Back in March we had the pleasure of traveling to Mexico for the wedding of our good friends Nicole and Dan. Forty-five guests flew out, and we had an amazing time soaking up sunshine and good times with friends in tropical Playa del Carmen.
The weather was amazing (of course) and the setting couldn't have been more beautiful for such a lovely event. The ceremony itself took place in a gazebo overlooking the azure surf beyond, and the reception followed into the night in an amazing open-air, thatch-roofed patio.
The colours for the wedding were fresh green and bright pink, which complemented the tropical location beautifully. The bridesmaids wore green, and carried gorgeous bouquets of white and pink stargazer lilies.
We were thrilled when Nicole asked us to create some custom wedding cookie favours for her reception place settings.
In her wedding stationary, table numbers, and even shower invitations (created by another crafty friend) Nicole used an adorable, yet elegant pink starfish motif. We experimented with some different options, and Nicole settled on a white square cookie with a dotted edge, names in green to match the font on her invitations, and pink starfish to match her theme.
The cookies made it safely to Mexico and helped round out the table decor. We had a fabulous time (and maybe momentarily considered changing The Steveston Cookie Company to the Playa del Carmen Cookie Company) and wish our dear friends a lifetime of happiness... Congratulations Nicole and Dan!
