Casamento no campo de férias de Flat Rock, Estados Unidos

Deixem-nos contar-vos sobre uma grande aventura que tivémos em Maio deste ano: a Susannah e o Jacob contactaram-nos (a nós, um casal de fotógrafos Portugueses) para ir aos Estados Unidos fotografar o casamento deles. Disseram-nos que iria ser um casamento diferente, que teria muitos detalhes organizados por eles e que apenas queriam juntar a família e celebrar o amor deles. Um desafio como este não nos passou ao lado e aceitámos embarcar nessa aventura e fotografar o casamento (e ainda bem que aceitámos!).
Sendo eles fãs de campos de férias enquanto miúdos, decidiram que o campo Wayfarer em Flat Rock, na Carolina do Norte, seria o local perfeito para o casamento. Assim planearam um fim-de-semana inteiro com os entes queridos e quiseram que toda a gente participasse de alguma forma.
Uns meses antes fizeram um site para o casamento com indicações do que vestir e levar para o campo e foi uma ideia maravilhosa porque os convidados já iam entrando em modo de “campo de férias” mesmo antes de começarem a fazer as malas! Foi um casamento de 3 dias: sexta e sábado foram dias para as pessoas se ligarem, juntarem-se e conhecerem-se mas também para organizar algumas coisas para domingo. Na sexta-feira fomos apanhar flores silvestres para que no domingo de manhã alguns convidados pudessem fazer os arranjos florais para a sala. A Susannah e o Jacob formaram as equipas e planearam actividades para que os convidados pudessem interagir e ligar-se em torno das mesmas (o Jacob desenhou uns pins maravilhosos que funcionaram como medalhas para quem participava e ganhava os desafios). Tiro ao alvo, arco e flecha, um blob gigante no lago e construção (e corrida!!) de barcos de cartão foram algumas das actividades que divertiram e deliciaram toda a gente. O domingo de manhã foi iniciado com jogos de campo e mais tarde toda a gente foi dividida em grupos para ter aulas de dança, arranjos florais ou fazer as decorações no ginásio para a dança. Toda a gente ajudou com alguma coisa!

Foi uma aventura inesquecível que mal podemos esperar para repetir. Continuamos a sonhar com aqueles espaços, a experiência, as pessoas (e como toda a gente cuidou de nós, como se fossemos membros da família) e a simplicidade de um casamento emocionante feito com muito amor.

É um blog post longo por isso peguem num cobertor, uma chávena de chá bem quente e desfrutem!

Summercamp wedding at Camp Wayfarer in Flat Rock, North Carolina

Let us tell you about a huge adventure we had in May of this year: Susannah and Jacob contacted us, a Portugal based wedding photographer couple, to go to the USA to shoot their wedding. They told us it would be a different wedding, that would have a lot of small details and that they just wanted to get the family together and celebrate their love. We’re always looking for new challenges and adventures so we accepted to go there and shoot their wedding (and we are super happy we did!).
Being big fans of summer camps themselves as kids, they decided that Camp Wayfarer in Flat Rock, NC, would be the perfect setting for their wedding so they planned a weekend with their loved ones and wanted everyone to participate in some way. Doing a website for the wedding was a great idea (with all the information the guests needed) so everyone could get into summer camp mode even before they started packing bags. It was going to be a 3 day wedding: Friday and Saturday were days to connect, get together and get some of the things ready for Sunday. On Friday morning we went flower picking with them and the plan was to get wild flowers so that on Sunday morning some of the guests could make the flower arrangements themselves and participate in the process. Susannah and Jacob also created teams and planned activities for people to interact and bond over these activities (and Jacob designed lovely pins that worked as merit badges for everyone who entered or won the challenges). These activities included archery, riflery, a giant blob in the lake and the funnest cardboard boat building (and racing!). On Sunday morning we started with field games and later everyone was divided into groups to have dance lessons, flower arranging or taking care of decorations in the the gym for the dance. Everyone chipped in with something!

It was an unforgettable adventure we cannot wait to do again. We keep dreaming about those places, the experience, the people (how everyone took care of us, as if we were family) and the simplicity of a heart felt and emotional wedding.

It’s a long blog post so grab a blanket, a warm cup of tea and enjoy!

No programa de sábado estava planeado um concurso de talentos e cantar, dançar, cozinhar, tocar um instrumento, improvisar teatro, fazer rap ou acrobacias estava em cima da mesa desde que toda a gente participasse de alguma forma. Um serão inesquecível, cheio de pequenos momentos maravilhosos e com um toque especial.

Saturday night included a talent show and singing, dancing, cooking, playing an instrument, improvising theater or rap was all on the table, as long as everyone participated in some way. An evening to remember, filled with little wonderful moments and a special touch.

Uma das surpresas da noite foi a música que a Tiffany escreveu para o Jacob, a pedido da Susannah. Não houve ninguém que não tivesse chorado!

The surprise of the night was a song that Susannah asked Tiffany to write for Jacob. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room!

um casamento pode ser muita coisa, mas se for um acto de partilha, então é muito mais do que isso. Estas fotos são isso - partilha, festa e natureza bonita, que une a todos. Parabéns Marina e Pedro, acredito que foi uma aventura marcante.

depois disto tudo só posso dizer que, quando for grande, também quero um casamento (e fotos!) assim :)
