Spanish Bridal Fashion + Mexican Pastels

A few months ago, Jaclyne from Heavenly Blooms contacted me with an idea to take this board I created last year for a fun Cinco de Mayo wedding and bring it to life. I loved the idea and the results came out so gorgeous! We wanted a fresh, modern take with soft, pastel colors instead of the expected bright colors. The amazing team of Stephanie + Isaac from This Modern Romance photographed the feature at the Star Ranch in Corona, CA. The Star Ranch would be such a great location for a wedding – amazing views, gorgeous landscape and an overall great atmosphere. Thanks so much to everyone who helped bring this to life and I hope you all love it as much as we do!

I absolutely loved the table design Jaclyne came up with. Super fresh + modern with a desert vibe. Love the use of the papel picado on the menus, invites, and even cake!

We even had smaller papel picado flags guests could wave as the couple walked back down the aisle.

I had two looks for our groom: a more casual vest and pants and this more modern suit above from Armani Exchange. I love the simple succulent as a boutonniere on the suit and the big pink flower with the fun vest.

  1. I would actually like to know where the vest, that the groom in this shoot is wearing, comes from.

  2. I love the style of the off the shoulder gown. I never was a fan of strapless, and this is an wonderful alternative. The large skirt and all the ruffles is just beautiful! Love it.

  3. I wish I would have seen this blog before my Mexican themed wedding! Love the ideas & photographs.

  4. I love the cactus centerpieces! I am trying to re-create them for my own wedding. Where can I get the pebbles that the vases are filled with?


  1. […] Of course, if I end up not being brave enough to go full-on floral crown, a simple bloom to the side of the head looks lovely and just as boho.  This lady has my dream wedding hair- length, volume, colour, style, fringe, flower… even the horse is pretty much perfect.
