In a small chapel off the coast of Brazil, on a small strip of land on the beach in front of a small village lies Garden of Love Chapel. It is the creation of couples who are committed to one another and want to share their lives with one another before starting their married life. In a world where we are bombarded with lots of weddings, parties, receptions, and social events, they decided to make their own special day so that they can enjoy it together.
The Garden of Love Chapel is a small chapel that is decorated with white and light pink colored flowers. In front of the garden are two small reception tables set on either side of a large garden of love statue. Between the two tables is a large crystal chandelier, which creates a stunning aura of romantic and tranquility. Just like the flower garden, the garden of love has plants of various colors. It has a white backdrop with small blue flowers adorning the center.
Before the ceremony starts, a wedding cake, rich in blossom and lotus, is prepared and served by the ‘Coffee Shop Bride’. This will symbolize the beginning of the couple’s married life. A traditional Brazilian wedding cake known as a ‘Tudo de Patos’, is served at the reception. The cake is served in a terracotta pot. The design is a replica of the wedding cake of Brazil.
This would be followed by a luncheon wherein the best man presents his bride with a gold chalice and diamond necklace. A traditional South American flamenco dance is performed by the musicians and dancers. A fire is lit inside the garden as a sign of unity and power. After this, the couple gets married under the presence of a priest and the wedding is celebrated in front of a large crowd.
During the wedding ceremony, there will be a lot of kissing, which is common in most traditional weddings. This can be expressed through hand-written invitations, a live band and beautiful music. A garden of love chapel wedding cake with many tiers is often served for the reception. In some cases, one giant cake is used, but this is not mandatory.
The wedding reception follows a traditional Spanish style. There is a central table where the two families dine together. A family member or a friend is the first to hand over the ring, which is exchanged between the happy couple. Afterwords, there are elaborate wedding dances that involve a band, firework show, maracas, and flowers. There is also a grand feast that is served to the entire wedding party and family.
When the couple finally gets down on one knee, they exchange garlands and give each other’s wedding rings. The wedding cake is then sliced by the ‘Saints’ who are believed to cut the wedding cake and place it under the tree to bring good luck and happiness to the newlywed couple. The Garden of Love Chapel wedding cake is the largest wedding cake that you will ever see and is crafted in the Spanish style of a wedding cake. It is made up of three tiers and decorated beautifully to create a stunning work of art that would make anyone who looks at it go weak on their knees!
The garden of love chapel is one of the most well-known Spanish wedding locations. It is a place that many brides choose to get married. The only problem is that it is so far away from where they live. If you are going to spend your wedding night thousands of miles from where you live, then perhaps it is better for you to consider getting married in a different state altogether like Las Vegas, Miami, or even Hawaii.
