This is How You Do Tropical Elegance in Los Cabos

I’ve got serious spring fever right now and this tropical goodness is just about sending me over the edge. Planned by Esoteric Events, it’s elegance done oh-so-right among palm trees and seaside sunsets that make the sand glow. Pretty dreamy right? And let’s not even get started on the gorg color palette. Just stroll on over to the The Vault for the beauty in full captured by Sally Pinera.

From Kristin Alexander at Esoteric EventsMonica and JC love to travel and after hearing about the newly built Cape Hotel they took a trip down there from Chicago to visit and fell in love. They wanted their wedding to feel like a Wes Anderson movie and they instantly knew The Cape was the perfect backdrop for it. The weekend kicked off with a daytime pool party followed by dinner and drinks in town. Guests were able to enjoy wonderful food, live music and walk the town together before the wedding the next day. Monica opted for a warm color palette reminiscent of a Cabo sunset with wood farm tables and chairs to work with the venue and the existing decor. With only their closest family and friends in attendance it was a tight nit group who knew how to party and danced the night away to The Cape’s resident DJ, DJ Capri.

Add These Food52 Items to Your Registry List Pronto!

Some household items are just for fun; some are extra special that only get used from time to time. Others, well, you’ll use every single day. So what are the most commonly registered for items – and thus, probably the most useful ones – to add to your registry to ensure your house becomes a home? The folks at Food52 are sharing their most popular wedding registry must-haves and why they are essential for every couple starting out on their new journey together!

Food52’s Top 10 Registry Items: 

The first thing couples want to upgrade? Flimsy flatware. Our handsome Italian-made sets come in five finishes, from classic stainless steel to on-trend copper.
Our marble board is a heavy-hitter: it’s an entertaining staple and a handy kitchen tool in one! The stay-cool marble is a boon for rolling out dough and keeping your cheese spread from drooping.
A constant on our couples’ must-lists: everyday glasses with a little something extra. The seaside blue brings a much-needed pop of color to your table.
Versatile dinnerware is a big step in the right direction for making your house a home. Do our exclusive sets with Hawkins New York have visions of dinner parties dancing in your head yet?
The simple things are often the most game-changing in your kitchen. Our spoon rest, available in a variety of finishes, will live on your stovetop for years, saving it from drip after drop.
The bed! Don’t forget the bed. Rumpled, yet refined, 100% linen sheets get softer and softer with each wash, and the soothing colors guarantee good dreams only.
A butter keeper is the countertop friend you never knew you needed. Load the top with a stick of butter and the base with a bit of water—it creates a tight seal and you’ll have soft, spreadable butter for many mornings of toast.
Newbie cooks and experienced chef-types alike count on Zwilling Madura fry pans. A PFOA-free nonstick surface and stay-cool handle mean you’re just a flip away from the best omelet of your life.
Our exclusive Mini Griddle is a killer combo of bakeware and cookware. Pizza, cookies, grill, oven, stovetop – this baby does it all.

10. Pour la tourtière d’Annette Stoneware Pie Plate
Not everything needs to be practical – leave some room for the pretty, too. With each slice of pie or quiche you dole out from this special pie plate, a beautiful pattern reveals itself.
