Destination Wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Right about now, as my house lies snuggled in a foot of snow, Mexico is sounding pretty amazing. It’s a land where sunshine is a mainstay and seaside nuptials are a part of the landscape. And local darlings, The Dazzling Details, know just how to whip those nuptials into shape. The result is a neutral palette and oceanfront cocktailing all captured by Clary Pfeiffer.

From the Bride… Brad and I knew very early on we wanted a destination wedding. We both fell in love with Puerto Vallarta and knew it was the perfect location for our wedding. Puerto Vallarta is a city filled with remnants of classic architecture, cobblestone streets and breathtaking views from the hills that surround the bay. It is absolutely beautiful and completely charming.

I wanted to juxtapose the rustic charm of Puerto Vallarta and our venue, Villa Celeste, with chic, simple details and a soft color palette. Brad had only one request when planning the wedding: a ridiculously fun reception. We hired The Dazzling Details {wedding planners extraordinaire!} to bring our vision to life.

When the day arrived, I felt so relaxed and happy and I attribute this to The Dazzling Details. I knew they would take care of everything and all we had to do was have fun and live in the moment.

Our wedding day was steaming hot, but our guests made the best of it jumping in the pool between limbo contests, dance offs and visits to the late night churro stand and taco cart. Everyone ended up in bathing suits and cover ups by the end of the night, which wasn’t what I had envisioned, but it was a perfect ending to our crazy reception!

Engagement at Floras Farm in San Jose Del Cabo from Ana & Jerome

Engagement sessions are wonderful in their own right, but engagement sessions in Los Cabos? Well that takes them to whole new level of magical. Between the light, the gorgeous couple, and the stunning scenery – these images from Ana & Jerome are downright dreamy. See them all here.


This engagement session was shot January 3, 2013 at Floras Farm in San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico. It was Brianna & Cory’s first trip to Los Cabos to meet vendors and scout locations for their upcoming wedding on January 3, 2014 at Sunset Da Mona Lisa. We (Ana & Jerome) had the idea to shoot at this unique location and were totally happy with the result!

Oaxaca, Mexico Wedding from Orange Turtle Photography

When you work at SMP, there’s never a dull moment. Exhibit A: this crazy gorgeous Mexico wedding that’s layers upon layers of wedding fantasy brought to life. With two stunning gowns that’ll Rock. Your. World. plus all the pretty snapped up by Orange Turtle Photography, this day is officially one to love. Ready, set…swoon!

From Orange Turtle PhotographyThe wedding took place at the historical downtown of Oaxaca, Mexico. The bride, Stefie, grew up in Oaxaca and met the love of her life in Colorado. For their wedding, Stefie decided to get married in her gorgeous hometown. Their wedding took place at the historical church Santo Domingo de Juzman. The church is decorated with elaborate golden architectural details which would literally took your breath away. Immediately after the wedding, they were greeted by the traditional Oaxacan wedding parade completed with two huge puppets, fireworks and dancers! It was amazing!

They hosted their rehearsal dinner at the restaurant just across the street from the church on the rooftop. The lights from the street, the clear night sky and the historical surrounding make it pure magic. I’ve included a few images from their rehearsal dinner.

The wedding reception took place at a private estate (well, backyard!) that belongs to her aunt and uncle. It has a lush tropical garden where they set up a huge tent that seated over 400 guests. It was absolutely amazing! The guests partied until 3am in the morning, where a mariachi band escorted the exit of bridal party!!

The day after the wedding, we did a mini day-after session outside of another historic church of Cuilapan de Guerrero, which from far away, looks like a castle!
