This is the outside courtyard at Hotel Misión Juriquilla in Querétaro. Many Catholics get married at this historical hacienda.
Velia looks out onto the courtyard before her guests arrive. She waits in her wedding dress, while she prepares for the ceremony.
The priest stands before us and blesses the wedding party before the wedding begins. He holds a small Jesus statue filled with holy water, as he speaks to us.
Velia holds her father’s arm before they walk down the aisle.
Velia and Miguel sit in front of the priest before he starts mass. Before the wedding, a Catholic service in Spanish begins.
Friends and family fill the chairs at the wedding. They sit quietly listening to the priest.

Velia and Miguel stare, lovingly into each others eyes as they end their first dance as a married couple.
