This past weekend found me in Puerto Penasco, Mexico at the gorgeous property of Bella Sirena on the Sea of Cortez. Tia and Matt were wed on the beach in front of one of the casitas at Bella Sirena. It was a weekend filled with joy and fun. It began on Friday with a street-taco rehearsal dinner with a bonfire smore’s bar for a rehearsal on Friday (pictures to come in a second blog post!).
On Saturday afternoon, Matt gave Tia’s daughter, Ava, a bracelet to match the one the two had chosen together for Tia’s Mother’s day gift a few years ago. He even got them matching charms to remember when they became a family. At the ceremony, Ava walked Matt down the aisle to await the bride. After the couple exchanged their vows, they ended the ceremony with a family vow to love, respect, and celebrate each other.
The ceremony was followed by deliciously cold signature cocktails on the lawn. Toward sunset guests were ushered up to the rooftop for an orange and pink sunset-inspired reception. Tia and Matt had an especially lively first dance surrounded on the rooftop by bright sparklers. Then the guests descended to the patio and lawn for dancing and celebrating. The night ended with a paper sky lantern release on the beach. It was just beautiful watching lanterns float over the casita and into the night.
Congratulations Tia, Matt, and Ava!
Thank you to all the vendors that helped make the weekend incredible!
