MEXICAN WEDDING

In my eternal quest to survive in MEXICO I sometimes do photo jobs WHEN i’m not guiding tourists. LAST WEEK i shot a wedding in PUEBLA and it was doubly enjoyable as the groom was Italian and the bride was Mexican , two of the most fun loving ethnic groups on earth, in my opinion.

Heres a custom that was added that you usually only see performed in the provinces, dancing  with a turkey. This lady seems worried as to what the turkey might do.

Another classic tradition is taking off the garter and throwing it into the crowd of guests.
