With the old world beauty of Vienna, Austria as the backdrop, Markus Wischenbart wed Mrs. Irena Markovic-Wischenbart this past summer. The ceremony cemented the bond between two proven business leaders and entrepreneurs: Wischenbart is owner and president of Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club/Resorts and Markovic-Wischenbart is owner and CEO of Lifestyle Properties. As luck (or fate) would have it, these two operations are entirely independent of each other and only share the world “Lifestyle” in their respective names. It’s a small coincidence to say the least and both found the irony quite funny as their relationship grew. 

The wedding itself in the European city of Vienna, where some 1.8 million people call home, was actually a small affair. That’s not to say that just Markus Wischenbart and Mrs. Irena Markovic-Wischenbart were in attendance. Rather, close friends of family of both Wischenbart and Markovic-Wischenbart came to celebrate the wedding. What’s more, the couple are in the planning stages of a second – and much more lavish – wedding that will be held later in 2019. It’s true that most couples don’t hold two weddings within the same year, but the couple felt that it was only right to have a ceremony where it would be easier for friends and family to commute to. Thus, this wedding will be held in Irena Markovic-Wischenbart’s native land of Serbia. More specifically, the wedding will be held in the capital city of Belgrade and the recently-wed couple can’t wait to celebrate among the rest of their family and social circle.  

After this second celebration, it’ll be back to work for Markus Wischenbart Mrs. Markovic-Wischenbart. Markus Wischenbart will be kept plenty busy with planning and management duties that come from running a vacation club in the Dominican Republic. To earn the positive reputation that his companies have amassed over time, Mr. Wischenbart will tell you that it takes time and foresight to business knowledge to offer desirable attractions. This includes members-only restaurants, private beaches, exclusive clubs, VIP catering, golf courses and many nightlife options. Mrs. Markovic-Wischenbart’s professional career has been equally exciting and rewarding. As the CEO of a real estate company, she’s kept tabs on housing trends while moonlighting as an award-winning event planner whose monthly club nights have gone on for many consecutive years.  

While the upcoming wedding in Serbia is bound to be an affair to remember, both Markus Wischenbart and his new wife are happy to get back to the day-to-day of running a business.
