a few weeks ago we finally mailed all our friends and family our official Engagement Announcement card! here it is:

vanessathe card was created by designer Lisa Nelson, from My Little Buffalo!

I noticed the card took a long time to be delivered in Brazil! also, a few people got confused and thought the card was the engagement party invitation! this was our official announcement and the invitation should arrive in Brazil this week!

all our vendor’s info is here!




all our guests are invited to post pictures online, on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with the hashtags:






to inactivate more interactivity, we sent our engagement announcements inside a colorful envelope with a bag of confetti attached to it! here are the hilarious pictures, and even a movie! our friends posted online!

here is what we sent out:
