40308: Singer Olavo Bilac’s Wedding

On March 22, 2008, the lead singer of the Portuguese rock group Santos e Pecadores (Saints and Sinners) exchanged vows with his angel, Alexandra Baptista, the website Caras reports. The sight of footmen, painted in a mural on either side of the front doors at Quinta de Santa Sofia in São Domingos de Rana, Portugal, welcomed 250 friends and family members who rose in honor of the bride, who clutched a cascade bouquet composed of yellow roses and greenery as she made her grand entrance. The groom, Olavo Bilac, dressed in a black morning jacket and grey trousers, watched his love of the past two years walk down the aisle– the ruffled fabric of her strapless white ballgown and her long, diaphanous veil gently brushing aside the perfumed rose petal scattered on the path which led her to his side.

Following the nuptials, the newlyweds and their guests gathered in a reception room bathed in white for a feast topped with a three-tier wedding cake. As the evening progressed, the groom– who had judged future married couples as they vied for the top prize in the reality series Cantando e Dancando Por um Casamento de Sohno (Singing and Dancing for a Dream Wedding)– took his bride by the hand and walked on to the dance floor for their first dance together as husband and wife.
