Congratulations Larissa & Richard

Larissa and Richard are an adorable young couple who tied the knot this weekend in Port Clinton at the beautiful Mon Ami Winery. Their ceremony was held in the wine cellar and the reception took place in the loft upstairs.

Larissa and Richard have a very interesting story! Dave from DNA Entertainment did a "Love Story" about how Larissa and Richard met; Larissa was here on an exchange program when she met Richard. They fell in love, but she had to return to Rio when her exchange was up. Richard missed her terribly and went to Brazil, proposed, and they maintained a long distance relationship until Larissa finally moved to the states this year.

Larissa's family came from Brazil to celebrate with them, and her father (a highly acclaimed musician in Brazil) actually played the processional music on his flute for the ceremony. Each table at the reception was named after a location in Brazil, and we included a photo and description of each place on the table. The favors (brought from Brazil by the family) were candies called "Bem Casado" and sandals called "Havaianas" for each person. All of the guests kicked off their shoes, put on the Havaianas, and danced to American and Brazilian music all night.

Richard surprised us all as he was introduced into the reception with his new wife....wearing a top hat, white gloves, and sporting a cane! It was priceless! The reception was decorated in gold and white, with small accents of yellow and green (Brazilian colors). We created gold rimmed menu cards for each place setting, table names with photos and descriptions, and wine cork escort cards to set up at the entry way.

I know this couple has many happy days ahead, and I feel so lucky that I got to be a part of their first day as husband and wife! FelicitaƧƵes e cumprimentos!
