A Cabo Wedding Designed for the Modern Bride

With family spread across 17 different countries, this couple knew a destination wedding was a perfect way to organize the chaos. They chose the beaches of Cabo San Lucas and set out to plan their sleek and chic nuptials with a sexy Baja vibe. From the hair and makeup by Suzanne Morel to entire floral and event design perfected by Elena Damy, there’s so much inspiration to steal and thanks to Ashley Bosnick we’ve got it all inside The Vault!

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!

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!

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!
