Since today is a holiday, we figured a destination wedding would be the perfect way to celebrate. We’re so excited to share Elizabeth and Matt’s wedding designed by the fabulous Mishka Designs at Casa Quetzal and shot by Jillian Mitchell Photography. Elizabeth and Matt’s reason for wanting a destination wedding was the same reason Bryan and I chose one as well–after attending a destination wedding and loving the experience so much, we decided we wanted the same for our guests! We’ll let our gorgeous bride tell you a little more!
Some words from the bride:
“After being a guest at my cousin’s destination wedding, I was absolutely in love with the idea of traveling with all our favorite people to get married. It was so special, intimate and so much fun! We liked Mexico from the beginning as we love so many elements of the Latin culture. Deciding where in Mexico was more difficult, we wanted to get married somewhere that had an old world, hacienda feel to it. I happened upon Mishka Designs, my wedding planner, and I absolutely loved all of her weddings so I decided Puerto Vallarta would be the perfect place!! With Mishka’s help, we found the eventual wedding venue, Casa Quetzal, a beautiful villa over looking the Pacific Ocean.
The venue was breathtaking on the day of the wedding. The details were unbelievable, from the hand-strung orchids in the ceremony space to the painted talavera shot glasses for our tequila tasting. After the ceremony we joined our family and friends in sipping margaritas, watching the setting sun over the bay, and listening to the mariachi band serenade the group. After our first dance in a cobblestone courtyard, the party began to start and Mishka brought out the hand-painted maracas.”
