Shannon + Shaun

Wonderful Farm Wedding in Texas

I am so thrilled to share those pictures with you today. First of all, as me, you’ll probably drool a little bit when going through these (and I promise I had to resign myself to leave tons of equally perfect pictures on my computer that couldn’t fit in this post). Second, rocking chairs, cowboy hats… this wedding just woke up the cowgirl inside me! And what about those Star Wars inspired cufflinks?? :-) Photography by Nirav Patel.

The word of the photographer.

It was absolutely an honor to photograph Shaun and Shannon’s intimate wedding in Texas. Shaun is a star wars loving, music playing, wedding photographer which means we’re practically the same person.  All of our email exchanges ended with “may the force be with you”. Shannon is something else let me say… and I mean that in the best possible way. She’s incredibly sweet, down to earth, fun, and can definitely bust a move on the dance floor. The wedding was certainly everything they had hoped for it to be… a relaxed celebration with their closest family and friends.

A shout out to the man Bradford Martens for helping me capture this day.

French-Brazilian Wedding

No, M + J does not stand for Marcio and Joana! But here’s the wedding of another French-Brazilian couple, Brazilian bride out of Amazonia and French groom out of Poitou-Charentes. The wedding took place in France, which makes it the very first french wedding on the blog. Uhuuuu! Photos by Jean-Laurent Gaudy.



When Amazonia and Poitou Charente meet, what does that give? A bride’s family late at church, but who cares? After his “oui” and her “sim” being exchanged, everybody gathered in the middle of the church to sing Gonzaguinha’s Viver e não ter a vergonha de ser feliz (live and be happy without shame) samba song, which is basically the Brazilian national anthem. A ceremony ending in Brazilian rhythm under a typical French lavender rain!

Name one thing you regret…

No regret… Sun was lacking at the end of the day, though this was more an issue for our Brazilian guests than for the French ones. Let’s just say this was the touch of exoticism seen from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean!

… And one thing you’re really happy about / proud of.

All our guests left the wedding with a typical ring from Amazonia made out of Tucumã wood, which symbolises love and fraternity. This was our gift to them and today, what a pleasure to see them all wearing it!
