RAFAELA + OTAVIO
I met Rafaela and Octavio because of an article about Bad Bad Maria in NIT, where I spoke about the concept of alternative weddings in Portugal. Rafaela wasn’t looking for a wedding planner in Portugal, but in the end, she decided to hire me.
In fact, Rafaela was thrilled to find me! She wanted a very simple wedding - an elopement- in Oporto, far away from their country, Brazil. They wanted to celebrate their love and send the pictures to all the family and friends, like a proof of their marriage.
For the elopement, we chose a private house in Oporto with an amazing view to Ponte da Arrábida, and their moment couldn’t have been more special. The bride and groom were so excited, that on the week before they couldn’t resist and decided to tell everybody in Brazil that they were getting married. We did an Instagram Live for everyone to watch it! It was an amazing experience for all! Family and friends send messages, video calls. We prepared an elegant chic decoration with bride's favorite colors - purple, pink and yellow - for me a strange combination but the result was amazing, dont you think?
