Featured on The Knot!

Choosing a theme for your wedding day can be difficult, but I always encourage my couples to follow their heart! When you have something special in your life, use that to create the day of your dreams. That’s exactly what Mandy and Diego did by taking the colors and fun of a fiesta and turning them into wedding decor! Their Mexican wedding  was a stunning and colorful wedding celebrating love, heritage, and family. It has been featured on The Knot and I’m thrilled to be sharing it with you today, too!

Colorful Mexican-Themed Wedding

When it came to the ideas for their wedding, Mandy and Diego kept coming back to the fact that they really got together on their trip to Guanajuato, Mexico. They both have a Mexican heritage and love their culture. In addition, Mandy is a huge Disney lover and adored the movie, Coco. The movie became inspiration for their wedding day, especially the colors and decor. Mandy and Diego’s vision was all about representing their Mexican culture in a modern way while still keeping some of the traditional ways! 

The wedding took place in Parrish, Florida at a wedding venue called The Barn at Lone Oak Acres. This was such a perfect venue for the barn wedding inspiration they were sourcing details from. The bridal party was dressed according to the beautiful array of colors featured in the wedding, a selection of red, pink, orange, yellow, and navy in custom-made gowns from Mexico. Diego’s suit was also custom made in Mexico! With the rustic backdrop of the venue, the colorful choices definitely popped and brought a new life into this space. 

“With it being a Mexican-themed wedding, I wanted everything to be authentic down to the last detail. Starting with the groom’s suit, it was a traditional mariachi suit that was made in Mexico, along with the red embroidered bridesmaid dresses that were custom made in Tamaulipas, Mexico” the bride shared.

Mexican-Inspired Reception

The menu for the reception was absolutely delicious! Continuing the theme of their Mexican heritage, the food included tacos and traditional green pozole, Jarritos on the tables, and a Tres Leches cake from Mariana’s Bakery. Everything was delicious! Mandy also found a gorgeous cake she loved on Pinterest and the baker was able to recreate it. The cake was 4 tiers with vibrant colors and floral details. They also included traditional Maracas on each table of the reception, customized to say, “shake for a kiss!” The attention to detail was beautiful!

Mandy & Diego 

11 years ago, Mandy and Diego met under circumstances of fate, as Mandy was friends with Diego’s sister at church. In fear of being rejected, Diego kept his feelings to himself and fostered their friendship, but as they grew older, they both realized there was no more accurate advice than “marry your best friend.”

So finally, on Mandy’s birthday, Diego proposed in front of Cinderella Castle at Disney World. Mandy told me that following their Engagement, they weren’t really in a rush to plan their celebration because they wanted to enjoy the time, but since they were engaged just a week before Thanksgiving, everyone was eager to know what was happening over the holiday visits. They began planning their wedding shortly after, envisioning this beautiful day of family and tradition. 

Congratulations Mandy and Diego! It was an honor to capture your big day and celebrate with you. I hope you both have a lifetime of love and happiness ahead of you and all the blessings!
