Mary and Caio lived next door to each other for twelve years before they had their first date! For their wedding they brought together everything they love; art, music, friends, family, décor and vintage. They had an art gallery of Mary’s paintings, an old Volkswagen in the fields, five bands (which had the groom playing in all of them!), friends leading their ceremony, craft beer, décor items from their house… and they partied for nine hours straight!
The couple’s ceremony was held in a huge open garden, in front of tall trees. Music was also particularly important to the bride and groom, who are both musicians themselves. As well as the gallery of her paintings, the bride got creative with the DIY projects for the wedding. For the table decorations they collected 220 bottles in different shapes and sizes, painted them matte jet black, then dipped them upside down into high gloss red enamel paint and let it run. They then decorated them with some flowers, greenery and other stuff with a note saying that the guests could take them home. The bride also made the wedding invitations using a wood pattern stamp from India.
The size of the couple’s guest list caused them the biggest expense, they had 400 people plus nine hours of parting. However they saved money on décor, as all of it came from the couple’s home and mainly consisted of old typewriters, books, trays, boxes, and a lot of vintage stuff.
