What do donkeys, mariachi bands, and tequila necklaces have in common? They’re all part of a traditional Mexican wedding parade of course! Well, not necessarily of course because I had no clue about this until I was commissioned to do this wedding illustration.
The couple, who live in San Miguel, Mexico, had just that, a traditional Mexican wedding. They paraded through the streets accompanied by their loved ones and all the appropriate festive paraphernalia.
Also, typically seen during the procession (that wasn’t captured here) are giant wedding puppets. A quick google image search of “Mexican wedding parade” and you’ll see what I mean when I say giant.
This was definitely one of the most unique wedding illustrations I’ve done and one of the most fun! I just love all the color! Plus, her outfit! Amor!
