Picture this: tying the knot at a historic Italian castle then dancing under the stars with a glass atrium reception. Sounds like a fairytale doesn’t it? With the right vendors on your side, this fairytale could become a royal reality. And for Christine and Christoph hunting down their dream vendors—like planner Svenja Fischer—was top priority while planning their destination wedding.
This couple wanted their wedding venue to be the main event and Schloss Freudenstein didn’t fall short. From the existing historic architecture to the modern glass enclosed reception addition, this venue was the best of both worlds. Neutral florals by Evelina Florence Flowers added elegance and allowed for the venue’s existing features to shine.

Schloss Freudenstein, Italy
Enjoying The Planning Process
Planning our wedding was a very special time we both enjoyed to the fullest. As destination weddings are not already challenging enough our planning got impacted by Covid. However, we were lucky enough to work with an amazing wedding planner and two creative wedding designers. That’s why we prioritized vendors when creating our budget.
Memorable First Look At This Italian Castle Wedding
The most memorable moment for both of us was the first look. When the chapel’s bells started to ring Christine set out on her way accomplished by her father. While walking through the castle and courtyard was already very special for her, the entrance into the chapel and walking down the aisle was just a wow for both us and a moment we will never forget.
The Importance Of Hiring A Trusted Photographer
Working with Wedding and Waves was an amazing experience. As we have been able to already book them for our civil wedding a view days before the church wedding it felt like a very trusted and familiar atmosphere on the day of. This made it possible that the couple shooting turned out to be one of the most special and intimate moments for us. We really enjoyed having a view minutes just for the two of us and almost didn’t realize them being around and taking photos. Overall they perfectly blended into our wedding party and therefore have been able to capture the most special moments of our most important day in life.
