Our Bohemian-Bling Beach Wedding: Tulum, Mexico


As most of you know, my now husband, Nicholas and I got married last year on 11.11.13. Surrounded by our family and closest of friends, we were married by Mayan shamans on the soft, white sand of Tulum, Mexico.

Our wedding was inspired by our love for travel, the ocean, the unconventional and my love for glitter and all things sparkly. We put a lot of thought in to how we could personalize and add meaning to our wedding and ended up making most everything from our wedding invitations to the programs to the 65+ friendship bracelets that we included in everyone's welcome bags. An experience never to be forgotten, there is not one thing that I would change about this magical day.

It took me a good month to create these 100+ hand-made invitations. 
All artwork and design was created by me. The address stamp I purchased from Red Cloud Boutique.




We used this picture to create our Thank You (post)Cards.

Nic created a book filled with pictures of us and all of our family and friends that were in attendance. He left blank pages for people to write on in the book using some of my watercolors from the wedding invitations.

How adorable are these custom dolls, gifted to us by a dear friend. 
We managed to bring them from LA to Mexico and back without crushing them!

Our tables were named after things that are very important to us: Family, Friends, Love, Hope and Dreams.

Sticking with the beach theme-- our escort cards/wedding favors were messages in bottles. Little glass bottles with cork tops that contained a hand-written sentiment for each guest. The messages were written on gold glitter paper and rolled in to the bottles. I created and painted each heart-shaped name tag to be unique and Nic wrote the guests name and table in each.

Purchased in Tulum, the beautiful ever so perfect, handmade box was gifted to us by dear friends at our wedding and included on our welcome table.

You can't see our little birdie cake-toppers in the cake shot above, but here they are. Handmade by Skye Art, these adorable little birds now sit in our living room.
