Ashley-Rose and Lane ‘s Destination Wedding at One & Only Palmilla, Los Cabos

There aren’t enough adjectives in the dictionary to describe just how awesome Ashley-Rose and Lane are. With movie star looks and fun loving, down-to-earth personalities, we knew right away that they were going to be a dream to shoot. While every wedding we work throws up new and exciting challenges for us as videographers, this couple really couldn’t have made it any easier for us. Their special celebration was warm and inclusive, full of Southern charm and just the right sprinkling of Mexican flair. We love, love, love that they chose us to immortalize their moment.

Any fairytale wedding requires a castle, and in this case, Ashley-Rose chose the One and Only Palmilla. Arguably one of the most prestigious luxury resorts in the greater Los Cabos area, Palmilla is renowned for its privacy, making it a longtime favorite of Tinseltown celebrities, jet-setters, and blushing brides. The property seems to emerge from the surrounding landscape, complementing rather than distracting from the ever-changing blues of the Sea of Cortez and the hotel’s impressive internal landscaping. Set amongst manicured lawns and towering palm trees, the resorts Hacienda style architecture and understated Mexican interiors are the perfect canvas on which to bring to life and epic celebration, just as Ashley Rose did. 

Our bride chose a romantic, white lace gown with a cinched waist and a full veil. While her dress paid homage to tradition and downright good taste, Ashley injected some modern glam with her intricate drop earrings, sparkling headpiece, and crystal encrusted stilettos. Her flawless, sculptured updo and dusty pink makeup was the work of Blanc Bridal Salon‘s Neysa Berman, who understood Ashley’s personality down to a T and added her own touch of the dramatic with some very glamorous lashes.

Ashley looked every bit the fairytale princess as she arrived at Palmilla’s chapel in a beautiful horse-drawn carriage. No expense was spared when adorning the already gorgeous chapel, as long, entangled vines in creamy pastel shades wound up stairs and through pews, all the way to the altar, a living, breathing secret garden effect. Cabo local Rev. Diego Vidal created a warm and loving ceremony, and the joy and excitement with which Lane looked at Ashley Rose injected their more traditional “in richer and in poorer’s” with very real emotion. 

So how do you top a romantic, whimsical and fairytale inspired wedding ceremony fit for a modern-day princess? With a banging party to boot! Ashley and Lane focused the following festivities on their family and friends, serving fruity cocktails and Palmilla’s 5-star cuisine. Guests were treated to an upbeat Mexican string trio performance, scrumptious wedding cake and world-renowned Los Cabos hospitality. Ashley’s non-traditional father/daughter dance made us smile from ear to ear, and her dad couldn’t have looked happier. While this celebration of soulmates was very much our couple’s doing, they did have help, employing Palmilla’s onsite coordinator and phenomenal wedding planner Ruth Flores to put their ideas into practice. 

Ashley Rose and Lane’s wedding day was nothing more than a work of art, proving that a truly successful wedding event lies in the creation of a living canvas of emotion, energy, and interaction. It’s a Monet on the wall of the Louvre brought to life, aesthetics and very careful planning animated by real-life love, genuine emotion, and an unbeatable sense of humor. We can’t thank you enough Ashley Rose and Lane and hope to capture more of your milestones in years to come.
