A New Year, A New Life

16 05 2010

While Travelling in Puerto Rico this last New Years, I happened across a traditional wedding mass in the Catedral de San Juan.

This amazing cathedral is the second oldest in the Western Hemisphere, having been constructed in 1521. It’s located in Old San Juan, and spending the day there is definitely worth the price of the inexpensive plane tickets to get there.

The Christmas decorations were still up, and the mixture of the solemn majesty of the ceremony and the festive air of the holiday combined for one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever witnessed. The 500 or so witnesses apparently agreed with me, for when the couple was presented as husband and wife, the cathedral erupted in applause and tears.

What better way to start 2010!
