Bret was born in New Jersey and I was born in São Paulo, Brazil! What were the odds that we would ever meet?


Our mixed culture is extremely important to me. I try to learn the most I can from him about life in America and I try to teach him the best that I can about life in Brazil! Bret is American, with French, Polish, German and Irish culture in his family history! I’m Brazilian, with Portuguese and Spanish grandparents. Latin blood all the way! You could only imagine the drama!!!


We are applying both cultures everywhere we can. On our Engagement Party, for example: the Engagement Party is rather a Brazilian style affair than American. Since the party is happening in the US, the cake is Brazilian. The food is French, but that’s because the restaurant we went to during our first date is French!
