This summer has been absolutely full of adventure…and weddings! One trip that we’ve had planned for over a year was to the Azores. My oldest friend [we’ve been friends since 5] was married on the beautiful island of Sao Miguel, Portugal. Her family is from this incredible place and since I’ve known her, she has spent part of her summer going back “home”. We had a group of about 10 of us from my hometown and we stayed in three apartments on the same floor that all had breathtaking ocean views.
Our trip was broken into two parts: wedding related and then island site-seeing. First we had to celebrate the reason we were all there! There was a bachelorette/bachelor night, rehearsal & dinner, of course the wedding, and even a balcony dinner hosted by her parents the day after. Every event was just beautiful and gave us a real taste of Portuguese culture. She and her husband were married in the church her sister & brother-in-law, parents, and grandparents were married in. It was an absolutely amazing, old church. And the Bride!! Was so stunning. The entire trip was so much fun. Amazing to be in such a special place with my oldest friends, celebrating a new marriage, and seeing a new part of the world. So here’s part one of our adventure [our #azoresframilyvacay]….
P.S. Happy One Month Anniversary to the Newlyweds!!
The most beautiful, perfect Portuguese Bride! The dress was just amazing. And that view…
