Top 3 tips for future couples:

  1. Be patient with your partner
  2. Be his/her best friend and do things to make them happy (even if you don’t really love doing them)
  3. Enjoy the company of each other, having date nights, making little surprises or just saying a simple “I love you” any time of the day is always welcome and will make your partner feel loved.

 

Based on our wedding planning experiences, what advice would you give people who are still planning their wedding?

Plan everything in advance and let the last 2 weeks before the wedding just to relax.

Describe any personal or special touches that helped make Your Wedding Memorable:

Singing during the vows and dancing a Brazilian dance for the first dance.

The beautiful music Think Out Loud, by Ed Sheeran the was the way Camila has chose to share her vows to Tom. It was a very emotional moment for everyone!

How would you describe the style of your wedding?

Modern and irreverent.

What adjective best describes your spouse on your wedding day?

Tom was emotional and Camila was excited.

Where did you have your wedding? Why did you choose the location?

The Carlyle Club in Alexandria VA. We chose this venue because it’s beautiful inside and outside for pictures, the staff is great and the food is AMAZING!

The Best Thing about the day:

Camila singing “Thinking out loud” during her vows.

What was your color palette and wedding style?

Dark blue, silver and light pink. We had light pink and white roses.

Tell us about your cocktail hour and reception! What was on the menu? Did you have any special entertainment?

We had: Mini crab cakes, tomato basil bruschetta, dijon chicken puff pastry and we imported domestic cheeses, assorted bread, crackers, sauces, and fresh sliced seasonal fruits.

How did you feel when the wedding planning was all over?

Relief.

Which element(s) of your day best reflect you as a couple? What did you do to make guests feel special?

Our first dance was proof that we do anything for each other. Tom learned Brazilian dance and the couple had 10 classes to make it as beautiful as possible. The guests were not expecting that and especially the Brazilians loved it. We made the guests feel special by naming each table with something sweet or fun about each group.

Who decided on the wedding song for walking down the aisle and why?

Camila. I mixed the traditional song with “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran. I think this song is beautiful and is just made sense for us.

What was the most fun detail of your wedding to plan?

The dance for sure.

What is the worst thing that happened on your wedding day, and the best thing that happened?

My veil came off when I was walking down the aisle. It was embarrassing but I could handle it.

The best thing was Camila singing. A lot of people felt emotional and it was the most commented moment.

What was the most difficult detail of your wedding to agree upon?

Flowers or not? =D

After the day has passed, would you have anything you have done differently?

I would make sure my veil was firm and safe enough lol.

What moment of your wedding day did you get anxious the most?

Camila: Walk down the aisle | Tom: The ceremony

 

What are your honeymoon plans?

We are going to Fernando de Noronha – Brazil in April ( After our second reception in Brazil)

  • Safe travels and happy 2nd wedding day for both of you and your loved ones 🙂 

Xoxo, Daysy
