As a self-proclaimed foodie, I'm seriously wishing I had been invited to this intimate celebration by Marweddings in Punta Mita, Mexico. Guests were greeted with a welcome basket containing local sweets when arriving at the oceanfront home, and that was just the beginning. On the day of the wedding, decadent appetizers were passed around during cocktail hour followed by a four course dinner, a decked out dessert table, and a late night treat – tacos and churros! Elizabeth Lloyd Photography captured the delicious day, and you can see it right here.

From Marweddings... Taylor and Daniel knew from the beginning of the planning process that they wanted an elegant wedding at a beautiful oceanfront home in the privacy of Punta Mita. They loved Casa Majani instantly, and the planning started while visiting this Villa. Food, drinks, and entertainment were a must for the couple, and they offered the best available in the area.

Upon arrival, guests had a beautiful welcome bag including a bottle of tequila, blown glass tequila shot glasses, salty snacks, a variety of Mexican local sweets, and a comfortable beach blanket in their rooms to enjoy their vacation. The wedding itinerary included welcome drinks with a bonfire at St. Regis and a rehearsal dinner at a Kupuri private beach cub. Men played golf while women enjoyed the variety of treatments at the spa.

On the wedding day, a quintet of strings welcomed guests with traditional instrumental, romantic Latin music. Guests were greeted with aperol spritz and margaritas. A Spanish duet of guitars invited people to take their seats for the intimate oceanfront wedding ceremony. Daniel's tears and Taylor's laugh during the ceremony were the sweetest moments of the night.

Going into the reception, a tequila and mezcal sommelier entertained guests during cocktail hour while waiters passed marinated octopus carpaccio tostadas with arugula and suckling pig tacos with smoked tomatoes and pork rind sauce. At twilight, guest sat at beautifully decorated tables with silk runners, black calla lilies, and black tulips – an uncommon combination for Mexico. Daniel gave the most romantic and respectful thank you speech to Taylor while bursting into tears.

Soft Mexican music was played during the dinner courses. The Bride and Groom offered an exquisite four course Mexican gourmet dinner with wines from Valle de Guadalupe and some exclusive Magnun wine bottles they brought from their own collection. Some of the most selected tequila brands were offered throughout the night including Don Julio 1942, Clase Azul plata, and José Cuervo Reserva de la familia. A romantic first dance was followed by everyone joining on the dance floor, and the sweet dessert table offered a personal recipe from the bride and the traditional tres leches from Mexico. Later in the night, guests enjoyed tacos and churros... after unbuttoning their shirt collars.
