Candice and Kris tied the knot at La Vida in Bucerias this past November. The wedding celebration was so much fun to plan as the couple was completely open to alternative ideas! They opted for a cocktail-style/station reception as opposed to a formal seated dinner, and they kept the heart of the celebration close to their hearts - utilizing local products and food to give their guests a true taste of Mexico (where the bride's family owns a home)! A simply amazing day!

The ladies spent the day relaxing and beautifying while the guys moved to their own beat!
Guests arrived to a sandy beach ceremony decorated with local adobe pots overflowing with florals, petals covering the aisle and a wispy and beautiful canopy awaiting the arrival of the bride and groom!
As the ceremony was about to begin, Candice peeked around the corner to watch her bridal party process! The trumpets and voices of mariachi sounded grandly as the bride made her way down the aisle to exchange vows with her future husband!
And when the ceremony was finished, the festivities began! Abundant appetizers and refreshing cold drinks were served as guests mingled on the beach in lounge areas designed with bright colors, florals and a touch of "amor."
As the sun went down, candles and lights were lit and the party moved from the beach to the terrace where a Mexican-style dinner awaited guests - fresh fruit waters, hand-made quesadillas, on-the-spot guacamole, fruit skewers and so much more was available as guests continued to mingle long into the night.
And following the couple's first dance and a stunning fireworks display, the dance floor heated up - keeping guests of all ages smiling and laughing all night long!
Congratulations Candice and Kris!
