It was hot. Very hot... A sun this hot would only be possible in this day alone. We all knew it was going to be a bright day.
I met Mariana many years ago, still at the University, but only a few years back I got to know her at another level. Along with her, came Duarte, who rapidly became a regular presence in my life, and them together, a couple with whom I enjoy being and feel a deep affinity.
Did I get emotional? Yes, I did. How not? The religious ceremony was long, touching... Every single word from the preach, echoed in my ears one hundred times, so spot on they were. The bridegroom's emotion, yet so sure of their decision, withdrew a sigh from every single guest.
A lively wedding, quite unusual as it was so relaxed and outgoing, just like them two. Still, with an exquisite attention to detail, such as Mariana, so singularly beautiful, delicate and feminine, would have wanted it to be in the most beautiful day of her life.
After getting rid of my 15 cm heel shoes, I danced until I ran out of strength and I found so many friends in that space that even though it was not mine, it felt like home. And that alone explains why this wedding was so important for me, because without despising the previous ones, I lived every single moment skin deep, step by step.
The audacity of my choices has revealed itself more classical than initially expected. The Asos BLACK dress, model Sci-Fi hero is unquestionably a unique piece, quite complex to wear. With such dress (and live was considerably more eccentric) I chose black accessories in leather, wavy hair and the hat which seemed perfect for this outfit. The satin shoes were not an easy choice but, as mentioned in the mood board, I had the 60s and 70s in mind. Only such a specific heel will make any sense there. And it did.
All makes sense when the bridegroom's smiles are reflected on their wedding rings. And together with their smiles, the smiles of all those who wish them nothing but the very best and were happy to be part of that moment.
