Just Get Me to the Church on Time!

A Wedding in Arandas, Jalisco, Mexico

Whatever it is, tequila probably can't fix it, but it's worth a shot! - Jimmy Buffett

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

You can't taste tequila everyday, even when one is visiting through the Golden Triangle of Tequila-making.

We are, in Arandas, Mexico, part of the glorious Mexican Highlands, having some dinner in an upstairs restaurant not far from the San Jose Obrero Church.

All of a sudden we hear the familiar "clip-clop" of horses' hooves outside our balcony window.

Looking down at the street, what do we see?

A bride, a groom and the whole wedding party on horses, going to the Church for a Saturday evening wedding!

Wedding Party on horseback

Have you ever seen anything like this?

A Bride, the Groom and the Wedding Party all on horseback on their way to the San Jose Obrero Church for the wedding.

Notice the lime green ankle coverings on the center horse.

Two more riders

Maybe this is the Best Man riding alongside the Maid of Honor.





But the horses and people keep coming!

Seven horses so far... and counting.

This must have been so exciting to ride all together through town from the horse stables to the Church.

Ten horses in all!

The beautiful bride

Here's the gorgeous bride, off her horse and in perfect poise. How did she not mess up her hair on that horse ride?

We wandered in off the Plaza and into this crowd, and everyone was so dressed up. I thought I was at a premiere in New York City.

It was a very classy crowd.

Always a family affair

In Mexico, every gathering is a family affair. Members of every age, from newborns to great-great grandparents attend. And in this case, everyone is in their finery.

We are Retire Lifestyle Mentors. Our goal is to help you achieve your retirement dreams.

The limousines were on the street to the right, waiting to transport everyone to the reception.

(I wonder what happened to the horses?)

The wedding party from a distance.

These last few people trailing out of the Church are conversing before riding to the reception.

Photos are probably being taken inside the Church, soon to be added to the family album.

What a delightful event to have stumbled upon... twice!

I am sure there will be tequila served at the reception.
