this is impossible to accept. We first saw this place for a wedding at pretty pictures on Pinterest (a social photo sharing site. — Approx. ed.). A very different picture appeared before us in the celebration day: it was a place built on a devastating tragedy. Many years ago we a second time and got married at home, but still tormented by remorse. It’s a fucking giant mistake that may force you to either close in on themselves, or much to rethink and to act. This does not mean that you don’t screw up again. However, the essence of this rethinking is the work that never ends,
— sharing your feelings Ryan.
it is Noteworthy that Internet service Pinterest and wedding portal The Knot last year ceased to actively market the slave plantation Boone Hall in order to avoid incitement to racial scandal. Now in the search bar of Pinterest you just can’t find content on the topic of “plantation for the wedding.” While in the Google search engine still has information about this place, but now in accordance with the new ethics it is accompanied by a banner with a warning that this content may violate company policy.
Wedding should be a symbol of love and unity, and slave plantations do not represent none of the above,
commented on these changes, the representative of Pinterest.

After that, the network sparked intense discussion on this subject: many decided that it was a themed party in a colonial style and others have compared this photo with pictures of the 1860s, when the presence of slaves was considered a sign of high status. After the incident, Donata brought his public apologies and stated that it was not a theme party. Soon representatives of Brazilian Vogue confirmed that Meirelles resigned, and has announced the closure of the working position of the fashion Director because the position was once created specially for her.
