Lauren & Scott Destination Wedding

I am so stinkin’ excited to share this wedding with you all!!!!! Ladies and Gentlemen… I would like to formally (haha formal as in, an actual blog post) introduce you all to my very first (well, out of the country) destination wedding!!!! Lauren contacted me so long ago about planning her wedding somewhere in Mexico. That was literally how it started. “I want to get married in Mexico, but no clue where.” We worked endlessly to first of all, find a venue that fit what she was looking for, for her and her guests… once we tackled that obstacle, we jumped into planning the details. Now, I just want to throw out there, that finding a wedding venue is probably the hardest part on a bride’s to do list. When you’re looking for a venue in another country – that is a WHOLE other beast. I’m so grateful to have had a bride like Lauren, who knew what she wanted and knew she needed help from a planner – but totally recognized that this was also MY first time planning a wedding in Mexico. She was so gracious and patient while I figured some stuff out and dealing with finding and vetting vendors I’ve never worked with before. Cannot thank her enough for that! In the end, it was such an incredible experience and I learned SO much. Turns out, I LOVE planning destination weddings haha. Be sure to scroll through and see all the gorgeous images ¬†from their incredible wedding WEEK in Playa del Carmen and links to all our amazing vendors who absolutely nailed it!

We also had the opportunity to help with the design for this wedding. We worked with Lauren on the perfect color palette that match the scenic beach backdrop without it being a full on “beach theme” wedding. We opted for bold blues, soft light blues, gold and tons of white florals. Classic but romantic. We also, thought it would be gorgeous to play up the concept of beach/water by incorporating some watercolor details in all of our paper products. And drawing on the concept of the clear skies of a tropical island, we incorporated a few details with signage on clear acrylic. We had SO much dreaming up the details for this fun group. They were a blast and appreciated every little touch!

Also, this is hands down my fav reception photo EVER.
