Brazil is home to breathtaking views, delicious food, and possibly, inspiration for your wedding! This enchanting editorial designed by Styling de Eventos was inspired by the traditions of Brazil’s sertão region – an area to the Northeast of the country known for its lively and rich culture.
Not only is this shoot visually stunning, but it serves as an ode to the magic to be found right in our backyards! Amora Photo e Film effortlessly captured the beauty behind the colors, textures, and vibe of the sertão region. Let’s dive into it!
Blues and peaches can be found all throughout Brazil’s landscape. Here, it becomes a mainstay for colorful wedding inspiration! Roberta Formicola designed these delicate invites with simple, modest details.
This area to the northeast of Brazil is most known for its drought-stricken landscape and impoverished population. Through these hurdles, the people of Sertão have an incredibly rich culture that has greatly impacted Brazil as a whole.
This embroidered gown by Pó de Arroz uses fabric and appliques typical to the region. It offers a soft, romantic look for modest brides. Rafael Vianna of Styling de Eventos tells us, “The particular dress I chose for the shoot shows some symbols inspired by a local art [style] called ‘xilogravura’ (xylograph), such as the bird, the heart, and the word ‘amor’ (love).”
A matching polka dot veil is the perfect choice to pull the look together! If you’re struggling to find the right veil for your wedding, we did the work for you!
A fun and quirky sense of groom style is perfectly suited for this wedding’s atmosphere.
An Enchanted Backyard
There’s nothing more intimate than marrying in your own home!
The humble surroundings allowed what really mattered (the love between two people!) to be front and center. It doesn’t take a lot of frills to make a truly stunning wedding.
Simple gold bands perfectly complement the laidback vibe.
Sweet Little Details
A small floral arrangement by Poppy Flower featured a calla lily in the center.
Native wildflowers took center stage in this flowing, lively floral display. This arrangement can be replicated to represent the location that means most to you in your life!
Authentic, handmade ceramics were used to create this beautiful tablescape.
Small embroidered pieces on each place setting featured a different marriage-centric word. ‘União’ translates to ‘union’.
A Yummy Sendoff
Food is a universal unifier! Introducing traditional food from where you or your family grew up is an easy (and incredibly delicious) way to show your guests something that truly means something to you and your new spouse.
These yummy-looking treats are also absolutely adorable!
We’ll leave you with a note from event designer Rafael Vianna:
In short, every single detail was thought to create a unique atmosphere, at the same time modest and graceful, aiming to show that it’s possible to have a small celebration full of meaning and originality in anyone’s backyard.
We hope you found as much inspiration in this as we did! If you’re looking for even more wedding inspo, we’ve got you!
