… a beautiful Christmas inspired wedding was dreamt and made possible by a group of talented Portuguese vendors.
It all started on Fernandina’s head, of In Folio, who, along with Five Photography, took the creative direction. The main idea was to build a warm Christmas mood and feeling, without all the usual clichés of the season, but still incorporating rich reds and golds from the inspiration mood board: illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages, where gold is the protagonist along with vibrant colors.
For this session they invited a dream team of vendors and presented us a stunning and flawless set of images. Hoping you will be ultra inspired by it, we take the opportunity to wish you all Merry Christmas from the The Destination team.
“It takes two, baby
To make a dream come true, just takes two”
Natalia + Ruslan’s destination wedding is a perfect illustration of the lyrics of Marvin Gaye’s song: It Takes two. An absolut dream destination wedding for two and the bride wore black: WOW!
Russian couple, Natalia + Ruslan, love traveling and wished for an intimate and cozy destination wedding. Being a wedding videographer, Ruslan knows that the best wedding destinations for two are in Europe. Portugal was a recommendation from a friend who also knew the work of StudioVictorias and Azbuka Schastia as wedding planners. Along with them, they found the charming Quinta da Picanceira for the celebration, which truly pleased Natalia who is fascinated by historic buildings. They totally relied on the professionalism of the team in Portugal for all the preparations.
Natalia + Ruslan appreciate everything unusual and meaningful. This was the second marriage for both of them and Natalia told us it made no sense for her to marry wearing white, hence the choice of a black dress. An excellent choice for her complexion and a bold and stunning style statement.
The decorations in black, gold and red highlighted the elegance of a refined and intimate celebration. Surprising was also the photo session by the sea, by Dima Kornilov and Olga Moreira, at dusk, when the elegance of the bride’s movements and her shawl created absolutely dramatic and unique moments in time.
