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”.

Lais and Ale met when she was just 14 and he was 17. Even though they were young, they became boyfriend and girlfriend quickly and moved in together three years later! They were married in Brazil in October.

“I had tons of ideas for our wedding, but only one was right for us: a morning outdoor wedding”, Lais began. “Most of my references came from foreign weddings though because weddings in Brazil tend to be very traditional. We were focused on having personal details and avoided 90% of what the wedding market in Brazil has to offer. The Atelier Raviere, who made our stationery, was an amazing company to work with. They helped us choose our colour palette and developing all the visual identity of the wedding.

The bride’s mother made her wedding dress and she wore a corset from Madame Sher over it. “Since high school I have always been a corset fanatic”, she explained, “I always like to wear them so they’ve kind of become my trademark. I wanted to feel like myself on our wedding day so I knew I had to wear one. My mom made me a classical shaped dress and I wore a black leather corset on top. It combined sexiness and elegance and I felt like Cinderella with a twist!”

Colourful Chilean and Brazilian Backyard Wedding

Colourful Chilean Brazilian wedding (46)

Happy Friday! I think this colourful and fun wedding all the way from Chile is the perfect way to head into the weekend, don’t you? After their chapel ceremony, Trini and Fe hosted their reception at the bride’s parent’s home. They had a small budget, $7000, so they did practically everything themselves.

“We had a very small budget but we wanted to do something very cool”, wrote the bride. “It was totally DIY. The groom’s family all came over from Brazil to Chile for the wedding and so we wanted the whole day to be very chilled out.”

“Our wedding theme was vintage rock”, began the bride. “All the decorations and stationery were handmade by the groom. Our main colours were lilac, blue, green, orange and pink and our bridesmaids and groomsmen all had outfits based on one of the five colours. On the tables we had bottles and homemade lampshades as decorations, we had a wall with photos of us growing up on, and we had a Gibson guitar with our wedding logo on it.”
