When you live abroad, you are filled with a mix of emotions, like being homesick (or saudades, as we portuguese call it). When it’s time to say “i do”, coming home is the way to go, as it is where the heart always is.
So, that’s just what Alexandra + Bruno did: a tremendous party for friends and family, a celebration held at the magnificent Palácio Marquês de Fronteira, filled with love, long hugs and everything else in between…

Today, a super Portuguese wedding brought to us by R2Arte, The Destination Selected Vendor. A religious and moving ceremony in a small town’s picturesque church and a reception in a charming venue, overseeing glorious Sintra’s Palace, were the top ingredients of this traditional celebration of love.
Ana + João planned a romantic wedding in a landmark of a well known Portuguese architect from the early 20th century: Casa dos Penedos. As they are both architects, this was the perfect choice. Its architectural features and its lavishing, majestical gardens are worthy of a literary romance and an amazing scenery for a dream wedding.
They wished so hard that this day would be a true reflection of themselves that they decided to do everything (with the precious help of family and friends): invitations and all stationary, activity booklets for children, and even the guest’s favors… “it took a lot of work, but it was so worth it! The result was wonderful!”, they stated.
They celebrated all day, but towards the end of the celebrations came two of the most joyful moments: the ball and the illuminated white balloons launch.

Totally in love with the glorious mountain sceneries at Palácio da Lousã which are an auspicious omen for a couple starting a life together. Makes me think about Marvin Gaye’s classic: “ain’t no mountain high enough”. Enjoy this precious wedding film by Fullcut.
