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!
Blair & Jason got married 1 year to the date of their engagement, which also happened in Sayulita. They are a firefighter (he) and Massage Therapist (she) from Port Ludlow, WA, who brought 40 of their close friends and family to celebrate their union in the beautiful and picturesque Casa Vela. Their guests all packed down school supplies to donate to the local elementary schools at the request of Jason & Blair – such a great help to our local students!! Their ceremony was on the north end beach followed by cocktails, dinner and dancing at Casa Vela. Latcho y Andrea – The Blond Gypsies – set the mood for cocktails and dinner, with DJ Roberto Veckman rocking the dance floor later on. Plush Catering & Events kept everyone happy with amazing food and drink, Flor Mimo provided the beautiful flowers, and Marjie of Funky Diva styled the beautiful Bride. All of the fabulous details are loving captured by the stellar Joann Arruda, who we were fortunate enough to work with 3 times this year.

Happy First Anniversary to Patti & Chris! This super sweet couple from Chicago had a beautiful and intimate wedding at Casa Ilusion on Sayulita’s north end beach. I love looking back at these photos – they are dripping with love and affection between the happy couple. Adding to the glow of the lovely Bride, and the depth of those looks between new husband and wife, is the fact that they were expecting their first child at the time of the wedding. I can just feel it in these photos, the excitement and love around a new family forming, knowing that their baby would be born in August – and with their baby in their arms today, they have even more to celebrate this anniversary.
The wedding was a family affair, with Patti’s Uncle Bud acting as the wedding Officiate, and friends of the family providing the pre-ceremony piano and song, as well as the beautiful calligraphy on the guest book and the hand-lettered apple place cards. Patti & Chris wanted a delicious and authentic Mexican dinner from their favorite Sayulita restaurant, Sayulita Café. Miguel and his team served up their signature chiles rellenos along with chicken mole, cactus salad, and yummy guacamole. Tamale Diva Adriana Basail prepared mini-versions of her scrumptious gourmet mayan pork and spinach pine nut tamales for cocktail hour canapés. Dessert was assorted cakes from Anna, the Sayulita “Cake Lady.” The flowers were beautifully done by Mireya of Flor Mimo, with hair & makeup by Karina of Raphaella Salon.
Patti wanted to host a special luncheon for her girlfriends and Bridesmaids the day before the wedding, so we organized a spa party where guests each chose three services from stations offering massage, facials, and mani-pedis. Sayulita Sushi catered the luncheon with a delicious array of sushi, and ladies sipped on sparkling wine while getting pampered and checking out the ocean view.
Elizabeth Lloyd Photography did an amazing job capturing the beauty of the wedding and the pure love flowing between Patti & Chris and their baby on the way.
