Keep this city in mind: Florianópolis. A gorgeous island in South of Brazil, a place that me (Madalena) lived when I was 21 years old. This is actually the most beautiful place I've ever lived! Soft sand, green mountains, perfect waves, really good-looking people, great (sea)food, and I could go on and on about all amazing things you can see, feel and live in this island.
Laura and Antonio are both locals, born and raised in this paradise! Me and Marcelo flew from Canada to Floripa on early April and we kindly asked them to have Santo Antonio de Lisboa as a scenery of their first look, a beach full of character with Azores' spirit.
I personally need to point two things about weddings in Brazil: 1. most of them are at night, all dark and closed places / 2. having a first look is not part of the tradition. That been said, I feel tremendously lucky to get the chance to be the photographer chosen by this lovely couple. Also, I have to be honest that it's suuuuper awesome when couples "meet" Sambajoy through instagram :)
Laura and Antonio danced all night long with their families and friends, you can check their buuuuusy dance floor in this video shot by us:
