TARA AND JUSTIN’S LOS CABOS DESTINATION WEDDING AT SUNSET DA MONA LISA, CABO SAN LUCAS, MEXICO
On an uncharacteristically windy Saturday in November, Tara and Justin said I do in an extravagant destination wedding in Los Cabos, Mexico, and we went along for the ride! Tara chose Cabo’s wedding planner, Tammy Wolff of Cabo Wedding Services, to help her with the details, and Tammy’s inside knowledge of all things wedding lead her straight to Sunset MonaLisa restaurant, an Italian fusion extravaganza nestled high on the cliffs overlooking Misiones Beach. With panoramic views to the famous Cabo San Lucas arch and Land’s End, as well as 5 star dining and exquisite service, it was love at first sight for Tara and Justin, who quickly signed on the dotted line. After months of careful planning our calendars announced November, and it was go time!
Conscious of the time and money their loved ones had invested in traveling to Cabo, Tara and Justin wanted to kick things off with a relaxed, casual and oh so Cabo welcome event aboard Cabo Wave, a luxury dinner/sunset cruise that departs from the picture perfect Cabo San Lucas marina. Cervezas, Mai Tais, Margaritas and Piña Coladas, as well as a scrumptious buffet of traditional Mexican dishes, this was the perfect introduction to Cabo for newcomers and a very big welcome back for seasoned travelers. Tara and Justin took advantage of the 2 hour long cruise and gorgeous Cabo sunset to mingle with their guests, before getting an early night in preparation for the big day.
Back at the beautiful Hyatt Ziva in San Jose del Cabo, Tara and Justin’s home base for the weekend, it was a revolving door or Cabo’s finest wedding service providers. In charge of making sure Tara looked her radiant best was Blanc Bridal Salon, who created a dramatic smokey eye and relaxed down do to complement Tara’s off the shoulder, ivory gown and dreamy, Cathedral length veil. Tara and Justin’s sweet first look took place onsite at Sunset MonaLisa, with Land’s End framing our shots, and award winning photographer Sara Richardson joined us to capture the moment.
Tammy Wolff’s weddings are famous for their careful attention to design and detail, and she didn’t disappoint when it came to dressing up this wedding location. Along with The Cabo Wedding Co and Cabo Flowers and Cakes, Tammy created a clean and classic reception space, utilizing low, pale pink and cream centerpieces in gold bases and an abundance of market lights to create her trademark romantic effect. When it came time to let their hair down, Tara and Justin had decided to go big or go home, and hired not only Cabo’s premier party starters Deja Vu band, but also DJ Alex to keep their guests on the dance floor. As if their list of top notch entertainers wasn’t enough, Tara and Justin lit up the Cabo skyline in a spectacular display of fireworks to seal the deal.
Congratulations Tara and Justin and a big thank you to Cabo Wedding Services for your trust in Cinematic Touch. It’s always a pleasure!
