Christine and Scott’s Mexican beach wedding – Part III
Christine and Scott opted for a low-key approach to their ceremony — no bridesmaids, no groomsmen, just a simple and stylish affair on the sand with all of their guests in bare feet. As the sun waned on the Pacific horizon over Playa Palmilla, they exchanged vows before an intimate gathering of friends and family while a string mariachi played on.
Though the ceremony was contemporary, Christine and Scott honored their Mexican surroundings with Mexican wedding traditions performed by a local priest — the traditions of the Thirteen Gold Coins (trece monedas de oro, given by the groom to the bride as a symbol of trust and confidence, signifying he will support her) and the Lasso (el lazo, a large loop of rosary beads worn by the couple in a figure-eight shape as a symbol of love and unity, which binds them together every day as they share the responsibilities of marriage for the rest of their lives).
