Utterly Romantic Waterfall Peneda-Gerês National Park Elopement

February 1, 2021 | kailey

There isn’t a more romantic way to renew vows than in front of a towering waterfall backdrop. Alice and João’s romantic Peneda-Gerês national park elopement is the ultimate inspo for adventure lovers. From effortlessly elegant fashion to the celebratory champagne popping. Photographer Arte Magna captured the breathtaking views that made a hike—with backpacks filled with wedding gear—worth it. 

Alice dressed her simple cream Plissê Atelier dress and minimalist gold jewelry with eye-catching sparkle pink boots. Her obsession with detail is an understatement. The moody fall-inspired bouquet, by florist La Vie En Rose, perfectly complemented the dark and earthy Peneda-Gerês National Park colors. Now get ready to lace up your hiking boots because these photos are sure to take you on an adventure.
