elegant forest wedding

ana duarte & joao

a unique wedding planned by a fashion designer - the bride

Is there anything more special than a bride who designs her own dress? Well, maybe a bride who designs her bridesmaids' and guests' dresses! Ana Duarte is the face behind Duarte brand, and if we already knew she's a unique visionary soul, when we met Ana in person, we also discovered her emotional side, a kind heart and a mind that never stops. João is that friend we all want to have around, he's always smiling, very patient and super calm - they simply complement each other.. perfectly!

We started the day in Lisbon, at the home of João's parents, the sweetest family, and then we went to Ana Duarte's Atelier, where all the magic happened.. but it was in the shadows of tall trees that AD&J brought everyone together for this magical day. There were intimate and real moments, the union of two families that now becomes one.
