Molly + Tyler’s Modern Geometric Wedding

molly-tyler-wedding-may-19-2016-1-of-5

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!

¡Feliz Aniversario Meagan + Scott!

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!

Elizabeth + Matt’s Brisa Mar Palapa Wedding | November 2014

Liz + Matt Donna Day Photos - 35

 Elizabeth and Matt were absolutely the sweetest.  They were actually – like for reals – high school sweethearts.  Like, pictures-of-them-at-their-senior-prom-on-the-photo-wall SweetHearts.  And so truly madly in love.  So cool.  Their celebration was held at Sayulita’s Brisa Mar Palapa on a perfect sunny November day.  Their intimate group of 55 was seated at a massive rustic wood feasting table set with clusters of beautiful but un-fussy flowers designed by Flor Mimo to evoke the feel of a farm table with blooms gathered from the backyard garden.  Guests were greeted with aguas frescas, cool towels, and vintage family photos as they entered the Palapa.  Donna Day Photography captured the love all day and the fun all night in the festive photo booth.  Bridal Styling by Marjie Cheales of Funky Diva Collective.  DJ Paladub filled the night with fresh beats to pack the dance floor, Don Pedro’s filled happy mouths and bellies with always-excellent food and drink to satisfy even the most discerning Bay Area Foodie palates.  Hand-rolled cigars, fresh-made churros, and hot-off-the-spit tacos al pastor rounded out the night, along with a surprise fireworks show from a neighboring wedding that our Bride, Groom and Guests all got to enjoy.  Many Congrats and Mucho Amor to Liz + Matt!!

Ed + Jessica’s Hacienda Wedding at Casa de los Delfines

7634415224_5820e5a325_k

Seriously – those shoes, right?  Showstoppers.  It’s taken me a while to get this one up on the blog, but I think it’s worth the wait.  Casa de los Delfines was the perfect canvas of a venue for Ed & Jessica’s intimate wedding with an elegant hacienda design concept.  Mariachis set the mood under oversized tin stars which twinkled over the dance floor later in the evening.  Naef Cuisine catered the reception dinner & bar and crafted the Papel-Picado design wedding cake.  Flor Mimo set the tablescapes with endless amounts of bottles for an abundant and intimate feel.  We set up a long feasting table (my favorite setup for this venue) and had custom parota wood runners made to bring in a natural element to the tables.  Jessica ordered vintage Mexican postcards on etsy for their guests to write well wishes, which were then dropped into the vintage mail box to be posted from Sayulita back to their home in Chicago.  Love and details expertly captured by Puerto Vallarta’s own Paulina Ulloa Photography.7680049656_be701962f4_k 7635270166_5e3715a95f_k 7659625028_ff2153b73a_k
