Wedding of the Year

Mexican society is buzzing with news about the wedding of the year between Maria Elena Torruco and Carlos Slim Domit, son of the richest man in the world. The happy couple celebrated their wedding in Mexico City on Saturday, October 9 at San Agustin Church with over 1,500 guests.

Maria Elena and Carlos have known each other for about 10 years after meeting in Acapulco and look radiant in this picture, don't you think? The bride's gown is from Oscar de la Renta and has a 30 foot train.

My beautiful friend Sylvianne shared news about the wedding via facebook. Whatever did we do before facebook???

The dessert buffet by Paulina Abascal had over 100 different varieties!

What a wedding! I'll be in Mexico in less than a month to attend my friend Maria's wedding and am counting the days! So exciting.

Have a fantastic day.

Oh, and if you're ever in Mexico City, I highly recommend a visit to the San Agustin Church. You can pray to San Charbel, a Lebanese saint. Buy a ribbon from the woman outside to write your prayer on, and tie it around his statue. Once the wish comes true, go back to the statue and tie a white ribbon in its place to show thanks. I have made many petitions there and many have come true! After that, enjoy the delicious restaurants and fantastic shopping in the fashionable Polanco neighborhood.


  1. WOW! 1500 guests! That dessert buffet is unbelievable.

  2. Worth it for the dessert buffet!

  3. I bet we could've snuck in un-noticed even just to peek at the desserts!

  4. Holly Molley!! That's all I'm saying... Please take lots of pics at the wedding you attend!! We'd love to see ;)
