My cousin celebrated her wedding on November of 2019 in small town in México where she found a wonderfully rustic hacienda. She offered me the honor of officiating at her ceremony.
My cousin also asked my aunt - well versed in the traditions of the Anahuac - to help her select several pre-hispanic ceremonial elements. Then my cousin asked us both to create a hybrid ceremony for her.
I felt so happy being a part of this beautiful example of the strong bond among generations.
My cousin is a Polynesian dance instructor and she has been competing internationally for many years.
These events are about more than just dancing so my cousin has become a very skilled costume designer.
She made her own wedding bouquet.
