It was hard but it was beautiful
Patrícia and João planned a great party but the pandemic opposed their plans. They adjusted, persevered, and had a beautiful wedding at the end of Summer.
On a sunny day at the end of September, they got ready and gathered family and friends, although a smaller number than what they had wished and they had two ceremonies in one.
João was baptized and immediately after that the two of them became husband and wife.
The ceremony happened at Batalha's monastery, possibly with the most enthusiastic priest I have ever heard speak, and I've heard a lot! Everyone was in a good mood at that ceremony!
The reception took place at Quinta de Santo António do Freixo, close to Leiria, prepared by Iguarias do Tempo, where after the arrival of the bride and groom, they cut their cake and were properly blessed by a few raindrops. :)
The high spirits were constant throughout but there were a special number of laughs during the video that was prepared for the bride and groom by their family and friends. It's funny how weddings are often the perfect excuse to dig up the little treasures of the past.
There was quite a bit of celebrating and there were even some that didn't get off the dance floor even when they got tired. ;)
