Mérida, Yucatán — A high-society wedding on Saturday briefly dominated the Centro while onlookers took photographs and asked each other, “who’s getting married?”

Nupitials between Eugenio Fernández Garza-Lagüera and Andrea Ayala Roche in the ancient Church of the Third Order on Calle 60 at 59, was quite a pageant. 

Guests pulled up in white limos and approached the church as if arriving on a red carpet. The women wore expensive-looking gowns and the men looked comfortable in untucked white guayaberas, traditional wedding attire in Yucatán.

Municipal police were called in to assure that all went well, reports Diario de Yucatán.

The groom is the son of entrepreneur José Antonio Fernández Carbajal, president of FEMSA, a $33.6 billion company which is Latin America’s biggest independent Coca-Cola bottler.

The bride, Andrea Ayala Roche, is the great-granddaughter of Roger Roche Martinez, one of the founders of the Yucatecan sea salt giant Grupo Roche, which carries 10 different lines of commercial salts and six assorted types of table salt.
