Joana and Dogan’s sunset Praia do Evaristo Algarve Wedding was such a dream. Praia do Evaristo is a gorgeous beach located in the Algarve, Portugal and the perfect spot for a wedding ceremony. We had the honor of documenting their engagement in Istanbul Turkey earlier in the year and we couldn’t help but notice how in love these two were. It is clear to see that Dogan completely adores Joana. They have the kind of love that just makes you happy. We were so excited to be able to be a part of their wedding day. Joana is from Portugal and Dogan is from Turkey making the wedding a fusion of both cultures which was incredible (especially when the dancing started). The day began at Joana’s Parents home in Albufeira where she and all her bridesmaids were getting ready. There was tons of food and Sagres beer to go around per the usual in Portugal. Once finished getting ready they opted for Tuk Tuks instead of your usual hired car, which was such a fun touch. Each Tuk Tuk was adorned with banners announcing the wedding. We arrived to the beach ceremony about an hour before sunset. The sun setting was the most beautiful backdrop to Joana and Dogan exchanging their vows. Evaristo restaurant is located right on the beach which is where the reception took place. The dancing went on until after two in the morning bouncing back and forth between Turkish and Portuguese music. The entire day was such a mix of fun, laughter and joy. It was so special for us to be a witness to two people, two families and two cultures coming together because of love. Joana and Dogan your Algarve wedding was absolutely stunning and we wish you all the best as you start this new chapter in life as Husband and Wife.
