Here is a gallery of some pictures from ANP of the wedding. I like Isabel's idea for the gown, but the sleeves are a bit too large and lacy for my liking.
I hope that they will be very happy.
I like the bride's veil with the lily of the valley flowers secured at the crown- (an "antique" look) But the bell sleeves, have GOT to go!!! The bow at the waist is a questionable detail as well IMHO. Regardless, wishes for a happy marriage to the couple!

Thank you, Jess, for posting these photos so quickly! I agree entirely with your impressions of the dress, but I'll wait to see a full frontal picture of the bride before forming a final opinion.... Much more importantly, the couple looks so happy together! Best wishes for their future happiness.
The bride is very beautiful, but I agree with everyone else about the bell sleeves. I am really curious about the rest of her dress.
The wedding ceremony took place at the Church of the Imperial Brotherhood of Nossa Senhora da Glória do Outeiro (in Rio de Janeiro).
Among the guests were the Duke and Duchess of Bragança (along with the brothers of D.ª Isabel, Afonso and Manuel de Herédia), Prince Jean d'Orleans (Duke of Vendôme, Prince of France), Prince Luitpold of Bayern (not confirmed), the children of the Duke of Parma (Princes Jaime and Carolina of Bourbon-Parma), Prince Jost Christian (the head of the House of Stolberg-Stolberg), as well as several other members of the main families of the Belgian and German aristocracy: Stolberg, Merode, Ligne, Arenberg, Looz-Corwaren, Erbach-Furstenau, etc..

What a lovely bride! Almost girly-like :flowers: Although, like most here, I'm not too happy with the bell sleeves.
But, apart from that, a bride that I find pretty and that is very rare these days. I really like it.
Thank you for the additional pictures. The wedding in the Cathedral was beautiful.
I like the "bell" sleeves. They add a a touch of individuality.
Lilies of the valley have been used in many weddings. I especially like how Princess Isabel used lilies of the valley with her veil. It is graceful when a bride can be creative with flowers.
This is a good marital match and I think they are happily married with children to this day
