From the Bride...Funny enough, we had never been to Sayulita before we decided to have our wedding there.  But as we stood on the top of a beachside cliff with your best friends and families and the tropical ocean below, we realized that we could not have found a more perfect place in which to get married.  Plenty of details await the attention of the bride and groom ( and their mothers) planning a destination wedding from afar - from scouting out musicians on YouTube to finding the right combination of local and imported wedding flowers for the bouquets. Fortunately, with the help of our fantastic wedding coordinator, everything came together perfectly on top of that cliff.

Our vision was beach chic, balancing modern elegance with organic elements from the beach.  A pop of vibrant color in the centerpieces brought the warmth of Mexico into this otherwise restful scene.  We chose coral as our primary color and used sand, green, and white to create a more natural feel.  Our table settings were in keeping with our theme of clean lines rectangular tables, square plates and simple flower arrangements (two types of brightly colored flowers submerged in water).  We used sand-colored table runners against white table cloths, and gauzy  white panels to create a breezy style that would fit in with the stunning background.  Candles and luminaries were employed to create a more intimate feel.

For DIY projects, we created welcome bags from Mexican market bags (that could double as beach bags) and filled them with treats from Mexico and beach necessities.  A cute map of the town, with our event venues highlighted, was creatively displayed.  But we have our guests to thank for our best DIY project, our guestbook, which showed off their festive spirits on Polaroids.
