On Easter Sunday Hub and I went to celebrate the Brazilian nuptials of our dear friends Mariana and Johnny. The ceremony and reception was held at a colonial house in Botafogo and I absolutely loved the style and feel of the wedding, which Johnny proudly pointed out "is all Mariana."
Our friend Elika told us to be prepared to have lots of sweets at the wedding, which is tradition in Brasil. This here is the table of bem casados, translation happily married and it was like a scene straight out of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette.
To me the wedding had a spring English country side theme (Johnny is English) and Mariana nailed it in every little detail. Ahead of the wedding we were served fresh lemon and mint water out of these cute polka-dot mason jars.
The Queen was also present and gave her blessing.
Miguel and Arthur, the ring bearers.
The ceremony closed with a lil' prayer as we wished M&J a happy journey into marriagedom.

Thank you Mariana & Johnny for letting us be part of your special day.
