Sayulita is such a pretty little spot for a destination wedding. The sun, the sand, the laid back atmosphere: it all makes for a dreamy beach escape and one perfect for saying “I Do” with all your favorite people in tow. Which is EXACTLY what this fun loving Bride and Groom did and from the looks of the fabulous images by Nate Broshot, this wedding/vacation was Destination done so, so right. See it all here!
From the Bride… Our story began at a triathlon in Rocky Point, Mexico. We met at the awards ceremony, where the man I would later marry was celebrating his team’s victory by parading around in Speedo goggles and a half-burned sombrero. I was instantly drawn to his fun-loving, adventurous spirit. Lucky for me, our chance meeting in Rocky Point was just the beginning of an amazing life together. Six years and 10 countries later (yes, his sense of adventure wore off on me), we were tying the knot in Sayulita, Mexico. Needless to say, we’d gotten to know each other pretty intimately over the course of several nail-biting excursions, and it was clear there was no other person I’d rather share all of life’s ups and downs with.
We’d visited Sayulita for the first time a year before. From the moment our feet hit the sand, we knew it was the perfect spot for our wedding. It was quaint, charming and vibrant with a cozy, modern feel. The ideal mix for the less-experienced travelers in our family. Everything fell into place from there, thanks to our incredible wedding planner, Yazmin of Sea of Dreams.
From the Groom… We knew that we wanted a small, intimate villa wedding. What we got was a week-long experience where our friends became family and everyone left with a collection of memorable stories and adventures. The day of the wedding was special for us. As the groom I had three responsibilities – be on time, look good, and hire the photographer. This trifecta aligned perfectly with Nate Broshot. Nate was awesome! His style complemented ours, and by the end of the day, he not only knew everyone’s name but also how we knew them. Nate made my job easy, which left me plenty of time to work the DIY element into our wedding. I first ventured down this path with our save-the-dates. Since we met at a triathlon, we focused on a bicycle theme and rode with it. The save-the-dates, invitations and guest bags all had a bicycle element. For the wedding I also created Papel Picado guest cards. Each card was hand cut, and then lovingly inked by each of our guests. Some drew pictures, others words of wisdom but all were truly unique. Some even tried to take them home… Blue is our favorite color, so from blue on the save-the-dates to cobalt blue Mexican glassware, the touch was everywhere. Our wedding planner had a knack for bringing together every last detail. On the whole, this stunning day in Sayulita turned out to be a perfect expression of our relationship.
