If there is something I love about Portugal then it's the unique summer days it has... even in summer you can feel that fresh breeze from the Atlantic Ocean. The morning of Janet & Rui's wedding was an absolutely beautiful... sunny day , warm and blue skies. We started the day cruising around to shoot the getting ready photos with them. I was a guest too, so I had to be ready before her and of course shoot some detail shots before leaving the house in the morning... Janet's dress was a beautiful Ivory lace dress with an open back. Her mom designed the veil and put a beautiful ribbon to the dress with a flower fabric. She used baby breaths flowers for EVERYTHING!!! It was a beautiful flower to look at in every single piece of decoration, in her bouquet, they even made center pieces with those and of course boutonnieres and more. She did a first look with her dad, and he had the most amazing expression ever!!! He was super happy to see her dressed as a bride, She looked GORGEOUS!! Then we did a small first look with her brothers, Godson and Goddaughter, it was beautiful to share with her those moments. There were people from Germany, Portugal, US, and France.... a mix of languages but everyone with the same culture... Janet & Rui also did ALL the decoration displayed starting from the jar with flowers to the wooden palettes , signs, games, etc.
When we arrived at the church everyone was already waiting for her... the ceremony was short, beautiful and full of emotions. They went direct to her house and then we spent like half an hour taking portraits at the old wind mill close to the house. The reception was super fun, romantic and with the most beautiful sunset in many years!!!
They did fireworks during the cake and finally we ended the party dancing, dancing and more dancing ... take a look at this beautiful wedding in Portugal it was breathtaking, perfect and romantic!!! CONGRATULATIONS to Janet & Rui - you are amazing, we love you and we wish you ALL the happiness in the world!
