Festive Mexican style wedding: Elyzza + Michael

categories Real Weddings

Happy Halloween, Cakelets! Prepare to swoon over today’s wedding. It’s got all the makings of a true Latin celebration. Bold colors + festive details + lots of sweets + the MOLAA (Museum of Latin American Art) in Los Angeles. We can only imagine how much fun Christina, of Simply Modern Weddings, must have had designing around Elyzza + Michael’s Mexican and Ecuadorian cultures! Considering our current Pop-up Shop is all about honeymooning in Mexico, we couldn’t help ourselves from sharing this colorful gem, shot by Ashley Rose.

Helpful tip to know about some venues: E + M saved $1,000 on booking both the reception and garden area (where the ceremony took place) at the MOLAA by switching their date to Friday instead of Saturday!

These colorful panels with paper flowers were their place cards!

Wanting to go with something different for a guest book that they knew they could keep and use later down the road, Elyzza purchased a large traditional ceramic jarro for $80 and had guests sign it with bright pens.
