Jessica Ortner Wedding FireworksAs many of you know, I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and moved to the U.S. when I was 7 years old (thus no accent when I speak!).

My younger brother Alex was 4 and baby sis Jess was just a year old.  We’ve lived here ever since, with the majority of our extended family still in Argentina.

I’ve been able to go back every 3-4 years to visit, but Jess has made a much better effort and gone back almost every year, especially the last decade or so.  I think this was largely because a part of her knew one day she would marry… a fellow Argentine!  So she knew she had to find him and keep her Spanish up to speed!  LOL! (Though they found each other in California… oh, it’s all a long story for another day!)

Because Jess married an Argentine, and has been to a few weddings in Argentina herself, several Argentine traditions were central to Jess’ wedding reception.  I think they are simply wonderful, and you might want to know about them.  I’m sharing them with everyone I know who has a wedding coming up, because they are so so great!

The key ingredient to the whole wedding being spectacular was the joy and love that Lucas and Jess emanate.  You have to get that right FIRST.  But after that, here are some fun things to try:

1. The Waltz

The Waltz is an Argentine tradition where the bride and groom get to dance with (almost!) everyone at the party.  Traditionally, the bride and groom begin to dance together to a waltz, then the parents cut in, then the uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters, cousins, and friends.  Once you finish dancing with the groom or bride, you stay on the dance floor and dance with your partner.  It builds beautifully, and there’s something so special about “cutting in” and asking to dance with the bride (for men).  I know I found it to be a special moment when I cut in and danced with my beautiful sister.

2. The Cotillion

Near the end of the night, a bag is placed on the table filled with masks, funny hats, necklaces, and silly things that light up.  This is called “cotillion”.  Just think of it as a little bit of Mardi Gras at the end of the wedding.  It was an absolute riot and brought a new surge of energy, dancing, and laughter to the wedding.

3. The Group Picture

At the end of the wedding, when everyone is dressed up and having a blast, they all pile in for a group photo.  As you can imagine, it leads to quite a memorable pic!  Simple but fun!

    Thanks much for sharing a beautiful and loving time with all of us. Jessica looked beautiful and everyone looked so happy to celebrate this beautiful union.

    The flower girls were precious as well.

    A tradition celebrating vows with those you treasure is a wonderful tradition. Wanting to share that you are committed to each other and want to share you life journey with a special person. What better gift is there? Share the joy and love with all you connect with. May the new couple attract many joyous times together and pass it on to others as well. Wishing you both a happy life and a wonderful adventures time along your journey.

    What a neat place to have a wedding, and little kids always remind us of the innocence and joy we all have available to us. Wishing the newlyweds all the success, happiness and aliveness they can contain. i imagine Lucas knows how to tap by now, but if he doesn’t…lol It has been so neat to follow Jess on this journey to the altar. Hearing her talk about it on Twitter has been really cool, and so happy that the time finally came to start your lives together. You are the voice of the tapping world summit, and as a blind woman, I can’t see these pictures so I can imagine, knowing what your voice sounds like, how radically happy you must have sounded when saying your vows. I hope you and your husband share the best of everything life has to offer! <3

    Congratulations to Lucas and Jessica and to both families. A Jewish expression is …Mazol Tov and Much Nachus in the life you are beginning to build and share together. 🌹🎉💕
