It’s not everyday you get a call from a long time family friend 6 weeks before their destination wedding asking you to step in to be their wedding planner when theirs cancelled on them. Well, that’s just what happened for Blake + Allie’s Todos Santos Wedding.
Of course I quickly accepted her request and we immediately began finalizing all of the details for their Mexican Wedding for 135 guests. We had a great team of vendors including the staff at Hotel San Cristobal who helped to secure all florals for me to construct all of the bridal bouquets and centerpieces.
What makes this newer hotel stand out was that its really inclusive including a beautiful chapel with a curved roof and stunning wood benches with fabulous acoustics which was perfect for their friend who serenaded the couple alongside his guitar.
Another highlight for me this wedding was Einstein, the beer toting donkey that greeted guests after the ceremony. He was so sweet and made me want to have an animal at all of my weddings.
On Wedding Day, I woke up to rain (for the second time on our trip) even after being told, “oh it never rains in February.” But it turned out to be a magical thing as it made everything look new and shiny.
We love brides like Allie. She was super organized and have every detail planned out and we just had to execute. It was that special attention to detail that really took their wedding to the next level including her papel picado insipried place cards which has now become my new paper decor piece.
Trust me when I tell you this was not just a wedding day, but a wedding experience with all of the fun events leading up to the big day including a pool party led by Pullman-based DJ Goldfinger. If you are a Coug you know exactly how this party went!!!
For myself everything couldnt have gone more perfect and we were so happy to have been happy to help Allie + Blake have their magical destination wedding.
