Today was the day of the wedding, well rather the ceremony happened yesterday. It is currently 1:30 in the morning here in Avila and the dancing portion of the evening has just started! we will be going back downstairs to dance for a bit. We needed a rest! Weddings here last all through the evening. (The ceremony was at 6:30 pm.) We have had the best time!!! It has been the coolest once in a lifetime experience and I am so glad we are here.
To start our day we had a yummy breakfast at the hotel. The food was all so delicious and a lot of it new to us. The fresh cheeses and fruits were my favorite. After breakfast, we walked around Avila a little bit. It is so beautiful here.
To prepare for the wedding today, all of the "Americano" ladies went to the salon. We got our hair done for all of the festivities. It was quite the experience as no one in the salon spoke English, and none of us are fluent in Spanish. The stylists were all very patient and everyone got a good laugh.
The ceremony and reception have lots of traditions that I don't completely understand, but it was something new every few minutes! We loved every second of it. Below are some picture of our day.
