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, 

Angel + Luz

Veronica and Patrizio’s Wedding at Esperanza Resort, Cabo San Lucas

We thank the cinematography gods day in day out for blessing us with a thriving wedding industry, brilliant sunshine and, well, the perfect conditions in which to do what we do. Wedding after wedding we are swept up in the magic and romance that surrounds our couples, spurring our creative energy and resulting in wedding films we are truly proud to call our own. Veronica and Patrizio’s extraordinary celebration of love was no exception, reminding us of childhood fairytales, warm family reunions and the electrifying excitement of endless possibilities. 

This was not the first, but the second time Veronica and Patrizio have tied the knot, first marrying each other a whopping 15 years ago. After a decade and a half of love, laughter, and happiness, they decided to go for it again, inviting a lucky bunch of their nearest and dearest to witness the renewal of their vows in sunny Los Cabos. Contrary to the smaller, elopement-style vow renewals we are accustomed to, V + P decided to go big or go home, kicking things off with a traditional Catholic ceremony at the ornate Mision de San Jose del Cabo Church, nestled in the artistic heart of San Jose del Cabo. Amongst the soaring white ceilings and gilded adornments, SmartMusic’s mariachi welcomed guests with a subdued soundtrack of more traditional string elements, before our bridal party made their long-awaited entrance in shades of barely-there nude, dusty pink and classic grey.  There were tears of joy and more than a few jaws on the floor as Veronica walked the aisle a few moments later, dressed in a stunning mermaid style gown embellished with lace and beading, hair and makeup courtesy of Neysa Berman and Blanc Bridal Salon. As guests dried their eyes, the couple sealed their renewed commitment with a kiss, and it was time to kick the party into full gear.

Back at the world famous Esperanza, An Auberge Resort, guitarist Adan Mijares greeted guests with some of our favorite covers, as the hotel’s waitstaff served bite-sized eats and premium cocktails. Event designer Elena Damy‘s attention to detail was evident from the get-go, with each and every aesthetic outcome considered and planned to perfection. We especially loved the entrance table, which welcomed guests with tiny, red glass hearts personalized with their name and table number, as well as the crisp white dinner tables and lush floral centerpieces. We were treated to an energetic mariachi performance during dinner, the toe tapping and head nodding transitioning quickly into a packed dance floor as DJ Adan Mijares took the decks. With delicious food, bottomless glasses, and first-rate music throughout, V + P’s evening was a heady whirlwind of fun and frivolity. Not a moment of the antics went unrecorded, as the fast-on-his-feet photographer Josafat de la Toba and his team joined us in capturing the madness.

Thank you, Veronica and Patrizio, for renewing your vows with panache. We can’t wait for round three!
