A stylish event begins long before the guests arrive. It begins with masterful planning.


Creativity thrives with collaboration
The joining of minds to forge something real.

Your Planner


The ambidextrous Capricorn (aka Courtney).

Things I LOVE: an old-school planner, baskets, yellow gold, cold Sauvignon 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.


What I Do

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 surprises 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.

When we decided to have our wedding in Sayulita, we knew we needed to hire a local coordinator to get the job done right, and to actually enjoy our time with family and friends the week of the wedding. After chatting with Courtney, we knew she would be the perfect person to work because she is organized, responsive, and she has invaluable relationships with many of the local businesses in the area. Over the next year she helped us work through all the decisions on venue, vendors, locations, design, and everything else to set the wedding of our dreams. Always calm and a clear communicator, she provided great options to choose from when we bounced ideas off her. She was always willing to help us find ways to execute our ideas – even when we changed our minds or plans had to change. With the detailed spreadsheets she maintained, we always knew where things stood and could easily iron out the details. We only visited Sayulita once before our wedding, and during that visit Courtney took the time to show us around and coordinated and came to all the meetings with the vendors. We knew after that trip that Courtney truly loves what she does and we were in the best of hands. As the wedding day drew near, Courtney made sure that all the outstanding decisions and payments to vendors were made and on schedule. The week of the wedding not only was she finalizing all the design elements, which included her beautiful handmade signs, she was delivering welcome bags to our guests, which they all loved and commented on! On the day of, Courtney kept in contact as we were getting ready making sure every detail was what we envisioned while she coordinated with all the vendors. Courtney and her team went above and beyond in so many ways to execute all of the elements of our wedding. Courtney’s a great choice to help you plan one of the biggest days of your life!

I was referred to the wonderful Courtney through a close friend that works for her, Amy! I am so thankful for that referral because I don't know what I would've done without her. I could trust her. I could be honest with her. She helped me problem solve. Helped me calm down. We emailed and facetimed for over a year and I always was able to count on her! She made my wedding vision come to life and then some! Every detail was perfect. She ever surprised me with decorations and details! You never know what you're going to get with a destination wedding and I truly got blessed by her! She's a down to earth woman, super fun, super talented at what she does. She helps plan all of your craziness for this day you want to be PERFECT and then helps it run SO SMOOTHLY on top of all of that! She truly wants your day to be your own and to be magical. She achieved that for our wedding and we are so grateful to her! She's amazing! I could go on and on. All i'm saying, if you're reading this, don't search any further. She is the best and has the best vendors ready and willing to help make your day just what you'd hope! She goes above and beyond!

Courtney is the best! Hiring her was definitely the best decision we made when planning our wedding. We honestly couldn't have done it without her! She has naturally great style and taste and I felt like I could really trust her because of her eye for design. That I feel like you naturally have or you don't, and she definitely has it! She recommended amazing vendors and I couldn't be happier with the end result. Once I arrived in Mexico I promised myself I would let go and trust that Courtney had everything under control. I didn't have to do one thing once I arrived, and she had everything completely taken care of. She exceeded all of my expectations. The wedding was even more than I ever could have imagined. The only way that I can describe it was perfect, straight out of a dream, simply the best day of my life.
