Celina & Leonel
Mosteiro de Alcobaça
A Portuguese descendant and an American, decide to get married in Portugal and come to us with a determined objective. They want to hold the religious ceremony at the Monastery of Alcobaça. After many online meetings and some mishaps, two years later, they arrived in Lisbon and finally managed to look each other in the eye. What a sweet soul this bride has, I thought as soon as I saw her! The wedding day arrived and it was wonderful to witness the synergy that immediately emerged between Portuguese and Americans, who did not know each other and did not speak the same language. Behold, the bride appears, in the nave of this monastery that was once the scene of a great love story, with that happiness stamped on her face. From this moment on, everything flows and after a beautiful ceremony, the party continues in a manor house in the town's historic center, which stands out for its elegance and hospitality.
