Fiesta Wedding Inspiration

Couture Events partnered with Joielala Photography to create this fun Fiesta Inspiration Shoot to share with us today.

“While planning for the shoot I took a cruise on to the Mexican Rivera and I was completely inspired by everything around me- the style, culture, and colors of Mexico. While I was there, we found the papel picado, the multi colored paper banners. I also bought the paper flowers hand made by a street vendor in Mazatlan just for the shoot and then asked Paula of Rae Florae to put them together with live flowers to create a beautiful bouquet. She then wrapped them in multi colored ribbon to make it into the perfect “fiesta bouquet”.

The invites were made by Nichole at Nic. Roc. Designs. She used a color palate of orange, purple, and green. Each fabric wrapped card was sewn to create the perfect backdrop for the creative design. DIY Creative Favors/ Escort Cards: Colorful Cacti Favors. We bought the cactus at a local nursery. They were placed in little terra cotta clay pots to create fun and personal favor and place cards. Guests names were written on one side of the pot and “ Maria ♥ Jorge “ on the other side. They made the perfect fiesta memoir for the guests to take home.

The location for the shoot was the El Fandango restaurant in Old Town, San Diego. Old town was the ideal setting for this shoot as it filled to the brim with old Hispanic culture. The El Fandango is the perfect space for a rehearsal dinner or wedding reception. They also have a beautiful private outside patio for smaller, more intimate events.
