The Wedding Biz – 400 DANIELA BRAGA: A Professional Model’s Dream Wedding
Andy has a really fun interview planned for this episode – an interview with the highly successful Brazilian model Daniela Braga! Daniela is based out of New York City and has done campaigns for Givenchy, Balmain, Avon, Pantene, and so many others. She has been featured on the covers of various prestigious magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, V, Marie Claire, and Cosmopolitan in several countries such as the United States, Brazil, Italy, and France. And she has worked with several important photographers in the fashion industry. Daniela also walked four consecutive times in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. She was even cast for the TV show Model Squad on E! in 2018, and in addition to modeling, she is an ambassador for World of Children.
Andy actually had the pleasure of meeting Dany and her husband Adam Freede, as he, with his band Sound Connection, produced the music for their wedding ceremony and reception! She talks with Andy today about how a stranger’s Gucci bag led to not only a friendship but also her marriage to her husband. She also chronicles how she got engaged and how Adam hired an event planner for the night that he proposed to her, how she went about deciding where to get married and how the COVID-19 pandemic affected her decision, and so forth. She also enthusiastically credits the various designers involved in her wedding and how much she loved her stunning wedding dress designed by Galia Lahav and describes her mini-honeymoon (or mini-moon).
Dany also touches upon Vogue having covered her wedding and if and when we might be able to expect that coverage to be published as well as what she looks forward to this year in 2022. Andy had so much fun talking with Daniela about her wedding and is appreciative of her time! Be sure to visit Dany’s website and her social media platforms, and be sure to share this interview with at least three good friends and/or colleagues who might benefit from and/or enjoy it and to leave a top review of the podcast wherever you listen!
