Did you just see a pig fly past your window? Because Dennis Drenner has actually gotten married! Karen and I had a fantastic event in her native Colombia last week, enveloped by the beauty of Cartagena and surrounded by many of our closest friends and family members.
In true Colombian live-in-the-moment fashion, things were slightly disorganized and more fun that we could have imagined. Rings were misplaced, readings were forgotten, and a piano broke five minutes before the ceremony. A beer vendor on the street sold out her entire inventory in seconds, and Miss Teen Colombia showed up at the reception and danced with some of the guests amidst a throng of carnaval dancers. Spanish speakers somehow spent entire days with English speakers and everyone had a great time. Salsa music flavored the proceedings like cilantro in the cazuela.
