Styling: Make it Simple but Significant

Wedding styling need not be a daunting or expensive task. Sourcing a venue which does the bulk of the work for you is a true blessing and one that works especially well for destination weddings. 

This historical Hacienda on the lush grounds of Hacienda Sac Chich, Casa de Maquinas in Mexico is one such example. With its rich history worn on its limestone facade and with the more predictable weather of Mexico over the ever-changing climate of New Zealand, we can just imagine a stunning evening wedding on these grounds - soft uplights under the archways with perhaps some latte-toned chiffon draping only just peeking out from behind, floating candles and a light dusting of white avalanche rose petals among the lilypads in the ponds with luminaries creating striking luminescent patterns on the grass and marking pathways to small white raj tents housing perhaps a bar and daybeds for leisurely guest refreshments -  and inside, white tablecloths adorned with simple greenery garland runners with votive candles flickering among the foliage to round out the perfect summer evening celebration. 

While weddings have garnered the reputation of necessitating dramatic styling (which of course we love and relish the opportunity to create), sometimes, it's the simplest decor additions in an already striking venue that truly make the romantic atmosphere of such an already dramatic celebration.
