A carnival atmosphere had been created and between batucada, fire show, and papel picado the couple began the journey of a weekend celebrating their love. In this blog, we relive the joy of the Merida Welcome Party of Nicole & Charles.
The first celebration
In a house located in the Santiago neighborhood downtown of this white city of Merida, Nicole & Charles organized a welcome party for their guests.
Both had chosen to offer a Yucatecan dinner along with a mix of cocktails and drinks as a thank-you hug upon arrival.
Relatives and friends of the couple gathered for what would be the preview of the wedding the next day.
Fulfilling the purpose of any «welcome party», the guests shared moments and tasted delicious appetizers from the region.
Between hugs of congratulations and much joy, N + C enjoyed a night next to those who would be the most important people in the union of their lives.
Just like the films of yesteryear, the couple’s love story was projected on a wall of the historic building.
Between celebration and good music
To entertain the guests, a group of street artists surprised them with a show in monocycle and fire.
At the same time, a batucada began to sound, and three dancers created a fun atmosphere. A carnival-style party made this welcome party a special night. We experienced a mix of rhythms and dances that made everyone vibrate.
After the show, a music band was in charge of harmonizing the moment.
