The second my eyes graced all the gorgeous sitting in this post, I was a goner. I knew from that moment on, I would spend this day drooling over all the Cabo prettiness captured by Callaway Gable, inevitably delaying my productivity a bit. But it’s worth it and then some, because every image is a dream come true. And the couple in the middle of it all? They are a vision, making your hours spent in this gallery feel like you are flipping through the most stylish of magazines. See it all here.

From the Bride…We both love to travel and knew we wanted to tie the knot in a destination setting but wanted it close enough so most of our guest would be able to attend the celebration with us. Since we live in California and a lot of our guests were from California we choose Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. I knew I wanted to keep everything very simple and clean because I did not want to take away from the beautiful architecture. My colors were light grey, tan, white and an accent of green.The wedding was held in a beautiful wooden chapel that looks over the water. It is open on both ends to let the ocean breeze through and it has a giant iron cross hanging down in the front. The chapel was not a working chapel but an architectural setting for weddings to take place. This all took place at The Cabo Azul Resort.
We had a traditional Christian Ceremony and my father was the one who officiated the wedding. It was a very emotional ceremony for everyone because he was able to tell personal stories that were from the heart. The ceremony was very personal to us since my father was marrying us and he was able to tell specifics from our lives that everyone was able to relate to. It was also very emotional because he was giving away his first daughter to a man that she loves.
The reception was held at Javier’s Restaurant on the deck outside which was also located at the resort and My husband surprised everyone by hiring fire dancers and it was such a hit. Even people from other resorts and people who had been walking on the beach came over to see the amazing show. Friends of ours had their yacht there and they let us take it out for a week after the wedding. We invited 3 other couples from the wedding party and all lived on the boat for a week. We fished, snorkeled, swam with sea lions and went exploring in all the cities around Cabo. My favorite memory of the day was my husband’s speech to me during the reception. I had never heard my husband speak in public and it was the most beautiful speech and I could tell he meant every word he said

If ever there was a moment where I was about to drop everything and jet off to Mexico, it would be this moment. The culprit? This gorgeous destination wedding crafted by Fiestas Los Cabos and Elena Damy. From the second I laid eyes on the images from Parker J Pfister Photography I was done with snow and winter and so, so ready for sunshine and margaritas. They play extra nice with south of the border “I Dos”. See for yourself right here in the full gallery.

From the Bride… From the moment we got engaged Kenny and I knew we wanted to kick off our marriage celebrating with family and friends in a warm and fun location. The One and Only Palmilla in Cabo was a natural choice since it was the first place we vacationed together. We envisioned a relaxing and fun weekend with activities for our guests to enjoy. Judging by the fact that people are still talking about it I think we more than fulfilled our vision!
Everything from our save the date box filled with stationary by Ceci New York, a mini bottle of patron and a sombrero to the welcome bag with beach balls, waterproof iPod speakers, Cuban cigars, and other vacation essentials set the tone for the weekend to come.
We started the weekend festivities with a beautiful sunset cruise on the Sea of Cortez. The following day our guests enjoyed a beachside yoga session and a golf tournament aptly named the “Ashley and Kenny Classic.” Friday’s rehearsal dinner was held at the Office and featured their famous margaritas and fire dancers. Our wedding day’s sunset ceremony, fireworks when we cut the cake, and 2 am jump in Palmilla’s fountain were the perfect ending to a weekend we will never forget.

Raise your hand if you’ve fantasized about having an incredibly intimate and undeniably romantic ceremony on a beach somewhere. You too? Even though I wouldn’t change a thing about the barn wedding I had, I’ll always have a thing for pretty beach getaway weddings. And this adorable couple’s day is just how I would have done it; sweet and simple and ending with a bon fire. Lyde & Wright Photography captured all the pretty and you can see it all right here.

From Lyde & Wright Photography… Jamie and Grant chose to have a small destination wedding at the beautiful Westin Resort in Cabo San Lucas. With close family and friends, they had their ceremony right on the beach. Jamie works as an event planner in the state of Washington, so most of their decor was DIY. Her mother-in-law embroidered all the napkins for the reception, and they made gift bags for all the guests with treats from the Los Cabos area. The ceremony took place just before sunset, allowing most of their formal portraits to be taken right as the sun was going down over the desert. The reception was on an open air patio, secluded from the rest of the resort. The night ended with a campfire by the beach, roasting marshmallows and lighting sparklers.
