This is a continuation from, well Part I of course.

Moving on to the bridal party photos, couple photos, and finally the reception photos! I don’t even know where to begin with the reception photos. There were a LOT of people and not a drip of alcohol. For most weddings that would be a recipe for a really bland reception. Contrarily, this is the most EXCITING reception I have ever witnessed. I have never in my life seen such craziness (in a good way.) Now, I’ve been to a number of weddings at this point of my life, but there was no way I was ready for what happened at the reception!

They had dances called “Baile del guagolote” “La vivora de la mar” and “Xochipitzahualt.” These dances are in fact as crazy as they sound. At one point they had rubber chickens and broom sticks and half of the reception attendees on the dance floor. The bride and groom were also tossed REALLY high in the air. I can’t even fully explain to you what was going on even though I was there for hours. But I can tell you that it was a LOT of fun. Congratulations again Diana and Alex!

I’ll let you enjoy the photos now. icon smile Diana and Alex Part II (Wedding)

First off, I’m back from Hawaii, which may be a surprise to some of you because I didn’t really announce it on my blog.  Aloha! It was amazing and I will be blogging about that later.

I am very excited to introduce to you all Diana and Alex! And let’s talk about excitement! Diana was so excited when I got to her house for photos. She was wide-eyed, super-smiley, and jumpy. Probably similar to how a preteen girl would act if she was waiting in line to see Justin Bieber. She was also extremely eager to help me with all the detail photos. It was kind of funny, and it made me smile.

When her father came to the house to bless her it was the most beautiful thing I’ve heard, and even though I couldn’t understand a word of it (because it was all in Spanish) it was still very touching and moving. There’s a silhouette photo below of the moment right after the blessing.

The first post for their wedding covers from getting ready to the Mass. I’d say it’s pretty normal so far, but wait till I get to the reception photos. It is by far the craziest reception activities I’ve ever seen in my life.
