We’re so excited to see the first peek at Kelsea and Morgan’s wedding in People Magazine! It just happened this past weekend, right here at Esperanza Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico! We were honored to provide floral and event design for the happy couple and can’t wait to share more photos as soon as we get them…
“When Morgan Evans and Kelsea Ballerini were pronounced husband and wife on Dec. 2 on the beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, the young newlyweds and their 100 guests toasted with a tequila shot. “It’s a little bit different,” the country princess, 24, tells PEOPLE, “but that’s how we started.”
Indeed, Ballerini and her fellow country crooner Evans, 32, met in March 2016 when they cohosted an award show in his native Australia, and sparks flew instantly at the afterparty.
“He was like, ‘Let’s take a shot,’” the “Legends” singer recalls. “I remember taking that shot and putting it down and looking at him like, ‘Oh…he’s superhot.’ Later that night he leaned over and asked if he could kiss me, like a proper gentleman, and I said yes.”
Twenty-one months later, that yes turned into “I do” at their intimate, oceanside wedding. And the happy couple shared all the exclusive photos and details from their big day — dubbed the “Happily Evans After” wedding — with PEOPLE.
For her beach wedding, Ballerini wanted a classic, simple, timeless ambiance.
Walking down the aisle at the Esperanza luxury resort, the barefoot bride stunned in a flowing Berta gown, complete with a lace bodice and high slit. Her bridesmaids and Mom of Honor — Carla Denham — wore assorted pastel dresses by Monique Lhuillier from Vow To Be Chic and accessorized with David Yurman rings and earrings. The groom, his groomsmen and his best man (brother Tom Evans) rocked tan suits from Joseph Abboud.
To plan their wedding, Ballerini turned to Nashville-based planner Jayne Bubis Events (she also handled Carrie Underwood‘s 2010 fête). Floral and event design was by Elena Damy.
“We’re not ‘wedding people,’” says Ballerini. “It’s more being married that we’re stoked about.”
And so the details the bride and groom did spent their time focusing on were personal ones — like the “tequila theme” and their handwritten vows.
“Kelsea’s vows were, as you would expect, poetic, sweet — like, mindblowingly good. our officiant was like, ‘Hey, Morgan, beat that!’” says Evans. “I said mine, and I was going to finish with a few lines of the first song I wrote for her [‘Dance with Me’]. I got halfway through them, and she started to lose it, then I started to lose it — so I ended up having to cut it a little bit short!”
