The rain clouds disappeared on Saturday (after still torrential rain on Friday) and the sun came out early afternoon to provide a nice setting for the wedding. The ceremony contained several moving moments like when the bride’s nephew broke out in tears when she was about to sing a song for the couple and was rewarded with standing ovations after not running away, but definitely the highlight was the vow sung by Sissi to her husband with huge emotions and a perfect voice. Once the married couple left the church in Oberwart the sun was out completely and they were able to accept congratulations by many invited guests and spectators under blue sky.
Lateron we transferred in an old regional train to Hannersdorf where the wedding party was planned in a huge tent on the hill overlooking the surrounding area. There were no obvious signs that a few hours ago this tent was still flooded and the party pretty much at risk. We all enjoyed the fact that the weather has opened the weather window so perfectly, enjoyed the sheer endless amount of wedding dishes - traditional for the Burgenland pancake strips- and liver dumpling soup, boiled beef with horseradish variation and potatoes, escalopes with salad and rice and roast pork with dumplings and kraut– celebrated the newly-wed couple, danced and had one or the other glass of wine, caipirinha or strawberry daiquiri.
Bubu the dancer - The opener of a long party night!
When we left the party at 0300 it was still running on full steam and rumour has it that it still went on until 0500 in the tent. The couple hopefully enjoyed an unforgettable wedding night and we wish Sissi & Andi once again all the best for their future together!
