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.

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!

From the beautiful Bride…This intimate wedding in Cabo with 30 guests was all about family & friends. Most of the guests stayed at the venue, Villa Turquesa, and it was a week-long celebration overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The groom is a hockey player for the St. Louis Blues and the bride is a sweet southern belle from Dallas.

-The bride’s earrings were worn by Marilyn Monroe, and were a gift from the bride’s father and step-mom as her “something old”.

-The groom’s daughter, Layna, made the bride the blue heart you see in the photos – that was her “something blue”.

– Seashells were used as twist on the traditional boutonniere.

– The seahorse was one of our main design elements and subtly incorporated through the décor.

-All of the linens and pillows were hand-sewn and custom-made just for this wedding.

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.

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!!
