Pastel Mexican Wedding at La Quinta Inn with Alchemy Fine Events on 100 Layer Cake

June 5, 2013

We admit, pastels are not the first thing we think of when visioning a Mexican inspired wedding! But this real wedding from Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations featured on 100 Layer Cake is everything soft and sweet we want from a wedding but with plenty of Mexican flair!

The couple Melissa and Scott made their wedding a family affair, including their two gorgeous children and darling french bull dog (aptly named Cabo where the couple first met). The La Quinta Resort provided the perfect backdrop for their Mexican themed I do’s and Justin Lee captured all of the details beautifully in his images.



The Alchemy team created these amazing escort cards made of saltillo tiles with calligraphy presented onto standing frames lined with burlap and lace!

Melissa’s bridal bouquet recipe: succulents, coral pastel garden and fitness roses, ranunculus, berries, and poppies.

From Alchemy Events….With a more modern and updated pastel take on the classical Mexican styled wedding, we created an intimate boda not soon to be forgotten! This bespoke wedding was full of custom designs we created for the special couple including custom burlap and lace linens, throw pillows, custom furniture, drink umbrellas and laser cut menus just to name a few. Luna of Arrangements is a floral genius and created the most beautiful soft palette of  peaches and dusty sages with romantic blooms and succulents such as this to die for above.

One of the couple’s favorite memories was seeing their two children walk down the aisle and share in that moment with them.

More from Alchemy ….With a softer pastel hued tone to romanticize it, we created a warm and welcoming fiesta for this couple, their friends and family to celebrate their love and family they had already created together.

The custom burlap table runners were lined with Spanish lace and topped with hurricanes full of pebbles with succulents, cacti and soft-hued blooms perfect for a pastel Mexican wedding. Laser cut menus on wood grained papers were featured on the place settings to tempt guests as the delights to come! Their dessert table was filled with colorful pan dulce, margarita cupcakes, caramel horchata flan, chipotle spiced chocolate mousse… delish.
