Vida Bonita Wedding and Event Planning

I've been coming to Sayulita for the past few years. When my husband and I decided to get married, Sayulita was an easy choice.  I asked for referrals for coordinators in the area and heard several, "no's" before one coordinator said, "I can't, but I would recommend Somer from Vida Bonita Events". Somer was easy to work with from afar, she was organized, she made it easy for me to make decisions, and she was responsive. I was already happy with her services before we met her but let me tell you, to meet Somer, is to fall in love with her. Her presence at my wedding was an absolute God send and I will forever remember the thoughtful small things she did for my family, my guests, and myself. Somer is calm. Period. She has incredible poise and relying on her cool demeanor during an event that (at the very least) has some nervous energy around it, was a gift. 
 

We actually ended up doing 3 events with Somer: a "Welcome Dinner" for our guests, the wedding, and a brunch to follow. The food was delicious at each event, the music was perfect, our pictures turned out amazing, and the floral arrangements from FlorMimo were so simple and brilliant. Everyone who worked with Somer was also clearly happy to be doing business with her. When Rebecca showed up to do my makeup (owner of Bliss Spa in Sayulita-awesome, awesome, rad woman), I felt like I was hanging with my friends getting ready (even though it was really just Somer, Rebecca, my mom, and I). I am so grateful that her name was passed on to me! And more importantly, Somer was incredibly flexible with our budget. If I ever said, "yeah, I just don't feel like spending money on ____", Somer always had a "no problem" attitude and would remind me, "we can do whatever you want". I didn't have a huge vision for my wedding. In fact, the task seemed kind of boring, tedious, and more than I wanted to get into. For a bride like me, Somer was such a dream because she provided a ton of inspiration and pictures of examples (i.e. place settings, etc.) for me to see so I could decide which I liked the look of best. I can't say enough good about Vida Bonita. I didn't know that planning a wedding (and it's execution!) could be an enjoyable process, so for me, my socks were knocked off by how pleasant and fun Somer and Billy made everything surrounding these events. I would recommend Somer to friends, family, I will use her again for special events/dinner parties, and I can truly say that I've not worked with anyone quite as caring as Somer. Truly! I hope she loves what she does, because she makes it look really really good! — Lauren, San Francisco

A fabulous time had by all! 

We had our wedding in San Pancho right before New Years Eve. We were asking a number of our guests to leave their comfort zone (i.e. a resort) to coming to our wedding so that made us a bit anxious. From the first moment I spoke with Somer she made me feel at ease. Somer has great taste and had wonderful ideas (beach venue, floral and photographer recommendations, welcome party caterer, welcome bags, churro stand and mariachi band at the reception, hotel venue for guests etc., ) Somer and her husband Billy were also willing and able to help with last minute requests including renting a drone as well as finding a screen and a projector. All of our guests LOVED the charm of San Pancho and all the little details of the wedding. — Victoria (Canada)

More than happy, highly recommended! 

Looking for an exceptional wedding coordinator? Somer and Vida Bonita will not disappoint. I just recently got married in Sayulita and Somer coordinated everything for us. From the start Somer was professional , organized and lovely to work with! She is a super star at this job, paying great attention to the details during your special day. Everything flowed beautifully, we really appreciate all she did. The flowers and table setting was absolutely gorgeous during dinner. Thank you Somer! You're a natural at what you do - giving you a glowing review is the least we can do. —Alberta, Canada

Great wedding coordinator

As a wedding photographer in Sayulita,I can say it is always a pleasure to work with Somer. She is calm, organized and always friendly. Her weddings are so well coordinated that there is a total harmony between the bride and groom and their guests. They alway enjoy themselves and have the best day of their lives which translates very easily in their photos. If you want a fun, romantic and smooth wedding, you can't go wrong with Somer. — Pierre, Sayulita
