other from their social media accounts. When they met it was like two old lost souls reuniting. On a hot summer day in Bohemia in the midst of the pandemic they were able to laugh, love and hold each other tight while leaving their troubles behind. A Love Story session is the ultimate way to reconnect with one another.
Stylish pre-weddings atop Charles Bridge
Enjoying the Charles Bridge as the twilight changed to day was a perfect backdrop for this stylish American couple. They explored, laughed, watched the sunrise and felt the warmth of the sun flaring around them - and more importantly they had the time of their lives. There is no better way to experience Prague than to start in the very early am before the city has awoken.
Sun flared bride & groom in San Marco Venice
They so loved their Prague pre-wedding & wedding experience that a week later they asked us to meet them in Venice. We met up in San Marco before sunrise to begin their Venetian adventures. Venice in all its glory provided them with an incredible, atmospheric and sun-filled experience - one that this Hong Kong couple will never forget.

How to choose a Prague wedding planner

Are you considering Prague for your elopement or destination wedding? Unsure about which wedding planners you can trust? If you are in need of an honest opinion - I would be happy to assist. As an American with 13 - years of international wedding experiences, I know which agencies you can put your trust in. There is no quid pro quo or kickbacks - which is sadly quite common here.

Many agencies are brilliant at having a stylish website - many feature fake weddings or 'styled shoots' with gorgeous models. But when it comes down to a real wedding - they fail to offer the type of services that brides and grooms from Western Europe & N. America expect. It can be quite daunting finding the right wedding planner especially when the market is saturated.

If you wish to chat about your ideas and options - please feel free to contact me. If I have the time, I would be happy to chat with you to ensure that you have the very best wedding day experience in Prague.
