A Mexican Fiesta Engagement Shoot!
Oh my days as if I wasn’t excited enough about heading off to Mexico in a couple of weeks, this engagement shoot dropped into our inbox and I went into overdrive! The styling and photography of this beautiful shoot is Mexico down to a tee, the colours, the paper picado and of course…the piñata! There’s also a ton of sequins, Mexican desserts, fun confetti and a whole lotta love making this one festive fiesta you won’t want to miss!
“Leslie and Jessie wanted something to represent their Mexican heritage. This styled session was held in Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek, CA. Borges Ranch is an amazing location filled with vibrant colors and historic artifacts. I wanted to create a colorful styled photo shoot inspired by the couples hertiage, but we also wanted to add some color, we wanted to represent a true mexican fiesta. We knew that confetti, sequin, and bright colors were a must. We incorporated a lot of fuchsia, gold, orange, yellow, purple hues to go with the overall theme fiesta theme.
I love to create really fun wedding ideas so when planning a a vibrant colorful Mexican fiesta I knew I would incorporate some traditional elements but spice it up by adding sequins which is a huge trend in 2014. The setting is set to resemble a chic but festive Mexican vibe. We combined traditional baked make deserts with modern inspired cake pops and macaroons. Traditional Mexican vases known as jarritos were used used for a more traditional look.
The flowers were a mix of bright colors which add a touch of rustic feel we wanted the shoot to be inspired by the style, culture, and colors of Mexico. I knew I wanted to include traditional elements such as papel picado, maracas, mexican desserts. I also wanted to include paper flowers to create the perfect fiesta..
We were thrilled to have gorgeous photography done by Angie Capri. This wedding vow inspiration is the perfect mixture between a Mexican fiesta, beautiful surroundings, lots of bright colors, flowers, and love. Many Thanks to my incredible vendors.”
