Latino Weddings That Went A Little Too Far In All Of The Right Ways

Latino weddings are lo mejor. We all grew up on telenovelas where the bride is whisked away on a white horse, and fountains erupt behind her, only to find out that she just unwittingly married her fiance’s evil twin brother. There’s always extravagance and there’s always a moment of aghast that creates enough chisme for two more generations to come. In real life, though, we have the same high expectations for the extraordinary romance and grandiosity of gesture of a novela without any of the drama. Life goals are to forever be the chismosa and never the chisme.

These Latino weddings are hard, cold proof that novelas have always been right. You can’t have over-the-top good energies without some over-the-top malo. We’re sorry, newlyweds. You’re the chisme, this time.

They seem majestic as heck, but we imagine riding a horse actually required the whole cabellero get up for a reason. Riding a horse in a dress sounds like a challenge. Riding a horse in your wedding dress on your wedding day sounds like a receta for disaster.

After three minutes of absolute perfection, including a smoke bomb going off in the middle of their chicken dance, the groom decides to go for it. He lifts his wife up and she throws her arm up in the air. The victory! The adrenaline! Wait for it, because it all wears off.

The groom staggers and falls on top of his new wife.

We have to give him some credit though. He never let go of her. He just went down with her. That’s what marriage is all about, right?

And we all know every Latino wedding needs to stash the kids somewhere…

“Only at Mexican weddings..” tweets a guest. The banquet hall has a whole bouncy house in the banquet hall. 

I’m ready to see the professional photography of this wedding. 

We can be sure that was hands down the most fun wedding any niño or niña ever went to. 

It’s not what it seems.

Sure, it seems like this is what wedding photographers do. They don’t use their zoom. They walk backward, just a foot away from the bride and groom, and snap a bunch of flash photography in their faces. That’s not even the over-the-top part…

Literally, the most romantic moment of all is ruined in a single splash. The photographer is walking backward, snapping photos, as the newlyweds start walking back down the aisle for the first time as a married couple. Then, he got his second baptism after falling into a pool of holy water. We hope they didn’t lose all their photos!

Meanwhile, this couple knows the exit is at least as important as the entrance to a wedding.

Nope. They will not begin their marriage with a bunch of dusty old tin cans making a bunch of noise as they drive off into the sunset. This couple just hopped on a beautiful trajinera, and just had to keep grinning until they floated out of sight and could finally relax. That’s the way to end a wedding and start a marriage, in the best way.

This bride had her groom dress up as a charro, and we’re not mad about it.

Instead of preserving the same old classic tux for all of eternity in a garbage bag in the closet, that outfit will bring back unique memories. Just imagine passing that suit down to their son, who will continue a very epic tradition.

Here’s the thing. Somos Latinos. We always go a little too far. Tradition might be important to maintain our culture and family values, but we get to evolve and make our mark on that tradition. To the brides and grooms-to-be, please, go crazy with your weddings. Celebrate love, even if it means you might fall off a horse, or, worse, fall on top of your bride. It’s the thought and energy behind it all that counts. Plus, if something goes a little wrong, it’s not always bad to be the chisme. Felicidades.

Update September 24, 2020

In July, Max Ehrich and Demi Lovato pronounced their love to the world. The two got engaged in Malibu and the fans were loving the cute couple. However, just weeks after getting engaged, the couple has allegedly split.

People Magazine is reporting that Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich are no longer engaged.

According to People, the couple has been on the edge of ending their relationship and finally called it quits. The couple had been engaged since July but started dating in March, just in time to be quarantined because of Covid. In an interview on “The Morning Mash Up” on SiriusXM Hits 1, Lovato admits that the quarantine sped up their relationship. This naturally led to the couple getting engaged in a matter of months together.

“It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers,” a source allegedly told People Magazine. “They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together.”

Original: Demi Lovato has had a very wild ride in recent years. The singer hit rock bottom and overdosed on drugs after years of sobriety. After all of the wild ups and downs in her life, Lovato is sharing some news that we are all celebrating, her engagement.

Demi Lovato is engaged and it is so sweet.

After four months of dating, Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich are officially engaged. The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer shared the news on social media and fans are pumped. During these crazy times, any good news is so welcome by anyone.

Friends, family, and fans are pouring congratulations on the newly engaged couple.

Love is a beautiful thing. Seeing two people share that love without pretense is something to be celebrated. Lovato gushed over her new fiancé and celebrated this new chapter in her life.

@maxehrich – I knew I loved you the moment I met you. It was something I can’t describe to anyone who hasn’t experienced it firsthand but luckily you did too,” Lovato wrote in her IG caption. “I’ve never felt so unconditionally loved by someone in my life (other than my parents) flaws and all. You never pressure me to be anything other than myself. And you make me want to be the best version of myself. I’m honored to accept your hand in marriage. I love you more than a caption could express but I’m ecstatic to start a family and life with you. I love you forever my baby. My partner. Here’s to our future!!!! 😩😭❤️😍”

Ehrich shared his own tribute to their new engagement.

I cannot spend another second of my time here on Earth without the miracle of having you as my wife. here’s to forever baby 💍 ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh jeuejfjqjweuvu I’m so excited 😭😭😭 you are the most beautiful inside and out in the entire world & I couldn’t be more grateful God brought us together ❤️ 🙃💍💍💍😭I LOVE YOU SO MUCH @ddlovato AND WILL FOREVER CHERISH YOUR PURE, BEAUTIFUL, INFINITE SOUL.”

Now we wait for their wedding. Maybe she’ll pull inspiration from her “Tell Me You Love Me” music video.

All Of The Most Inspired Wedding Photos Of 2019 That Might Help Inspire Your Quarantine Wedding

All Of The Most Inspired Wedding Photos Of 2019 That Might Help Inspire Your Quarantine Wedding

Lee Vazquez / Instagram

Updated by editor May 21, 2020.

Every two months the Fearless Awards recognize the best wedding photos in the world. The winning images are selected by a panel of expert curators from Fearless Photographers, a digital platform that connects couples with wedding photographers.

Last year we looked forward to the weddings that took place from the month of July to December and were carefully selected for the awards. Sadly, this year we’re certain the wedding photos will be quite a bit different. As the current coronavirus pandemic forces wedding cancellations couples and weddings vendors stand to lose quite a bit. The pandemic hit at the worst time for many: wedding season leaving brides and grooms scrambling to make new arrangements and ways to mark their big day.

If you’ve decided to not let the pandemic rain on your parade and instead, go forward with a wedding like many have opted to do. Take a look at these wedding photos from 2019 that topped the Fearless Awards.

Lucha Libre Style

Kathruyn Krueger

Nothing like including the things you love on such a special day. This groom made sure that his love of Lucha Libre was known, and gave all of the members of his entourage, their own Luchador mask. Gotta love the originality.

A Mariachi Wedding

Gera Gallardo

Here’s a clear example of how a traditional wedding does not have to be conventional. This couple stuck to their roots and decided to give the event a very Mexican dress code with these Mariachi outfits —brb, just gonna look for a groom real quick so I can dress him up as a charro.

An emotional moment

Alberto Parejo

There can’t be a wedding without tears —of joy that is. This photo is so heartwarming it has tears welling up in my eyes.

Making the most of a destination wedding

Alex Beckett

I mean, if you have a place like Santorini as the backdrop for your wedding, no picture can really be a bad one. But tAlex Beckett, the photographer of this gem, used a beautiful play of light and shadow to create the magnified-effect of the married couple against a classic Greek house; dreamy.

Another epic destination wedding shot

Ana Maria Dumbrava

Again, if the wedding is being held at an amazing geographical location, the pictures are just going to be pure gold. This one here, with the happy couple, playfully sliding down the dunes is absolute goals —but also, there’s got to be a lot of sand in those clothes.

Confetti Madness

Joe Scrivens

Everything about this photo gives us chills. The energy, the colors, the vibrancy; it’s like we can feel the love through our screen. Can you?

An unconventional couple

Fiona Walsh

Some people have dessert tables at their weddings, others have board games, some offer boat rides or wild cocktails. Not this couple, they had a whole fair ride at their wedding. And the shot of them both riding at full speed is really a beauty.

A chill wedding by the lake

Juan Carballo Castro

More often than not, brides have the fame of being crazy, controlling, perfectionist maniacs. Not this one. Her entourage had already removed their gowns and jumped into the lake. We can only suspect that she’s about to do the same —and the mood of peace and fun that this photo is transmitting, really is making us question our fictitious wedding plans.

Female love

jake hannah

Ok so I’m crying now. Have you ever seen a photo that captures the essence of female love, companionship, empowerment and sorority more beautifully than this one by Jake Hannah? Okay, maybe you have, but this one is truly moving.

Otherworldly wedding vibes

David Hofman

This photo was actually taken in Brazil, but because of the visual effect, you could swear it was somewhere icy like Iceland or Canada. The couple seem to be walking on water, bathed in sunlight, and if that’t not an ideal metaphor for a happy marriage, then we don’t know what is.

Daddy’s Girl

Lucas Bezila

Crying again. Few things beat a deep father-daughter moment. Crazy to think that this man was about to give this woman, who once was his very own little girl, away. I’m weeping.

Post-wedding swim

Lanny Mann

Another laid back couple. Look at all that joy. A beautiful sunset, a happy moment, all smiles and warmth —we can almost feel the tropical weather just looking at it.

A mother’s love

Casian Podar

This is the visual definition of ‘tears of joy’. This abuelita holds on to her little girl; happily squeezing her, excited because finally, on this nieta’s case, she’ll never have to ask “¿Y el novio?” again.

Celebrate your culture

Jacki Bruniquel

We loved to see other cultures represented in the list of top wedding photos of the year. Not all brides wear white, some wear every color in the rainbow and this bright photo is really lighting up our day.

The couple’s best friend

Marius Dragan

Doggo parents will understand. One cannot simply get married and leave their best friend behind —and this good boy is clearly not ready to let go.
