my sister’s wedding

October 20, 2010 § Leave a comment

after scouting for photo-locations and the bachelor party, the day of my sister’s wedding finally arrived. unfortunately the sky was covered with a a gray sheet of blah, but at lest the temperature was ok and there was no wind or rain.

first thing in the morning we drove up to the castle and took the wedding portraits. this is one of the 3 kinds that we did.

a custom in our village: the groom has to “buy out” the bride from the local youth and prove his “suitability” for her by drinking a number of alcoholic beverages.

now because berni decided to drive up to the castle himself he only had to drink very, very light spritzers.

exchanging rings.

the newlyweds with their son. also best-man and bride of honor.

ballons at the reception and fun-frame portraits for everyone. those portraits were later added to the guestbook.

dinner opening speech.

cutting the wedding (cupcake-)cake. those cupcakes were delicious!

berni receives an unexpected kiss from a friend.

another custom: the bride gets kidnapped by her friends and they go to the nearest bar and the groom has to search for her, consuming a glass of schnaps at every place he searches.

now because we were in a castle and around us was nothing, the bride was led to another room and the husband searched for her in the yard.

while bernie swept for money some thought it would be fun to take his shoes.

Bachelor Party

October 20, 2010 § Leave a comment

berni’s bachelor party began at an italian restaurant. the “genius” plan was to thank him for the nice evening and sending him home after dinner.

he later told us he went home and watched us prepare beer, shirts, etc. from the bedroom window. well, duh, we parked the cars right in front of it and weren’t exactly silent.

berni was stripped of his regular shirt and got a red one saying “my last chance”. we had black ones with “his last chance”

berni worked at telering for quite a while (now t-mobile) and they use this stereotypical indian character in their ads. so we dressed him up like that. here he gets his eyebrows darkened.

in hopes of getting him drunk berni had to answer a few “who wants to be a millionaire”-style questions. for every wrong answer he had to drink. we were unsuccessful though, he only got 3 questions wrong.

glow-stick parade to a bar in eisenstadt’s center.

on the way: a telering-shop. see the resemblance?

waiting for drinks

and sure enough we met my sister at her party in the same bar. now, usually you’re not supposed to meet, but eisenstadt is so small, it’s just inevitable.

getting drunk …

we only spent 5 mins in this bar, because a) it was way to full and b) age average was 16yrs

at the only place that is open after 2~3am. the guy to the left bought a lot of stuff from my sister’s basket.

highly intense colors

how is this intensely colored? it isn’t, but it has reflections and a looking-through window effect.

i think i’ve never been to the wurstelprater at night before. lights and more lights.

tourists everywhere.

nadine and kreso thinking about the getting on the ride seen in the picture below. they didn’t.

lots of flares. the streaky things to the right are caused by a dirty lens. i think it adds character.

spinning thing high above; chairoplane i think. according to a sign it’s the world’s highest at 117m. the view must be fantastic.

oh no, it’s going to crash!

another night: this guy made me think of the simpsons quote about hawaiian shirts.

looking more hammered than they actually are.

one of the most fun family portraits we’ve ever done.

sometimes when i walk past shiny walls i just have to take a self-portrait.

it’s definitely autumny now, just look at the light.

here i was checking out spots for wedding portraits with my sister.

this was also a candidate. in the end we looked at ~10 places, suitable for different weather conditions. the top one met the criteria for the wedding day.

while looking around, another wedding was taking place. we sneakingly got out of their way.

another night…

…we decided to wear shades. they made me trip at least 5 times.

all those guys just randomly flocked to our table and occupied spaces.

hiding with an implied “we should go someplace else”

“take a picture of me eating this rose!”

right before taking this one i tripped due to the darkness of the shades.

the most fascinating thing about this club was, how well ventilated it was. people were smoking, dancing and stuff, but the air was clean and breathable.
