¡Feliz Aniversario Krissy + Mike!
I have a visual feast (another Evrim Icoz stunner) of an anniversary post for you today, as Krissy & Mike of Colorado celebrate 2 years of wedded bliss. Another couple very dear to my (our) heart(s), they were so amazing to work with and had such a fun, truly heartfelt and original wedding full of love, family, friends, and a million little details that brought it all together in one stunning package, as beautifully documented by the ever-talented Evrim Icoz Photography. Memorable moments from the week included a bluegrass jam session by Mike "Banjo" Fritz and his pals around the bonfire at the La Terrazola welcome party, and the highly anticipated arrival to town of the couples' friend Harry, who actually rode his bicycle all the way from Colorado to Sayulita. By himself. To raise money for cancer. Awesome.
Krissy & Mike's Brisa Mar Palapa wedding was bursting with brilliant Mexican color, from the hand-sewn day-of-the-dead patterned napkins that each guest received as a favor, to maracas, to tequila bottles naming each table, to our favorite kids' play area ever, to the photo wall, and on and on and on. Their Moms chipped in on the DIY front, with Mike's artist mom painting 2 large canvases that they rolled up and shipped to Mexico where we had them re-stretched for hanging in the Palapa entryway. Krissy's mom hand-sewed pillows echo-ing the theme of the paintings, "All You Need Is Love." Krissy sourced Etsy for tons of adorable details like a mini "All You Need Is Love" banner to drape across the front of the cake table, and the cute wooden cake topper complete with the couples' beloved pup.
I'll let the plethora of gorgeous images (sorry, it was hard to narrow it down - too much beauty to share!) speak for themselves, and you can also check out Evrim's original blog post here.
