Bethany and Bryant’s Wedding Film at Cabo del Sol, Los Cabos

What do you read in almost every wedding-related blog (including ours!) online? Words like “amazing”, “spectacular” and “over-the-top fun” come to mind. While there isn’t a wedding we are lucky enough to capture that doesn’t hold true to all of the above, Bethany and Bryant’s April extravaganza at the ultra-exclusive Cabo del Sol Ocean Golf Course took hardcore wedding awesomeness to another level altogether. Along with their closest family and childhood friends, these dancing soul mates turned an overcast Saturday in Los Cabos into an epic evening celebration of love and togetherness, and here are the highlights!

It’s no secret that every bride wants to shine on her wedding day, and Bethany kicked off the all-important preparations in the comfort of Cabo del Sol’s bridal suite. Never one to blindly follow trends, Bethany said a loud no to this season’s natural makeup fad, opting to go smokey-eyed and metallic. Her stunning gown featured a strapless, sweetheart neckline, mermaid silhouette and divine ruffles, finished with a loosely formed updo and a beautiful Cathedral length veil. And what makes a gala bride? The diamond-encrusted tiara on top! Bethany’s look was both traditional and modern, romantic and fashion-forward all neatly molded into one perfect package, and we can’t get enough of it!

Over on the men’s side of paradise, Mr. McIver played the best supporting groom role down to a tee. Elegant in a white dinner suit and black bow tie, he donned a pair of studded velvet loafers that absolutely every groom should have! Backed up by a fashion-forward bevy of bridesmaids and groomsmen in all black, and baby McIver just oozing cuteness, this was one bridal party ready to rock, and we knew dancing was on the cards. 

As the second hand clicked ever closer to ceremony time, we moved our cameras to the impressive Ocean Meadows, overlooking the Sea of Cortez. The afternoon’s broody weather had formed perfect, rolling waves to serve as our backdrop, and the creative team at The Main Event Cabo concocted a ceremony design featuring barely-there acrylic chairs, a crisp white aisle, and an abundance of pampa grass details. The look was clean and classic with a touch of the bohemian. Bethany made her grand entrance to the soothing sounds of the violin, on the arm of her adoring father and carrying a romantic bouquet of cream and pastel blossoms. As for the groom, our shots of Bryant’s joyful tears speak far more than any words we could write ^HERE^. 

With the formalities under wraps, it was time for the long-awaited reception, which would be one for the record books. Choosing to keep their reception outdoors and take full advantage of all that Cabo’s evening skies have to offer, Bethany and Bryant entrusted all of their wedding dreams, hopes and visions to one person, Mr. Jose Carillo from The Main Event Cabo, and let’s just say he hit a home run. Jose delivered a jaw-dropping, all-white reception space framed by an open canopy and a glorious ceiling of twinkling lights. The monogrammed dance floor, crowned with a sparkling chandelier was the center of the evening’s happenings. 

Our favorite moments? The bride and groom’s money dance, a surprise performance by Bryant’s dancing groomsmen and one very off-script garter toss (watch again to see where it got caught!). 

Congratulations Bethany and Bryant on becoming Mr. and Mrs. McIver, and thank you for entrusting us with your most precious moments. To the wonderful team at Karla Casillas and Co, you’ve created magic once again. We are overjoyed to have played a small part in your success.

Until next time,

Vania and Richard’s Wedding Film at Sunset da Monalisa, Los Cabos

We love watching master wedding planners at work, and Cabo Wedding Services superstar owner Tammy Wolff is the best of the best. When Vania wed Richard this past July, Tammy knocked it out of the park, uniting one of Cabo’s most impressive cliffside locations with a team of first-class vendors to deliver an Instagram worthy celebration that had us filming well past the allotted hour. Sugary blossoms, pastel sunsets, and mouthwatering food set the stage for our couple’s I dos, but it was their intimate connection that lit up the screen. This wedding film is one we have been jumping at the bit to share with you.

True to any awesomely constructed wedding timeline, our morning kicked off with the bride. We arrived early to our couple’s host resort Sheraton Hacienda del Mar to find Vania gorgeous and glowing. Her stunning gown featured an intricate lace bodice, Grecian silhouette, and modest train. Relaxed waves framed rosy makeup to create a look that was fresh, fabulous and perfect for a seaside affair. Our first look took place in the resort’s gardens, a carefully constructed moment that allowed us to capture our couple’s first impressions away from prying eyes. 

As the sun began its slow descent over the sparkling Sea of Cortez, guests boarded private transportation towards the much loved Sunset MonaLisa at Misiones Beach, just outside of the Cabo San Lucas downtown. Guests were ushered through the property’s main entrance and met with awe-inspiring, panoramic views of Land’s End, an impressive site for Cabo veterans and newcomers alike. Vania and Richard’s ceremony space kept the landscape front and center, decorated with simple, gold Chiavari chairs and an arch sprouting pale pink, lavender, and white blossoms thanks to the talented team at Cabo Flowers and Cakes. In a short, sweet ceremony delivered by a family friend, Vania and Richard shared personalized vows and a first kiss just as the colors of sunset appeared on the horizon. It was one WOW moment in the bag and many more to come! 

Sunset MonaLisa’s staff are famous for their fresh, locally sourced drinks and apps, which they served with their customary casualness on one of the property’s waterfront terraces. Guests were wined, dined and provided with the perfect opportunity to snap selfless and admire the views. Located nearby, our reception terrace had been decked out to mirror the ceremony’s pared-back elegance, utilizing clean, white linens with a lustrous sheen, gold chairs, and sparkling crystal. After a scrumptious sit-down dinner, formal toasts and other traditional favorites (Cakes by Donna in Cabo you are amazing!), itchy feet were dancing thanks to Dj Adan Mijares and his legendary beats. Beneath stars and market lights Vania, Richard, and their closest crew shared a night to remember.

Thank you Josafat de la Toba for accompanying us on the lenses. Your photography is inspiring and never ceases to amaze us. To our friends, Tammy and Jessica at Cabo Wedding Services, thank you for trusting in Cinematic touch. And last but not least, Richard and Vania – may this video be seen and reseen throughout many happy years together. 

Until next time,
