African Fogo Volcano Wedding, in Charming Cape Verde
After a chance meeting at the airport in Cape Verde, Joao and Krista had an instant connection. Once engaged, they set their sights on the place where they met as the location for their destination wedding. His family is from Cape Verde and she was there serving in the Peace Corps, so the destination held special meaning for both. The volcanic island served as the most captivating backdrop, with the couple taking to the streets, beach, and quiet outlooks of the island. The bride and groom both wore multiple looks for the event, which complemented the elegant yet laid back mood of the entire affair. From a classic suit and gown to streamlined and barefoot, even their wedding looks had it all.
For the ceremony, the groom's family's home chapel was a perfect, cozy setting. After exchanging vows, the couple went for portraits at the foot of the Cha das Caldeiras Volcano before making their way back up to celebrate with their loved ones. The character of the island served as the perfect costar to the lovebirds all throughout their special day, from the moment they walked down the aisle to their sendoff. Their wedding day was truly one of a kind.
