15 pots of mole sauce were made in preparation for this wedding in a small town in Mexico. The wedding and reception involved 2 small adjacent pueblitos and lasted almost 24 hours. Ultimately, over 800 people were fed a full dinner (cooked and served by family members), with an estimated 1,000 attending the dance afterwards. Family members came as far as the US (at great risk) to attend this special event.
Six months pregnant, the bride seemed exhausted but happy (in some rural areas, it is not uncommon for girls to become pregnant at 12 or 13 years of age). The groom beamed throughout.
