Love that breaks barriers
“We have always supported each other’s dreams and plans. If you want our advice it’s this: don’t think that your dreams are any less important than your relationship. It’s all about give and take and no matter how crazy the idea might be, it should have just the same value as any other dream”, says the bride. Friendship and companionship was the basis of this wonderful couple and that led Rodrigo to take the plunge and ask Rayane to marry him! Rayane recalls how special the moment was. “Of course I was delighted that Rodrigo asked me to be his wife, but it was also so special that he decided to ask in public considering how shy he normally is!”
