Travel Themed Destination Wedding in Zurich by Nina Hintringer Photography
Today’s wedding is a real international affair. The bride is Canadian and the groom is Swiss. They met in New York, got engaged in Montenegro and married in Switzerland. Oh, and their photographer is from Austria.
I love hearing stories like this one, where a couple is just meant to be together and fate steps in to make sure that their paths cross, twice on this occasion! Ana-Marija and André chose the famous Dolder Grand in Zurich as the location for their intimate wedding reception. The Dolder Grand dates back to 1899, and features a luxurious five star hotel housed inside a historic building designed in the style of a traditional Swiss Castle. What a perfect setting for this modern day fairytale.
From the Photographer: The story of Ana-Marija and André is amazing. Ana-Marija is from Canada, André from Switzerland and they met in New York! Totally international right from the beginning. But they met not once, but on two separate occasions while they were both visiting New York City a few years ago. After some years of long distance dating, André proposed on a beautiful August evening during their holidays in Montenegro. Because of their love story they decided on incorporating a slight travel theme in their wedding with small accents like their invitations and guest favors. They decided to have an intimate wedding in Zurich, Switzerland at The Dolder Grand. A really stunning location with an amazing view over Zurich and the Zurichsee. Their wedding was a dream, the gorgeous hotel looks like a fairy tale castle and also the weather played along very well. The whole week before the wedding we had lots of rain in Europe but on their wedding day the sun came out more and more, it was really hot and we had an awesome panoramic view. Ana-Marija still lived in Toronto, Canada and André in Zurich, Switzerland so they planned their wedding from two different continents. Really a challenge but they did a great job. For us FaceTime was the only possibility to meet in advance but it worked well and the day before their wedding we checked out the stunning wedding venue The Dolder Grand and met them in person. At this point we would like to say thank you to Ana-Marija and André for choosing us from Austria to cover their destination wedding in Switzerland. Thank you so much for your trust, it was such a pleasure working with you! We wish you all the best for your future together!
