Not only the blows and spits were the protagonists in the wedding of Chiquis Rivera and Lorenzo Méndez, there was also a lot of love and moments of nostalgia, because even though Chiquis entered the church trembling with fear after she was harassed by the press, Jenni Rivera's daughter was comforted by her grandmother. “[The reporters] ruined the car that Chiquis arrived in, they wanted to grab her, now she has to pay. Chiquis came in shaking with fear,”said Rosie Rivera. “My mom walked her to the altar and then her two brothers. My mom, who is a woman of faith, told her that she was going to pray for her, and it hurt our hearts that Chiquis entered the most beautiful day of her life like this.
Luckily, her grandmother's prayers reassured her and in an emotional ceremony Janney - Chiquis' legal name - became Lorenzo's wife. "Chiquis was concerned about having her mother present and her father-in-law [also] because Lorenzo's father also passed away and at all times during the ceremony they were worshiped," Rosie said. “The two parents who had died were worshiped, both wanted to feel the presence of their parents who have already died. Chiquis was worried about that, about how to honor her mother.”
With that eagerness, the couple decided not to sell exclusively to any media. "There were no cameras from any media, they were the cameras of a girlfriend who records the day for her files," said Chiquis's aunt. “Days before they had already told me, wear what you want, dress how you want because Chiquis did not sell the wedding, we will be with the family. There are a lot of people who love Chiquis and there are people who don't, and on your wedding day there are people who love you and people who are going to criticize you, she wanted to share it with the people who love her”.
It was until 11 at night that Lorenzo and Chiquis returned the cell phones to their guests so they could share the images they wanted. "[At that time] we could already have telephones Lorenzo told us that the wedding had not been sold and that the images were going to be released by them. The waltz, the brandies, everything was private”.
