Let us transport you to the Caribbean with a Puerto Rican wedding that flawlessly mixes island charm with a timeless aesthetic! Every inch of the day is abundant with inspiration, from the church ceremony to the al fresco portraits. Our favorite part? Elements of the groom’s Brazilian culture incorporated into the reception and the bride’s stunning dress.
Nichole wanted a dress that combined class and elegance with a tasteful, sexy touch and visited True Society by The White Dress – Portland to find her dream gown, Martina Liana Style 1171. This beautiful column silhouette dress flares into a mermaid-like style and features an allover lace design and an elegant yet daring open back that made Nichole feel and look beautiful on her big day!
In front of their nearest and dearest, Nichole and Daniel exchanged vows in Aguada, Puerto Rico, on a sunny summer day! Event planner, Nelida Lorenzo, brought their vision of elegance with a subtle vintage touch to life, while Radamés Sepúlveda from Radfilms was behind the lens, capturing every last detail. Read on to learn more about Nichole and Daniel’s love story and their magical day!
TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL
My partner and I met at a party in college during our studies at Oregon State University in 2014. He was studying mechanical engineering, and I was in the microbiology program. We are both from Latin America, he is from Brazil, and I am from Puerto Rico, so we connected right away. With time we have become best friends and have traveled the world together. Daniel proposed at my grandparents’ home in Puerto Rico
DESCRIBE YOUR BRIDAL STYLE. HOW DID YOU WANT TO LOOK ON YOUR WEDDING DAY? TELL US ABOUT YOUR DRESS SHOPPING EXPERIENCE.
I wanted to look classy and elegant… And that’s exactly how I felt on my wedding day. Martina Liana Style 1171 also showed my figure, which I loved. Very few wedding dresses can make you feel elegant, classy
, and sexy at the same time, but this dress did it!
I loved working with my True Crew bridal specialist at True Society by The White Dress – Portland. She made me feel heard and created a fun experience for my family and me.
IN YOUR OWN WORDS, TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR WEDDING. WHAT WAS YOUR THEME? HOW DID YOU MAKE YOUR WEDDING PERSONAL TO YOUR LOVE STORY?
I know everyone says this, but my wedding day was truly one of the best days of my life. It started a little rocky because we were staying on a property with my family and his, which is like 20 people. However, after the ceremony started, we let the stress go. The moment we saw each other, it all disappeared at once. He is not usually a romantic, but on our wedding day, he didn’t hold back.
I wanted our wedding to feel classic and romantic. I made that possible by including a lot of candles and choosing colors like champagne, gold, and dark green — as well as chandeliers and vintage sofas for the seating area.
Cheers to Nichole & Daniel!
