Real Wedding: Natália + Eduardo – A 3-day Beach Wedding in Santa Catarina, Brazil

He’s a pilot by profession. She’s a born traveler. They first met in the air and then reconnected on a trip. Ten months later, an authentic and unexpected proposal happened – followed by a dizzying and excited yes.

And just like that begins the story of Natália and Eduardo, who celebrated their wedding with a party, the company of dear friends and family and the wonderful backdrop of a Brazilian beach. Stay tuned for this breathtaking wedding!

Beach Wedding for a few select friends & family

The groom wanted to celebrate the big day at the beach. For the bride, who works in Destination Weddings, it was easy to start planning everything. They chose Balneário Camboriú, since he is a gaucho and she is from São Paulo, so it was a perfect half-way point for both parties. They decided on 3 days of celebration and joy surrounded by best friends and family.

Precious details

For the bride, the edding photography duo Anna Quast and Ricky Arruda was an absolute no-brainer. She had worked with them before and had noticed how professionally they approach every edding they photograph. In addition to beautiful photos and wonderful albums, she wanted to be surrounded by professionals who really care about the bride and groom, and  who are attentive to the finest details.

Natalia also counted on the advice of Ana Julia Figueiredo so that everything went well before, during and after the celebrations. The Bendito Noivo consultant helped the groom choose his outfit for each occasion, pack his suitcase for the honeymoon trip and they also organized the look and style of the groomsmen, best man and pageboys.

Finding the dress was a big surprise. After lots of searching in stores abroad, it was in Lourdinha Noyama’s studio that Natalia knew: she had found the perfect dress!

Hair and makeup by Júnior Mendes was another wise decision. Everything was as she had always wanted, and she ended up feeling the most beautiful and happy person on her big day.

Intimate ceremony with family participating

The second day, perhaps the most special of all, was perfect. Facing the sea, outdoors, the father of the bride was responsible for the celebration. The beautiful and delicate words took everyone by surprise and the emotion took over those present. Natália’s grandparents carried the rings to the altar, blessing the union and making the moment more unforgettable. There was no way it could have been more special!

Rustic & Sophisticated Décor

The Pousada Guest House, chosen for this wedding, was perfectly decorated with flowers in light colors that contrasted with the wooden furniture, all thought and planned out by Ninha Flor. Sofas and cushions made the atmosphere even more cozy. Of course, there was no lack of space for fun.

On the third and last day, the couple said goodbye to the guests with a Pizza n ‘Burguers. Yes, really! In the pool area, with candles scattered all over, the couple and their friends enjoyed the evening with sandwiches, pizzas and milkshakes.
