It has been a while since I posted a real wedding, and I’m making up for it by sharing a beauty with you today!  This wedding is so pretty, full of DIY, but has a Mexican flair that makes it really unique.  Lots of eye candy for you today!

From Jennifer, the bride:
As far as how we made our wedding “us” we wanted to pull in a lot of rustic, Mexican inspiration to keep the tone of our wedding mellow and comfortable (we like to think of ourselves as being the laid back types) while still keeping things sweet, delicate and pretty. We used a lot of rustic things like burlap and cacti and then juxtaposed that with more feminine materials like ribbon and lace. Our colors were peach and cactus green with some hints of champagne and ivory. I am obsessed with garlands and hanging type decorations so we did a ton of that. We had handmade papel picado garlands imported from Mexico and the rest we made. We also had a graphic designer construct papel picado wraps for the hurricane vases on each table (as well as the matching “bride” and “groom” garlands for our chairs) and tied them with burlap twine. I stole the idea for the garland around the arch where the ceremony was from an anthroplogie display. The one at anthropologie was coffee filters only, I added additional tissue paper, lace, and ribbon. The ribbon/flower garland hanging from the trees was something I just came up with accidentally while playing with ribbon and silk flowers. Actually, so much of our decor really came from me sitting at my dining room table playing with all the pretty things I had gathered. 🙂 And of course my family and friends helped execute all my prototypes in what I called my wedding factory.
I love the succulents mixed with the feminine color palette and lace, don’t you?  I’ve actually been to a wedding at this venue – my cousin got married there close to ten years ago, and it was a gorgeous place! What is your favorite part of this lovely wedding?
