Wolves Workshop 2021

Wolves Workshop . 2021, La Graciosa, Spain


Can´t properly describe what happened in the last Wolves Workshop, but it’s already a part of me…

Amazing how Pablo and his sweet crew allowed us this kind “a secret about a secret! The more it tells you, the less you know!”.

Every single one of you that were a part of this, has a special place in my heart!

Thank You For Your Life!!

Margaret + João . 2021, Amares, Portugal

About Margaret and João

Margaret met João 11 years ago. João rented a room in Margaret’s apartment in Rio de Janeiro, when he was studying abroad. They have been flatmates ever since!

AMARES SESSAO

They chose Portugal to the big day, because Portugal is their favorite country. They love the people, the food, the wine and the nature. Conveniently, the groom’s family is Portuguese, and it’s also midway between the bride’s and groom’s home countries (Brazil and Germany).

The Wedding

Margaret and João married on August 2021 on the beautiful and elegant Pousada Mosteiro de Amares, in Amares, Portugal. For the wedding, they wanted a special place to people to gather, that felt authentic to them, a reflection of who they are and what they love.

The ceremony was very intimate and emotional. Despite the traditional rings, they both had they vows to each other, and very emotional speeches from closest friends.

The most challenging aspect in the wedding arrangements was the pandemic (accepting and adapting to ever changing restrictions). Besides the pandemic, everything else was quite easy! In their own words, “it helped that the suppliers we chose were absolutely wonderful to work with”.

A funny story

Throughout the wedding planning, several cultural differences emerged. One of them was: the groom’s family (Portuguese), found it essencial to serve tradicional chicken soup as a starter. In the bride’s tradition (Brazilian), you are served this soup when you are feeling sick. So, they ended up compromising with gazpacho.

Ana + David . 2021, Óbidos, Portugal

About Ana and David

Ana and David met each other in Campo de Santana on the first day of University. They both had 18 years old. They became friends and then felt in love. “We started over coffee, we started out as friends. It’s funny how from simple things, the best things begin”.

David comes from Luxembourg, addicted to Manga (anime), soccer and all the games, in general. Ana comes from Caranguejeira, girl scout always playing by the rules! After spending some time together, they became even more geeks (or David turned Ana into a geek…), living in their own world. They are addicted to travel, and together they count already 23 countries in the 5365 days of their relationship.

 

The Wedding


Ana and David married on May 2021 on the beautiful and elegant Hotel Rio do Prado, in Óbidos, Portugal. They told us that the easiest thing for them in all the wedding arrangements was to choose the venue. it was love at first sight.

They both arrived at the venue the day before with their parents, groomsmen and bridesmaids, although they confessed that they deserved a longer stay at the venue in that marvelous master suite.

The religious ceremony took place in Óbidos, in Igreja Santa Maria. They loved the surroundings of this church and its magical touch.

The celebrator met with the couple a few times by Zoom meetings, and soon he became and accomplice and adviser in all of the Wedding arrangements.

During the celebration, he got the couple emotional, surprising everyone by reading excerpts of original love letters from Ana and David to each other.

Geeks as they call themselves, they build their wedding website with beautiful handmade illustrations made by the groom’s sister, and all the info regarding the big day.

The most challenging aspect of all of the arrangements (despite previous cancellation because of the pandemic, of course), was to came up with a theme for the wedding…so…they decided not to a main theme, but including several elements they they loved related to tv series, books, movies, etc.

A funny story

Ana and David ordered the ring carrier from the UK post Brexit, so it is still somewhere in Customs waiting for clearance… The wood box that was actually used, was bought at the last minute.
