Happy 1-year Anniversary to Heather and Noelle of Bellingham, Washington! Heather and Noelle had a beautiful, spiritual, intimate wedding at the lovely Casa Vela. The wedding ceremony, officiated by their Pastor from Bellingham, was held on the north end beach, and guests were shuttled up to the house afterwards for cocktails, dinner, and dancing.
All week it threatened to rain, so we opted for a tent to cover the ceremony, and held our breath that the garden dinner setting didn’t get rained out. In the end the rain held out, and we were treated to a magnificent sunset at the end of what was a nail-bitingly cloudy (but mercifully dry) day.
The casual gourmet dinner was a feast of local Sayulita culinary delights, many from our Mercado del Pueblo, starting with Adriana’s gourmet tamales of spinach/pine nut and portobello/red pepper, followed by the always delectable steak, fish, and veggie tacos of Tacos on the Street. Dessert was gold-flecked chocolate cupcakes from Sandrita, and for favors, guests were treated to take-away bags (though many were gnoshed on the spot) of Debbie’s hand-made chocolate chili truffles. Yum.
