Diana and Marco got a married twice! First a traditional Catholic wedding in Nuestra Señora del Carmen Chapel on 5th Avenue and then they moved in the remote area of Blue Venado to have a Mayan ceremony. They combined the Pre-Hispanic with the Post-Hispanic, the vision of the world of the Ancient native American with the Catholicism.
The bride entered with Johann Pachelbel’s Canon in D major played on the harp and the couple was welcomed on the way out with bubbles.
Shaman don Eduardo performed the Mayan ceremony together with two pre-hispanic dancers who played the pax, the classic mayan drum, and the tunkul, a long horizontal wooden slit-gong.
The shaman plays the Mayan conch trumpet, which has three small holes which produce three consecutive notes.
The happy party came from Texas and Mexico and chose simplicity and elegance in the details, playing with the natural wooden colour and white.
And a small cake to respect the tradition – and why not?!
A dance on the beach and than late at night the party was on and on till 2 am!
