Vicki and Vik’s Wedding at Sunset Mona Lisa, Los Cabos

Vicki and Vik’s Los Cabos destination wedding in July was set to be a scorcher. Summer’s unrelenting sunshine was forecast to push the mercury high and the absence of cloud cover provided little hope of intermittent bouts of shade, but this Colorado couple was determined to celebrate their nuptials in style. Along with wedding planner Paola from Cabo in Love, Vicki and Vik decided to go big, bold and beautiful, combining good food, great wine and a lot of color into a weekend-long celebration worthy of celebrity status. 

We unpacked our cameras at host resort Grand Fiesta Americana, where friends and family buzzed with excitement as the traditional Indian Haldi ceremony unraveled. Covering the faces, hands, and feet of the soon-to-be newlyweds in bright yellow turmeric paste is said to invite luck, prosperity and ward off evil spirits, a stepping stone into a happy life as man and wife. It was a moment of peace, joy, and togetherness that set standards high for what was to come. Guests were brimming with excited energy, waiting anxiously to see what else this fun-loving couple had in store. 

On the morning of the big day, as guests lounged poolside and enjoyed some of that Cabo brand sunshine, it was time to get the preparations underway. Safe in the air-conditioned comfort of her suite, Vicki was the epitome of bridal elegance in a crisp white two-piece with a vibrant red overlay, her bright lips, gold jewelry, and gorgeous green eyes completing the statement look. As any bride knows, you are only as good as your girls, and Vicki’s team was on point in shimmering pink and gold. Her sister, the maid of honor, upped the ante by donning baby blue, and with hair and makeup kits packed away, Team Vicki was officially wedding-ready.  After a short and sweet first look (note the adorable tears in Vik’s eyes) it was time to board the buses.

Our couple had chosen the iconic Sunset MonaLisa as the location for their festivities. Nestled cliffside over Missiones Beach and with views to Land’s End and the famous Los Cabos Arch, the restaurant is surrounded by sandy beaches, towering rock formations, and emerald green oceans. On a terrace overlooking the horizon, Vicki and Vik said “I do” in a ceremony punctuated with love, giggles, and good-natured jibes, leaving our guests roaring with laughter and crying happy tears as the celebrant announced Mr. and Mrs. Sed for the first time. The congratulations were in full swing, but Vicki and Vik were just getting started, having prepared an epic celebration to follow. 

A quick outfit adjustment saw Vicki remove her traditional red lehenga and dance her way into her reception in white. Vicki and Vik had chosen to go minimal when it came to floral decorations, opting to showcase Cabo in all its glory. String lights twinkled in the evening sky as guests toasted to the future, and as DJ Ricardo Patiño opened the dance floor the Cabo sky lit up with fireworks. It was an evening to remember for all the right reasons, and we hope Mr. and Mrs. Sed, their friends and family enjoyed it every bit as much as we did. 

PS. A huge thank you to Vicki and Vik for your kind words. Your testimonial means the world to us. 

Until next time, 

Angel + Luz

HANNAH AND GAVIN’S BOHO BEAUTIFUL WEDDING AT ACRE BAJA, LOS CABOS, MEXICO.

The fabulous, farm to table Acre Baja is fast becoming one of Los Cabos’ hottest destination wedding locations, and as with all hot spots, it’s sometimes easy for the location to overshadow the event. This was NOT the case when it came to Hannah and Gavin’s April’s wedding bash, which incorporated all things fashionable and up-to-the-minute with sweet, personal touches and quirky details that made it very much about our happy couple. Welcome to what we call the wonderful world of Hannah and Gavin.

Hannah has a movie star smile, so let’s start there. Her dress of choice was right off the pages of a Style Me Pretty blog, incorporating all of this season’s boho beautiful design trends into one stunning, white crocheted number with flared sleeves, an exposed back and lots of lace and tassels. Along with her Cathedral length veil, the ensemble was ethereal, perfectly complemented by her relaxed blond waves and barely-there makeup. Backed up by her best girls in shades of peach and orange, Hannah opted for a loose arrangement of tropical leaves and white blooms by Flowers and Events Los Cabos and looked just the right balance of silver screen glam and Baja beach bride. Gavin and his boys went formal in black bow ties, and guests put on their Sunday best in honor of the long-awaited moment.

We love wedding ceremonies, and Gavin and Hannah decided to say “I do” to the sweet melody of the guitar, amongst wildflowers and palm trees, on Acre’s lawn terrace. While we adored the sweet anecdotes, traditional marriage rituals and, of course, the first kiss, it was the look on Gavin’s face as he watched his bride make her entrance that we were ecstatic to capture on camera. Part joy, part awe and a whole lot of love, it was clear Gavin was exactly where he wanted to be. With the formalities taken care of, wedding planner Paola from Cabo in Love guided guests through to what was to be one hell of a party.

Hannah and Gavin consider themselves dance partners for life, and dance they did! To accompany their mouthwatering appetizers and sunset cocktails by the pool, they opted to tip their hats to local tradition, allowing the Mariachi to take care of the tunes. As we moved through to Acre’s Mango Orchard for dinner and dancing, Pura Vida beat took over the stage. Guests were wined and dined on some of Cabo’s freshest food and finest cocktails, before kicking off their shoes and hitting the dancefloor. As the sun set over the desert skyline, our bride and groom relished every moment with their closest family and friends, and we were lucky enough to be entrusted with the memories.

Now for the shoutouts! Proving time and time again just how refined their tastes really are, Hannah and Gavin chose the hugely talented photography duo Chris and Ruth to capture their special day. A very big thank you to Jessica and her team at Acre Baja for their tireless work and dedication. We had a blast!

Leah and Jason Wedding at Dreams Los Cabos Suites & Golf Resort & Spa

We had the opportunity to work with Leah and Jason thanks to the mother of the bride… Teresita contacted us around 5 months before the wedding and all contact was always with her.  We actually knew the couple until the wedding day and, you know what?  It was like we already knew them.  Teresita made us feel like if we were friends from long time ago since the very beginning.  Maybe was that…

Also, Leah and Jason´s family and friends are warm, kind, and fun.  They extend all this qualities to the people around them so, it felt familiar.

Don´t miss the father of the bride piece of advise!  It is the BEST I have ever heard!  😉

From Marisa,

Cinematic Touch did such a fabulous job with my wedding videography! I am a very picky bride and was so nervous I wouldn’t like my video and I LOVED it! He edited my fathers speech so beautifully into the music, the drone shots are amazing and some of my favorite parts! I am so grateful for Ángel and his team as they delivered everything I asked for and more! I watched many wedding videos by various videographers and truly believe they are the best in Cabo!  Thank you thank you!

Than YOU Marisa and Kenny!

Sophina and Azim Wedding at The Cape – Sunset Da Mona Lisa – Hacienda Cocina Cantina, Los Cabos, Mexico

I could tell you about how Sophina and Azim’s amazing wedding had everything!  But, I recommend watching their film and find out by yourself…  I also prefer sharing with you what this amazing couple reviewed us in our Facebook page and this post will be completed!  Easy! 😉

“Working with Angel was absolutely amazing! Throughout the process from start to finish he was easy to communicate with and always available to answer our questions during the planning phase.

We had a three day wedding and spent a lot of time with Angel and his team, everyone was friendly and they didn’t make you feel like they were in your space at all. Our video captured so many of our favorite moments from our wedding and it is amazing to watch it and re-live the amazing week we had with all our family and friends. Angel has a special way of piecing together everything to fit nicely, and make the video flow very smoothly.

I highly recommend cinematic touch for your wedding videography, definitely the best in Cabo! Thanks Angel and team!”
