A Very Violet European Wedding by Branco Prata
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

This week’s real wedding of the week will sweep you off to coastal city, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal.  There, Sandra and Juan married in a sophisticated, dreamy celebration filled with shades of violet, plum, amethyst and deep pinks.  The couple entrusted their vision to the Portuguese dream team: Sofia and André of Branco Prata, who designed and captured the day with utter style! Sandra is a biomedical engineer; Juan is a super smart computer guy.  Both have self-proclaimed geek streaks, and they really wanted to celebrate that aspect of their connection amidst all the romance and sophistication.   During the ceremony at the beautiful Monastery Serra do Pilar, Juan offered Sandra a robot, and she offered him a small rooster symbolizing a  Portuguese folk story. They also opted to send not one, but two sets of invites: fancy ones for the family (pictured above) and computer-inspired ones for friends!

The reception at Real Companhia Velha, a restored wine warehouse, was a modern floral haven.  Incredible florals were absolutely everywhere!

The evening just wasn’t complete without a glam rhinestone-studded cake and geek-chic pacman cupcakes!

An Elegant European-Style Dinner Party
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Kerianne and Ryan celebrated their vows with an elegant dinner party held in a grand and very sentimental space: the dance studio that the bride grew up dancing in!  Kerianne is a floral designer, so she had so many ideas going into the planning process. Their shared vision was to have an elegant, English garden themed dinner party. Their mission was simply to share the love between them with their closest friends and family. Laura Parent of Relive Photography captured all the European-inspired, hand-crafted details of the day.The English garden theme really came thru in the florals and reception décor.  The tables were dressed in warm gold lamour linens and Imperial Bee table runners, both hand-sewn by the bride. Kerianne constructed the centerpieces in antique cast iron ivory garden urns.  They were filled with antique colored roses, hydrangeas from a friend’s garden and lush summer foliage.

With the dedicated help of family, friends, and their wedding party, it was a mission accomplished.
