Peru or Bust, one couple's journey to represent USA abroad and aid in ways small and large.

If you are bored with this site, it's not my fault.

Peruvian Wedding and Slow Walk to Reception and Corpus Procession..

leave a comment »

Really nice wedding service for our friends Nilser Servan and Carolina Calampa.  Power went out for about 1/2 the wedding mass and no one was bothered because they just continued on by candle light.  They took advantage of the gathering and special mass to baptize their daughter Danita as well.

What was nice to see is they signed the wedding documents on the church altar within 30sec of finishing the final hymn.  Rather then having a best-man and best-woman as witnesses, the Peruvian wedding uses ‘padrinos’ or godparents like many important events.  A portable radio was used for the exit which was much more efficient..

The reception was eventually so full that there wasn’t enough seats for the couple hundred that came (and the town is only about 700 people large), but what we thought was interesting is yet again we were apart of the super-slow walk out of the church..  See below..

Then there’s the Corpus Christi Procession..  it too is a slow walk but one filled with music and traditional dance..

Also, stomping on the alfombras or rugs that were put together the morning before..

See my last post for some of the rugs put together this year..
