Music and Art Inspired Brazilian Wedding with a Flash Mob!

Music and Art Inspired Brazilian Wedding with a Flash Mob! (17)

Mary and Caio lived next door to each other for twelve years before they had their first date! For their wedding they brought together everything they love; art, music, friends, family, décor and vintage. They had an art gallery of Mary’s paintings, an old Volkswagen in the fields, five bands (which had the groom playing in all of them!), friends leading their ceremony, craft beer, décor items from their house… and they partied for nine hours straight!

“I’m a painter, just like my father and my grandfather,” began Mary, “so in the long corridor at the main entrance of our wedding venue, we hung up more than 40 paintings and turned it into an art gallery. We wanted the first impression people had of our wedding to be related to art and for them to get to know more about my family heritage. We also had 14 paintings inside the main dancing hall.”

Isabela and Felipe’s Brazilian wedding had a casual and boho vibe. They were married at a concert venue in Sao Paulo. The day was simply a mash up of things they both liked.

“We didn’t want anything uniform or traditional”, said the bride. “Our venue, Centro Cultural Rio Verde in Sao Paulo was not a usual wedding location so that was different too. It’s a place where lots of independent concerts happen. About three years ago, when we’re just starting to see each other, we went to a concert there and commented that it’d be pretty cool to get married there. That comment was never forgotten!”

Colourful and Romantic Wedding In Rio de Janeiro

Colourful and Romantic Wedding In Rio de Janeiro (47)

Rayana and Guilherme’s Brazilian wedding was full of glorious details! “We wanted to have a big party with everything and everyone that makes us happy”, began the bride. “Weddings in Brazil are usually too formal and full of traditions that don’t have much to do with us, so we decided to do only the things that made sense. We had a religious ceremony because it was important for my family, but we also wanted the party to be fun and full of unusual details. Also, since we work with books, we wanted to incorporate them in the wedding décor.”

“One of my main concerns was that not to have a décor that was too ‘girlie’ so we decided to put different elements, such as the golden dinosaurs and geometric structures. Having our wedding in the morning was something different as well, since most of the weddings in our country take place in the evening.”

Bohemian Folk Wedding in Brazil

Juliana and Fabio’s wedding was held at Mansão Atrium in Brazil. Their bohemian and folk themed day was actually completely inspired by a wedding they saw on Instagram!

“Our idea was  to make things as simple as possible”, said the bride. “We didn’t want our wedding to have a luxurious or classical feel. We wanted everyone to be themselves. Aesthetically our wedding may seem pretty similar to others, but in Brazil it was a very big challenge to have an organic simple wedding. We wanted it to feel like a big family dinner or a weekend camping.”

The ceremony was held outdoors. “The pastor who officiated our ceremony is a personal friend of the groom which made made it much more personal. The words he used were kind and gave a special touch and fun to the ceremony. I would advise other couples to have someone they know conduct their ceremony. If they know you and your history it will make it so much more meaningful”.
