WEDDING DATE: 03.21.2015
GUEST NUMBERS: 280
HOW WE MET: I moved to Sao Paulo in 2007, on that time I was doing my college. When I started to study, i didn’t know anybody there, even one person. On my first class day, I met Biju, who is still my friend, since that time. she was also a new student, that’s why we became friends. I didn’t have friends in Sao Paulo, didn’t know anyone. One day, she called me and said: Lets go out? My gosh, I don’t know her that much, but lets go. Why not? When she picked me up, she said: “Camile, Filipe who plays with Diego (Di Ferrero) lives in your building. I didn’t have any idea who was Filipe, I confess. Well, the times goes and she invited me to go and see their concert, on that show I met him, then we started texting each other and we are here hahahaha. The funny thing is that when I moved, i went to a little grocery store next to my house and when I turned around the corner, I see Filipe, i felt my heart in my mouth, even without knowing him. From that day I do believe in love at first sight. PS: Filipe is guitar of the band NXZERO. It’s a famous band in Brazil.
OUR ENGAGEMENT STORY: Incredible. Every Christmas, we make secret Santa in my family, at the time of Filipe delivers the gift, he began passing along tips on who would be his friend-secret, but in fact it was the engagement ring and proposed to me in front of my whole family. It was super exciting.
