Jen and Micah wed at Dreams on November 10th; the weather was perfect, the day was beautiful and the tides - well, the tides were unusually high! Jen and Micah really stressed that they wanted their day to be full of fun and interaction with their guests; they told us that their favorite thing to do together is playing board games, cards, etc. and Micah even jokingly asked if it was possible to do "game night" at their wedding! Well, we did include games . . . in perhaps a less-expected way - and the night was full of fun and guest participation!!! The amateur photos from Jen and Micah's day; more professional photos later on from photographer Paulina Ulloa!
I love moments like these when bridesmaids dash off for a photo, leaving behind a pretty collection of bouquets, clutches and shoes!

To encourage guest participation, we created a wedding Mad Lib - a story about the bride and groom's meeting and first big date! Guests did a great job of providing vocab words to make the story truly . . . unique!
Guests took home traditional Mexican games - Cubilete, Loteria and Mexican playing cards - as gifts!
In lieu of a guestbook, we created mini wish books that also served as table numbers. Guests at each table were asked to share their wishes for the bride and groom in their table number booklet!
And throughout the day, we received more comments and questions on these centerpieces than anything! Several people even asked where they could buy them for their own weddings later that week at Dreams! Fortunately for Jen and Micah, there was no chance of a duplicate as they were made in our own workshop! We loved how they turned out!!!

Congraulations Jen and Micah! It was a privilege to work with you!!!
