We look forward to celebrating with you!
We took our time, but now we're more certain than ever. And this is much reason to celebrate. We're inviting you to celebrate love and life in general, as well as our friendship and the many years we've spent together, both near and far. For this we want to welcome you as close to home as possible. The ceremony and reception will all take place in Ober St. Veit, Vienna's "village in the city" where Alice grew up and where we now live. We can't wait to have you!
