The Wedding:
Penha Longa Resort in Sintra Portugal


Personal Touches in Portugal

Our ceremony felt magical. We wrote our own vows and asked our family members to read poems and verses of scripture. Each song played throughout the day was carefully chosen. There was a moment of prayer and reflection to Ave Maria for our family members and friends who were there in spirit on our special day.

Capturing This Classic Portugal Wedding

Our photographers, Aguiam Wedding Photographers, were a dream! We felt this immediately on our engagement shoot as well. Preparing for our first look, we laughed and felt like old friends with our photography team. For the ceremony and reception, they disappeared into the background, but it was evident from the photographs that they had been eyeing every detail— big and small!

DIY Wedding Favors 

Our welcome bags were DIY and featured Portuguese snacks and elegant tile cookies from T Bakes. At dinner, each place setting featured a tile magnet labeled with the guest’s name.


Wedding Advice from the Bride

Wedding planning is so much fun. Find vendors who are communicative and responsive. We found it fun to keep the details a secret, so the majority of our family and friends were blown away by the day. Also, make sure you plan your time for the day. For example, create a list of photos you would like for the photographer, think about the order of songs you may like to hype up your crowd, be mindful of time for speeches, etc.
