Bussaco Palace — Luso, Portugal

I flew almost 2000 miles to be part of this wedding. Klaus & Shelle planned a weekend wedding celebration full of surprises and gorgeous locations. I immediately fell in love with both of them, the Portuguese countryside and famous Alianca wine.

 Everyone stayed in Solar da Vacarica and enjoyed a beautifully renovated rooms, spacious garden with big swimming pool, tennis court and excellent service from the owners. There is a lot to do in the area. Visiting Alianca caves with its underground museum and champagne tasting is a must.

 After dinner, everyone headed back to the after party and dancing in the gardens of Solar da Vacarica. I managed to cope with the poor lighting conditions while still working with the ambient light as much as possible. It has been a wonderful experience for everyone, and I'm sure we'll be back someday.
