Grab a snack, because we’ve got a whopper of a wedding for you today. With incredible flowers and bright colors at every turn, Flávio and Rita’s celebration is truly one for the books — and we haven’t even gotten to Rita’s Victorian-inspired bridal look yet! Passionate and Sofia Nascimento for My Fancy Wedding did absolutely wonderful work here, so I’ll let these images do their magic so you can see for yourself.
From Sofia Nascimento for My Fancy Wedding: There’s something quite magical about planning your brother’s wedding and making what you love for someone who you love so much as well! This was one of those magical and memorable days where you needed to be always reminding yourself that the rest of the team was having our back while I was trying to envolve myself simply as the groom’s sis and not a wedding planner!
Flávio and Rita are all about joy and simplicity, enjoying the simple things in life and inspiring others to do it same way and taking the best out of it. When I knew that they were tying the knot I was shocked because there have been 10 years of dating and no rings between either so far so I automatically knew that planning and designing a wedding for someone so spontaneous and apart from the traditional rules for a typical wedding as they are would require some special creative sight from myself to represent them in each detail from the wedding day! We’ve prepared a lot of surprises to the bride through all the decor process and we absolutely loved each step of the way.
The presence of nature, colors, tons of flowers and the warmth from the ones they love the most in this cozy gathering was all they’ve dreamed about and we may say the mission was totally accomplished when the day after Flávio told us that Rita was just crying tears of joy saying she couldn’t have asked for a better day than this was and that she wouldn’t change a thing. And then, again, we knew why the only way to do great work is to love what you do and how grateful we are for being a part of all this.
