One and Only Palmilla Wedding by AMY DeYOUNG photographer
October 20, 2011

I thought I was okay with the arrival of Fall, but this charming Los Cabos wedding by AMY DeYOUNG photographer has me missing summer in a big, big way.  Yes, I think a vacation to Mexico might be in order now that I have laid my eyes upon each and every fabulous detail of this magical affair, including beautiful orchid-filled blooms by Mazarte Floral, a breathtaking gown and one insanely gorgeous location.  Seriously, does it get any more stunning than this?  I'll most definitely be spending my day in the gallery, just dreaming away.  Join me there for even more!

From AMY DeYOUNG photographer... This destination wedding took place at the One and Only Palmilla, Los Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  Vanessa and Reid knew early on they wanted to marry one another.  Their first Thanksgiving together was spent with Vanessa's family in Cabo. The night of Thanksgiving dinner, Reid stayed around after everyone had left the table to talk with Vanessa's father.  He asked Vanessa's father for her hand in marriage.  He said yes and even though Reid had not yet asked Vanessa, in the Colombian culture, this is when the engagement begins and is considered official.  So Vanessa's family started celebrating!

When Vanessa and Reid returned from Cabo, Vanessa traveled with her mom and sister to New York City to go Christmas shopping.  While in NY, her mom and sister convinced her to try on some wedding dresses at the Pronovias flagship store, which happened to be across the street from their hotel.  Vanessa felt a little awkward since Reid had not yet officially asked her to marry him.  She was convinced to go and the third dress she tried on was THE ONE.  Vanessa admits to feeling embarrassed because they kept asking about wedding details and she didn't even have a ring yet.  Not to worry...

The day after Vanessa returned from NYC, Reid asked for her hand in marriage.  They decided they wanted to be married in Cabo because that is where Reid asked Vanessa's father and they absolutely love spending time there.  The location of the One and Only was chosen simply because nothing else compares. It is stunning!  They welcomed family and friends as they celebrated at the One and Only.  The ceremony took place in the chapel on the grounds.  Vanessa was escorted in on a horse drawn carriage, the same one that Reid and Vanessa would exit on as Mr. and Mrs.  The party included live music, spectacular food, and lots of dancing.  Such an amazing event!
