From The Bride…Our inspiration for the wedding was “Bohemian Chic” mixed with rustic elements. The outcome of that was pretty white lace details, flowers mixed with greens, gold accents, and rustic wood pieces (menu, table numbers, and king tables/chairs). I wanted the decor to be pretty yet comfortable at the same time. It was also very important for us to incorporate both cultures (Indian and American) by including Indian traditions in the Ceremony and the Reception. For example, the presentation of the Manthrakodi (blessed Sari given to me by Shawn’s parents during the wedding) and the thali which are threads from the sari tied around my neck symbolizing that we are now formally a couple. 

Shawn and I met in Chicago a little over 6 years ago…he worked at an Advertising agency and I worked at a Magazine/Publication. My boss and I took Shawn and his team out for dinner and drinks. I gravitated towards his warm smile and kind demeanor…we started dating a couple months later and the rest is history :)

Shawn proposed to me in Cabo on Cinco de Mayo in 2014 which is why we wanted to get married there…it is a very special place for us and we couldn’t wait to share it with our family and friends. Our 6 year anniversary was the night before our wedding and I went to school in San Diego and the second I saw The Cabo Surf hotel I knew that was the venue…felt like a little bit of home mixed with everything that makes Cabo special.

From Amy Abbott EventsErin wanted a low key boho flow wedding. The bride and groom hail from Chicago and were planning a wedding while changing jobs, moving into the suburbs and it was all quite a juggle. All of this was on of the reasons they made a decision to have a destination wedding. Erin presented us with a well organized Pinterest board and we took over from there.

They loved the hip and simple sophistication of the Cabo Surf Hotel, and chose that as the place for their reception and for their guests to stay. The whole feel of the weekend with everyone at one space made is relaxed and almost like staying at one giant villa.

Erin and Shawn were married in the Mission San Jose Church and came back to the hotel for the cocktail and reception. The Flowers by Pina Hernandez were simply breathtaking and Erin and Shawn chose hand painted rustic wood, re-purposed from the beach as their bohemian inspired place cards. The flow of the evening was magical and a good time was had by all.

From The Bride…Keith and I both love to travel and have enjoyed visiting new destinations and old favorites often. When we got engaged in San Jose del Cabo on a trip with friends over New Years Eve, we knew that we wanted to come back to Cabo for our wedding. It was a very busy time of year for Keith and I so we knew we needed to find a coordinator in Cabo for help in planning. After looking through more websites and wedding profiles than I care to admit, we decided to work with Amy Abbott and her team. Thank god we did! Amy listened to me describe how I imagined our wedding weekend and the experience for all of our guests and she made it happen. For us it was important to get married in the Catholic Church and have our reception at a hotel that was more intimate and give our friends and family a weekend that showed them all that Cabo had to offer. Within 2 weeks we had booked the Mission de San Jose del Cabo and Cabo Surf Hotel that she recommended without having seen either!

All the planning was going great until Hurricane Odile made a direct hit on the Cabo area two months before our wedding and during the week we were supposed to do our only planning visit to Cabo. There was not a lot of information coming out of the area other than the disaster zone pictures on the news and our planning trip was cancelled since the airport was so heavily damaged. We had to make a decision whether we were going to move forward with our wedding as planned, reschedule for a later date or try to plan for something closer to home for the same date. We finally decided to continue as planned and knew that we would need to just “go with the flow” when we got there. We knew it was a risk since we would not see the church or hotel before the wedding, they didn’t know what kind of flowers they would be able to get and we would have not met any vendors but we wanted to support the larger community of Cabo and the resilience of the people there rebuilding after the hurricane.

Going forward with the wedding was the best decision ever! Cabo Surf Hotel had suffered little damage and was beautiful when we got there! Many other hotels had too much damage so all of our guests ended up staying at Cabo Surf and we filled every room in the hotel. It was like we had rented our own 32-room house for the weekend! With the help of Amy Abbott and her team we were able to still give our guests a weekend and wedding to remember! Everything from the beautiful beach bonfire welcome party on Thursday night to the romantic candlelit rehearsal dinner Friday night and the late night pizza after the reception made sure the fun just kept going. The wedding day felt so calm and relaxed because of Neysa and Leo from Blanc Salon were so great in beautifying me and my bridesmaids that we were actually ready early! I refer to the reception as the best surprise party I’ve ever had. Since Keith and I weren’t able to be too specific due to uncertainty in Cabo, we left a lot of the design details up to Amy, our florist Pina and Martha from Cabo Surf. The tables were perfect family style set up surrounding the dance floor with beautiful colorful flowers lit by wonderful hanging lights and candles. It provided the back drop to the best night of our lives with heartfelt speeches, wonderful food and lots of celebratory dancing with friends and family both young and old. Sara Richardson and her team captured the day perfectly and everyone is still reminiscing over the pictures about what they refer to as the best family vacation ever where Keith and Nicole happened to also come home married!

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.
