One day Inge came across a picture on Pinterest of a bride and groom snowboarding down the slopes in their wedding gear, and she knew right away that would be her dream wedding too. That’s how their dream of a snowboard wedding was born. In the early stages of planning, they found Charlotte from Trouwen In Oostenrijk, a Dutch wedding planner living in the Austrian Alps, and they knew she was the person who could bring their dream to life.
A Snowboard Wedding In Zell Am See – Inge & Martijn
Inge & Martijn’s love story is a modern-day romance. They met through a dating app, and hit it off right away. In fact, Martijn was the first date Inge went on through the app. He was also the last 😉 And it wasn’t long before travel became a part of their love story, and during a trip to Rome, whist taking a break after after a long day exploring, Martijn pulled out some champagne and a ring from his bag. Even though the ring was a bit small, Inge was determined to wear it, and only took it off the next day with the help of a lot of olive oil!
They both share a love of being active, especially snowboarding and wakeboarding, so a snowboard wedding in the Austrian Alps was the prefect fit for them. When looking for venues, they just knew the Schmiedhof Alm was the perfect place for them from the moment they saw it.
I asked them if they could pick a favourite moment from their day, but they both said that there we so many to choose from. The emotional vows that they had written to one another were definitely one of the most special parts of the day, but they also told me how much they loved their first look and their first dance, as well as hitting the slopes with their friends and family after the ceremony. Another highlight for Inge was also the very emotional first look she shared with her father before leaving her chalet for the ceremony.
They wanted their wedding to reflect them, and they created a fun, relaxed and incredibly beautiful day. And that’s what I see when I look through their pictures. Two people madly in love with each other, having fun and celebrating in an absolutely stunning location in the Austrian Alps.
