YOUR WEDDING DAY MATTERS

Don't feel trapped by the wedding industry to do it their way

YOU DON'T FOLLOW THE STATUS QUO 

YOU DON'T LET OTHER PEOPLE EXPECTATIONS STEER YOUR DECISIONS 

YOU KNOW THERE'S SOMETHING MORE OUT THERE FOR YOU

It's almost the default setting of how these things play out. You get engaged, now you feel the next step and the expectation is to invite 200 guests, have enough bridesmaids and groomsmen, get a coordinator, obsess over table settings and feel like you've looked at the same flower arrangement 15 times. 
But it doesn't have to be like this and that's why you're here.

YOU EXPECT MORE OUT OF YOUR WEDDING DAY...

AND WHAT'S MORE FREEING THAN A DAY BUILD ON WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, WHEREVER AND WHENEVER YOU WANT?

An entire day of adventure designed with you and for you. A day that allows you to...
Be yourself and enjoy every moment with the one you love; entirely focused on one another and the moment you're surrounded by. 
Confess your love to one another's and commit your hearts to each other however you would like. Free from judgment or pressures.
Take things as slowly as you like or pack the day full of adventure and memories.
Escape the feeling of putting on a show for others.
And most of all, create a day full of memories and firsts that you two can look back on and relive each and every moment you had together and all the emotions that day each and every time.

Hi, I'm Cindy! I was born in Austria and I look for any excuse to travel back to Europe.

Ever since I was little I would crave adventure. I am always ready to pick up and go explore new places and meet new people. 

My husband is my best friend and, of course, my number 1 travel buddy.

We are hopeless romantics and love capturing the beautiful moments that make your love story. We'd love to join you on your adventure and give us the honor of turning your dream adventure into a reality!
