Rita + Vasco

Delicate Wedding in Portugal

Pink wedding shoes, sweet tables, personal touches and a breathtaking venue: I love Rita and Diogo’s delicate wedding in Portugal! Photography by Pedro Vilela.


The wedding took place June 1st, 2013, at the Quinta de São Thiago, in Sitra, Portugal. From the groom:
Our day started nervously, in the expectation of what was going to happen. It was simply magic, our relatives and friends arriving, the staff staring with its tips and tricks, and all along this timeless day, congratulations, smile and laughter, emotions and memories of bygone days… The entrance of the bride, fast as the opening of a flower, letting out its sparkles, perfume, color and happiness, totally contagious! A flirt in simplicity, to represent a quick moment of union, that symbolically marked the Day, the Before and the After in the calendar of our lives… The glamor of an afternoon between friends, the Sun, the blanket in the grass, the blue of the sky, the green of the surroundings and this contagious happiness, pure energy… When the night fell, the fireflies lightened up the wedding cake, a masterpiece of pastry that we shared and enjoyed together! There still was some magic in our feet, that made us dance until exhaustion. One day, it was the Day, full of details, small contingencies, unique and historical moments of our life.

Name one thing you regret…

It only lasted 12 hours, close to 720 minutes, 43200 little seconds… Time goes on and went on so brutally, as only time can do, so we can say that the one thing we regret is to have had such little time!

… And one thing you’re really happy about/ proud of.

The families that created us, the friends that were there for us, from the moment we were born to wherever life’s taking us.
