From the Bride… I have always wanted to get married near the ocean and Cabo has always held a special place in my heart. Cullen and I have traveled there several times and made many great memories there. When we got engaged it was an easy decision to choose Cabo as the place to have our wedding weekend. The beautiful beaches, laid-back vibe, and great restaurants make Cabo a great place to throw a party. Within a few weeks of getting engaged we flew down to scout out a location for our big day. We hired the amazing Amy Abbott of Amy Abbott Events and scouted out our venue. We chose Cabo del Sol because it held the perfect mix of rustic elegance and natural beauty.

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! We had 175 of our closest friends and family join us over the Memorial day weekend to celebrate. Amy Abbott and her awesome staff went above and beyond my expectations for the event and executed my vision perfectly. Everything from the lounge furniture, hanging lanterns and glass blown hearts on the place settings were perfect. Cullen and I were in agreement that the music was the most important element to the party. The James Speer band flew in from Austin and had our guests dancing before dinner was served and well into the evening.

Our friends and family had an amazing time and we are still hearing about how much fun our wedding was. Sara Richardson perfectly captured all our most precious moments throughout the night and we have a lot of really fun pictures from the dance party with all our guests. We both wish we could go back and experience it all one more time!

Cabo San Lucas Beachside Hotel Wedding

A winter wedding in Cabo San Lucas is always an idea we can get behind! This one’s a kick-off-your-shoes kind of affair, with a ceremony on the beach and reggae tunes at the reception, that has us swept off our feet! Beautifully captured by Sara Richardson Photography, you can dive into the full gallery right here.

BeachHotel

From the beautiful Bride… Mariano and I met in Cabo San Lucas. There was no need for conversation – of course we would tie the knot there! We have so many insanely beautiful memories at the beaches, camping, fishing and diving in Cabo that we were so excited to solidify our relationship on the beach down there with our closest friends and family members present.

We chose to have the wedding on December 6th 2014 at The Cabo Surf Hotel because of its intimacy and simplicity. The hotel itself is not huge so we knew that it would allow for a more private setting. Fifty-five friends and family members made it to the celebration and everything went magically. The amount of love during our special day was overflowing. I’ll never forget all the cat calls during the ceremony, all the happy tears that were shed, the dancing, and the insanely gorgeous huge red moon that appeared just as the reception was kicking off.

The Shamans, a local band play from Cabo, couldn’t have been a better fit with their classic rock reggae vibes. The tables and flowers by Pina were simple and gorgeous! Everyone had a sand dollar with their name on it that we flew in from the Bahamas, and my sister made our favorite homemade oatmeal cookies as a midnight snack for everyone to take home with them! I was so grateful to our photographer Sara Richardson and her team for capturing every moment. She has a romantic, organic style that I adore, and we will cherish the photos from her forever!

Black Tie Cabo San Lucas Wedding

Just because the bash takes place on the beach, doesn’t mean you have to abandon all elegance and glamour. This Bride took her love for all things chic (her dress is the same one that Ms. Carrie Bradshaw wore on the cover of Vogue) and brought a black tie affair to Mexico for her nighttime nuptials. Sara Richardson snapped away and we have these gorgeous goodies to enjoy for the rest of today.

From the Bride… Mark and I knew we wanted a destination wedding from the moment we got engaged. We both love to travel, and loved the idea of having a multiple day celebration with our family and friends in a fabulous location. Cabo holds a special place in our hearts as it was one of the first places we went together, and really the place we fell in love.

Planning the design elements of our wedding was so much fun! I am obsessed with all things stripes, and thought an all-white color palette with blacks and gold would set that off perfectly. I worked with an amazing graphic designer who was able to create paper goods that matched my visions perfectly, and also ordered a few things from Etsy. Unfortunately, we were unable to bring our French Bulldog, Monte, to Cabo. Wanting to incorporate him, we made one of our custom drinks the “El Monte” and also created “Monte’s Recovery Kits” for our welcome bags.

My wedding dress was the third one I tried on. I instantly loved it, and as a huge Sex and the City fan, finding out it was the dress Carrie wore for her Vogue cover made it even more special. The dress really set the tone for the rest of wedding planning. Mark and I both love getting dressed up, and thought it would be a fun twist on the typical bleachy Cabo wedding to have a black tie affair at night. We started our ceremony just after the sun had set, which allowed us to have a beautifully lit chandelier and romantic overhead lights. We choose to have our head table in the center of the room, with the other tables around us to create an intimate and inclusive feel with our loved ones.

Our entire wedding week was a dream come true. From our fantastic welcome dinner at Los Tres Gallos, to our day after pool party, we wouldn’t trade a thing. Our friends and family are still reminiscing, and getting to relive the week through photos and videos will be something we will always cherish. We are so thankful for all of the amazing vendors who made this day so special for us; everything was precisely what we wished for. We can’t wait to go back to Cabo for years to come!
