Rustic Brazilian Wedding: Renata + João

brazil wedding

We love that we get to share beautiful weddings from all over the world here on GWS. Sometimes they take place in our own Los Angeles backyard + sometimes we’re whisked away to far off places, like Brazil, where Renata + João tied the knot. These lovebirds decided to host their wedding in the same place where they first met, Renata’s family’s country house, and went with a simpler design plan so that the beauty of their surroundings could really shine though. We love the romantic, pastel color story they incorporated + a communal feast of favorite local recipes + delightful cakes and sweets was just right for their laid back, family-oriented celebration.

One of the best decisions these two made was flying their talented photographer, Leo Patrone, to Brazil to capture their day! We just love how all of the pretty photos really transport us right to the beautiful, rustic country setting!
