Colorful Evening Rehearsal Dinner In Mexico

How fun are all of these colorful flowers and magical decorations? We can’t wait to share the gorgeous wedding with you tomorrow!

From Easton Events:

Dinner was set on the first floor in an atrium style room with an open ceiling to the stars. It was a perfectly warm November night. Lanterns, stars, and candles were suspended throughout to create a canopy of twinkling light. The night commenced with a fabulous dinner and a series of epic toasts. At the close of dinner the Bossa Nova band struck up the chords and all of the guests transitioned to the roof top lounge for a late night of dancing.

COLORFUL EVENING REHEARSAL DINNER IN MEXICO

This rehearsal dinner from Easton Events just seems like an absolute dream. The beautiful couple, Stefy and Michael, actually met in gorgeous Cabo. Since the bride, who has a travel blog, grew up Mazatlan, they knew Mexico was the perfect place to celebrate their wedding with close family and friends. Check back tomorrow for Part 2 of their colorful rehearsal dinner. We can’t wait to share even more stunning images from Eric Kelley later this week!

From Easton Events:
Michael and Stefy’s wedding was held over Thanksgiving weekend in November in Mazatlan, Mex. We at Easton had the joy of participating in their incredible weekend celebration. To kick off their Mazatlan wedding celebration, Michael’s family hosted family and friends for a truly memorable rehearsal dinner. 
 
After the ceremony rehearsal at The Cathedral, the bridal party and family were lead by a mariachi band through the town to Casa Garcia for cocktails. Drinks were passed on an array of colorful trays, brilliant embroidered pillows and linens popped throughout the space, and the escort cards were suspended on brightly colored ribbons from a gorgeous tree in the center of the courtyard. After mingling to the sound of the mariachi, the guests were lead by the musicians to La Casona for dinner and dancing. 
 
Michael and Stefy are full of palpable joy and this evening set the tone for a magical wedding celebration. We enjoyed every minute of planning and dreaming with this family for their destination fete.
