Jess and Paul - Dreams PV

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.

Love always,
Jess & Paul


  1. ahhhh amazing!! thank you so much for everything and for your sweet comments :)

  2. What a phenomenal event and the details made it so much more.

  3. I absolutely adore the loveburds theme, from the cake, to the centerpieces, and the pillows are what really adds a different element.

  4. Wow, those details really are dazzling. What a great theme, I love it!

  5. This is such a great wedding- can you tell us, where did you get the bird ornaments?

  6. Simply Me, you certainly aren't the first person who has asked us about those bird ornaments! Unfortunately, the answer isn't quite as simple as most brides would like it to be! But here goes (for you and all the others who are after the bird ornaments!!!) There is a tiny little corner shop that opens from November through the beginning of every year for the Christmas season only. It is located on a side street off of Insurgentes St. across from the Rio Cuale Mercado. Find the HSBC bank across from the Mercado and follow the side street up to the corner; the Christmas shop is on the right hand side! Now..... I loved the ornaments myself so much that I bought enough for Jess and Paul's wedding and then gobs of them for myself as well! And when I say gobs, I mean GOBS! And now, as the Christmas season has passed, I realize that I truly don't need gobs of these ornaments no matter how absolutely adorable they are. Sooo... check out our Facebook account for the next Dazzling Detail giveaway and win yourself some birds! Details will be posted this weekend (Jan 30-31!)

  7. This wedding is amazing! Where did you find the lovebird pillows?

  8. The lovebird pillows were made by our team!

  9. I AM SPEECHLESS!!!!! This is the most BEAUTIFUL wedding I have ever seen! There was no detail that was left untouched.Amazing,amazing, and amazing!

  10. Loved everything about it. Where did you get the yellow and gray fabric.

  11. I Love the dance floor! Where is the music source? I'm getting married next summer on the beach and would love to do a similar style dance floor. Did you find that the sounds of the music was lost against the sounds of the water?

  12. I am so in love with this wedding! I found it two years ago and was so inspired, now that I'm planning my own wedding I'm definitely taking notes!! Are you able to rent couches like this? I dont want tables and love the idea of having couches and little square tables but have no idea where to start!
