The day unfolded with a traditional ceremony in the castle’s chapel. The couple exchanged vows surrounded by striking oil paintings and an awe-inspiring domed ceiling boasting impressive hand-painted murals. The newlyweds and their guests kicked off the evening’s festivities with a cocktail hour in the castle’s elaborate gardens, then headed indoors to the ballroom for dinner and dancing. A palette of gold, cream and white, as well as lush arrangements of orchids, roses and hydrangeas, set a regal tone for the reception and matched the ballroom’s ornate architecture. Evora and Jakob used the menu to blend their two cultures, serving Austrian specialties like Carinthian beef tenderloin and gingerbread souffle, and treating guests to a caipirinha bar during cocktail hour. After dinner guests hit the dance floor, where they grooved to the beat all night and striking a pose at the couple’s selfie-stick photo booth.
