Sunset Soiree in Sayulita Mexico

Sunset Soiree Wedding Services in Sayulita

Highlights
Full service wedding and event planner
I take care of every detail so you never have to worry or stress
Creating your dream wedding or event is my passion

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.

Services Provided:

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!!

The Wedding Savior
My husband and I just cannot recommend Courtney enough. We had a fairly long engagement (about 1.5 yrs) and initially had hired a different local wedding planner. To say that person was a poor communicator is the understatement of the year. We were constantly not receiving responses for weeks (literally almost a month one time), and it was just an endless frustrating string of excuses. It made me feel like i'd gone insane and it stole every ounce of joy from our wedding planning process. After expressing even the slightest frustration about the situation to my stylist, she referred me to Courtney about 8 months prior to the wedding.

To all brides out there wondering "Am I being a bridezilla and having wildly unrealistic expectations of how my wedding planner should be working with me?".....from my experience, going from what we had to Courtney.....It was like turning on a light in a dark house. We received timely responses with complete and honest/realistic answers to our questions. She respected our budget and made recommendations for our wedding cake vendor, florist, someone to hire for late night churros as a wedding treat, and a fantastic DJ. Bottom line, she was THERE. She was there for us and made us feel like our wedding was as important to her as it was to us. Courtney was holding on the spinning plates in the air, looking ridiculously fabulous and glam while she did it, and was never going to let our wedding be a loser! She went above and beyond setting up bright, colorful decor for our rehearsal dinner which I actually wasn't even expecting, and then our wedding day was so smooth, I literally never had even a second of anxiety on the day-of (nobody was more surprised by this than me, i can assure you), and that was priceless. All of her vendors were on time, did beautiful work, and the finished product was like something from a dream and we could not believe we got to call it ours. She saved our wedding. We will be eternally grateful for her caring and fun spirit, and the true joy with which she does her work. It shows in every detail. We walked away feeling like we'd made a friend, and I know if we are ever back in Sayulita we will pick up the phone to see her.

Couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner!!
Courtney and her team at Sunset Soiree are truly amazing!! Planning a wedding in another country can feel a bit daunting - Courtney made the process feel so seamless and stress-free. She handled EVERYTHING, recommended amazing vendors, and executed flawlessly.

I didn't have many idea's of what I was looking for in regards to style and design. Courtney ran with the limited idea's I did have & I couldn't have dreamed up a more perfect night if I tried. She has an amazing eye for design and created the perfect night for us!

It really was the most fun party ever - all 110 of our guests could not stop raving about how much fun they had! It's been almost a month and people are still telling us that. :-) What a great feeling and it's all thanks to Courtney!! We wish we could do it over and over again and wouldn't hire anyone else!!

On top of that, Courtney is just a wonderful person and we feel like we have a new friend in her! If you need to plan a wedding or event in the Sayulita area - Courtney is your girl!! You will not be disappointed.

Courtney and her crew are fantastic!
Courtney helped us plan a very small and intimate wedding in a very short amount of time. We had never been to the area before and she helped with every little detail. Everyone that she recommended and we hired were top notch professionals! We could not have had the picture perfect wedding we had been imagining without her, thank you Courtney!

Absolutely Perfect
Courtney is truly fantastic at what she does, and I will always carry so much joy for my wedding day because she made it so PERFECT. We cannot praise Courtney enough!! We are so glad that we had her plan our wedding.

She created our vision that we had for our wedding exactly as we dreamed it would be, and she did so with a sincere care and professional calm that was exactly what we hoped for and beyond.

She was very easy to work with, and will work so hard to get you what you want. Our wedding was at Villa Valentin, in Sayulita and were told that after 80+ weddings at that venue, ours was the smoothest and flawlessly ran wedding the manager had ever seen!!

That's everything that you want for your wedding, and we felt that flawless joy on our day.

We had 70 people at our wedding, and we had our ceremony & reception held at the house we rented. It was so much fun, so beautiful, and the caters, DJ, photographer, videographer, everyone was on time, and incredibly professional. Our guests still comment on how good the food was, and how fun our piñata cake was! We had some eclectic requests that Courtney made a reality without any stress.

I highly recommend that you hire Courtney to help you make your wedding day the day you've always dreamed of. She will make it come to life.

From the beautiful napkins, to the tequila shot I demanded in a rush of nervousness right before walking down the aisle, she was always on point with everything.

Thank you again, Courtney!! We love you and will always be thankful to you!!

Fantastic!
It was hard to think about planning my daughter's wedding in Mexico from the States. Courtney was the best. When we were nervous about getting things done, she always put our minds at ease and assured us it was all going to be great. And it was! The wedding was the most beautiful and fun wedding we have ever been to! Everything was beautiful and went off flawlessly. Courtney even added additional touches that we were not expecting and loved!
Thank you Courtney for making the wedding so memorable. We would not have changed one thing!!!!

Courtney with Sunset Soiree is the one you want!

This Crew Knows How to do WEDDINGS! Best night of my life!!
Where do I start? From initial contact via phone to the first meeting (two days before the wedding) our interactions were seamless and productive.

Planning a wedding from afar can seem daunting but when you hear Courtney on the other end of the line reassuring you that "it's covered, you will have so much fun". She was SO RIGHT (yes, I yelled that).

Courtney & Team coordinated all aspects of the wedding from the welcome dinner to showing around the out of town photogs to the day of the wedding venue & vendor management. I enjoyed my wedding day prepping myself for the festivities (Courtney & Team literally did everything) and watched as her crew unfolded the magical scene we discussed over email & Pinterest.

Honestly, that evening was the most fun I have ever had at any party - ever... Delicious food, great music and she even arranged for my favorite beer to be served.

No stress, all fun and better than I could have dreamed.

Very personable and goes above and beyond!
Courtney was a pleasure to work with. She made arrangements on short notice with all the potential venues that were within our budget. My fiancee and I did not have a rental car and she drove us to all the potential venues, even one out of town to look at. I was so glad I looked at the venues in person vs just relying on pictures on line as I was able to troubleshoot and plan for my family traveling with children. She was very thoughtful and had me complete a thorough questionnaire before meeting with her. She asked us additional questions after our meeting and reviewed my pinterest board :) made me feel like she really wanted to collaborate and honor our wishes for our special day. She even recommended places for us to visit and eat during our visit in Sayulita. She is very personable and laid back and just a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend her and visiting venues and potential accommodations for guests prior to your wedding day if possible!

Above & Beyond at every turn!
We were married in Sayulita in May of 2017. Courtney came highly recommended by our photographer when I asked which wedding planners she loves to work with. We immediately hit it off with Courtney and knew she would take the best care of us throughout the 7 months leading up to our wedding! She exceeded our wildest dreams and put together THE MOST beautiful ceremony and reception I have ever seen. She incorporated personal details and touches for us in every nook and cranny and created incredible focus pieces throughout the venue. In the week leading up to the big day she met me wherever was convenient (Los Muertos or over margaritas!) and worked herself seamlessly into our vacation as to cause little to no stress . On the day of, her team blew us all away with their kind and attentive nature. I cannot recommend Courtney & the team at Sunset Soiree enough.

the BEST wedding planner!
Courtney was absolutely amazing. We trusted her with our big day and she over delivered in every way. She made all our dreams come true and was a blast work with on top of it! All our guests said they were amazed with everything and said it was the best wedding they had ever been too (no joke)!

Her vendor recommendations were spot on. I loved how she gave us choices for some things and just handled the rest. She eliminated all the guess work so it never got too overwhelming.
It allowed us to plan our wedding from a far. It was so stress-free, I was shocked!

Her design aesthetic is tasteful and creative. We agreed on a look/theme and she ran with it. Our jaws dropped when we saw the ceremony and wedding venue.

Lastly, she was honest about costs upfront, which helped us budget accordingly. In the end, we came under budget and were able to splurge on some amazing extras.

We consider Courtney one of our friends and can't wait to go back!

Amazing across the board!
I don't know how we could have pulled off such an amazing wedding in Sayulita without Courtney. From day one, Courtney had us covered. She answered my questions even before I could ask them, and had every detail covered (including ones we hadn't even thought of). She took our ideas for the wedding and executed perfectly - on the day of the event I couldn't have imagined how on-point the whole venue looked compared to what we had talked about in the months leading up to wedding. I still get compliments on how amazing the details were. She made sure we had everything we needed, allowing our families to relax the week leading up to the big day. Even when a few folks ended up getting a bug the day before the wedding, she was able to help us move schedules around to accommodate our party for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. I would recommend Courtney over and over again.
