Destination Wedding at Four Seasons Punta Mita

Everyone has a different aspect of their wedding with which they are particularly preoccupied. For some of us it’s the dress, the food, or the ceremony, and for some of us (raises hand) it’s the party. This is a HUGE day and I am a firm believer in an all-out celebration. Photographed by Jillian Mitchell, this Punta Mita bash is also totally gorgeous. You can see the whole pretty-packed fiesta right here in the gallery.

From the bride… Chris is super corporate America with a twist of hippie (since meeting me) and I’m totally a southern grown granola. Chris and I have always had a love hate relationship with Margaritas and Mexican food. Being from Texas, its our way of life – I don’t think there has been a week in our alomst 5 years together where we haven’t had Mexican food and Margaritas every Sunday – then come home for an afternoon siesta!

We didn’t want a big wedding at all – and we knew if we had a Houston wedding, it would have been a 500 person event. Chris and I are both SUPER laid back and easy going. We wanted our wedding to reflect our personalities and our favorite things: spending time with our friends and margaritas!

We chose Punta Mita – because we have friends who have houses there and we think its a beautiful, quaint little spot. We also didn’t want to ask our guests to fly more than 2 hours to our wedding destination. We wanted a resort that was killer, yet we wanted somewhere really fun for our guests to have a fun “vacation”. We didn’t want them to think they were traveling for a wedding. We wanted them to go on vacation – and happen to just go to a wedding during their trip!

We didn’t want to choose between our friends – so we decided we wouldn’t have a bridal/grooms party. We’ve both been in a ton of weddings and we agreed, its just too stressful and causes way too much drama. We agreed that our wedding was about two people: Chris and myself.

As far as vendors – I wanted to keep things super simple. Chris wore simple Bonobos blue pants (his favorite color) and a white linen shirt with his sleeves rolled up. I wanted him to feel comfortable, not stuffy. Shoes are always optional in our lives.. I absolutely hate wearing shoes. My dress, was Alvina Valenta purchased at Ivory Bridal Couture. I wanted a dress that was simple and reflected the beach – I didn’t want too poofy or fancy looking – because that’s not me. I didn’t wear shoes.

The food was simple: Mexican. The drinks were our favorite: Margaritas, Corona’s and Champagne with berries – we also had an open bar for our guests. We had tequila at each table – because why not? Our friends spent a ton of money coming to Mexico to party – we wanted to give them a party. I think we accomplished that!

Overall we had the best, most perfect wedding. People are STILL talking about it in Houston. It was wild, crazy, free spirited – just the way we wanted it.

From Travel & Events With Style… Sweet and sunny; lace and orchids; this is the simplicity that made this wedding by the beach lovely. Leanne and Ryan are on of the couples where love surrounds them at all times. Tight family units, silly infectious laughter, was the “sugar and spice” that made this wedding more than just “nice.”

Decor was inspired by beachy itself. When the overall vision was created, it was focused on traditional things such a lace to inspire the traditional aspect of family. While the white and beige mirrored the beach and the surroundings. Fun, silly, yet elegant. This couple made for wedding simple yet perfectly planned wedding in paradise.

Resort

This beautiful destination wedding took place at Dreams Villamagna in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Tony and Julia were the most stunning of couples and had impeccable taste in style, music, friends, and wedding locations! Tony being from Canada and Julia from New Zealand, guests were coming from all parts of the world.

Dreams Villamagna fit Tony & Julia’s destination wedding dream perfectly, providing beautiful landscaping, surrounded by palm trees and pools leading to the ocean. The resort was mostly white with orange and green accents, which gave many options for portrait scouting. And the beach was simply beautiful and perfect.

Dreams Villamagna provided the flowers and cake. Tony & Julia decided on everything else from the wedding colors to the centerpieces to the music played throughout the ceremony and reception.

This destination wedding was exquisite and with just the right amount of Mexican flare and touches to bring all the foreigners together, made this wedding a one of a kind.
