Nan, the spicy Brazilian beauty met Brit, the quiet mysterious man with intense eyes – through a mutual friend. They talked on the phone for hours every night and Brit quickly began breaking down Nan’s walls, dissolving her cynicism towards love… Brit proposed on a romantic trip to the Virginia Countryside, it a small courtyard after a beautiful dinner.
On their wedding day, they would murmur and smile at each other, finding time to connect despite the wedding craziness. Adding to the craziness, the melancholy Caribbean weather kept us on our toes… We had to resort to doing portraits inside, as the rain kept coming down harder each time we tried to venture out – but I love how everything turned out.
Another unique challenge – the wedding was a mix of Americans and Brazilians who couldn’t understand each other for the most part, since most of Nan’s family and friends came from Brazil… but that certainly didn’t stop them from having the greatest time and dancing up a storm! Inviting the Cigar Rollers was a genius idea as well, I don’t think we’ve ever seen anyone enjoying these as much!!
So happy for you two, looking foward to hearing about your family additions in the very near future! Wink wink 🙂
Big thank you to Mayte, Pastor Rick York & Jellyfish staff for pulling off such a beautiful ceremony OUTSIDE!
