Professional interpreter

Costa has been a professional interpreter of Brazilian sign language since 2016 and since many guests in her wedding were deaf, and some were blind, she did her best for them as a bride. A special hymn was also sung by the choir as the couple stood on the altar and reportedly Costa also broke that into sign language for the guests. The Brazilian bride later told an international entertainment website that when the choir started playing 'Hallelujah to the Lamb', she looked at her guests with special needs and realised that she is a part of their lives too. Costa then immediately handed over her bouquet to Wagner, the groom, and then 'sang' with them in sign language.
