All locations are spectacular, and if you’re planning to say your vows surrounded by breathtaking scenery, we suggest you look into these locations.
Cânion da Fumacinha, Chapada Diamantina, Bahia
Centrally located in South America, this waterfall wedding destination is packed full of great hideaways and beautiful picturesque scenery.
You might have heard from seasoned vacationers that frequent Brazil, that its a trip you HAVE to plan…What better planning would there be than to make a trip for a destination wedding? This hidden waterfall is fit snug into the mountainside and with its 1,020 foot drop, the water mysteriously evaporates creating an eerie yet refreshing mist that engulfs the inner cavern. There are many areas throughout Brazil that can be at the top of many vacationers dream, but we believe this to be a great wedding location since you can also find other spectacular environments within the same region. If you’re planning a wedding then Chapada Diamantina should be on the list of definite possibilities. Once the wedding ceremony is complete, why not head over to Poço azul for a refreshing dip in the lake…did I mention the lake is actually a mountain cave system? Yes indeed, this area of Brazil is a must have in your list of possibilities.
This little gem can only be seen by guests who stay at The Hidden Valley Inn.

If scenery with a touch of romance is what you are searching for in a destination wedding, then Hidden Valley should be on your wedding list of possibilities. Do you know of many places where you have the ability to reserve a waterfall for a day? Talk about romance…
Located within the “city of waterfalls” on the second largest island in the Philippines, this beautiful waterfall takes a bit of time to get to, but well worth the effort. As you make your way to the top of the “winding staircase” you begin to feel the power and energy of the falls. Knowing you have to descend 300-500 steps to get there is not half as bad as knowing you have to trek back up once you’re ready to leave. With that said, you will be amazed as you reach the bottom, and your wedding party will feel the effort it will take to leave, slowly escapes their mind.
On the island you will have plenty of things to do, many places to explore, and a great deal of memories just waiting to be made. A wedding ceremony in the Philippines might be a great idea especially if you consider having it in the city of waterfalls.
