I wrote about the engagement last October.


There are several sites with personal photos from the wedding.  I have inquired about using the photos but have not received a response.  If I am allowed to use several of the photos, I will update this post.  

Yes, there are other blogs that used the photos but without credit (no permission?).  I will not provide links to these sources because I cannot support copyright violations.

Thank you to Johannes Egger from NEOS, who has allowed me to use his photos.  

And a special thank you to my source for information about the wedding!
