|View of a wedding procession from outside the front door of a house that I am staying at in San Miguel de Allende.|
In San Miguel de Allende,
The bride and groom were surrounded by friends and family and almost everyone had a small ceramic shot glass of Tequila. A donkey was also walking towards the front of the procession with two boxes full of tequila bottles over its back and sides. An important part of the procession for sure.
Both the bride and groom are leading the large group. The tall figurines are also close to the front of the procession, as is the donkey. Tequila servers make sure that glasses are not empty when desired to be full.
There is signing, band music - mariachis playing, laughing, and the type of mood you would expect for a wedding procession.
If you are a tourist and caught in the middle of one of these, stand aside, and don't be too obvious taking photos to respect the dignity of the event. Since I was in my doorway I was not visible by most, so was able to sneak in a few shots. Photos shots, not tequila shots :) Although I am tempted to toast the bride and groom after I get my thoughts and photos down on this page. Stay tuned.
