ANDREA AND GRADY’S LOS CABOS DESTINATION WEDDING AT THE CAPE

Andrea and Grady are living proof that a 12 year age gap is no obstacle when it comes to true love. The down-to-earth couple celebrated their union at The Cape, A Thompson Hotel in Cabo San Lucas this past June, inviting a select bunch of new and old friends to share in their happiness. What resulted was a destination wedding weekend filled with sand, surf and sunshine on the shores of the Sea of Cortez. We were lucky enough to witness their I dos, and hope you enjoy watching their wedding film just as much as we enjoyed creating it. 

As wedding day energy bubbled to a fever pitch, Andrea and hair and makeup artist Olga Bustos of Los Cabos Makeup dove headfirst into pre-ceremony preparations. The gorgeous Andrea opted for natural makeup and a classic, half up half down do to compliment her jaw-dropping, Cathedral length veil and Princess cut gown, not to mention the sparkling showstopper on her ring finger! The creative team at Florenta Design delivered a Pinterest worthy bouquet of cottage garden-inspired florals in muted tones and whimsical foliage, while our Groom, on the other side of paradise, chose snazzy blue, crisp white and tan to complete his look. Spirits were high as the champagne corks flew, and before long it was go time. 

What better place to vow to love one another forever than overlooking the sparkling Sea of Cortez, a panorama which needs little to no adornment. Along with wedding planner Gaby Cobian of Vivid Occasions, Andrea chose to keep her ceremony setup simple, opting for a geometric style, hexagonal altar adorned with bohemian inspired florals and foliage, which framed the ocean’s natural beauty and delivered a panorama worthy of a magazine spread. After a touching first look on The Cape’s impressive lobby staircase, Andrea and Grady exchanged vows in a sweet symbolic ceremony conducted by a family friend, and then it was time to party.

Vivid Occasions and Florenta Design kept on delivering as we moved through to our reception space, as the perfectly over-the-top Imperial tables embellished with an abundance of backyard florals, delicious accents of ripe seasonal fruit and billowing chiffon runners stole the show. Andrea made a statement dress change, donning a short and sparkly, 1920s inspired number before her first dance. Guests mingled, dined on The Cape’s famously fresh, local produce and sipped cocktails throughout the balmy evening, before an explosive fireworks display and packed dance floor (thank you DJ Mijares!) had them on their feet. This was a group who had traveled to paradise to celebrate love, and they did just that, Cabo style!

A special thanks to the team at The Cape, whose amazing service makes our job all that much easier, as well as photographer Julieta Amezcua and second shooter Allan Carrazco. Thank you Andrea and Grady for choosing us, and congratulations on becoming Mr and Mrs!

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 XXX 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!
