Ana & Lucas | Intimate Wedding with 9 people and 1 dog

An intimate wedding in Salema, Algarve was the dream wedding of Ana and Lucas. Their story is so good that we’ll let Ana tell you!

We met last Christmas , I know very soon!!! Love is crazy. I am american and lived in America for 25 years but I speak fluent spanish and portuguese . My parents retired early to spain in 2015 and during that time I traveled many times during the year to see them. One of the times that I came ( December of 2015) I met Lucas in our village Celanova. I was from NY, he was from Celanova. I came to Celanova every summer since I was born and I NEVER met him. And we lived one mile away from each other during the summers.

When we met we knew there was something special , apart from being from the same village, there was something in him that made me feel so at home, being so far from my home in America. We saw each other secretly for a few days to avoid drama in the village, and one day the asked me to go to Portugal with him for the weekend . I said YES, he took me to Peniche. A small fisherman town , filled with surfing and great food. I fell in love with him there , just him and I , no friends, no family, no one to judge us , just us. It was the realist thing I had ever felt, and I knew that if I let this man go, my life would somehow be incomplete forever . But I had to leave, I was a teacher in America , I had an apartment , my friends and I needed my routine back. So I left that Christmas , incomplete. One month later I began emailing schools in Galicia , I got a job AND we decided that we had to give it a try.

I left America after I finished the school year, I packed my entire life into 8 boxes  and I bought a one way ticket on Tap.com
It was the most spontaneous thing I had ever done in 25 years. My parents were in shock but so happy for me, they love Lucas like their own child. One year later December 2016, Lucas took me back to Peniche where we had first fallen in love. After having breakfast on the balcony, he proposed and I cried for 20 minutes and kept asking him ” are you sure ..??” I said yes , and decided on spending the rest of my life with the person that needed to be my husband. Home ended up being right where my life first started — my roots– Spain.
I now have a teaching job in Galicia, I am happy and we live together in a beautiful duplex filled with love and black and white photos.
I hope this short story helped you understand how we met and how much this day means to me.

I didn’t want to do a big wedding , I want a beautiful home with my intimate family, dogs, great food , wine and the beach .

️ We would be nine people at the wedding and one dog.

Um casamento íntimo em Salema, no Algarve, era o casamento de sonho da Ana e do Lucas. A história deles é tão boa que deixamos que seja a Ana a contar-vos!

Conhecemo-nos no Natal passado, eu sei muito cedo! O amor é louco. Eu sou americana e vivi nos EUA nos últimos 25 anos mas falo fluentemente espanhol e português. Os meus pais reformaram-se em 2015 e foram para Espanha e eu viajei muitas vezes durante esse ano para os ver. Umas das vezes (Dezembro de 2015) eu conheci o Lucas na nossa vila Celanova. Eu era de Nova Iorque, ele de Celanova. Eu vim para Celanova todos os verões desde que nasci e NUNCA o conheci. E nós vivemos a dois quilómetros um do outro.

Quando nos conhecemos sabíamos que era especial, para além de sermos da mesma vila, havia algo nele que me fez sentir em casa, mesmo estando tão longe dos EUA. Vimo-nos secretamente durante uns dias para evitar drama na vila e um dia ele convidou-me a ir até Portugal, durante o fim de semana. Eu disse SIM e fomos até Peniche. Uma cidade de pescadores, com surf e boa comida. Apaixonei-me por ele lá, só ele e eu, sem amigos, sem família, sem ninguém para nos julgar, só nós os dois.  Era a coisa mais real que eu já havia sentido e sabia que se deixava este homem ir, a minha vida ia ficar incompleta para sempre. Mas eu tive de ir, eu era professora nos EUA, tinha um apartamento, amigos e precisava da minha rotina de volta. Fui embora nesse Natal, incompleta. Um mês depois comecei a enviar emails para as escolas na Galiza, consegui um trabalho E nós decidimos dar uma hipótese à relação.

Deixei os EUA depois do ano lectivo acabar, encaixotei a minha vida inteira em 8 caixas e comprei um bilhete de ida na Tap.com.

Foi a coisa mais espontânea que fiz em 25 anos. Os meus pais estavam em choque mas felizes por mim, adoram o Lucas como um filho. Um ano depois em Dezembro de 2016, o Lucas levou-me de volta a Peniche onde nos apaixonamos. Enquanto tomávamos pequeno almoço na varanda, ele pediu-me em casamento e chorei por 20 minutos enquanto lhe perguntava”tens a certeza?” Eu disse sim e decidi passar o resto da minha vida com a pessoa que tinha de ser meu marido. A minha casa acabou por ser onde a minha vida começou, as minhas raízes, em Espanha.

Agora sou professora na Galiza, sou feliz e vivemos juntos, num lindo duplex cheio de amor e fotos a preto e branco.

Espero que esta pequena história vos faça entender como nos conhecemos e o quanto este dia significa para mim.

Não queria um casamento grande, quero uma bonita casa com a minha família mais próxima, os cães, boa comida, vinho e praia.

Vamos ser nove pessoas no casamento e um cão.
