Brazilian supermodel and Victoria's Secret Angel 32-year-old Lais Ribeiro got married to former basketball player Joaquim Noah, 37. The marriage ceremony took place in Brazil on Thursday, July 7, in the presence of close friends and relatives of the bride and groom. Among the guests were colleagues of the supermodel on the show Victoria's Secret Candice Swanepoel, Jasmine Tookes and Sarah Sampaio.
Joaquim Noah proposed to his fiancee three years ago at the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert.
The ceremony took place on the oceanfront in Lais's native Brazil, in Trancoso, Bahia. A giant arch of roses was installed on the beach, tables were also placed on the coast and a dance floor was equipped.
Lais was accompanied down the aisle by her father. The model chose a classic wedding dress with a translucent bodice and full skirt. Instead of a veil, the bride decorated her hair with flowers. Both the bride and groom performed the ceremony barefoot.
Previously, the supermodel said that it is especially important for her to celebrate her wedding in Brazil. “I love showing my friends the Brazilian culture, which is so rich in so many ways. My friends and family live in Brazil, so the important people in my life will be able to celebrate this moment, so special, with me,” she told Vogue.
