Molly & Tyler’s May 2016 Wedding at Teitiare Estates was so beautiful and fun to design. Molly, a Designer herself, had great ideas and a well-edited Pinterest board with a fun mix of modern geometric elements and earthy greens. Molly did all the typeface and print design herself, which we carried through to the various signage elements for the ceremony and reception. They wanted a great bash for their friends and family, complete with a top shelf Tequila, Scotch, and Cuban cigar tasting bar from Don Pedro’s, who also provided the main bar and the gourmet dinner al fresco beneath the palms, the luscious cupcake table for dessert. Mireya of Flor Mimo worked her usual magic with Molly’s vision and palette, tying everything together with lush and graphic greenery and clean crystal vases. Dylan Howell of Portland-based Dylan and Sara Photography captured the day’s events and lovely details, and Irene Guerediaga of Make-up Vallarta beautifully styled Molly’s hair and makeup. Enjoy the photos!
Wishing a very Happy 4th Anniversary to Meagan & Scott from the SF Bay Area! They had a beautiful wedding – love those vibrant pops of RED! – at the spectacular St. Regis. The Rehearsal Dinner was especially fun to design. Meagan wanted a vintage Mexico travel theme and brought down fabulous posters. We did the tables up super bright with maracas and hand-painted piggy banks from Esto Es Mexico in Sayulita, one of my favorite spots for Mexican pop-art. Their light-up dance floor was epic and really got the crowd moving. The weekend’s events were captured flawlessly by the talented Andrew Weeks Photography. Flowers by Flor Mimo, Bridal Party Styling by Remede Spa at the St. Regis, and Cocktail Hour Tunes by Los Frixoleros (how I miss them!). Enjoy!
This was my fourth year helping to organize and produce the Annual Scholarship Drive for Costa Verde International School, where my son Maximo Lobo attends first grade. Our theme was “Mexi-Gras” as our date coincided with Mardi Gras (finally!). This is always such an off-the-charts fun event, the first big fundraiser of the season for our little village, a time to bring everyone together in celebration of an amazing cause and to support the school that has really changed the makeup of our community from a town of retirees and young singles to a viable place to live and raise a family. I love being a part of this event as it’s near and dear to my heart, but also because I get to collaborate with an amazing group of (mostly usually) women to pull it off, and we have a lot of fun with the theme, throwing a kick-ass party on the beach for our town and our school. And it’s fun to do something a little wilder than the average wedding every now and then… I mean, those colors! I love the purple and gold! Don Pedro’s (our fave wedding partners and the most awesome supporters of every good cause in Sayulita!) GENEROUSLY provides the location, food, bar, and staff to make it all happen (along with yummy eats from Organic Select, Teitiare Estate, and desserts and a custom designed cake from Naef Cuisine), and my rentals providers Eventos Elegantes and Trendy kicked down some deep discounts on the furniture and linens to make it all come to life. Kike Salazar of Dos Veinte Designs created our stellar poster and then applied his design to the larger-than-life dance floor, as well as painting the fabulous street signs above. My amazing, dynamic and super-sexy Man Gabbi Villarrubia reprised his role as MC for the fourth year, rocking the mic and keeping the event running smooth, and our good friend Yogi Kirst stepped up as Auctioneer. Nick Challed (aka “DJ Nico”, also a CVIS parent) set the mood with sweet New Orleans Jazz followed by pumping dance beats that kept the crowd shaking into the night. Spencer Harris & Cherry Bombs clicked the night away to bring you these fab snaps of the fun. To top it all off we raised a record-breaking amount of funds this year including 5 “adopt-a-scholar” pledges for full year scholarships. Ha-ZA!
