Elegant Esperanza Resort Wedding: Jasmine & Chris

If I had to describe Jasmine and Chris’s wedding in one word, it would be elegance. Jasmine envisioned her big day in one of her favorite and most traditional wedding colors; white with a touch of silver. It was such a pleasure planning their big day; Jasmine was a very creative bride, and paid a lot of attention to details.

As you can see in their fabulous wedding photos, courtesy of the amazing CHRIS+LYNN | Destination Wedding Photographers, we had white, silver and accents in blush pink spread throughout the wedding decor. Jasmine looked stunning in her beautiful wedding gown (and one of the most amazing veils we have seen lately), her wedding jewelry and bridal bouquet, along her handsome groom.

Their wedding ceremony decor accentuated Jasmine’s vision in white and the location at the beautiful Esperanza and Sea of Cortez as a backdrop was just the perfect spot where they exchanged their vows and started their life as a husband and wife.

For their wedding reception we added a soft touch of pink roses to the centerpieces, which at the time of sunset matched the colors of the sky.

Jasmine and Chris’s wedding at Esperanza resort was truly memorable and elegant, and I can’t wait to meet the beautiful couple when they return to Los Cabos.

An Intimate and Extravagant Destination Wedding: Phoenix and Chris

Cabo-San-Lucas-wedding-planner-01

At Karla Casillas And Co., Wedding and Event Specialists, we plan weddings of all shapes and sizes and for couples of all ages.  On our first phone call, Phoenix described her dream Cabo destination wedding to her long-time boyfriend Chris in perfect detail.  She knew she wanted it small and extravagant, a sweet ceremony and family dinner attended by only the couple’s parents and Chris’ sister, before their full-scale reception at home!  When I met the couple on their first site visit to Los Cabos, Chris told me what seemed like a movie romance, a relationship that has survived everything thrown in its path and gone the distance despite the couple’s young age.  Their love truly was the inspiration for us when planning their dream event.

Cabo-San-Lucas-wedding-planner-04

We love all things color, and working with Phoenix and Chris’ wedding palette of eggplant purple, dark silver and white was a designers’ dream.  We added touches of bling and rich texture in all the right places, from the cake stand to the rosette tablecloth, and were nothing short of thrilled when Phoenix chose superstar photographer Ed Pingol to capture her special day.  Ed’s dedication to the moment and incredible creativity were very inspiring.

Villa Bellisima Wedding: Erica + Lyle

Villa-bellisima-cabo-wedding-1

There was no doubt in my mind that this Villa Bellissima wedding was going to be fun and quirky after I finished my first call with Erica and Lyle.  FUN was the keyword and driving theme behind their wedding, and Lyle’s wish to involve his beautiful daughter in every aspect of the wedding day was truly memorable.  From our bow-tied groom to our stunning bride, and every guest along the way, the party was truly memorable, not to mention the spontaneous Chippendale dance by Lyle and his boys!

Villa-bellisima-cabo-wedding

Let’s face it – Villa Bellissima is about as stunning a backdrop as any.  Located in Pedregal and set against the backdrop of towering cliffs and the Pacific Ocean, we knew that photographer Daniel Jireh’s photos would be nothing short of amazing.  Working with the team from The Main Event Cabo, we added to the beauty of the location with crisp white tablecloths and towering manzanita tree centerpieces, lots of hanging roses and a sweetheart table to beat any other!  When teamed with a complete lighting package from Adan Mijares and Associates this was event space to remember!

Cabo del Sol Wedding: Sara & Ben

cabo-wedding-planner-5

My first contact was with the very energetic Ben, which is not something that happens very often!  It was very clear to me early on that this was a groom who wanted his bride to be happy, and away we went!  Ben had some fantastic food ideas and clearly wanted a big party with his nearest and dearest.  When it came to designing flowers and décor however, Sara was a planners dream!  She wanted simple and elegant with touches honoring Ben’s Jewish background, attention to detail and soft romantic lighting a must!

cabo-wedding-planner-3

Sara’s fairy-princess, gold sequined wedding gown was the highlight of the day, along with the tears in Ben’s eyes as he saw her walk down the aisle! The traditional “breaking of the glass” was met with a loud cheer and on to the party we went!

cabo-wedding-planner-1

My favorite part of working with this couple was their attitude towards their wedding day, relaxed, spontaneous and clearly about love!  Surprise “truth” games from the Maid of Honor and Best Man, a first dance song to die for (Sara Smile by Hall and Oats), and Cabo del Sol’s food that never fails all combined to make this wedding something very, very special.

A Memorable Private Villa Wedding in Los Cabos: Tiffany + Jared

Private-Villa-wedding-Cabo-San-Lucas-01

Tiffany and Jared wanted their Los Cabos destination wedding and party to be one that friends and family would remember forever.  Their goal was to host a wedding celebration with minimum fuss, tasty yet casual food and a lot of fun cocktails!  Jared’s area of expertise was food, and together we created a fun, “taco-bar” style menu with refreshing mojitos and lots of cerveza!  Inspired by Mexican flavors, guests raved about Tiffany and Jared’s wedding menu during (and after!) the wedding!

Private-Villa-wedding-Cabo-San-Lucas-15

As when planning a wedding in any private villa designed primarily as a home and not an event space, we made sure to pay special attention to the flow of the event, using the villa’s descending terraces during different segments of the evening to maximize space.

Private-Villa-wedding-Cabo-San-Lucas-01a

Tiffany’s wedding color palette was inspired by soft mint green and natural wood tones to play off the surrounding landscape.  We combined rectangular fruitwood tables with lace runners and circular tables dressed in flowing mint green.  With touches of candle light, rustic birdcages, succulents and sand, the reception setting was stunning, especially when set against the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean.

Private-Villa-wedding-Cabo-San-Lucas-02

By the end of the evening there was not a dry shirt in the house, as guests took a midnight swim to cool off!  What an amazing wedding with lots of laughter, shared with an amazing group of people!  We can’t wait to see Tiffany and Jared again!

Yvonne knew from the beginning that she wanted a white on white color scheme with touches of blush and champagne, perfect for a seaside wedding.

To her vintage glamour theme, we added a little sparkle with a vintage pearl cake table overlay and ample candlelight to create a very romantic atmosphere for the couple and their guests.

One of the most creative wedding hairstyles we have seen in a very long while, Yvonne channeled old Hollywood screen stars, with pinned curls and a stunning veil.
