Wedding: Lauren & Christine

From Lauren: As an event planner, I wanted to have a destination wedding to ensure we had an intimate affair with our closest family and friends and also to relieve some of the stress of planning a large wedding. We had over 50 people fly to Mexico to enjoy a week of festivities!

Naturally, I had to get involved in some DIY projects. Our colors were ivory, navy and burlap with a hint of mint. I created almost every aspect of the wedding – invitations, menus, reminder cards, table numbers, etc. My vision was rustic beach with a Mexican flare. We both really appreciate the holiday Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and what it stands for, so it was incorporated into our planning. Sugar skulls were subtlety added into the mix – on our welcome cups, wedding favors and cake topper.

Our day flowed perfectly. Nicole Barr (our photographer) made sure of it! She kept us on track and on time. We knew we wanted a “first look” to calm our nerves and prevent “ugly” crying during the ceremony – so glad we did. It was an intimate moment and we were able to get a lot of photos taken during this time as well.

My cousin Jan married us. Christine and Jan worked hard to create a beautiful ceremony. It was personal, unique and from the heart. Our ceremony and cocktail hour were on a gorgeous sky deck overlooking the ocean, and a generous breeze was welcomed as it was hot. The reception was situated in between two pools, creating a beautiful back drop in the evening with candles, strung lights and papel picado. Our first dance was to Van Morrison’s “Crazy Love.”

We ended the night by jumping in the pool! It started as a fun shot we wanted to have the photographer take, and then our bridal party and guests joined us! It was the highlight of the evening and certainly something we will never forget.

We have received countless comments on how much fun our guests had and I wish we could do it all over again!
