Dreaming of: Yelapa, Mexico

Yelapa, Mexico

Yelapa, Mexico

Loving these gorgeous photos of Yelapa, Mexico by talented, Mexico-based photographer, Jillian Mitchell.  These are from a wedding she photographed last fall and I’ve been obsessed since stumbling upon them.  Yelapa is a tiny, remote fishing village just 20 miles south of Puerto Vallarta.  Located in a small, mountainous inlet, the village has no roads, no cars and is most easily accessed by a 45 minute boat ride.  Though it may not have the best beaches in Mexico, the mountains cascading down to the water front make for a beautiful view and much of the charm comes from its remoteness.  This is likely what initially drew the likes of Bob Dylan and Dennis Hopper to its rocky shores and secluded villas.  The wedding took place at Verana, a gorgeous boutique hotel perched up in the hills overlooking the sea.

If you enjoy the photography, be sure to check out Jillian’s tumblr as well.
