Recommendation

The Wedding Website of Isabela Jacobsen and Patrick Shay
Even though we know you'll be coming for our wedding, we hope you take this opportunity and make a trip out of it! Here's what we think you should do: Come a few days early. Don't underestimate the jet lag! The time difference and being in another country will get to you. We recommend flying in during the weekend if possible or Tuesday AM, July 26 the latest. Cities and regions, besides Cascais, to check out if you have extra time: - Lisbon for city sight-seeing. You can do this in a day or two and it's where you'll be flying into, so this is an easy one to add. - Sintra for amazing castles (we almost had our wedding here)! It's not too far from Cascais, so you can do this in a day. - Porto if you have a few more days. We've never been, but it's known for Douro Valley, their wine region. This is a plane ride away. - Algarve region south of Portugal if you have a few more days. We HIGHLY recommend for the beaches. It's a 3 hour train or car ride from Lisbon.
Onyria Quinta da Marinha Hotel

Onyria Quinta da Marinha Hotel

Rua Palmeiras, Cascais, Lisboa 2750-005, Portugal
, +351 21 486 0100

This is a five-star hotel in Cascais that we've stayed at that has one of the best golf courses around! The groom says so himself. This is good for anyone wanting to stay extra days and want a resort feel in the town of Cascais. Close enough to beaches and the town center but a little more remote, so you'll need to take a five min uber to places.

Praça do Comércio

Praça do Comércio

Lisboa, Lisboa 1100-148, Portugal

Praça do Comércio is an area in Lisbon. It's a touristy spot for anyone who is visiting Lisbon for the first time. Good picture opportunities for typical Portuguese sight-seeing.

Cais do Sodré

Cais do Sodré

Rua da Cintura do Porto de Lisboa, Lisboa, Lisboa 1249-249, Portugal

This is the train station from Lisbon to Cascais or Estoril, so if you're in Lisbon for a few days and you want to come to the wedding area, you can take the train. It's super easy and affordable, Cascais/Estoril are about 35 mins from Lisbon. The link there should be helpful if you want to do this.

Park and National Palace of Pena

Park and National Palace of Pena

Estrada da Pena, Sintra, Lisboa 2710-609, Portugal

Sintra is a beautiful town full of castles and mountain views. We almost had our wedding here! It has fairytale vibes and you can visit the castles. We visited Pena Palace a few years ago and it was awesome. It's about a 20 min ride from Cascais and 30 mins from Lisbon. If coming from Lisbon you can take the train from Rossio train station.

Praia do Guincho

Praia do Guincho

This is the beach we had our engagement shoot at with our lovely wedding photographer, Adriana Morais. It's so beautiful! Since we'll be mostly attending city beaches, we recommend visiting this beach for an authentic, unspoiled Portugal beach experience. Although, it's known for being windy!

Arriba Restaurant

AMAZING sea views. If you want to have a special dinner during your trip, this is the place to go. This was actually one of our wedding venue options and we loved it.

This is a general area in Lisbon's city that is older but so beautiful. It is great for pictures and the cutest area to spend the day if it's you first time visiting.
