Guanajuato - The City We Love

We arrived a week before the wedding. We were able to hang out with our family and friends before the big wedding event.  We had about 200 people at our wedding, of whom 75 came from the US.

New Years Party

The night after wedding, it was NYE. We rented out Kevin's Uncle's bar, ordered a ton of tamales and partied until the wee hours. Kevin and I only stayed out until 1 am, since we were still sick.
