We were thrilled when our friend Mishka from Mishka Designs introduced us to Alyson and Chris. Mishka planned Alyson and Chris’ Mexican themed wedding in Sayulita, Nayarit and hired us to cater the celebration. Mishka creates a custom design for each couple she works with so we are always excited to see the designs that she has been working on. Alyson and Chris’ wedding ceremony and reception took place at a private venue overlooking the town of Sayulita with 360 degree views of the ocean and jungle. Included in Mishka’s design were a fun ceremony arch with colorful handmade paper flowers, “papel picado” chandeliers, a live donkey to escort the couple into cocktail hour and a tiny animal holding each and every escort card. The couple chose a menu to go with their wedding theme including cocktail hour hors d’oeuvres, three course dinner and gorgeous cake for dessert.
