Hey all! My wedding was a lovely and wonderful time! I'm not into numerous photo posting, so I've posted our hotel's photographer's photos on our wedsite: Under the section "Stars Over the Sea Wedding Photos", it'll be the second slideshow. We're still currently waiting on our pro-pics and full-length pro-vid. I hope you all enjoy and leave comments in the g-book!

I want an Old Hollywood look, so my hair and makeup will reflect that. Also, since I'm marrying in Mexico, I wanted a bold red lip (signature of Old Hollywood) to play into the Spanish side of our wedding.

Hair: Reese Witherspoon, Milla Jovovich, unknown

Our colors are turquoise and gold. I'm trying to fuse beach chic w/o going over the top w/ "beachy" items. It's not my theme, so I have to walk a fine line. To start, my reception tables will be banquet style sort of like these:

Our centerpieces will be based on this arrangement:Decor Centerpiece Ideas photo 2

Instead of red, we're focusing on turquoise, so our centerpieces will consist of the following:

1) Turquoise colored sea fan: (coral) Decor Centerpiece Ideas photo 3

2) White peonies: Decor Centerpiece Ideas photo 4 3) Aqua Orchids: Decor Centerpiece Ideas photo 5

4) Nautilus Shell vases: White Ceramic Nautilus Sea Shell

5) Turquoise Votives (filled w/ water and floating candles): Decor Centerpiece Ideas photo 6

My wedding will take place in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico at Grand Velas Vallarta Resort and Spa on June 25, 2011, our second anniversary. I'm also on so I'll try to post my wedding planning developments as we go along.

Our theme is "Stars Over the Sea" with the colors turquoise/teal and gold. Our wedding will take place on the hotel's gazebo and the reception will be on the beach. I'm aiming for a light, ethereal, romantic, and relaxed atmosphere. There will be lots of candles and hanging lanterns. We're having one table, a banquet style, to add to the intimacy of the evening.

Our ceremony will take place at 5 p.m., which is fairly close to sunset. The reception will start at 7 p.m. We will have a sit-down dinner of 4 courses and of course, a custom-designed cake. More updates as we progress!
