We love the story behind this couple too much not to share it with you. After enduring a long-distance relationship for five years, Lais and Davi were eventually able to celebrate their love for one another with the wedding they had both always dreamed of.
Davi put in a lot of thought and effort when it came to asking Lais to marry him. In fact he organized a surprise engagement party to which he invited 150 friends and family members. Lais recalls how utterly thrilled she was to have all her best friends and family there when Davi popped the question: “I couldn’t have asked for a more romantic gesture!”
Having gone through the whole preparation process pretty calmly and without much stress, Lais and Davi recall how they found the big day quite nerve-wracking, although Davi remembers how as soon as he saw Lais beginning to walk down the aisle, all his fears subsided. The ceremony took place in a beautiful glass gazebo at Villa Valentim in São Paulo with all their closest friends and family there. “It was perfect,” says Lais, “it was everything we had ever imagined”.
The couple chose Villa Valentim on account of its size – it had the perfect capacity for the kind of wedding we had in mind and the space has been designed in a timeless and classic style with chandeliers and large mirrors made which was exactly what we had mind in terms of theme.
To avoid being stressed about the minutiae of your big day, Lais and Davi made sure that they had a group of the best suppliers to help them plan their day whilst also managing to stay within budget. Lais recommends getting some close family members to help out too, to lighten to load and to make your nearest and dearest feel like they’re involved in such an important day!
