Organic Northwest Ceremony at Discovery Park & Destination Reception in Mexico
Steve and Lacey chose to say "I do" in Discovery Park before they flew off to Mexico for the official celebration, and we're so glad they did because that gives us full permission to publish their big day on our site (plus a little peek at their Mexican fiesta, because it was just WAY too pretty to pass up). Honestly, their backyard celebration was stunning enough with its casual Northwest vibe and the couple's stylish ceremony attire. Throw in a cute little dog in a plaid bow tie and those beautiful Discovery Park views and we.are.sold. Although, if you were to ask us which we'd rather attend, Mexico does seem awfully enticing...
From Megan with Clutch Events:
"When you get engaged one of the first things you decide is where to get married. For many couples you have to think about what state, city or venue to chose from. In the case of my dear friends, Lacey & Steve, they decided to have a destination wedding in Mexico.
Once you decide to have a destination wedding in a foreign country you have to think through the legality of being married in the states. For us Americans, one option is to go to the courthouse and get married by the judge either before or after your wedding abroad. A second option is to have a second party!! And really, why not!? I mean, what is better than one celebration? Two celebrations!!
To make it legal so to speak, Lacey & Steve threw a "pop up" ceremony in Discovery Park and then had a casual, backyard bash. It was perfect! It was fun, intimate and involved so many close friends and family."
From the bride:
"Steve and I chose to have a destination wedding because we love to travel and wanted our special day to reflect that. Azul Fives in Riviera Maya, Mexico was a perfect location, with it's sandy beaches, numerous pools, bungalow style accommodations, and a boutique feel. Everyone that traveled for the wedding was able to stay on site, making it a more intimate affair. It was so amazing to have so many of the people we love and cherish able to get to know each other and share our wedding day with us."
