Why Get married in Sayulita?
Sayulita is a small beach town that is just big enough to have some amazing food and drink options, but small enough to give you that small surf town feel.
The weather is phenomenal. We were there in January and were able to comfortably swim in the pool.
The beach is beautiful. There are a few small beaches within walking or hiking distance if you want to be even more remote.
The food is phenomenal. From had-made tacos to hand-tossed pizzas you’ll find it all here. Not to mention, there are some of the best margaritas I’ve ever had. I chose Mescal over tequila most of the time.
This is the perfect winter escape and a good way to avoid crowds on vacation.
How to get married in Sayulita
The short answer. Contact Abby at AE Creative and she”ll help you plan the perfect wedding week in Sayulita.
The long answer. If your wedding is small start checking out Airbnbs near town. I would stay within 1.5 kilometers of the town center. A good reference point is my favorite breakfast stop and coffee shop Miscelanea Sayulita. Once you’ve booked an Airbnb you can most likely check with your host for a chef. Depending on where you book your stay, you might also consider renting a golf cart to get up and down the hills.
Below is a full vendor list from Abby and Phil’s wedding that should help fast-track you.
Abby and Phil’s January Wedding
Abby and Phil were married in January and we hit about 85f/29C degrees on their wedding day. It was a bit warm for a hike but it made for an amazing rooftop reception.
Day One: Exploring Sayulita
This town is vibrant in color and culture. Everywhere I pointed my camera was another beautiful photo. My wife and I showed up a couple of days early to explore and get to know the area. The perfect little beach you see in the first image is a smaller beach a short hike north of town. Beach Location Link
Abby and Phil rented two out of three houses on Girngo Hill, which is about an 8-minute walk from the town center. These two houses are connected via a gate they were absolutely stunning. They were made up of 6 bedrooms. Each bedroom was unique and amazing. There were two swimming pools and one rooftop hot tub. There were two kitchens and a rooftop lounge that overlooked all of Sayulita.
The first Dinner
Abby and Phil hired two wonder women to prepare dinner and margaritas for us. This was certainly a meal to remember.
Phil and his brothers went on a fishing trip and brought back dinner. Nikol from Foxtail Bake Shop prepared an amazing dinner. I was lucky enough to watch her cook and help out a little.
Abby hired a random musician that we met in the square to play a little for Phil’s Birthday party. He was great.
The Wedding Day
Their wedding day started off with a beautiful sunrise and coffee on the top deck. Followed by an amazing brunch made by Nickol. They also had someone bring over some fresh coconuts.
There was no oven on sight so Nickol improvised and made her famous croissants on the BBQ.
After they were looking good and ready to get married we wandered the streets of Sayulita for portraits. this city is stunning.
And then we all headed on a little adventure to the smaller beach north of Sayulita. It’s about a 30-minute hike and you make your way through a little bit of jungle.
Once we broke through the palm trees we found the perfect ceremony site.
Olivia De La Cruz provided music for the ceremony. And Marissa was the cutest little wedding crasher.
We were here just before sunset and we had the beach pretty much to ourselves. It was stunning.
Abby and Phill have a Pug at home so it was fitting that they hired Pug Band @pugband to play at their wedding. They finished their day celebrating on the rooftop late into the night.
