A secret snowy wedding in the Sumava mountains of the Czech Republic… Intrigued? So are we!! Kate + Pavel knew they wanted an intimate wedding, somewhere outside — surrounded by nature. However, since some of their elderly relatives wouldn’t be able to hike up a snowy mountain, they decided to do a small + secret ceremony with their closest friends. A month after the ceremony, they invited all their friends and family for a giant wedding celebration and revealed all the photos.
Their photographer, Zuza of Everbay Co., tells us K+P wanted to get married somewhere far in the woods. After about an hour walk from the cottage, we found a quiet plain which was simply perfect. When you held your breath, the only thing that you could hear were snowflakes. Everything was dusted in white. After the ceremony hiked to Black Lake and then head back to the cottage. Kate and the ladies prepared delicious blueberry dumplings, while Pavel and the guys made a fire to have a second dinner later that night.
Let’s head to the dreamy winter wonderland, shall we?
With no exact destination in mind, they headed out into the snowy wilderness with their closest friends.
Kate + Pavel wrote letters to each other and exchanged them in the forest.
Now that’s a winter wonderland.
Their photographer shares When they revealed the whole story and photos of the ceremony to their family + friends at the wedding celebration, everyone was so encouraging and supportive. Their families agreed that it was the best decision for them to make it such an extraordinary day.

The couple rented a cottage walking distance from their favorite forest + Sumava’s Black Lake. It made for the perfect place to celebrate post ceremony.
How cozy does this look?! Congratulations K+P!
