If you are on the hunt for some fun and vibrant fiesta inspiration then look no further! In The Now Weddings created a classic Mexican event with to-die-for vintage details. Traditional and old world decor mixed with bold and playful elements are just perfect for a couple that wants to celebrate their heritage but throw in a few personalized surprises! The super-talented Becky Hill Photography captured every last stunning detail so get to the full gallery to see it all!
We wanted to bring to life the warmth and family-feel of a classic Mexican event. Even giving a nod to the Catholic traditions celebrated in Mexico.
A brief walk through of the event leads you from a “wisdom donation” guest book- where friends and family were encouraged to donate their experiences and enhance the bride and groom’s lives, sealed properly with a wax seal. The lush grounds of the Casino made the perfect backdrop for this festive event. We took bold, lively colors and mixed them with subtle muted tones to give a modern edge.Our “watering hole” held 3 colorful options for guests- alcoholic and non- to drink in the fun! The sweets station was an over-the-top idea mixing crowd pleasing flavors such as churros to modern plating like our sorbet served in ice shot glasses!
But the main event was the s’mores roasting station- a custom [mini!!] s’mores set up featuring and celebrating all that Mexican sweets have to offer. We made recipes for the guests to create-their-own custom treat. Favorite flavors like “Mexican wedding cookie” and “death by chocolate” are sure to make guests smile from ear to ear [and I have since sold TWO clients for later this year on this very idea!!].
Our sweetheart table kept it simple with lush garden-style florals in an array of oranges and yellows, adding in pops of that hot purple we can’t get enough of. We topped off the details with peach champagne to give that golden luster and tie it all together!
