Isla Mujeres Mexico wedding: Liss & Tyler

Categories   Real Weddings

We love it when two creative people find each other and end up happily ever after. But we love it MORE when two creative people decide to get married and share their insanely cute wedding (and esp invitations) with us.









Liss is a Bay Area photographer and Tyler is radically talented designer. Umsoyeah, their wedding is serious fodder for inspiration. Tyler designed the entire invitation suite (obvs), based on fabric Liss found on ebay. And Liss chose a supremely talented photog friend to shoot their wedding in Isla Mujeres in Mexico. We can’t stop looking at their invites. Who recreates a PASSPORT for their save-the-date?? Sooo cute. And of course they have an awesome (and essential for a destination wedding) website.

We especially love the sweetly detailed but thoroughly laid back beachy feel. You can tell they spent time on the things that really mattered to them and let everything else just be. Purely speculation of course, but we like to think they concentrated their energy on what was important: the two of them, getting hitched on the beach with their close family and friends… surrounded by perfectly designed paper products and patterns.

Stunning site...can't wait for more. Great palette, subtle layout is nice on the eyes, and fantastic type/calligraphy combination. Very nice nav, creative and fun, but not busy and over the top. Balanced, simple and clean. LOVE IT, especially your edge and originality. Creative people need more resources/inspiration like yours...more please!!

I have stood in the sand at exactly that spot on the beach in Isla Mujeres! Great photos! Oh, and I'm so glad 100 layer cake is finally here!

Does the MOH have the groom's ring on a ribbon around her wrist? Totally brilliant. Love that.

Isn't it such a cute wedding? We love it too! And Allie, it does look like the MOH is wearing the ring on a ribbon. So sweet. Thank you all for your nice comments!

Protocol Prompt: Proper “Man”ners « Practically Married on Mar 13, 2009

[...] Traditionally, the bride/wife wrote the thank-you notes, but now more and more grooms are getting into the task. If your fiance’s handwriting makes people think he’s a doctor (or maybe he is!), have him help you with other tasks — maybe he’d be willing to develop a spreadsheet to track gifts/notes, seal & stamp envelopes, or has graphic design skills and wants to actually design the stationary himself! For a look at an amazing groom-designed invitation suite, check out Liss & Tyler’s wedding, featured on 100 Layer Cake. [...]

I love all of your ideas! I was wondering if you could possibly let me know- where did you get those passports? They are exactly what I'm looking for! Also, what site did you use for your wedding website. I am also having a destination wedding in Mexico and would like to know some ideas. Thank you!

Now that's a truly unique idea. I love the invitations.
