Intimate Destination Wedding at the Cabo Surf Hotel

This intimate celebration almost didn’t happen due to a hurricane only weeks before, but thanks to a talented team of vendors and friends and family, this couple pulled it off. Held at the gorgeous Cabo Surf Hotel, these two said “I do” among sandy shores and loved ones, soaking up every inch of beauty that Mexico has to offer, and Sara Richardson captured it all. Feel the sand on your toes right here.

From The Bride… San Jose del Cabo holds a special place in our hearts, so when Christian and I became engaged we immediately decided that we wanted to be married in San Jose del Cabo at the Cabo Surf Hotel.

Just weeks before our wedding, Hurricane Odile came ashore close to our wedding venue. We were deeply saddened to see the destruction Odile caused to the area, and to the lives of the people who live there. With heavy hearts, we canceled our October 11, 2014 wedding at the Cabo Surf Hotel because no airlines were flying into the area. This decision was especially difficult because Christian’s family had already traveled to the United States from Australia to attend our wedding, and would be unable to return for a later wedding date.

Then, days before October 11, 2014, it was announced that one flight a day would be flying to Los Cabos from Los Angeles. Christian and I quickly decided that we wanted to get both of our families on one of those flights, so we could get married at one of our favorite places in the world, surrounded by the most important people in our lives. Luckily, we were able to get plane tickets for everyone. I also called all of our vendors, and everyone was still able to be a part of our wedding.

When we arrived at the Cabo Surf Hotel, the staff graciously greeted us with margaritas and made us feel very welcome. Throughout our stay, Martha and the entire Hotel staff worked tirelessly to ensure that the Hotel would be beautiful for our wedding. And it was. Our wedding day was effortless. We began the day swimming in the ocean and relaxing by one of the Hotel’s swimming pools. Afterwards, Christian got ready with the boys – our son, Byron, and my step-son, Baden. And I got ready with my Mom.

Byron and Baden were our two best men, and all four of us walked down the aisle together as a family. We wrote our own vows, and our friend, Chris Johnson, officiated the wedding. The flowers designed by Pina Hernandez were beyond perfect. Adan Mijares sang and played the Mexican guitar beautifully. Martha Lomeli seamlessly organized the entire event. And our photographer, Sara, with her husband Ramon, captured the entire day in stunning photographs.

We ended our wedding day at a candlelit dinner table overlooking the ocean, laughing and enjoying time with our families. We could not have asked for a more special way to start our life together.

Romantic New Jersey Park Engagement Session

This love sesh from Judy Pak has just the right amount of sweetness and al fresco goodness rolled into one intimate gallery, and I can’t get enough. The Bride-to-be’s sparkly gem will have you gazing for hours and their sweet pup? Well, isn’t she just the cutest fluffy lady you ever did see? There’s more right here.

From the beautiful Bride… Our wedding is taking place this summer on a small island in the Mediterranean called Malta, in the 16th century Metropolitan Cathedral of St. Paul, Imdina. We knew from the start that we’ll be sending save the dates since most of our guests need to travel. The save the dates we wanted needed some really amazing photos and we thought if we are going to take the photos it might as well be our engagement season. The selection can get a bit overwhelming when you live in NYC but after looking at Judy’s blog we knew that she was the one for us. Her work just screams excellence and she definitely backs it up. Our e-session was simply breathtaking. This peaceful park in New Jersey was the perfect setting. An hour and a half session felt like 5 minutes. We felt very comfortable and Judy walked us through it very easily and made it fun. She was also very patient with our little dog, Havana.

Whimsical

From Isari Flower Studio + Event Design… Vista Valley Country Club was the perfect backdrop for this fun and innovative photo shoot designed and coordinated by White Lace Events & Design. Bringing together a true dream team of vendors the goal was to highlight upcoming trends for 2015 in an unconventional way. From a lace dessert teepee, to a dinner table in a more commonly used ceremony location, and a ceremony backdrop created of iron gates this shoot takes traditional wedding elements and adds an unexpected twist. Isari Flower Studio and Adore Folklore brought the scene to life with vibrant, lush florals and one of a kind furniture (did we mention the teepee and cake by Sweet Cheeks Baking Company!) that truly highlighted each unique detail from custom wooden cutting board placemats provided by Grace and Salt, mixed pattern and textured table settings and amazing lighting options! Lucky To Be In Love added the finishing touches to the table with garden inspired paper goods. With the bride and groom clad in Nicole Miller and Combat Gentleman, and hair and make-up by Audra Rene and Elizabeth Root the romantic scene was set! Our couple, so very much in love dressed in the magnificent bridal and groom changing rooms at Vista Valley – think fainting couch, elegant chandelier and grand mirror for her, and a stunning Italian inspired library for him. The day was completed with an adorable flower girl, wearing the most fantastic flower crown, bridesmaid, groomsman and officiant – a truly intimate experience any couple would dream about. All captured by the truly talented Shane and Lauren Photography, a simply magical day! Taking the vibrant garden, Parisian inspiration to a whole new level, this shoot plays with color, texture, romance and whimsy.
