YOU’VE SAID, “YES!” AND YOU’RE ON CLOUD 9

but thinking about planning your destination wedding has your head spinning in circles

The wedding of your dreams is an experience that’s full of chic simplicity and relaxed elegance, and you’ve got the Pinterest board to prove it! But figuring out how to get from “yes” to “I do” for your destination wedding isn’t as easy as you thought. You’re ready to bring in an experienced destination wedding Guru who’s got the connections, and the design know-how to make your dream day happen.

No two destination weddings are ever the same. But couples who plan their weddings with me here in Mexico tend to spend around $50K USD.  The amazing news is that the VALUE of your wedding investment is So. Much. More. than if you were to spend the same at home. Think killer ocean views, incredible food, craft cocktails, gorgeous blooms, photos-to-die-for, and music-to-get-down-to. All wrapped up into an unforgettable experience with your closest family and friends.

On a stricter budget? I’ll be honest, I swoon over a luxury, all-the-details wedding. But I also adore a simpler celebration. If you are a couple looking for a well-planned wedding experience with fewer frills, please check my blog! I have lots of tips, tricks and resources to create a memorable celebration while ensuring that the quality and value of a more moderate investment results in the best experience possible. I can definitely guide you in next best steps.

WHEN IS YOUR WEDDING SEASON?

I offer my wedding services November through May, months that coincide with the best weather, and accept no more than eight weddings per season. This is so I can be attentive to each and every event detail. (While I will occasionally accept a special event June through October, I do my best to educate you about the reality of summer/fall weather in the area and necessary precautions to take.)

WHAT TYPE OF VENUES DO YOU WORK?

There is a variety of venues throughout the region in which to marry – private estates and villas, gardens, restaurants and hotels. While I have worked at all of them, the majority of my weddings take place at private estates and oceanfront garden venues across the Bay. I work together with you to help find the perfect venue fit and ensure a positive experience with the location.

DO YOU SPEAK SPANISH?

Absolutely! Despite having arrived to Mexico with a very limited Spanish repertoire (Corona and Hola!). I purposely immersed myself in the culture and language. That means I have learned organically from neighbors, friends and my community over the years. I am now fluent (and proud of it!)

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

My home base year-round is Puerto Vallarta. I am originally from a cute little island town in Northern Wisconsin. so I have that “Midwest Nice” about me, and I moved to Mexico in 2001. I offer my wedding planning and design services in Puerto Vallarta and its surrounding areas including Sayulita, Punta Mita, Mismaloya and everywhere in between!

DO I NEED TO BE IN TOUCH WITH EVERY VENDOR?

No. That is why you have me! There are a couple of vendors who I recommend you speak to directly (photographer and cinematographer, for example). This is because you will be interacting with them directly on wedding day, and it is so important to feel like a good fit. I do all the communicating with the remaining vendors. You see my goal is to simplify your wedding planning life!

WILL YOU HELP ME WITH MY WELCOME PARTY / REHEARSAL DINNER / BRUNCH?

Oh, I would love to! My initial planning services are priced for wedding only. But I offer different service options to assist with pre- and post- events depending on what level of planning is required. I absolutely love to be involved in these special events, It gives me an opportunity to ensure an extended quality experience. Plus I get to spend more time with you and your guests!

There are not enough words to describe how amazing Kristin and her team are. From the moment I inquired about working with the Dazzlign Details down to the very last second of our wedding, Kristin really went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. I tend to be extremely picky and from the beginning of the planning process, it seemed like Kristin could read my mind and ask me about a detail of the wedding before I even had to worry about it. She’s extremely organized and maps out a full planning timeline so you know exactly what needs to get taken care of by when so you’re not pulling your hair out (I will admit we fell behind schedule due to busy work schedules but Kristin was very good about sending us gentle reminders to stick to the agenda and we’re so grateful for it as it saved us loads of stress as we inched closer to the day of the wedding) a week before the wedding trying to scramble to finish up last-minute details. Besides being extremely organized and always two steps ahead of you, Kristin really has a vision for how to put the perfect wedding together based on your tastes. I always felt like I couldn’t put a cohesive vision together based on the jumbled thoughts I had in my head of my “perfect wedding.” But with her help, she pieced all of my random ideas together into the most beautiful wedding that my husband and I could’ve possibly imagined. All of our guests raved that this was one of the best weddings they’ve been to and we have Kristin to thank for it. The food/drink was amazing, the service was great, and the decor/ambiance was exactly what I had imagined. We’re so...

Kristin and team are phenomenal!

Look no further! Kristin and team are phenomenal! If you are searching for the perfect wedding planner....stop right now! You've found her! Kristin is the absolute best, and made all of our wedding dreams come true. From the food, to the decor, the ambiance, the flowers, etc. everything turned out exactly as we hoped and imagined. We had so many friends and family tell us that our wedding was one of the best they had ever been to! Kristin did not disappoint in the flawless execution of our big day. I am an extremely organized planner myself, and throughout the entire process she was amazing to work with. Kristin was amazing with communication, in providing recommendations,  ongoing guidance and advice.  I actually miss her already and wish we could redo the wedding! She is absolutely amazing at what she does. Long story short, we were beyond happy with our wedding, loved every single moment, and can not recommend Kristin more highly!! She is hands down the most wonderful wedding planner and truly dazzling!!!
