Stephanie & Sam's Magic Sayulita Wedding

Stephanie and Sam were the sweetest and most fun couple to work with. I first met Steph a few months before her wedding, and from the beginning she was awesome. She always has a smile on her face, and I love the way her face lights up every time she and Sam are with one and other. There’s no doubt these two were made for each other.

Steph’s simple and unique style was reflected perfectly on her wedding day . She wore a beautiful two piece gown which perfectly contoured her form. I loved the button detail going down one side of the gown leading into a leg spilt in the skirt. Her smoky eye makeup and natural glow looked amazing in combination with her dark hair in loose curls. The look was simple yet chic. She could not have looked more elegant.

Lauren and her team at Nicoella nailed it as always. The set up was amazing, and every single detail of the whole wedding week was executed flawlessly! As for the florals provided by Floweriize, I was in love! They were absolutely beautiful. Steph’s day went off without a hitch - this was no small feat for the various vendors involved - yet they made it happen and everyone had a memorable time. The mood was light and happy., and all eyes were on Steph and Sam as everyone made sure their day was a dream come true.

I’ve since had the opportunity to visit with Steph on a brief trip to Mexico City this past spring. It was so great to reconnect with her and see how well she was doing.

My team and I had an amazing time working with you Steph, thank you for those memorable moments! Wishing you and Sam all the best with your new home in DC!

Lindsay's Chic Sayulita Wedding

With each wedding comes the excitement to see each brides unique bridal style and decor choices. Every time you discover another breathtaking dress and more incredibly creative decor ideas. Every wedding is different, which never allows for a dull moment. Without a doubt, Lindsay’s wedding brought this to the next level.

Lindsay looked like she stepped straight off the pages of Italian Vogue on her wedding day. With her soft glam makeup look and her simple low bun garnished with a white floral detail, she looked absolutely stunning. Her elaborate lace dress was altered to her exact specifications and she had a custom bridal cape made to complement the look perfectly. I mean, a bridal cape-this is one of my new favorite bridal accessories and she pulled it off like a champ! She quite literally looked like an angel, total perfection. Even the kimono she wore during the preparations was gorgeous, with delicately embroidered flowers, and a simple white one piece bathing suit underneath. Every detail was admirable.

The wedding took place at Villa Del Oso, a beautiful venue right at the foot of the beach with a wonderful view. The wedding planner, Yazmin, from Sea of Dreams weddings, outdid herself with the setup. I have always been a big fan of her work but I was completely blown away when I saw the full setup. The ceremony and reception area were jaw droppingly gorgeous, with cozy seating areas, lush table setups, and beautiful lighting to set the mood once the sun went down. Small lights strung from palm tree to palm tree and each of the rustic wood tables decorated with lush white florals, the beautifully stenciled dancefloor, what a gorgeous and inviting place to celebrate with these two lovebirds. Every detail of this day was executed to absolute perfection!

The photographer, Tom, killed it with the photos! Every shot was absolutely stunning. Having to choose only a few to share seemed nearly impossible, with all of them being so perfect. While I always love working with him, I have to say this is one of my favorite weddings he has shot…bravo Tom! It’s always such a blast to work with such a talented team!

Lindsay’s wedding was above and beyond. Every aspect was exceptional. The ambiance was lively and welcoming, and her sweet personality made it really enjoyable to work with her and let’s not forget, she looked absolutely stunning!!!

Congratulations Lindsay, it was so lovely working with you! We wish you only the best!

Kate & Juan's Classic Estate Wedding

Every year Sayulita, and the whole Bahia de Banderas, stretching from South of Puerto Vallarta to Lo de Marcos becomes an ever more popular wedding destination. With more weddings comes a bigger demand for wedding photographers, planners, florist, etc. This has given our team the opportunity to work with so many fun and talented people. The community here in Sayulita and the surrounding areas has been incredible.

On Kate and Juan’s wedding this past March, we had the opportunity to work some more with wedding photographer, Bruno Rezza, which is always so much fun. His calm presence makes for a great working environment and needless to say his photos are always GORGEOUS! Being able to work with people like Bruno is always a plus. The importance of having a good dynamic with the team you’re working with is huge, we handle a lot of things behind the scenes to ensure your day goes smoothly and time, especially photography time, is used well throughout the day.

As always, it is more than a pleasure to work with the lovely, talented and super fun Vida Bonita Events! Fun fact, I have been her client for an event as well. Somer is fun, professional, creative and pretty much all around amazing!!

In this regard I always enjoy working with Flora Amor. Florals more often than not largely tie into the whole bridal look. Even just the color and style of the bride’s bouquet largely tie into the final bridal look. So being familiar and comfortable with the florist is crucial. When doing hair and makeup, anytime there is a floral headpiece, this is something we must be ready to work with. Carmen always delivers with florals that are completely on point, creative and stylish. Plus, she’s just pretty much a rad woman, and she’s from the same city as me originally.

Kate and Juan’s wedding took place at beautiful Hacienda Antigua. This rustic venue always makes for a gorgeous backdrop, especially combined with Flora Amor’s beautiful formal pieces. Kate’s classic bridal look was stunning. Her softly waved hair was pinned to one side with a lovely floral hair piece by Flor Amor and her make up was kept light and natural. Her elegant lace dress had a gorgeous trailing back and delicate beaded waist band. All in all a true classic beauty!

Seeing Kate share this special day with those close to her was priceless. Particularly touching were the moments spent with her mother, every girl dreams to have their mother by their side on their big day. I always like to take a bit of time with the Mom’s and I love those special moments that we are witness to. It goes without saying that Kate’s mother couldn’t be more proud of her beautiful daughter!

Congratulations Kate and Juan, it was a pleasure being able to work with you! We wish you all the best!!

Tiffany & Ben's Spring Wedding In Sayulita

This past year has been full of so many incredible weddings. Being based in such a popular location for destination weddings, every year the demand for professional hair and makeup services only seems to increase. Assisting my clients to the fullest, easing the stress of planning a wedding in a foreign country, and providing them with an exceptional experience has always been my top priority. To ensure that stays the same, a major goal I wanted to actualize this year was the expansion of my team. With the addition of a second team, future clients are looking forward to things such as budget friendlier pricing, more availability, etc. Well, the time has arrived. I am so excited to announce that the second bridal team has already begun working weddings and are absolutely killing it!

Justine was our lead bridal artist for Tiffany’s wedding. She did an incredible job getting Tiffany ready for her big day. She looked absolutely STUNNING with her bold red lips and her gorgeous loose braid! Great job Justine, I know that our clients will always be in good hands with you!

Tiffany’s bouquet was exceptional, with the red highlights which nicely accentuate her lips. It’s always exciting to have a bride who is eager to reflect their own personal style. Tiffany’s unique bridal look could not have been more perfect. Her elegant black lace dress  and choice of accessories was everything! It was a nice deviation from the norm seeing Tiffany with her dark dress and her groom in white. Such a stylish couple those two.

The venue, Villa Valentin, never disappoints. Such a beautiful Mexican styled villa with blue domed roofs and a view over looking the jungle and further off the ocean. The vegetation of cactus and vibrant flowers in bloom really made for a dreamy surroundings.

These two spent a day of total perfection. There isn’t much more beautiful than finding someone who always puts a smile on your face. From what I can tell, Tiffany, will spend a life filled with laughter.

Congratulations Tiffany and Ben, I, and everyone on my growing team wish you both all the best!
