As the mass was finishing, most of the boys snuck out to "decorate" the car...glad somethings never change no matter what country you're in.
One of the best parts of the wedding was that the bride and groom left the church under the crossed swords of the military while everyone threw rice. It made for some amazing photos and they even had some regional dancers come!
And so did we since we were all dolled up!
Then came the good part, la fiesta! First we started (at 9 pm mind you) with cocktail hour and appetizers. There was a leg of ham, obvs and a variety of other yummy things ranging from sushi to croquetas.
Around 10:30 we moved onto dinner which was set in a beautiful banquet hall. Each person had a card with their picture and a note from the bride and groom. So cute! Let's have a peek at the menu shall we?
Here's the translation:
Gazpacho in a glass of iceFoie with goat cheese, membrillo, and green apple
Turbot fish with a ¨false risotto¨
Mojito and Apple sorbet
Massive steak with aged vinagarette reduction and tempura vegetables
Creme brulee with brandied raisins and icecream
Puff pastry with fresh crea
Don't forget this was all accompanied by red and white whine and cava for dessert. Ah-mazing! The bride and groom even cut their wedding cake with a sword.
Then we moved downstairs to continue the party by dancing late into the night. Did I tell you there was a full open bar? Oh yes. The bride's mother was by my side at 6 in the morning when they kicked us out saying "Pero bueno, una hora mas!" (Come on, one more hour!)
The Spanish may not have that whole efficiency thing down but they sure know how to party. Que vivan los novios!!
