When you cross a sun-kissed Cabo affair with the happy, pink palette, you’re in for something really, really good. Think bright, peppy blooms and perfectly styled details all sweetly captured by miss Sara Richardson. It’s the perfect way to start your Friday, and you can find lots, lots more waiting right here!
From the Bride… Scott and I were introduced by my best friend from college when she was visiting me in Venice, CA. From the moment we met the sun and the beach have always played a big role in our lives as we spend our weekends riding bikes with friends, taking our dog on walks to watch the sunset, and planning our vacations around the best beaches in the world. It was no surprise that we took our first vacation as a couple to Cabo and have loved it ever since. When Scott proposed on a mountain (trying to change it up) in Costa Rica, we knew we had to get back to the beach for our wedding.
When we named our wedding website SunKissedLove, it was only a matter of time that we planned the theme of our wedding to match – a laid back beach wedding filled with sun and the love of our friends and family. The cobblestone streets of Cabo, the beautiful beaches and the something for everyone feel of Cabo was enough to convince us it was the place for us.
We did most of our planning via the internet, Pinterest and a weekend trip down to meet with vendors. We were referred to our awesome wedding planner, Amy Abbott through friends who had gotten married in Cabo and she showed us the Hacienda Cocina y Cantina, which we immediately fell in love with. Amy also found us our team of vendors including our amazing photographer Sara Richardson and our visonary florist Pina Hernandez. Its so important to have the right wedding planner who is patient and asks just the right questions to help you realize your vision.
Amy transformed the Hacienda into an amazing oasis, complete with white papel picados strung across the dance floor with a canopy of sparkling lights. The tables were adorned with mercury vases filled with peonies, flickering candles, and gold polka dotted napkins to wipe the crumbs of the homemade churros dipped in chocolate and carmel sauce. We created our own maracas favors, name tags, and custom burlap signs with the help of our bridal party and mothers in order to infuse some of our own style. The evening entertainment included a mariachi band at cocktails, followed by a cigar roller, camera booth and midnight popsicles for those needing a cool down from the all the dancing.
It was a magical evening that went off without a hitch and ended with us surrounded by the smiles of eighty of our closest friends and family enveloping us in a tunnel of sparklers!
