October 2010

Totally awesome. That’s Melissa and Adam in two words. Seriously. Two of the most real people that I have worked with yet and even rain couldn’t put a damper on their day. We rearranged, we saw, we conquered. Small, intimate, and located at the gorgeous Casa Guillermo in Conchas Chinas this wedding was full of surprises. From vows being read off an iPad to pretty much all of the attendants ending up in the pool. Oh and a delicious gelato bar by Naef Cuisine.

Adam’s only job for the wedding was to take charge of the music. So he did… and then some. Rather than just pick out their favorite songs and put them on a playlist he opted to include those songs in his vows for Melissa. It was hilarious. And amazing. And from what I found out, totally Adam. I mean who else could manage to insert ‘Ice Ice Baby’ and ‘Hip Hop Hooray’ into something as important and meaningful as their wedding vows? Adam did and it was incredible. Did I mention he also read them off of his iPad? Melissa’s face in the photos where Adam is reading his vows is absolutely priceless.

  • Melissa Peters Allgood - I love Love LOVE the photos! Jill you are simply the best and we were SO INCREDIBLY LUCKY to work with you! I love that most of the time I didn’t even realize you were there (unless, of course, you were directing traffic in Spanish as the umbrellas were moved over…and over…and over..)

    Thank you for capturing our special day in such a beautiful way!

  • Debby - Love,love this wedding, Jill! You captured soooo much of the day and evening!

Ashley, Dave and I immediately hit it off over a beer at La Perla and I was so excited when Ashley hired me to document her day along with Naef Cuisine to cater and Mishka Designs to add her touch of awesomeness.

Ashley and Dave also decided to see each other before the wedding which I love. It enabled us to get some great shots of the two of them before they got all hot and sweaty. Besides being such a great couple to work with, their friends and family were a blast. Take a look at the bouquet tossing to see how heated it got.

I’m going to start off with the amazing details that Mishka put together. The ceremony decor was based on Monet’s water lillies painting which is Ashley’s favorite and you can see it in the altar, the fans, and the maracas. The place tags were recipes from different countries that Ashley and Dave have traveled to over the years. Love this!

And now on to the wedding…

  • Elizabeth Lloyd - Gorgeous pictures Jill!! You really captured that wedding beautifully.

Allison and Jeff were married at Brisa del Mar palapa in Sayulita, Nayarit overlooking the entire beach. With catering by Don Pedro’s and design and coordination by Yazmin from Sea of Dreams this wedding was definitely one of a kind. The theme of the wedding was Day of the Dead and the design that Yazmin came up with was beautiful. I absolutely love the use of the lotería game throughout the wedding, especially as the placemats. In addition to Don Pedro’s there were also tacos al pastor my absolute favorite and instead of a wedding cake, churros!

Allison got ready at Villa Amor which is on top of the South hill of Sayulita and therefore has gorgeous light peeking through the windows…
