Plan a Wedding
Sunset Soiree in Sayulita, making your wedding dreams happen. Let me start by saying 'felicidades'!! Whether you're getting engaged, married or just throwing a party, Sayulita is the perfect backdrop for your event.
Sayulita (pronounced, sah-you-lita): small Mexican pueblo on the Pacfic Coast influenced by surf/SUP, fishing, yoga, color, healthy lifestyle, outdoor living, fresh food & beverages, and walking around barefoot. Because of its' diverse ex-pat population, you and your family/friends will experience cultures from all around the globe. Sayulita's casual, boho, and laid back vibe continue to bring vistors in droves.
Meet: The ambidrextrous Capricorn (aka Courtney).
Things I LOVE: an old-school planner, baskets, yellow gold, cold Sauvingnon Blanc, the color turquoise, Maybelline Great Lash (in the pink tube), dogs, making lists on paper so there's satisfaction when I cross something off, my husband Storm, avocados, salty wavy hair, sunshine, gold Havianas, comfortable clothes that I can wear for a night out and then also to bed.
Sunset Soirée started informally in 2012 planning my own wedding here in Sayulita. After I got married, I casually started helping friends' who sought creative input and support with the logistics of their weddings down here and boom! One thing lead to another...
My love for design (renovating a hotel and a house here in Sayulita) coupled with the practical side of planning has given me a well-rounded approach to coordinating weddings and events. My fluency in Spanish and personal relationships with the local vendors proves invaluable when planning your most important event. I'm also laid back & easy going. I aim to keep the stress of planning an event from a far at a minimum. Everything about your event should be FUN! not stressful. I’m meticulously organized, creative, and book a limited number of events per year to ensure each event gets the attention it deserves.
These aspects are some of what makes me invaluable to my clients. With your guidance, we will create an event that goes as planned with grace and perfection.
The Scoop – Helping you with everything you need to know about Sayulita on fact-finding trip here prior to the big day. If you cannot make it down before, we can still make it work!! I'll help you with venues, vendors, and the extras you didn't know were options.
Event Design – Taking your vision, making it come to reality....and then some! My eye for design and knack for getting crafty will help pull together all design elements and visuals of the event: lighting, flowers, details and décor. There won't be a stone unturned and I might even throw a few surprizes in there!
Budgeting – Determining an accurate budget based on your needs/wants, scheduling of deposits and vendor payments, and keeping you up to speed throughout the entire process. Honesty is the best policy, especially when planning from over 1500 miles away.
Puppet Master – On-site coordination and management of all aspects of the event; from set up, vendor deliveries, organization of events, cues, logistics, fun! & breakdown.
For Hire -
Sunset Soirée is an all inclusive wedding and event planning service. Meaning I help most clients from start to finish. However, I’m flexible, and all events are different. Maybe you only need help planning a welcome party. Maybe you're after personalized place settings. Maybe you just need a few consultations. I can be involved as much as you want – no matter what your style, event, or budget. My services are as individual as you are!!
Additional Events Include: birthdays, family reunions, fundraisers, proposals, anniversaries, baby showers, catered parties and more!!

Hola! My husband and I moved to Sayulita in January 2009. We've done a few different things while here job wise to get us where we are today. Wedding planner and bar owner!! We welcomed our daughter Rebel into the mix and she is living up to her name (in a good way)! We enjoy sunsets on the beach almost every night with a cocktail in hand! Cheers.
