Beth and Jason - Casa Las Palapas

Beth and Jason married in late May at a private villa in Nuevo Vallarta. Their colors were orange, orange and more orange, and we absolutely loved putting together this couple’s festive celebration!

There were so many lovely photos from this wedding that it was difficult to choose which ones to post! Here are a few of my favorites that I believe tell the story of the day!

I have to include this photo first as I believe it is my favorite wedding dress photo ever! Taken by local photographer Paulina Ulloa, it is absolutely gorgeous!

Photographically speaking, having a beautiful bridal party doesn’t hurt, and Beth and her gals were absolutely lovely! I love these “getting ready shots!” Everyone looks so spirited and so ready for a wedding!

Like many of our brides this past Spring, Beth requested an all-white bouquet! We added just a touch of color with a special cotton fabric tie. Beth’s father who recently passed was honored in several ways during the day – the first of which was the special locket and photo used in coordination with the bouquet.

Beautifully composed bridesmaid bouquets included various tones of orange roses, circus roses, mango calla lilies and orange parrot tulips!

A guitar duet welcomed guests to the beach ceremony area. Chairs were decorated simply with draping chiffon secured with ribbon and a single orchid blossom! Petals and pillar candles detailed the ceremony aisle.

The Jewish wedding ceremony took place beneath a chuppah created from Beth’s father’s tallis, another beautiful form to honor her dad’s life.

Following the ceremony, guests were ushered to the villa garden where bowls of scented water (in Mint and Melon) were available in a rustic sitting lounge for foot-refreshing!

Guests seating cards were secured by strips of coordinating fabrics and ribbons on panels hung on garden trees.

Tables with crisp white linens held beautiful wooden boxes of flower arrangements with tiny touches of white coral peeking out. Placemats were embroidered with the same coral design from Beth and Jason’s invitation.

This couple shared a passion for museums, and as a special touch (decided on just weeks prior to the wedding), we included an “Art Park” – a special garden area with enlarged and framed photos of the bride and groom hung on trees and resting against Mexican pots. Sometimes the last minute inspirations are the biggest hit!

And last but not least . . .
The combination of a beautiful wedding veil and an ocean breeze could be interpreted by many as a “wedding day challenge,” but for photographers, it presents a great opportunity for shots like these!

And this wonderful veil series of the bride and groom:

Congratulations to Beth and Jason – we were so pleased to be part of your amazing day! We received this from the happily married couple:

Dear Michelle and The Dazzling Details team,

Thank you so very much for making our wedding so magical! You truly are dazzling - all of the details were so well thought out. We love the way you incorporated all of the coral and orange elements! And the "Art Park" was an unbelievably thoughtful surprise! The whole affair ran so smoothly, and many of our guests have requested the dj's playlist and commented that they would use use the caterer if he were local! We have received our video - which is wonderful - and are eagerly anticipating the arrival of our photographs! Thank you again for making our wedding day so unforgettable!

Beth and Jason
