Rustic Mexican Fiesta Wedding

Who doesn’t love chips, salsa and margaritas? Well … we certainly do! So, it’s no surprise that we are super excited to feature Randy and Naomi’s rustic Mexican fiesta wedding. Complete with a mariachi band, signature margarita cocktail and tasty Mexican food food served at the reception.

All held at a private berry ranch in Watsonville, California and perfectly captured by Kristen Wood. As always, there are a ton more photos to see in the full gallery here, and Naomi goes into more detail about their special day, so be sure to read more.

From The Bride:
Our first look was really special. I got to see Randy from afar while he was getting ready for me to appear, and the first sight of him made me so excited. I felt like a little kid and I couldn’t wait to go see him. At the moment of our first look, there were a lot of things going on in the background with people setting up and people arriving, but I’ll never forget how we locked eyes and the depth of our gaze spoke more love than we had words for. We couldn’t stop smiling.

Advice for couples planning:
At times the process is every bit as stressful and overwhelming as people say it is, but it’s all worth it. Decide on what’s important for each of you. For us, it was good photography and ensuring that our guests have fun. If you set the stage for a good party, the pieces will fall into place.

Hire a wedding coordinator. During the planning phase and on the day of the wedding, she was incredibly helpful. We had a few hiccups the day of our wedding and the wedding coordinator was invaluable. She was amazing.
Last piece of advice: Don’t lose each other on your wedding day. You get so caught up in seeing your guests that you easily get separated. So do your best to stay by each other.

My mother and her friends are incredibly talented and did most of the décor. She did all my floral, handmade wooden signs and table numbers from old fence panels and acrylic paint, collected antique milk glass for the centerpieces, used personal furniture for all the specialty tables, and incorporated her own lace linens and doilies throughout the venue.

A friend of mine bought me authentic sombreros, which sat at our sweetheart table. All in all the day was fabulous. I truly didn’t want it to end, and if I could, I would relive my wedding day over and over again! I’d describe our wedding as Rustic Mexican Chic. The blend of lace and antique details with a bit of Mexican flare made the wedding feel conventional yet original.

My aunt is a fabulous baker and us a small confetti cake (her own recipe) topped with a white peony and green hydrangeas made of gum paste.

    Thank you for the compliments on the table numbers. I made these table numbers as well as all the other signage. I rent them out with the stands or I can custom make any sign if you prefer to keep. Located in the bay area/central coast. Please email me and we can talk.
    Thank you and Congratulations on your up coming Wedding!

    Hello, this weekend is pleasant designed for me, for the reason that this time
    i am reading this great educational post here at my residence.

  34. This is just the beginning when you want to start it.
    on the other word, when your friend make use of the same
    app, share it to you, and you share it too then you can certainly have a wide range wifi
    hot spot in your neighborhood. I dont need to share with you
    how embarrassing it may be having an intruder spread
    malicious info on you via your Facebook Password Finder account.

On the other hand, the threads are so quick instructor can. Might just you want prolong them a little bit through pursuing moment? We appreciate you the posting.

    The 10 DVD’s cover every part of your body, from you arms, to legs, to core. I can answer both of those questions with one sentence.

    get into an Ivy League school, and almost fail to do so, but they both succeed in the end.
    If you’re going retail with your small town business idea, be
    very careful to follow what the town already demands.
    These companies have always taken advantage of them through exploiting them on their finances.
