  • I got married in Switzerland on top of Mt. Rigi-Kulm in a small old chapel. We all took a boat from Luzern to Vitznau where we rode up the mountain on a tiny train. Mt. Rigi-Kul is quite special with an amazing sunset and everywhere you look you are completely surrounded by the beauty of the Alps. Heidi, wed in Switzerland
