Belha Villa Wedding in Mexico

Wedding Design

If you’re looking for beach wedding inspiration, where better to look than the beaches of Mexico? Barb Simkova for Tara McMullen Photography, Canteiro, and The Eventeur Inc. put together this stylish shoot that’s everything a beach wedding should be — relaxed yet sophisticated, casual but still with a pinch of glam.

From the photographer, Barb Simkova for Tara McMullen Photography: It’s almost too easy to miss the turn off from the highway, and when you do find it driving down the winding jungle road to Belha Villa feels like you are leaving civilization. Belha has been a private villa for years, owned by Sofia Moreno, daughter to Carlos Moreno and has just recently opened to the public as an event and rental space. The glowing white villa designed in Costa Careyes style sits in front of a private white sand beach still largely owned by the fisherman who were the first to build their homes there. In every sense of the word Belha is a retreat, where one is surrounded by beautiful shells and corals found from the beach nearby and feels at ease in the minimal yet cozy decor.

Keeping in mind the relaxed yet stylish ambiance of the villa we wanted to reflect those elements in our shoot: a barefoot bride in a none traditional yet glamorous beaded gown, hair blowing in the wind, soft makeup. The decor chosen was meant to feel luxurious yet reflect the elements of the surroundings with soft colours and natural materials.

Romantic Wedding at Spruce Mountain Ranch

Romantic Weddings

If there’s a team that knows how to throw one elegant affair, it’s Cassidy Brooke, Pink Diamond Events, and Garden Path. Katie and Markus’ wedding in Colorado is full of a variety of details we love, from the window pane ceremony backdrop to the cupcake dessert table. Really, strawberry cheesecake cupcakes — how could we resist?!

From the bride, Katie: Markus and I met my freshmen year in college at Colorado State University after my sister and brother in law introduced us the first week of class. With mutual friends and a love for swing dancing we got to know each other better throughout that year. Then the following summer, Markus and I both went on a mission trip to South Africa and the rest is history. Two years later he proposed to me on the same campus where we met and so our life together began.

The inspiration for our wedding was “rustic romance with a hint of vintage” and we wanted a venue that could capture it all. Spruce Mountain Ranch became the perfect setting. The cattle ranch provided rustic wood buildings nestled alongside lush greenery perfect for pictures and a romantic ceremony. My love for thrifting quickly became the “hint of vintage” as antique windows hanging from a willow tree became the backdrop for our ceremony and antique centerpieces made up of vases, trinkets, lace, pearls, books, and pictures frames created the vintage feel.

Our biggest DIY project was definitely the centerpieces. Each of the twenty tables had different centerpieces of items that my mom and I found at various thrift stores in our hometown. Everything from cigar boxes, books, crates, and jewelry boxes held the vases with hydrangeas, ranunculus, garden roses, and baby’s breath. I love that no centerpiece was the same and my mom and I had a lot of fun rearranging all of the different elements! My sister (and matron of honor) was also a huge help in creating all of the table numbers and chalk signs with her hand lettering. We used picture frames and windows found at thrift stores, then backed them with chalkboard contact paper and used white chalkboard markers to do the lettering. Doing projects like these ourselves saved tons of money and added a personal touch.
