What girl doesn’t dream of a magical and elegant wedding? When I think of a fairy tale wedding, I think of my friend Sandra who lives in Brasilia, Brazil. After 13 years of marriage she decided to have the wedding party of her dreams. I simply don’t have words to describe how beautiful, simple and elegant her wedding was. And the best of all? She did it all herself and on a budget. Don’t get me wrong, it was a lot of work. But with a lot of planning, coordination and patience, she was able to put together a beautiful and budget conscious ceremony.


There was so much meaning to every detail. She spent a year collecting items for the decor as well as gathering special things from family and friends. It’s been almost a year since the magical day and why not share with you all the images from that special day! Images speak louder than words and I hope this video inspires you, or someone you know, to plan your own DIY wedding. Enjoy!

Cool N Chic was created to bring people of all backgrounds together through mindfulness, self-development, healthy living and the desire to be fearlessly authentic. Even though I created this blog, it is not mine. It is ours and I welcome you, your wisdom and your energy.
