Wedding in Oaxaca

Our friends had a wedding in Oaxaca which was fun and amazingly well appointed. It was a relatively small affair I'm told as many Mexican weddings have a reputation for being huge and even lasting into the next day. It was one of the most swank weddings I've ever been to that's for sure. First of all this is the "Church" the ceremony took place in- not bad. And in case you have your doubts-

check out the inside... Are there enough gilded, encrustations for you?

Also, outside after the ceremony they had some traditional Oaxacan musicians and dancers who celebrate the marriage with these giant puppets (bckgrnd).

The bride and groom enjoy their first dance at the reception on a terrace in one of Oaxaca's more high gloss hotels. The globes of light were a nice touch me thought. Ahhh... weddings: the food, the people, the hosted booze. Everyone goes home happy.
