No request is too big and no intricate detail is too small when it comes to the “Big Day.” But why do we get married the way we do? World Wide Wed explores the customs and traditions that define weddings around the globe — and shows how today’s multi-cultural couples are making their ceremonies uniquely their own.
In our third episode of World Wide Wed, we’re heading to Mexico’s San Miguel de Allende for the marriage of law school sweethearts, Sara and Keith. While the newlyweds are from cultures located on opposite sides of the world, they’re throwing an exuberant, color-splashed ceremony that blends her Mexican heritage to his Filipino roots. The common thread in their nuptials? Catholicism — and, above all, Sara and Keith’s investment in giving its age-old traditions a modern, intersectional update.
Press play above to catch every moment of Sara and Keith’s exquisitely modern marriage ceremony, which combines their heritages into one vibrantly cross-cultural extravaganza.
