The wedding took place on January 25 in the heartland of Mexico’s powerful Sinaloa Cartel.

Photographs and videos, including performances of a popular Mexican band and singers, fireworks, and yellow tape around the cathedral, were shared on social media.

PM News reported that the wedding took place at the Roman Catholic Diocese of Culiacan.

Culiacan citizens living and working near the cathedral told Reuters on Saturday that they had noticed an extravagant wedding though they had been unaware of who the couple was.

“The church is for everyone,” Sofia, who declined to give her surname, said. “But the church shouldn’t give privileges to anyone.” Others agreed. “With money, you can close any building here,” Francisca added. “It’s unfair.”

Blanca Margarita Cazares was sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury in 2007 for her “sophisticated money laundering apparatus” and links to Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada Garcia and Victor Emilio Cazares of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The Sinaloa Cartel has kept a firm grip on the drug trade even as “El Chapo” is serving a life sentence in prison in the United States; business has been proceeding unabated under the leadership of his sons and their associates.
