Hey, ladies! Huddle up and hear what I’m about to say. Today’s styled shoot would surely inspire you to travel to Mexico. Yes! Mexico. So before delving deeper, pack your bags and get your partner ready for this will surely be one good reason to getaway. Known as one of the most romantic destinations on the planet, Mexico offers not only it’s beaches but also it’s overwhelming culture that keeps your passion alive! This styled shoot is inspired by the rich hand-crafted details so abundant in Sayulita’s boutiques and beaches. Dekker Photography teamed up with Sayulita Dream Weddings to craft a vibrant beach picnic elopement at beautiful Rancho Huracán. Enjoy!
We’re All About The Details
Beth from Dekker Photography, originally approached Andrea of Sayulita Dream Weddings with the idea for a shoot based around the gorgeous hand-embroidered trademark gowns from Sayulita’s famous Pachamama boutique/gallery. These gowns were designed in collaboration between Pachamama and artist Jose Flores, each dress takes approximately 2-3 months to complete.
Francisco Salazar of Vodax Detalle de Lujo designed the flowers for the bride, table, and ceremony, incorporating gilded feathers, jewel-toned wild blooms, and luxe textures and colors throughout.
Rebecca D’Este of Sayulita’s Bliss Hair & Makeup Studio styled the beautiful bride, who wore one-of-a-kind jewelry from Sayulita Sol. The groom looked natural and handsome in clothing by Origenes David Luna Men.
Keeping with the laid-back, old-world, hand-made vibe, the mood was set with vintage Mexican records spinning on a portable turntable as the couple enjoyed their picnic, wine, and the beautiful sunset from their vantage point.
Plush Catering provided a delectable spread for our picnic, from feta-watermelon skewers and charcuterie boards to mini-tarts for dessert.
The dreamcatchers from Pachamama were the perfect backdrop for our beach/jungle ceremony and the stage for our beach picnic was set with hand-stitched blankets, bespoke pillows and beach-bags from Sayulita’s own Revolución del Sueño.
We wanted to incorporate native elements into the dream-catcher-framed ceremony, and Jose Villaseñor and Carolina Molinari of Mystic Native Wedding were the perfect partners – wrapping the Bride & Groom in symbolic ceremonial ribbon and greeting them with a purifying copal incense on arrival at the altar.
