ZARA AND DAVID'S WEDDING
Stratford Baptist Church, Stratford, Connecticut
Oronque Country Club, Stratford, Connecticut
David and Zara's Wedding Ceremony was a one of a kind featuring 3 officiants presiding over the ceremony as well as a Reiki blessing with Reiki Stone, blessing of the rings, a sand ceremony, unity candle and drinking of the wine and eating of the bread. Their ceremony was held at the Stratford Baptist Church in Stratford, Connecticut. Zara came from Venezuela so there was a melding of cultures and families. It was a beautiful and touching ceremony.
Their wedding moved to the Oronoque Country Club in Stratford for a most unique wedding reception including 3 "first dance songs" toasts and a Venezulean "Hora Loco" or crazy hour with photos to follow.
The Hora Loca or "Crazy Hour" is a 1 hour part of the Wedding Reception that is becoming very popular in the wedding scene in the United States and in Latin America. Its roots come from Spain and have grown in Latin America and such countries as Venezuela. It resembles Brazil's Carnival where wedding guests dress up in colorful masks, hats, head dresses and costumes and dance to Latin music with costumes, whistles, noisemakers, conga lines etc. for one hour of the wedding reception. The tradition is meant to bring both sides of the wedding families together and encourage fun, sharing, friendship and joy.
