Magical. That’s the word that bride Lauren describes her wedding. And truly, what other word could you use to illustrate a day that takes place in a Portuguese palace as beautiful as this?
Lauren and Michael chose Portugal for their destination wedding as it provided the perfect wedding venue: a historical, blue-tiled palace equipped for a dreamy European affair. Every one of Jesus Caballero‘s photos of the couple at Palacio dos Marqueses da Fronteira is stunning: the courtyard ceremony, the portraits wandering the historic grounds, the blue tiles & opulent statues that filled the reception area.
We could go on and on about every beautiful detail of this destination wedding day, but you’ll certainly see it all in the photos. Beyond the beauty, we appreciate some of bride Lauren’s sage advice for wedding budgeting. “Ask a friend who’s planned a wedding before” she says, and this is such a good point! If you have a recently married friend they’ll be able to dish about all the surprising costs that added up in their planning and all the ways they may have saved.
