While romance abounds at all of the destination weddings we are lucky enough to capture, Lena and Rick’s celebration of love in Cabo San Lucas took romance to another level. Hosted at the stunning and contemporary The Cape, and by the hand of Vivid OccasionsWedding Team, this fun loving couple married against the backdrop of the brilliant Sea of Cortez and the famous Los Cabos cacti, in a ceremony that was both heartfelt and memorable.
We began our day shooting a moment we LOVE to capture, the first look! Lena quietly tapped Rick on the shoulder to announce her arrival, as her eager guests looked on from an upstairs balcony, anxious to witness the private moment. With their nerves somewhat eased, the ceremony was underway. Against a romantic wooden archway decorated with touches of white, cream and ivory (beautiful work by Florenta), Lena and Rick wiped away tears to read personal vows and seal their union. The bride’s intricately buttoned train and the groom’s dapper suit and boutonniere, are evidence of the attention to detail and outright good taste that made their day so special.
Continuing to wow their guests, Lena and Rick took the party upstairs to The Cape’s trendy Rooftop Bar. Dinner took place in a setting that combined the clean lines and natural, wooden elements of the hotel, with the femininity of roses and orchids. Details such as personalized fireworks, enthusiastic dancing and some warm-hearted speeches from parents and bridal party meant our team of cinematographers were never a moment without material. Lena and Rick paid close attention to music, choosing Cabo’s uber talented Kilometro band to keep everyone on the dance floor, along with a special performance on keyboard from the groom’s best man.
After all is said and done, we had a blast shooting Lena and Rick’s big day. A special shout out to my talented team at Cinematic Touch, along with The Cape’s warm and welcoming staff!
