Fifty-two couples met on Bacocho Beach last Saturday for a mass wedding ceremony and party organized by the municipal government of San Pedro Mixtepec.
During the collective wedding event, the municipality gave couples the opportunity to legally formalize their union waiving the usual fees collected by the Civil Registry office.
Some of the requirements that the 52 brides and grooms had to meet before their big day included filling out a marriage form and presenting a pre-nuptial health certificate, two witnesses and a certificate of a clean criminal record.
The collective marriage ceremony was led by Civil Registry official Jesús Villavicencio Jarquín, after which the newlyweds were feted with a toast, wedding cake and live music, with the setting sun at Bacocho a stunning backdrop to the proceedings.
The event was also attended by San Pedro Mixtepec Mayor Javier Cruz Jiménez, honorary DIF president Irene Santiago Hernández, state DIF delegate Nubia Espino Carmona and members of the municipal council.
