The Proposal

Of course asking for someone’s hand in marriage is pretty scary and requires a lot of courage, but Paulo managed to do it just right! It was after lunch at a bistro in Araras, and the couple were just walking back to the car, when Paulo felt the moment was right and got down on one knee and asked Ana Luiza to marry him! Ana Luiza recalls how it was so spontaneous and romantic!

Preparations

Once Ana Luiza had said yes, the couple got the planning underway. They made all their decisions together and decided that they wanted to get married in the evening, in the mountains, opting for a boho-chic style wedding. ‘We wanted a happy and chilled out sort of feel to our wedding’, says Ana Luiza. Having decided their theme, the couple picked out Pousada Parador Santarém in Itaipava as their venue for the ceremony and celebrations. The couple recall how it was the perfect location, with a chapel, wonderful scenery, beautiful gardens and a pool.

Details

Ana Luiza chose a typically traditional and romantic dress from Internovias, while Paulo picked out a pair of beautifully made shoes from Rigor. The bride’s bouquet was put together by Emporio Santa Rosa as well as the groom’s lapel and decorations in the chapel. The furniture that the couple used for the event was from Chiavari, and their stunning cake was one of Casal Garcia’s masterpieces. All these beautiful photographs were taken by Rafael Porto, who the couple picked out especially to document their big day.
