The vision: a tropical, spa-like, oasis feel with touches of Mexico! When Mary and Josh contacted us about their wedding, they had already decided on Dreams PV as the place to exchange their vows but wanted a personalized service, attention to detail and beautiful design for their wedding day – our specialty! We were a perfect fit from the start! They wanted everything very simple, nothing over-the-top. And, of course, unforgettable.
A palette of white, pool and royal blues with touches of fuschia and magenta was the perfect combination for the celebration! The lovely Mary carried a bouquet of roses, orchids, statice and lisianthus, and she looked radiant and oh-so-happy!
What is more tropical and a little spa-like than a palapa with white chiffon sheers? Unfortunately, there isn’t an already-existing one on the beach at Dreams . . . so we made one! This was our first time building a palapa, and let me tell you – it takes some serious planning and designing! Those palm fronds have to be dried and layered in a very specific pattern so that they lay correctly and look beautiful! Kudos to all the under-appreciated palapa-builders of the world! We learned how complicated it actually is!
Bamboo chairs were perfect for this beach ceremony, and turquoise pots filled with magenta statice lined the aisle. Simple and so strikingly beautiful. As a fun detail, we utilized reception fabric scraps to make “ribbon-style wands “to be waved in the breeze at the kiss!
Family and friends gathered on the beach for the intimate ceremony, and the couple said their I Do’s beneath perfectly sunny-but-not-too-hot skies – it could not have been a better day for a wedding!
Following the ceremony, guests were invited to Las Palmas Terrace for cocktails, dinner and hours of fun! Clean white lounging furniture was arranged throughout the terrace, and patterned turquoise and white pillows added a touch of the tropics! Royal blue and turquoise vases held simple fuschia rose arrangements and incorporated that POP of Mexico in to the scene!
The bride and groom were welcomed to the terrace with a round of applause from their guests, and took some time to take in the scenery and enjoy some cocktails themselves!
Nearby, one long dinner table dressed in crisp white linens awaited guests . Alternating centerpieces of blue vases with fuschia roses and mosaic-tile vessels with curly willow and orchids were the perfect decor for spa-like with a Mexican touch! At each place setting, a hand-carved wooden bowl with sand and an orchid brought a bit of the beach to the table, and guests were thrilled to take home the beautiful bowls as a memento of the wedding!
The intimate dinner of family and friends was made even more memorable by wonderful toasts, and then, in keeping with the idea of clean, simple and pretty, a two-layered square cake with an orchid detail was dessert! Yum!
Dancing ensued, and at the end of the evening’s festivities, the couple surprised their guests with a fire dance performance – the perfect way to end the night with a WOW!
Congratulations Mary and Josh!
