Maria & Carlos
Douro Valley Dream Wedding
Douro Valley is hardly a bad scenario for a wedding, but Maria and Carlos, a young and stylish Brazilian couple, exceed all expectations. This was a Destination Wedding with 270 guests that travelled all the way from Brazil, and even Japan, to celebrate love with our couple.
The venue couldn’t be better, Six Sense Douro Valley is definitely a special place that set the tone for the entire wedding: modern, stylish combined with tradition.
Surrounded by Douro’s green fields, touches of blue hydrangeas and bright pink flowers were selected for the outside ceremony that was held under the Portuguese summer sun. The table centerpieces were inspired by white and blue tiles to match the wedding stationery, designed carefully by the mother of the bride. Fantastic ceramic vases along with metallic glass and candles created an elegant yet simple decor for the tables.
Lighting was a big important factor when planning this big and luxurious wedding, using the modern architecture characteristics of the venue and enhance them with lighting, created an intimate fun and ready to party mood for the reception.
The choice was very successful to set the right mood as the party went by all night long until the sun was rising above the wonderful Douro as if the river itself was celebrating love along with Maria and Carlos.
