The Great Mexican Wedding Adventure -- Part 5

The women of the bridal party, family, and might-as-well-be-family started out Saturday morning at Casa Encantada getting manicures and pedicures, a gift from the bride.

Later we met up in the park with the guys and checked out the art scene.

Mark and I bought a print from the younger half of this father/son team of artists/expats. There are lots of artists and expats as well as the combo, like these guys, in San Miguel de Allende.

And then we all cleaned up and went back to Casa Encantada for a wedding!

After the ceremony we headed up to the roof to be serenaded by a mariachi band, to have fabulous things to drink and to eat, and to enjoy each other and the view.

Then it was back down to the ground, where everyone stopped by the tequila tasting table and then settled down onto the lounges for a delicious buffet dinner.

And some great dancing -- the first dance by Jesse & Thom -- and lots more.

Later we all made another trip to the roof, this time for hot chocolate, churros, and the nighttime view, lit up with fireworks!
Then it was time for the hot and funky Pilaseca!

We all danced for hours.
And of course there were those masks....
