^ sharing what the other guests wore^

Let's start the photos from our trip with the main reason for flying south of the equator.
My good friend from pediatric residency married her soulmate in her hometown. It was the right timing. I was not pregnant on my third trimester. I do not have a newborn baby. Lucas had  some of his 1 year vaccinations given during his 9 month well- child check. His pediatrician checked with the pediatric infectious disease specialist to make sure we can give those shots early.

Some memorable things:
I had two dates. My favorite travel partner, hubs, and my baby. We were those international guests who brought a carseat to the church and then to the shuttle, then to the reception. It was bulky and annoying but worth it. Lucas slept for ~an HOUR in the carseat ~ probably around 1130p-1am. We were able to dance without a child on my hip.

The wedding was a full Catholic Mass - mostly in Spanish. One of the readings was in English. But everything else (Gospel, most of the homily, Our Father) was in Spanish.

The groom professed his vows in Spanish.
The bride professed her vows in English.
That was a very sweet, touching intention professing their vows to their significant other's native tongue.

The wedding was at 6p, which meant a late dinner (served at 10p). Thankfully, a very nice spread of hors  d'oeuvres in between.  Besides the usual cheese, fruit and bread, the servers went around with spring rolls, potato balls, shrimp and drinks like pisco sour!

Dinner was amazing! there was lomo saltado, ceviche, arroz con mariscos, chicken, pasta and so much more.

The bride's father and maid of honor gave their speeches in Spanish (with English translation typed out for the international guests). I appreciate that. It's like watching a Spanish movie with English subtitles. I was able to follow along.
The groomsmen gave their speeches in English (with Spanish translation printed for the local guests).

We were all given toritos as wedding favors.

The reception venue was just beautiful! The centerpieces, lighting and dessert table were magnificent!

Dancing was my fave part. well, second favorite after the Wedding Mass.
It was mostly Latin music with a JT, YMCA and Bruno Mars song in the playlist.

The Delimas made it until 2a! The party went on until 4a. I am just proud that D and I made it that late dancing.

Thank you Lucas for being a sweet little one. As long as you were held, we were able to sit and watch performers round up the crowd at 130a. The dance crew gave balloons and little trinkets to the guests.

oh and the dresses ~ we were indeed in Latin America.  There were gowns in yellow, hot pink,  mint green, sparkly black gowns, blues and more!
