Intimate Cabo San Lucas Beach Wedding at Villa Captiva In Punta Bella

In the wedding blogging world, we have our own celebrities, and Lane Dittoe is definitely one of them. If you mention his name around our offices, you most likely will hear us all start listing off our favorite Lane Dittoe classics (like this one or this one or this one). Well, it’s safe to say we have another beauty to add to the list, and it’s all thanks to this gorgeous couple and their picture perfect Cabo San Lucas wedding. And you can see just what I mean right here.

From The Bride…Brian and I have known each other for almost 9 years. I have always known he was the one for me so when we finally decided to get married, we knew we didn’t want a traditional one night wedding celebration. We wanted our wedding to feel like a vacation, the kind that you take with the closest of friends. We chose Cabo San Lucas because it was an easy flight for our friends, and especially for our dog Chloe, who just so happened to be our ring bearer.

We rented a beautiful, 10,000 square foot oceanfront villa for four nights. We hired a staff to cook breakfast and lunch for us everyday and we enjoyed just a few of the many delicious restaurants Cabo had to offer. We had a wonderful time with our nearest and dearest. While the guys went golfing at Cabo del Sol, the girls stayed back at the villa where Suzanne Morel’s mobile spa came to treat us to massages, manicures and pedicures overlooking the ocean. Our days were sun-drenched and spent on the beach drinking cervezas & margaritas, lounging by the pool and enjoying a full staff who attended to our guests and their every need. Our goal was that our friends didn’t lift a finger and simply enjoyed themselves. I’d say it was a mission accomplished.

I hired a Suzanne Morel as my wedding planner and, although she helped with much of the organization, flowers and food, I DIY-ed much of my decor. I am obsessed with black & white stripes, pink and gold so it was vital that I incorporate them into the decor. Gold-rimmed plates, pink napkins, gold flatware and personalized carved wooden placeholders sat atop a single black & white striped table. The gold leafed “yours mine” signs were also custom made as well as the large golden pinata. We all sat together and enjoyed a delectable dinner, followed by dancing and more poolside lounging.

We wouldn’t trade our wedding week for anything in the world.

Whimsical

From Saraí Flores of Signature, Event Consulting & DesignWhen creating the perfect Cabo Mexican wedding, we face the challenge of not falling for clichés. On the contrary, the goal is to orchestrate something unique that says “Mexico” and reflects our clients’ personality and flair.

Working on Tracy & Alex’s wedding was fun and joyful since day one. The initial inspiration and vision was very clear; we were aiming for a chic Mexican and happy atmosphere. We went for bold colors, but not to the point of it looking like a kid’s birthday party.

The scenery was just perfection; it was located in one of the most beautiful terraces of Esperanza Resort. The ceremony was the perfect moment to make a statement, with a bright and joyful setting full of red, orange and pink flowers. We mixed different textures and styles to make it fun and interesting. Working with floral designer Pina is a guaranteed funfest, not to mention her talent for creating the most beautiful arrangements.

The reception took place at the restaurant terraces. We created a very graceful, festive and amusing atmosphere. We had fun mixing fabrics, colors, patterns and textures. We added little touches of the desert, like mini cactei and wild flowers. The funniest part was probably the Burro Photo Booth – hard to pick one, but it was probably the most successful element of the wedding; people didn’t want to get out of the Burro area where we had props, mask and sombreros.

From the beautiful Bride… Find a good wedding planner! I was so fortunate to find Martha and Sarai whom I immediately clicked with and was able to trust fully with executing the perfect weekend. With destination weddings, you have to be able to put your trust in your planner because it is impossible for the bride to take care of the details the way they would if the wedding were in the city they live in. Since I trusted Martha and Sarai so much and spent a lot of time with them before hand going over each detail many times, I was able to just give them some basic ideas on what I liked and envisioned and let them take it from there. When I arrived for the big weekend, I didn’t have to do a thing. I was able to enjoy my guests the entire time and everyone commented that I was the most calm bride they have ever seen. Having that calmness was priceless.

Things I loved the most: The chuppah was absolutely stunning, and the table settings were the most beautiful I have ever seen!!! The donkey was so much fun – our guests loved taking pictures with him when they entered the reception. The entertainment all weekend was amazing – we were lucky to have fantastic musicians (guitar players, mariachi, and a proper band for the party). Nothing gets a party going better than good music!!

ChurchHotel

From the Bride… I am very proud of the fact that I am from Baja California Sur. I absolutely love it here! One day, when I was a little girl, I visited Santa Rosalia’s Church and I knew then that I wanted to get married in that church. I was very impressed by the unique and simple beauty that was designed by the Architect Gustavo Eiffel. I had never been to Paris but a little French Colony in the middle of the Baja was the perfect location!

Once I got engaged, my fiancé and I travelled to Santa Rosalia looking for the ideal place to have the reception. We were also in search for the best location to have unforgettable pictures taken on our wedding day. This area looks like it was stopped in time. You can see the deterioration of the buildings over the years but it is still incredibly beautiful. My fiancé fell in love with the place as well so it was set, our wedding would be in Santa Rosalia with a beautiful reception in Mulege, B.C.S. We chose a little Boutique Hotel right in the middle of Mulege named “Hotel Serenidad” and they had all I needed for my very special day. I must add that I am a professional florist specializing in weddings, so the entire concept was more than planned a long time ago and it was there where we found the right place to develop our wedding concept; eclectic, rustic/chic with a little vintage touch.

The whole family loved the idea of joining us in Santa Rosalia and Mulege for our wedding celebration. Three days of celebrations between Santa Rosalia’s conservative French style and an eclectic relaxing atmosphere in Mulege. With my team’s support from work we travelled with everything that we needed in order to create a harmonious ambience in the place. Our color palette: peach, cream, pale pink and greens with orange accents. Wooden tables with single runners, vases of various sizes, bouquets along the tables, a perfect pergola to decorate with hundreds of ribbons and hanging votive candles. A small and very warm reception surrounded by our loved ones. A beautiful soprano sang during the ceremony and during the reception. We also had a local band as well as a local DJ. It was incredible and exceeded our expectations that we were able to find everything that we needed for our big day locally. Not to mention all the delicious meals that we enjoyed during our three day celebration inside Hotel Serenidad. The main dish for our wedding day was a Serenidad specialty for the last 40 years.

We are looking forward to celebrating anniversaries in such a great location and being only 8 hours driving from our home town of Cabo. It was definitely worth all the work and we loved the images captured by our great friend and excellent photographer Sara Richardson. She understood perfectly the style that we were looking for and what we expected. Something magical to enjoy forever!
