A Cabo Wedding Designed for the Modern Bride

From The Bride...“Why Mexico?” everyone asked. “Why not?!” I said with a big smile. Douglas is Swedish, I’m from Chicago and we have family and friends spread over 17 countries. We loved the idea of all our friends and family being in the same country (let alone the same hotel) for five days to celebrate with us. And the added bonus of sun and sand for the albeit beautiful but rather pale Swedes made for an easy decision.

We began the festivities on Wednesday evening with a fabulous salsa beach party and ended with a barely able to stand Sunday brunch. It was important to us that everyone have the holiday of a lifetime, endless margaritas, late night tacos, sketchy “high-school spring-break” clubbing, and epic salsa dancing from my mother made the weekend just that – absolutely unforgettable.

Our wedding had a neutral palette with a European vibe and was held at The Resort at Pedregal with the reception held at a private villa in the cliffs of Pedregal. The day was everything we could have hoped for - surrounded by family and friends in a gorgeous place to exchange our vows and celebrate our marriage.

From Elena Damy Destination Weddings... As you can see from the breathtaking photos from Ashley Bosnick, Nina and Douglas’ wedding was the perfect blend of European elegance and modern Mexico. The bride and groom worked closely with our wedding planner, Claudia Morales, to carefully plan each aspect of the wedding weekend.

When it came time to create the event design, Elena Damy, our Creative Director and Lead Floral Designer, was inspired by the couple’s worldly, sophisticated style and playful, down-to-earth charm. Without a doubt, it was easy to bring their graceful tone into the already warm, rustic refinement of Pedregal. For the ceremony, Elena designed a natural wooden structure with an abstract display of cream and white flowers blended with twirling vines and greens. Lining the aisle were tall contemporary glass hurricanes, each holding a single open rose.

The bride’s bouquet mirrored the ceremony flowers, with open garden roses mixed with organic greens loosely cascading for a natural Baja feel. For the reception at Casa Turquesa, Elena layered classic table settings with neutral linens, natural woods, weathered metallic candles, and low, lush flowers for an intimate, family dinner. Subtle wooden Bride and Groom signs were hung on the back of the bride and groom’s chairs, and loosely strung flowers, crystal drops and organic vines hung from the chandeliers overhead.

Nina changed into another gorgeous wedding gown for their cake cutting and dancing into the wee hours! Bright, rich reds and sexy dance tunes put the finishing touches on Nina and Douglas’ amazing wedding weekend!
