Nassim and Adam’s destination wedding in Portugal, at Forte da Cruz, Estoril, was a classical family celebration. Travelling from the United States, the couple, their family, and closest friends enjoyed an elegant black-tie wedding planned with refinement and taste by the seashore. Once a coastline defence fortress from the 17th century, Forte da Cruz was remarkably restored and turned into an elegant wedding venue in the Lisbon coastal area. Right by the water, the grand building has beautiful open terraces and extensive balconies that catch the unique Atlantic light so dear to our photographers. This particular light is spectacular for portraits since it flatters everyone and helps translate wedding day emotions into images.
