N+D (USA) Vrtba Garden destination wedding in Prague

 Where to start with these two…?

Besides being, young hip, fun loving Americans from the midwest who enjoy traveling and the finer things in life;  Nicole is also a wedding & portrait photographer making this the 5th wedding photographers wedding I have photographed.  While Drew – like myself and most  of us guys  – was not a big fan of being photographed. But as this was Nicole’s wedding day that did not stop Drew from cutting loose and having some fun later on. One of their reasons for not having a large wedding back in the US was due to them simply wanting to have their wedding day in their own way and in a city that they both love. Prague is certainly that kind of city with its enchanting & historic architecture and laid back vibes.

On the day of we met them (I say we as my trusty lighting tech was with me) at the truly special Alchymist Nosticova a true luxury boutique hotel that additionally provides a wonderful venue for couples getting prepped on their wedding day. The atmosphere is distinctively Old Europe and those orange & red shades certainly make for a striking color palette.

After a few photos of Nicole getting prepared as well as a few wonderful moments shared with the proud mothers it was time to travel to the wonderful Vrtbvoska Zahrada / Vrtba Garden – one of the gems of Prague where Drew was patiently awaiting the start of their wedding ceremony.

You could not have asked for better weather  as the Nicole was escorted through the colorful manicured gardens.

After their ceremony underneath the famous frescoes and the exchanging of their vows and rings, these two and their families explored the garden  with the spectacular panoramic view that inspires so many to keep coming back. After a few fun group shots with family & friends, we took leave of them and spent several hours exploring the gardens at Prague Castle.

We caught up with their family & friends for a small reception and dinner at the wonderful Aria Hotel which offers breathtaking views of the city below and especially the castle above. All in all a very stunning and beautiful day for these two.

To Nicole & Drew, congratulations again! We wish you much love, happiness and future success in your new lives together as husband and wife.
