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!

Kelly and Tam's Seaside wedding in Sayulita

Kelly and Tam were  married in March of 2017, but I loved their wedding so much and this post has been waiting for the right time to post, so I apologize for the delay but this was too pretty not to share!

Kelly and I met approximately a year before her wedding on a scouting trip she and her fiance Tam took to Sayulita. This was the perfect opportunity to get to know one another a bit and go over what her vision was for her wedding. Approximately half of my brides take a trip to Sayulita months prior to the wedding to scout locations and have vendor meetings, which is a great opportunity to take a bit of time to do a mini-trial, which is hair and makeup styling, and a consultation regarding your overall vision for the wedding and general ideas for your overall look in the early planning stages, with the actual trial done in the week of the wedding. While it isn't mandatory, and is only recommended if budget allows, it's a great way to get to know one another so you feel comfortable expressing questions or changes/updates in the months leading up to the wedding. Plus, it's a great chance to get all dolled up and go on a Sayulita date with your husband to be!

On the day of her welcome party, we did her trial hair and makeup, then, once it was finished, I took it down to ensure we kept her bridal look under wraps, and gave her some loose waves with a pop of color on her lip to ensure she was picture perfect for their portrait session with Taryn Baxter, and through the rest of the night. I loved the festive vibe that was set up at Don Pedro's-the vibrant tones were the perfect backdrop to celebrate with family and friends while the sun went down.

Kelly and Tam are so much fun! Her effortless hair style and soft glam makeup was the perfect complement for her stunning gown and the beautiful setting she and Yazmin of Sea of Dreams weddings created for her and Tam to celebrate their marriage at one of my favorite Sayulita venues, Villa del Oso. It was  breathtakingly beautiful, every detail was pretty much perfect!

The wedding day was sunny and gorgeous(as it typically is in Sayulita), and we had a lovely time preparing her and her loved ones for the big day. We even shared a good laugh when I took headache medication which didn't really do the trick for me....who knew Excedrine had caffeine that would make me feel completely jittery? *Note to self, always carry Tylenol just in case*! So with that being dealt with quickly, we got back to the process of making Kelly and her girls look absolutely gorgeous and get her to her dream day. With stunning florals by Francisco Salazar, and the amazingly talented Taryn Baxter photographing every moment, Kelly's dream team was complete! 

Kelly and Tam, you guys killed it and I know you are celebrating a lovely married life together as I still stalk you on Instagram:) Kelly, thanks so much for choosing me to design your bridal look, I still am absolutely in love with your style!!

Emily's Sayulita Bohemian Luxe wedding

Well hello! It’s been a while-I’ve had an amazing season filled with absolutely gorgeous brides celebrating their big day with family and loved ones, and am stoked to  have time to share some moments of these babes on their big day! 

First up, Emily. Her recent Sayulita wedding was a 10 out of 10 all around! I’m so grateful to not only work with such amazing brides...but the other vendors I have the good fortune to work with on these beautiful events are the icing on the cake! They say do something you love and you will never work a day in your life. Well, if you want to take it a step further....be surrounded by a team  of those people, and magic happens for everyone. A huge round of applause to all my amazing colleagues for being the exceptional artists and human beings they are! 

When I met Emily in person at her trial, I was blown away. Not only by how beautiful she was, but how sweet, funny, relaxed and fun she was to be around, not to mention the love she had flowing her way from every single person I met that was there to celebrate with her.  When  we first talked, she told me she wanted something luxurious, yet relaxed with a bit of boho-and I was drooling over the results! I loved her style and the overall esthetic of the final result! 

Seriously, every detail from the dress to the flowers, and everything in between was the perfect blend of luxury, tempered with a relaxed and laid back aporoach. Thanks so much for choosing me to be a part of your dream team-pretty sure we all knocked this one out of the park!
