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!”
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.”
Nicole and Caio’s Brazilian wedding was a huge explosion of colour and fun. They planned the entire thing themselves, inspired by 1950s Rock n Roll and rainbows!
“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.”
