Agreed :), and many thanks to Elsa for giving us the opportunity to indulge ourselves with the many pics of members of the old Holy Roman Empire families.
The schloss in Elsa's post #28, 05-20-2006, Schloss Weyerburg, is the Austrian seat of the Schönborn-Buchheim family.

True without Elsa we would all miss out on the fun! Thank you Elsa for the hard work!

And yes, Austria also has incredible castles!

What I also like about this thread is that these smaller noble wedding festivities are as much about reuniting families as they are about the bride and groom. At least, that's my impression.
There's a more intimate character to these weddings than your typical big event for, say, a crown prince of Norway or the Netherlands or Spain.
These princes had no choice but inviting a myriad of political figures to their respective weddings.

I think it's because of this that I often end up disappointed by the sort of political grandeur of the bigger royal weddings. Because the main protagonists, the bride and groom, often seem more like pawns in a play.
For example I couldn't help but think that the Netherlands' Willem Alexander looked shy and uncomfortable on his wedding day, and I don't blame him! An intimate family wedding like most couples on this thread I think would've suited him much better! (although of course Maxima at least did her best to seem delighted by all the fuss on 2-2-02!)

The former Crown Prince of Jordan (the late King Hussein's brother) developed very close ties to the royal families, reigning and deposed, of Europe during his long period as crown prince.

Saint Exupery...that's definitely a member of the normally reclusive, said to be filthy rich family of the world-famous author!

And Les Milandes...I visited it as a child...one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. Josephine Baker used to own it!
