Punta Mita Destination Wedding and Rehearsal Dinner

Beach Weddings

We have a truly special treat for you all today — not only are we sharing the beautiful destination wedding of Juliana and Marty, but we’ve also got their rehearsal dinner to share as well! Geoff Duncan Photography took the reins behind the camera for both days, which were loaded with entertainment, good food, and breathtaking views.

From the bride, Juliana: We wanted to stick to the traditional Mexican theme. Lots of dancing with great food, drinks and music. I really wanted all those who I care about the most to have a wonderful time in a beautiful setting. I love these Mexican tablecloths so we decided we would use them for the dinner tables and coordinate all the colors involved… we used every color. Blue, green, red, orange, pink, yellow, purple. My mother already owned a bunch so we borrowed some of my aunt’s and she stain guarded all of them. She also DIYed the gift bags and water bottles. The gift bags were incredible. My mom went to the market in Mexico and bought the bags and then filled them with the wedding program, Texas Trash, the middle size Herradura tequila, two glass tequila glasses with the cactus in the middle and water bottles with our names on them.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? You know, we didn’t do this but I wish we did — since my wedding my friends have started a photo share on icloud or photocircle. I think it’s a great way to see your wedding from different perspectives and its fun to see how people enjoyed the day when it.s a destination wedding.

We combined our first dance with our father daughter dance and mother and groom dance. Marty and I dance for the first 45 seconds and then our parents cut in. I didn’t want this part to be very long so we tried to do it all in one song.

Vintage Inspired Italian Alps Wedding

Wedding Design

Is there any better scenery than the Italian Alps? We think not, which is one major reason we love today’s styled shoot from Darya Kamalova and Bianco Weddings. Another reason? The absolutely breathtaking vintage-inspired gown from Tatyana Kochnova.

From the photographer, Darya Kamalova: The inspiration of this shooting was nature, elegance and the beauty and simplicity of 20s. Simple relaxed hair style and dark burgundy lips suit perfectly the image that we wanted to archive. Dark red wine colour flowers complimented the colour of the model’s lips. We loved so much the invitation set by Peony in dark blue and red palette and moreover the envelope’s inner side was trimmed with velvet that was highlighting even more the mood of 1920s.

The bespoke dress from Tanya Kochnova was just flawless: the silk pale rose lining with a light grey lace on it and hand-embroidered sequins top – a pure perfection in pastel palette. In this way we created a lovely contrast between the outfit and the decor: the dark colours vs. pastel colours. And you can see that they work perfectly together. It is only important to follow the right proportions.

The 2 venues for the shooting were the ancient convent and the top of the mountain in the Italian part of Alps. The heart was stopping to beat while looking down at the valley and at the sun rolling over the hill. To say “breathtaking” is nothing; it was spectacular. It is important to add that despite of the fact that it was a styled shooting, our couple was real and they are getting married soon!
