This Sayulita wedding will give you all the feelings
When Meghan Seltenreich, a 28-year old publicist, and Cousy Arenado, a 29-year old business manage, met through mutual friends in California, the attraction was instant, and it eventually led to a pristine Sayulita Wedding.
“We disagree on who hit on who first,” Meghan told BridalPulse. “But either way, the feeling was mutual.”
The rest is history, as people say, and Cousy managed to use just about all the people in Meghan’s life in the Laguna Beach proposal, where her best friend and brother were integral parts of the oceanfront knee drop. The beachside, nature-loving feelings didn’t end at the proposal, because the couple decided a Mexican waterfront wedding would be the best possible way to tie the knot.
“We knew we wanted to do a destination wedding, and Mexico seemed like the closest choice for the majority of our friends and family in California. Sayulita itself seemed to encompass everything Cousy and I love: surfing, the ocean, art, dogs — there are SO many cute dogs in Sayulita — and food,” Meghan shared. “The Venue itself, Brisa Mar Palapa, was chosen due to the incredible view, the size of our wedding, and we were told if we wanted our wedding to be a ‘party’ this would be the right spot. They were right!”
The bride chose a dress by Christos Costarellos for the Sayulita Wedding
that she chose from Loho Bride. “It was so lightweight which felt perfect for the warm weather, and I loved how the light fabric flowed in the breeze.” Her second slipdress was by Amanda Uprichard from Revolve. The couple’s rings were made by a family friend and jeweler.
“The reception was exactly 100 people. For the food, we wanted to stick to traditional Mexican flavors. The first course was a choice between a take on classic tortilla soup or an avocado soup with shrimp. The second course was a choice between Veracruz style fresh fish or Sonoran filet mignon. Neither of us are fans of cake, so we did a fresh churro stand for dessert. The wedding went ’til midnight, so we also had a late-night taco stand.”
The couple made sure to incorporate modern touches on their old family traditions, too — including wedding music. “Cousy’s family is Cuban so we wanted there to be a nod to his Cuban culture. The dance was a surprise to everyone, and we had been practicing for months with a family friend who is an amazing salsa dancer. Our friends and family were in shock, and it got everyone super pumped up to get the dance party started! After that, everyone was on the dance floor.”
