Loren and Gray destination wedding at Penha Longa Resort Hotel in Sintra, wich besides being absolutely beautiful it was super fun!
This American couple planed to hold their romantic wedding ceremony and wedding reception amid the beautiful landscapes of the Sintra mountains, Portugal. The charming and most convenient wedding venue we know around Lisbon area, that was so good in welcoming their family and friends over to witness their marriage.
What can we say about this marriage that is good enough to express its intensity? It is difficult to express in words what we feel and what we saw on this beautiful day, so we wish that the wedding pictures convey what words may not do.
First of all, the couple is absolutely charming and totally cool, that you will agree with us as soon as you start seeing the photos.
Before the wedding, when they came to Portugal to finalize some details for the big day, we have made their engagement photoshoot. So they were already familiarized with having a camera around them. Like we always mention, these Engagement Sessions can make a huge difference because in some ways, it makes you feel much more comfortable in front of the camera. Saying that, the two were always very comfortable and at ease with us on the wedding day and this is something that gives great value to the wedding photos, so they can honestly and uniquely tell the story of the most special day in the life of each couple.
We were exchanging emails for quite a while because we all wanted everything to be perfect. One of the bride´s wishes was to do the first look wedding photos in the most epic locations of Penha Longa before the ceremony, and for that moment Loren wore a different dress from the symbolic wedding ceremony and a crown of flowers, that made her look splendid. Gray wore the same, men are always more practical .:)
The wedding ceremony took place at Núncio Gardens. It was such a nice ceremony, full of laughter and some tears of emotion! The wedding reception was in the Noble Room where there is an incredible and huge fireplace along with the typical Portuguese Tiles on the wall. Then came the party, and yep, this was The Party! It took place in the middle of the cloisters of the ancient and imposing monastery that dates back to the 14th century, and lasted all night long… The happy couple and all the guests had so much fun that it was completely contagious! We are so happy we were part of this fabulous destination wedding at Penha Longa!
