"After deciding to keep our relationship private, we opened the doors to them on a special day 28/10/22," read the caption written alongside the video shared on Instagram. The caption is accompanied by a heart, ring, and star emoticons.
Mariana is seen wearing a white mini dress adorned with rhinestone fringes for the occasion, while her wife Fabiola sported a white blazer with black slacks.
