From Brancoprata… When the bride first emailed us, we immediately realized that this was going to be a special event! Both the bride and groom live abroad and they decided to get married in the north of Portugal, at Pousada do Monte de Santa Lúzia. A beautiful hotel with a spectacular view overlooking Viana do Castelo, a very well know city in the North of Portugal! It was a weekend of various activities for the guests, where they had the chance to learn more about portuguese traditions and customs. As far as the wedding day, the couple wanted to create an elegant and timeless ambience! They incorporated little touches that made the day unique! For instance, the cake topper used was a vintage piece designed for the bride’s parents wedding! To honor the groom’s cultural background, the bride did some traditional henna art. The couple and guests enjoyed a beautiful sunset during cocktail hour and after dinner they danced the night away!

Palace

From Love Is My Favorite ColorPortugal has long been popular for it’s beautiful beaches and landscapes, it is now getting more and more popular for it’s amazing wedding venues. The Palácio de Estói in the Algarve is a perfect example of a dream wedding venue. Its architecture dates back to the 18th century.

This breathtaking venue is decorated from top to bottom in Portuguese tiles on beautiful pink walls and amazing gardens. Once Sheila e João visited this venue, they knew they were getting married there, no matter what.

Portugal Palace Destination Wedding

When I was a little girl I’d dream of a fairytale type of wedding. It’d obviously be set in a far-away palace complete with a killer ballgown and horse-drawn carriage. And while my real wedding turned out a bit more understated, it certainly doesn’t mean I can’t live vicariously through this bride who, along with Karson Butler EventsBrancoprata and Meant To Be Calligraphy, brought every last dream to life. Katie Stoops captured the magic, and you better brace yourself for Portugal wedding perfection.

Palace

From Karson Butler Events… We absolutely love destination weddings and this spring wedding in the historic city of Sintra, Portugal is one of our all-time favorites. Lush landscapes, rolling hills and historic estates tucked into the mountainside provided a romantic backdrop perfect for a wedding weekend! We planned the weekend’s events at FOUR different palaces – each very different in architecture and style!

Favorite details:

*Its not everyday that you get to sleep in a palace, and Tivoli Palacio De Seteais, does not disappoint! The incredible team there ensured the wedding group felt right at home throughout their stay.

*The culinary team at Penha Longa Catering (led by the talented Sara Gomes) is incredible! We worked with them to create one-of-a-kind dining experiences. Our favorite meal was the wedding dinner! Each guest was served an individual Portuguese cataplana (a cataplana is both the name of the copper vessel and the dish itself – it looks like a copper shell and steam cooks the ingredients in broth.) During our initial consultation with the couple, I had mentioned a cataplana cooking class I had planned during my last trip to Portugal, which started our conversation about Sintra as a destination, and the rest is history! So to see this dish ultimately served as their wedding meal was really special for me!

*The intricate walls at the wedding venue Palácio De Monserrate served as inspiration for the invitation suite design (a laser cut custom sleeve matches the pattern in the walls) and the incredible cake by T Bakes! We had custom postage made using an image from a vintage postcard of the palace.

*Working hand in hand with Sofia at Brancoprata was a highlight to this wedding. We had long admired her work from afar, and were so incredibly happy to work together in her home country. The flowers were absolutely wonderful!

*Katie Stoops’ dreamy images bring back so many wonderful memories – we were so excited to have her in Portugal with us!

*A horse drawn carriage transported our bride between the palaces for the wedding.
