Good morning and happy, happy Friday! Most of you are rallying up for a three day weekend which is ALWAYS nice so we figured we would get the party started with a sun-filled Mexican wedding courtesy of Jillian Mitchell. These Sayulita nuptials are filled with so many DIY projects, making for a completely original and customized event. We love it when couples take a destination wedding by the horns and infuse the day with their own personalities. Colorful, magical, gorgeous are just a few descriptive words that come to mind. Find more of this drool-inducing fiesta in the gallery.

There were a few things that my handsome husband and I were certain that we wanted for our wedding. We wanted a small, intimate gathering of our close friends and family. Our petite guest list of 19 people suited this requirement perfectly. We wanted to find the perfect location that had the right mix of sweetness and rustic charm. We found just that in the small, fishing village of Sayulita, Mexico. We wanted to find a photographer that would be able to understand us and share our vision for our big day. We were lucky enough to find that in the uber talented Jillian Mitchell. She was able to capture the magic of the day and put it into print. But most of all, we wanted our wedding to reflect us. We included lots of DIY projects and personal touches, making our wedding our very own. It was sweet, it was charming and it was perfect…for us.

The day amazing and it couldn’t have happened without all the hard work of our loving friends and family. Oh, and a kick-butt photographer doesn’t hurt either!
