I knew when we got engaged that we wanted a wedding that was laid-back, and comfortable, so a destination wedding was perfect. Puerto Vallarta has been a family vacation spot for years so it was an obvious choice. While I wanted a wedding on the beach I didn’t want a ‘beach’ themed wedding. At some point in all the Pinterest Perusal, I found an image of some flags flowing in the wind and it was an -Aha- moment. We took that idea and ran with it! The wedding dress was the most difficult item in the whole process. After visiting many bridal stores and boutiques I was ready to give up. Finally I asked the talented Jen Stenersen of Eden’s Bouquet if she would be willing to design my dress (she typically does High end, made to order, Childrens’ clothing.) She nailed it with all the ‘flowy silk yumminess’-to put it in my Mom’s words.. I enjoy graphic design so I decided to tackle the invitations  and the grace card myself, I thought the watercolor look went well with the flags! The programs were the real labor of love, Josh, my Mom, and I spent several days putting those together. We both come from large families so there was a well of talented people to recruit for our big day. Josh’s family, is one of those musically gifted groups (that annoy all of us who can’t seem to carry a tune) so they took care of all the ceremony music. My uncle, a ceramic artist, made the medallions for the programs, another Uncle officiated the ceremony. The clothespin dolls were hand painted by my younger sisters. All of the little ones who came to the wedding became ‘flag’ carriers. Also, if you look close you will find a bunny charm on my shoe for my childhood nickname. Lighting the lanterns off over the ocean was the perfect touch to finish the night.
