Lasso and Coins

In honor of All Saints Day I thought I'd share a wedding tradition that I recently had the opportunity to photograph. I had heard about the tradition of giving 13 coins during a wedding several years ago when I ate at the 13 Coins restaurant in Seattle, but I had not heard the story of the Lasso. When I was at Vanessa and Tory's wedding in October, this was a tradition they were using in their wedding. According to the information I received and researched, the lasso is a ritual in which the bride and groom face each other to declare their love. The coins are a way of saying that everything they have is going to be shared from now on between them. If you'd like to know more about the tradition, you can read about it here - https://clarionherald.org/2016/12/02/hispanic-wedding-traditions-el-lazo-lasso-and-las-arras-coins/.
