Dona Rosa and Seu Russo got married in 1957 in a modest affair which took place in a relative's yard. For the wedding, Rosa’s godmother made her dress and an aunt made the cake after which the family gathered around to celebrate the union. The affair was so simple that they did not employ the services of a photographer.
