Today we start a new feature: Wish Wedding, where we will show you an imagined/wished wedding. You know that area of online shops where you can create your wish list? Well, that’s the idea. Starting from something, wedding related, that inspires us we will create a Wish Wedding that will serve you, both, as inspiration and as entertainment. In most cases I will be the one creating those visual and written stories, with ficcionated characters but, in time, I will have some guests posting their own Wish Weddings. Sounds great, right? Without further ado I leave you TD Wish Wedding #1. Enjoy!
Isadora and Fred are both Brasilian and met through Instagram. Fred is a financial analyst in an international company who operates in Brasil and the USA. He is always travelling and likes to disconnect from numbers, whenever he cans. He lets is creative alter ego run free in his instagram gallery, full of magnificent photos of buildings. Fred has a passion for architecture.
Isadora is a renowned investigator in the field of renewable energy and works between Portugal and Brasil. Just like Fred, Isadora has a thing for instantaneous photography and it is her main leisure activity. Her instagram account is minimal and graphic. She photographs patterns, colors and graphisms she finds in her daily life. They can’t remember how they ran into ieach other on social media but as in instagram a photo pulls a conversation and a conversation pulls another one, eventually they met live in an instameet held in São Paulo. It was love at first sight!
Their first trip together was to Portugal. They were enchanted by Alentejo. Although they both have technical jobs, out of work they are very connected to the land and to nature as a whole. They enjoy outdoor activities and exploring nature. Whenever they can they travel to do so. On this trip to Portugal they stayed at Herdade do Vau, near Beja, and felt so right there during those two days that they imagined their wedding there.
Fred admired the unique architectural details and Isadora was delighted by the surroundings and the privacy of the place. There, they thought they could spend a few days with their guests, enjoying each other’s company with plenty of privacy. They wanted a mini wedding: Fred would invite 10 people, and Isadora other 10. With the help of a Portuguese wedding planner they organized a civil ceremony and the party from a distance via email and skype. In six months they came back and celebrated their marriage in a country + casual chic setting.
