Sunset Soiree in Sayulita, making all your event 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 : a 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 Left Handed Capricorn (aka Courtney).

I have a fine eye for detail - sometimes it’s the little things you never thought of that make you and your guests feel at home and safe. I’m creative and artistic - I love taking a clients’ vision and making it a reality. I’m open to all types of design : Mexican fiestas, beachy, tropical, boho, modern, industrial. I love the challenge of bringing a vision to life. 

I’m spontaneous and quick on my feet and mind. S#!& happens and I pride myself in being able to react to situations when they arise in a calm, relaxed and clear headed manner. To make quick adjustments or changes when needed as life (and events) continue on. 

Those aspects and love for design is what makes me invaluable to my clients. With your guidance, I will create an event that represents you, your partner, your relationship and future together.


The 411 – If it’s possible for you to come to Sayulita prior to your wedding I will help you scout out the perfect venue to hold your event I will introduce you to the best caterers, florists, and photographers to name a few. You’ll get to know the vendors I trust and that will fit the style and budget of your wedding. You will be able to see first hand what Sayulita has to offer. If you cannot make it down before the big day, I will act as your eyes and ears, maintaining communication with you so you feel as comfortable as possible with the choices made in your absence.  

The Pretties – Through email, WhatsApp, phone calls, and Pinterest I will be able to understand your vision and bring it to life. With an eye for design and a knack for getting crafty, I’ll help you put together all design elements and visuals of the event: lighting, flowers, details and décor.

The Money – I will help determine an accurate and realistic budget based on your needs and wants. If you can’t make payments to vendors from abroad,  I will take control of them and will keep you up to speed throughout the entire process. 

The Puppet Master – I will take care of the execution of your event and be here every step of the way. You are choosing a destination wedding to spend time with friends and family in a beautiful beach setting, not to set up the chairs on your wedding day. I’ve got it covered so you can relax and enjoy the moment. I will be on-site coordinating and managing all aspects of the event; from set up, vendor deliveries, organization of events, cues, logistics, and break down.


All events are different - clients, visions, budget, and expectations. But one thing is the same, a well orchestrated event that flows smoothly and is FUN!

My services are as individual as you are. From casual birthday parties, intimate proposals, film productions, and weddings.  No event is too large or small! I love all aspects of the planning process and take pride in producing flawless events. 

Let the planning begin!

Hello, my name is Jessica, and I am a neurotic planner and organizer. Planning a wedding in Mexico, where I couldn't be there to do everything myself, was torture! Haha! But that's where Courtney comes in. She handled my craziness and executed the most beautiful and wonderful wedding weekend - yes, we had a couple of events because one wasn't enough - I could have ever imagined. All of our guests were in awe of how everything came together and how beautiful it was. They're still talking about how it was the best wedding they've ever been to and how the churros were to die for. I can't thank her enough for the memories she's given us. Everyone says you feel kind of sad when the wedding planning is over but I'm most sad I don't have a reason to talk to Courtney allllll of the time. She's family now! Always in our hearts - can't wait to see her again! Peace & Love!

She’s a MASTER!!
From the moment we met Courtney, I knew she was our girl. Honestly, I knew before we even met her because I’ve followed her for a couple of years on IG, but I had to humor my husband by letting him meet her. She immediately made us feel like we knew each other for years She was amazing and super helpful even BEFORE we contracted her to be our planner. We had come to town for some early wedding planning/scouting and decided to also squeeze our engagement pics into that trip and she helped me secure a HMUA last minute. We had a few life events push the planned date for our wedding back a couple of times and Courtney couldn’t have been more understanding, kind & patient about it all! She provided all the details, options, price points and images throughout the process to keep me updated. She also kept everything below budget (huge plus for my hubs)! We had a welcome party and the wedding itself during our wedding week and Courtney designed, planned and executed the most beautiful setup and events for us! Everything was even better than I imagined and we got so many compliments from friends and family that it was the best wedding week they’d been a part of and not a single detail was missed. That was all thanks to Courtney and her fabulous team! We even had to make a few unexpected last minute changes with guests and seating charts and Courtney handled it all without skipping a beat. She’s an absolute master and so talented in all that she does! Do yourself a favor and hire her immediately, you won’t regret it!

The most important piece to the puzzle!
I wish Courtney was local to me so she could plan all my future events! Traveling is stressful on its own but even more so when trying to plan an event in a place you’re unfamiliar with. Courtney had recommendations for every vendor we needed and each one exceeded expectations. She kept me in check for deadlines, handled payments to various vendors, and was extremely organized and detailed. Working with Courtney feels like working with one of your friends as she’s so personable and genuinely excited to bring your vision to life. I would love to work with Courtney and her team again! Highly recommend.

Wedding to never forget
I was a guest at my brother's wedding in Sayulita and the crew of Sunset Soiree blew our socks off. The personalized papel picado, late night churro maker who infused Filpino flavors like jackfruit and bananas, the mariachi, to the beautiful ratan decor that reminded me of our homeland, the Philippines. Courtney made it extra special by hand-picking alebrijes for my children as a place marker for their seats. She guided us through the rehearsal and was there to guide us through for the actual event. Lots of street cred to Courtney and the Sunset Soiree crew!. Our family and friends that did not make definitely had a case of FOMO.

Simply the best!
Courtney possesses all of the traits and assets needed to be the perfect events and wedding planner. She is warm, positive, organized, experienced, well-connected, communicative, creative, and most important of all, brings her joy and passion for what she does to all of her projects which is reflected in the experiences of both her teammates and event guests. She was terrific to work with for our authentic welcome dinner on a ranch near Sayulita as well as our big wedding day in town and we'd gladly work with her again for any future events. If you're doing anything in Sayulita, small or large in scale, and need hands-on support for both planning and execution - look no further. Her and her A-team will breathe life into your vision.

Amazing Service!!!
I contacted a few wedding planners in Sayulita and Courtney was by far the easiest to connect with and the best value. I was looking to have an elopement… my husband and I just wanted to bring our kids to Sayulita and have a small ceremony on the property we were staying at along with flowers, a catered family dinner, and photos. Courtney NAILED IT! She understood my ideas, my budget, my timeline and she was timely with everything! The vendors she used were amazing and we LOVED every aspect of our wedding day! Seriously hire her - she is the best!
