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!

Alexandra’s Luxe Teitiare Wedding

 Alexandra and Pete were married earlier this year at Teitiare Estate in a beautiful seaside celebration filled with touches to reflect their personalities(including their super cute fur baby!), mixed with luxurious florals and gorgeous decor to create an overall relaxed, yet sophisticated vibe.

Teitiare was the perfect setting for The Dazzling Details, Unique Rentals PV, and Flora Amor Mexico to come together and create a stunning atmosphere for everyone to celebrate the day(and well into the night) in style! I am still in awe of the floral installations above the tables! Alexandra’s dream team was rounded out with Taryn Baxter capturing the most stunning images from the day, and of course, I couldn’t do a party this size without a little help-this day it was the lovely Ella Leyva, thanks amiga!

I loved Alexandra’s soft, braided half-up style, paired with a more dramatic eye and the soft punch of color on her lips to complement the color palette was perfect! And can we just talk about the dress for a second? WOW!

Alexandra, thanks so much for inviting us into those special moments with you and your loved ones, and for choosing me to create the perfect bridal style for you. I wish you and Pete a lifetime of happiness and hope you have enjoyed reliving that day again today, even for a minute:)

And ps, Happy Birthday Pete-I hope you are having a good birthday week!

Erin and Greg's Luxe Sayulita wedding

Erin and Greg got married earlier this year and I absolutely loved the relaxed yet glamorous vibe of their day. Erin was a total knockout and rocked her wedding look like a pro, and Greg looked dashing in a casual 3 piece suit.

Karen from Sayulita Mexico Weddings styled the day beautifully with a gorgeous mix of muted bohemian textures with glass accents, and the Gran Villa was decorated so beautifully….she was definitely in all her glory! This was my first time working with Catalina Jean Photography and I hope it isn’t the last-I love their work and they were a pleasure to work around:)

I was a BIG fan of Erin’s classic and glamourous bridal look with perfect vintage waves, a simple and classic color palette for her makeup, and a single white flower behind her ear. Seriously, how can you go wrong with this beautiful look?? On top of that, Erin is total babe inside and out, and voila! One smokin’ hot Sayulita bride! This is how you do a glam bridal look for your beach wedding and have it completely make sense!

Thanks so much Erin for choosing me and sharing your precious getting ready time with me-I know how intimate those moments are and feel so privileged to be a part of those memories for you.

I loved meeting you and your amazing family-you guys killed it as the bride squad!!!

Lauren and Geoff’s Brisa del Mar wedding

Hailing from Toronto, living in Austria and getting married in Sayulita, Lauren and Geoff are definitely a global couple!

This wedding marks one of the first where I styled members of the bridal and groom’s party, and I had a blast! I definitely think the extra time to style your grooms hair etc is well worth it if they end up looking as great as Geoff and his guys!

As you can see, having fun was of the utmost importance to these two from start to finish and they definitely achieved their goal! Their ceremony and reception was held at the stunning Brisa del Mar, and was filled with relaxed bohemian vibes. I always love the florals and decor created by Mar Weddings Floral and I think they totally hit the mark with this one!

I love Lauren’s dress, if you can believe it, it was under $300. If I remember correctly, WELL under that amount too. She actually had another dress(a MUCH more expensive dress!) bought and paid for already and she sold it. Price aside…I think she made the right decision-that dress was perfect for her!! Just formal enough to elevate her look, but simple and not stuffy at all. I created a soft wave for her hair and added a textured twist to her hair to maintain her relaxed bridal look, and then we went for it with her makeup and gave her a bit more glam! I love how today’s brides are inspired by what they love and feel comfortable wearing, rather than what they think they are *supposed to do!

Lauren and Geoff, thanks so much for choosing me-it was a privilege spending the day with you and I love watching your European adventures!!!
