Tecate Garden Wedding

You guys, can I just start off by saying that I am pro-international/destination weddings forever and always? I just want to put that out in the universe in hopes of crossing paths with some more adventurous couples out there - I’ve got you! So, onto the good stuff!

Sam’s vision was something I really jived with right off the bat - bohemian overgrown garden with a nod to the traditional English garden. Lots of blush and whites with whimsical pops of peach and orangey goodness. Pretty much one of my favorite color schemes - maybe because I was a major Flintstone Push-Pop enthusiast as a kid? Probably. Anyway, there were bright greens and lots of texture in Sam’s vision and I couldn’t be happier about it! Dare I say, peachy keen?

The wedding was beyond compare. The weather was perfect, the mimosas delicious and the people spectacular. The venue was on a four-acre organic farm with rustic Mexican decor. In the midst of kale beds lived the trellis where Jovan and Sam got married. That dress, his smile, the garden - all things lovely! Talk about a stunningly gorgeous and blissful ceremony, I can’t stop thinking about it. After the ceremony, we made our way through the buffet filled with the bounty of the land - yum! More beautiful weddings like this please!

All in all, it was an adventure and a half working this wedding, such a blast! Shoutout to my hubby (turned assistant) and his ability to power through anything! Seriously, the man is a beast. Throughout the two days, we managed to squeeze in some good eats at local restaurants, the best fuel! If you ever find yourself in Tecate, do yourself a favor and check out El Lugar de Nos. We can’t wait to go back!

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to create pretty things for this wedding and to have such awesome clients that put their complete trust in me! Nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients excited and teary when they see their flowers - and this wedding did not disappoint. Best wishes to Jovan + Sam on their adventures together, forever and always!
