Bienvenidos a Montana
The start to Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish's four-day wedding weekend all began on Thursday, but the team arrived on Monday to prep, design, and create a party for every night. First up? A Mexican fiesta, a nod to Michael's heritage. From hand-painting wood-plank signage (left) to potting cacti, we offered the couple an authentic and playful welcome party.

Packing a Punch
Partygoers sipped on fresh juices and horchata, a traditional Mexican rice drink. (And our signs really lent the stand an authentic feel!)

Hand-crafted crepe paper flowers and gold-edged terracotta pots filled with succulents provided the bulk of the fiesta's décor.

The Host and Hostess
Kate (in a custom Proenza Schouler dress and Jimmy Choo heels) and Michael welcomed guests to the kick-off event. "From then on, I don't think anyone stopped smiling," Michael says.
