so we are back in the US and coming back to the reality. We would just like to write you and thank for all your work at our wedding. I was very pleased and really excited fro the hotel Augustin. They were amazing. It all looked excellent, but especially they were really nice to us and service was much above what we expected. Guests were pleased with the food and even without previous tasting it was great. We already agreed with Chris to come back there for our anniversary :-). Also the flowers were amazing and the whole decor qas exactly as I wanted. Kamila, the stylist, was very nice and professional. Dj played great songs, hopefully we weren´t too boring, but believe we were dancing a lot. Stepan, the photogrpaher, was really great too. I do not like photos much, but with him we had lot of fun and it was easy. We couldn´t choose an better. So, thank you Andrea for great cooperation and we would be very please to recommend your agency to anyone else. I hope to be a guests at one of your weddings :-)…these are just the best in Prague. Hope you are doing well and enjoy some vacation soon.
Eva and Chris

We wanted our wedding to be an intimate family and close friends affair but we still wanted it to be fun. We chose Prague in Czech Republic for our wedding because we’ve visited this city a few times before and were always fascinated by its beauty. It’s so romantic and perfect for a wedding. I am originally from Slovakia, a neighboring country to Czech Republic so Prague was a great location for my family and the guests coming from the United States to meet and celebrate together.
Choosing our venue was a lot harder though. There’s so many beautiful gardens, hotels, and castles to choose from. Unfortunately, due to our busy schedules we were unable to travel to Prague and see venues in person before the wedding. So we chose a wedding agency that has a lot of experience planning weddings in Prague to help us make all the arrangements. This was unbeatably one of the best decisions we’ve made and we highly recommend to have a local wedding planner to anyone planning a destination wedding.
After a year of long-distance planning, skyping and hundreds of emails we were both very anxious to see it all come together when we arrived in Prague. Most importantly, we could not wait to see our venue, the Augustine Hotel. I remember how nervous I was the day we went to see it. Once we got there I was both relived and even more excited for the wedding. The venue was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and it felt intimate just as we wished. The small hotel near the Prague Castle has a rich history dating back to the 13th century. It consists of seven buildings surrounding the Saint Thomas Church and Monastery. Few practicing friars still live in an adjoining quarter. Underneath the hotel is a small brewery making the the Saint Thomas beer which was served at our reception.
Our ceremony took place in an intimately enclosed Sundial garden, followed by a cocktail reception. Me and my husband went to take pictures by the nearby Charles river and in the Wallenstein garden. The dinner took place in cloistered terrace and was followed by our first dance to Micheal Buble’s “Can’t help falling in love” underneath a 19th century Baroque fresco ceiling of the Litchfield bar. Even though we only had little bit over 30 guests we had lots of fun on the dance floor. Our DJ really did a great job at keeping us dancing. For us a small wedding worked out great and we loved that we were surrounded by our dearest family and friends and had a chance to talk to everyone. This was something that felt true to us and was the most favorite thing about the wedding.
