Portugal, a country known for its breathtaking landscapes, rich history, and warm hospitality, offers an array of picturesque destinations for couples seeking the perfect wedding venue. Among these enchanting places, there is one destination that stands out, capturing the essence of romance and charm: a place where olive green hues blend harmoniously with fantastic vibes. Join us as we embark on a visual journey of the wedding of dreams for Lilliana and Lewis.
The couple found Quinta de Gatão to host their special day. Quinta de Gatão is a family-owned farm, dating back several generations, comprised of a Manor House and four Cottages. A stone patio surrounds the houses in the front and back yard with a winding footpath joining up with lush green lawns were a 18th century Chapel and swimming pool can be found.
Here is a video of their special day:
Quinta de Gatão is located near Penafiel, between the Douro River and the Tâmega River in an area which is well known for the production of Vinho Verde ( a young wine). Lil approached the venue to host her wedding, and her guests. It was a wonderful spot from bridal prep, to guests jumping into the pool fully clothed after the couple's departure. All topped off with a stunning sunset. *Chef's Kiss*.
Olive green, a colour symbolising peace, harmony, and abundance, sets the tone for Lilliana and Lewis' special day. As the couple exchanged their vows, surrounded by the gentle rustling of leaves, they are sure to feel embraced by the tranquil ambiance and natural beauty of their surroundings. The details of Lil and Lewis's wedding matched the tone of the environment with olive leaf confetti, olive green bridesmaid dresses and bowtie for Lewis.
Love is a beautiful and mysterious force that brings people together in the most unexpected ways. Sometimes, the path to finding true love can be long and challenging, but when the perfect match is finally discovered, it makes every step of the journey worthwhile. In this extraordinary tale of love, these guys had a passionate wedding. A couple who not only found each other but also discovered a deep love for God that would guide them throughout their lives. Both Lil and Lewis had endured their fair share of heartache and disappointment in the pursuit of love. They had patiently waited, never settling for anything less than a love that would honour God and reflect His grace and mercy. Their wedding reflected this, in which the vows they shared made everyone cry. It was a really hot day, so tears were a slight relief.
Lewis and Lil's passionate wedding was a testament to the incredible journey of two individuals who waited patiently for God's perfect timing. Through their unwavering faith, they found not only each other but also a continued deep love for God. Their story serves as a reminder that love, when guided by a higher power, has the ability to transform lives and create miracles.
As we witness their journey, we are inspired to embrace patience, trust in God's plan, and never settle for anything less than a love that reflects His divine grace. May their passionate & breathtaking wedding continue to serve as a beacon of hope for all those who seek love... and a destination wedding ;)
