Animal lover Julie and her beau Brenden decided to kick off their end of year celebrations early in 2018 by inviting a rowdy bunch of their nearest and dearest to sunny Cabo San Lucas to celebrate their December 1st nuptials. Along with wedding planners Susana Liera and Nubia Villa, they designed a destination wedding weekend worthy of many a shout out, and to be honest there is far too much for us to cover in just one blog post. We will let you watch and be amazed, but there are a few things we simply must mention first!
Julie and Brenden’s location choice was on the money, the first of a series of touchdowns during their wedding planning process. Frequented by many a Hollywood A-lister, international sports star and globe-trotting business exec, The Resort at Pedregal is considered one of Los Cabos’ premier wedding locations. Nestled in the heart of downtown Cabo San Lucas and opening its back door onto the picture perfect shores of the Pacific Ocean, the resort is renowned for its superior service, immaculate grounds, and complete privacy. Julie kicked things off in a cool and casual getting ready session, sipping champagne with her besties who looked on point in navy blue, figure-hugging gowns. Brenden chose a 3 piece navy blue suit and tie, while his groomsmen took things down a notch in light grey ensembles which were both casual and classy. The star of the show was our bride, whose lace bodice gown with sweetheart neckline and full, princess cut skirt was nothing short of a showstopper. Julie entrusted Suzanne Morel Face and Body Care with her hair and makeup, opting for a loose, side-swept bun and barely-there makeup to complete her look.
Our ceremony took place in the resort’s main lobby, overlooking a crystal clear infinity pool and the panoramic beauty of the Pacific Ocean. Two gorgeous and very excited flower girls lead the processional, and the couple’s personal vows were sweet, sincere and original. Cabo Foral Studio decked out the already glamorous location with an abundance of cream roses and romantic foliage, in collaboration with Linens, Things and More, and both were sure to keep the properties natural beauty at the forefront. With the formalities done and dusted, this fun-loving bunch of partygoers needed no encouragement to get the party started.
Julie and Brenden wanted family and friends to be wined and dined on the finest produce Los Cabos has to offer, and The Resort at Pedregal is second to none when it comes to pleasing their guests. Champagne flowed throughout the evening, and the scrumptious plated dinner was interspersed with heartwarming toasts from our couple’s loved ones. Kilometro band, with Lucas Barron on vocals and his brother Leif backing him up on drums, took care of the tunes as the sky lit up with a spectacular display of fireworks to draw the evening to a close.
Thank you Julie and Brenden for letting us capture your moment, and we wish you many a happy anniversary to come! Another special thank you to Justine Boulin and Josafat de la Toba, whose photography is truly a work of art.
