Cristal + Jordon . 2021, Sintra, Portugal

About Cristal and Jordon

Cristal is a passionate Aquarian Brazilian, strong, intelligent, family oriented and honest. She is humble yet she knows her self-worth and she stand tall and proud. Practical and romantic in a delicate balance. She loves Alice in Wonderland as Alice reminds us to get you know yourself and enjoy the journey of learning that life is.

Jordon is a highly planned Aquarian British that loves changing his planning last minute. He is driven, perfectionist, loyal, caring and thoughtful. He is a safe port for Cristal and wants nothing but the best for the family. He loves training and exercising, even during vacations, and recently has fallen in love for Brazilian Jiu jitsu, a great way to combine his passion with learning Portuguese.


These two beautiful souls met in October 2016 in Geneva, when they were both living there for work.  First they talked for 2 months on Whatsapp before they found the right day to meet. At the end, they have decided to meet for a quick chat after work and training, of course, outside Cristal’s gym. It took another month so they could go for a proper date. Their relationship became more serious when Jordon decided to surprise Cristal in New Year, taking a flight to Hawaii last minute.

The care they had since the beginning made them realize that they were the right one for each other, that was a partnership for life.


The Wedding

Cristal and Jordon married on September 2021 on the beautiful and romantic Quinta da Penalva, in Sintra, Portugal. They told us that Portugal was their choice as they enjoy portuguese food, weather, energy and it’s closer to Brazil both with direct flights, language and culture.


Their main request for the wedding was a non-conventional, not formal, outside wedding where people could have good food and party environment, with touches of Alice in Wonderland (one of Cristal’s favourite books).


The ceremony took place at the venue, and it was full of emotional speeches from their loved ones, as well as amazing vows to each other.

The after party time was also very awesome, shifting from tears of emotion from the loved ones’ speeches, to the wildest party ever.

Organizing a wedding in 2021 was full of adventures! The most challenging point was working with last minutes changes (Portugal opened to Brazil flights a week before the wedding), so they moved the guest list a couple of times (both for good surprises of last minute confirmations, as well as sad last minute cancelations).
