Wedding Talk: Our reception location!

I haven’t seen it or been to our reception spot.  Oh, the joys of planning a wedding out of the country…  Since my parents picked the reception location, I have googled my heart out for pictures of it.  This was the best picture I had found:

This is from their outside area, gorgeous, right?

Today, I went and googled for images again, and turns out that I found a blog that posted pictures of a wedding there.  The place?  Still awesome…

My reception is at Cais do Oriente Restaurant, which is in a historic building in downtown Rio.  We have the whole place to ourselves!

I just love the lighting!

Inside the restaurant:






The outside area/dance floor.  It apparently has a glass ceiling that closes up in case of rain.

    Gosh-how beautiful! You inspired me to Run a slow 2 miles today. Question: You are super lucky to have found “the one”! Any helpful hints/advice for the rest of us who haven’t yet? I’m in a good place right now and am 42 yrs. old. (Insert Charlotte York’s character’s voice from, an episode of “Sex and the City”- ”

    Where is he already?!”

    (Hee, hee.)


    • The only thing I can tell you is the old cliche: you’ll meet someone when you’re least expecting it.

      Seriously… I met Karl at a dive karaoke bar when I was having a bad hair day, a fat day, and was super grumpy. I was about to leave when he approached me.

      So you never know — just remember, that as much as sometimes we want to stay home on the couch watching a movie on our own, we don’t actually meet anyone unless we suck it up and go out even when we don’t feel like it.

  2. GORGEOUS!!!! It’s so beautiful!
