Brazilian Save-the-Date Film by Par Filmes

Save the Date gone glam, this film by Par Filmes is the epitome of chic. It’s cinematography with style, and sweet as all get out. Can you imagine getting something like this to announce the day a couple was tying the knot? It’s just beyond. It’s all style and sweet sentiments, so get cozy and get ready for some serious heart fluttering…

From Par FilmesThis is Kelly and Felipe, and they will marry on September 29th. They work together at a fashion brand, and they asked us to make them a save-the-date film inspired by vintage cinema and fashion editorials. We loved this idea and booked a real vintage hotel room at Belo Horizonte, a big city in Brazil. Finally, to make everything still more special, the groom wrote a letter to his bride, but she didn’t know anything about it beforehand. It was a real surprise!

From efeunodos photographyThis is a very special wedding because it was done in one of the most beautiful towns of our country. It’s a small very well-kept colonial town called Barichara, it’s located between the mountains very close to Parque Nacional del Chicamocha, a gorgeous natural park. The bride’s name is Maria Juliana and the groom’s name is Luis, they both live in Bucaramanga a city about 2 hours from Barichara by car. They decided to get married in Barichara because they wanted a wedding with a lot of personality and in a place that would be different from the city and they chose well!

They got married in the main church of the town plaza, a beautiful and huge colonial church, everything was decorated in beige and pink, pink symbolizing Maria and beige symbolizing Luis and their union. They used organic materials such as felt, and a local fiber called Fique for the decorations. The bouquet, boutonnieres, flower girls headpieces and flower girls shoes decorations were hand-made by request of Maria Juliana by Puro Love. The wedding reception took place at the lovely Taller de oficios de Barichara, a big house that works as a school for local artisans and crafters, they divided that venue in several rooms each having the name of a different craft such as: cooking, pottery, carpentry, etc.

The bride and groom met an hour before the ceremony in a colonial house to take some pictures, after the ceremony they walked the 2 blocks to the venue with a typical town band playing music and all the guests followed. The men were dressed in Guayaberas, typical Colombian attire that is considered formal in warm weathers and that looks amazing because all the guys wear white. After a toast by the bride’s father,  dinner was served and the party lasted until 4:00 am.

San Andrés Island Wedding by efeunodos photography

Now this is my kind of party.  The festivities went on until two in the morning, only because the venue kicked them out, and moved to a near by bar to keep the good times going.  Before then, there was a romantic, seaside ceremony and reception with simple but oh-so chic decor.  efeunodos photography photographed every dreamy and mesmerizing moment including a personal firework show put on my the bride’s brother and father.  Click here to see even more from this epic San Andres Island affair!

From efeunodos photography… The bride was born and raised in San Andrés and the groom is from Bogotá, they got married in the afternoon in San Judas Church, and after the ceremony they rode a small bus around the island with their wedding party, drinking champagne, and taking pictures in several beautiful locations. Susana, the bride, bought chinese umbrellas for her bridesmaids, and although the weren’t dressed alike they all had a tropical flower on their heads to distinguish them as bridesmaids. Felipe’s (the groom) groomsmen were wearing Guayabera shirts, a white shirt made of cotton or linen that’s typical from the caribbean coast, perfect for the hot weather.

The party was in a private beach called Rocky Cay that belongs to Decameron Hotel.  They first had a welcome cocktail for their guests: sangría, and tropical juices. Afterwards, they served dinner which was delicious, filled with caribbean specialties such as Fruto Pan (bread fruit), lobster and Cherna (a type of fish) with crab sauce. It was really delicious.

The decoration was very simple but elegant, you didn’t have to work that hard in decorating the place, since it was on the beach with the ocean and a beautiful moon reflecting on it.  The centerpieces were local white flowers with white hydrangeas and roses set over white linen table clothes with a light brown and white print of twigs and leaves.

After the toast and speeches were made, Susana’s father and brother (they work with fireworks) lighted an astonishing display of fireworks that lasted a long time and left all the guests mesmerized.

Afterwards the party began and the music was great music from the Caribbean such as danzol, reggaeton, and other tropical rhythms in charge of a great DJ.  The party went on until 2:00 am when we got kicked out of the venue and went to La Perla bar, a beautiful bar with a great view of the sea at night.
