This past weekend, we had the opportunity to be part of an amazing celebration of family, friends and true love! Jess and Paul were meant to be - it is clear from the moment you see them interacting so naturally together and how they are so very clearly enamored with one another!
Their vows were exchanged at beautiful Guadalupe Church in downtown PV; we don't have photos from the church so we'll just have to wait for some shots from photographer Stephanie Williams! We do, however, have our amateur photos from the reception to tide you over until the professional peeks are in! Congratulations Jess and Paul - it was a true honor to work with you to plan your day!
Guests were welcomed to a beach lounge for the cocktail reception; Jess mentioned early on in the planning that she really thought the idea of a "lovebird" theme was cute! So much has been done with lovebirds, and so VERY much in the couple's color palette of gray and yellow, so we really tried to keep things fresh and interesting! Take a look and see what you think!
Jess collects postcards from all the places she travels, so we set up a "wishes for the lovebirds" station at which guests wrote notes to the couple on postcards featuring scenes of Puerto Vallarta.
The cocktail lounge:
We found the most authentic and adorable wooden bird Christmas ornaments for the guests - a perfect nod to the lovebird theme AND so-very-appropriate as Jess and Paul were engaged on Christmas Day!
Escort cards popped out of 85 small laminated pails filled with dusty miller and yellow pompoms!
Centerpieces were lit from the inside, and guests found their seats at the tables with individually embroidered napkins with guest names!?
To see how we put this wedding together, go here!
Congratulations Jess and Paul! We wish you the very very very very best!!!
From the bride and groom:
We just got back from our honeymoon last night and had to email you ASAP. We just wanted to thank you so much for all that you did with our wedding. It was more than we could have ever hoped for - from the ring pillow, to the cake, to the Christmas ornaments, the postcards, to the dance floor, to the square tables, to the fireworks surprise from our parents, we really could go on and on...
It truly was the best day of our lives and we want to thank you so much for everything you did.
Jess & Paul
