Our First Ecuadorian Wedding

Posted by on November 18, 2011

This past weekend we traveled to Santo Domingo for our first Ecuadorian wedding.  Flor (whose name translates “flower”), who works in the snack shop at the campgrounds, was getting married and had invited us.  It was a wonderful experience as it was a beautiful wedding and a great cultural experience.  There are many similarities with weddings here as compared to the States but there are also many differences.  It was also neat to see many of our good friends all dressed up as a lot of the Rocha family were involved in the wedding.  Here are some pictures so you can get a glimpse:

The beautiful wedding aisle.





After we got there, we found out that for the wedding we'd be using our car to deliver the bride to the end of the aisle. Here's Joel helping her out.




Simeon and Lisseth, the oldest Rocha daughter who was a bridesmaid.












Simeon and Karin, the second to youngest Rocha daughter.






The Rochas, Ruben and Amaparo, looking all snazzy.









Simeon and his partner in crime from Santo Domingo, Rubi, the Rocha's youngest daughter.




Us, happy with good food at the reception.
