Kaitlin & Anton’s Unforgettable Wedding in Los Cabos

private-villa-cabo-destination-wedding-momentos-los-cabos_0001

A ‘happy ever after’ always starts with a ‘once upon a time,’ and Katie & Anton’s story will make you fall in love with love stories all over again. Their story goes something like this:

The Day We Met

Hers: I drove home with stars in my eyes. Apparently when I got there I immediately told my mom about what I’d done and how the experience was all together. But the only thing I remember telling her was, “Mom, there’s this really cute guy who works there. His name is Anton.”
His: There was a cute intern that walked in the door. She was funny and had an amazing smile. She had brown hair that swept across her face. She was too young to have a crush on her, but I guess I still did.

The First Kiss

Hers:  About half way down the path I said to myself, ” …” – well I can’t actually type what I said to myself because I am supposed to be a “lady.” I ran back to his door and knocked – it surprisingly opened rather quickly. I grabbed him and laid it on him. 
YES – ladies and gentlemen, I kissed him FIRST!
His: It must have only really been 30 seconds when I heard a knock at the door. I thought she may have left something and this was the perfect opportunity to redeem myself. So, I opened the door, and before I had a chance to do anything, she laid one on me. As excited as I was to be kissing her, later I would realize she had stolen the first kiss credit. Something that still haunts me to this day.

The First “Official” Date

Hers: He took the ring and said, “Let’s see how good your acting skills are.” He got down on one knee, I screamed in shock, and we proceeded to take pictures with many many rando’s who seriously thought we were engaged – one lady even cried. It was hilarious and so much fun!!!
His: She said yes, and we kissed. Even though it was fake, it was the beginning of our relationship. A moment I will always remember.

The Proposal

Hers: He came up to me to take a picture, whispered in my ear “Remember 5 years ago?” I replied yes and then he got down on one knee. I blacked out.  I couldn’t hear (or can’t remember hearing anything) and couldn’t see anything but him. It was the strangest, yet coolest experience I’ve ever had. Tears were streaming (yes from us both), and I’d said YES – for real this time! A magical re-creation of our first date. I couldn’t have dreamed of a more meaningful moment.
His: Refer to “The First Official Date” … but with a big a** rock.

The Wedding

Kaitlin and Anton’s love story could not have been more perfect. Both the bride and groom dreamed of a wedding on a beach, and so we began to plan a wedding that would write another wonderful chapter to their story, located on a beautiful beach of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Kaitlin and her family already nurtured a love affair for Los Cabos and its most amazing yearly warm weather. I met Katie’s mother and sister a few months before and was enchanted with the attention to detail and creativity that Kaitlin had for every aspect of the special day to come! I met Anton on their second site visit, and I immediately saw the unbelievable connection and passion they had for one another. Designing the wedding with them was like being splashed with color and happiness in a sea of spontaneous excitement. I was hooked.

The wedding day was purely and perfectly breathtaking – everything we planned it to be. Kaitlin’s hand-painted invitations and signs greeted their friends and families one by one. Being the first week of July, the crystal oceans of Cabo crisped the air with freshness to complement the thrills in the air. Their ‘I do’ was a moment I will never forget. Two wooden windows adorned with white and soft pink flowers, locked with green stems, symbolized the wedding arch and framed an everlasting moment. Kaitlin, ever beautiful, looked stunning in her laced wedding gown and a vail that trained down to the sand. Anton, impeccably dressed, wore a smile that was both contagious and heart-stirring all the same.

Varieties of delicious hors d’oeuvres kicked of the day’s celebrations as well as an assortment of Polaroid blanks and ‘message in a bottle’ cards welcomed the guests. Romance and happiness filled the air even as the sun started to fall. It was then that the soft orange and yellow sunset reflected on the stones and palm trees of Casa Marcela, that the bride and groom waltzed to their first dance as a husband and wife.

A daughter-father choreographed dance brought heart-warming smiles to everyone’s faces as the evening soon came to a close. Sparklers lit up the starry sky illuminating the bride and groom finishing the chapter of a day they will always remember and never forget.

Roxanna and Ryan’s Destination Wedding in Los Cabos

cabo-del-sol-wedding-momentos-los-cabos_0078

Today, October 14, is a very special day for us, since today we are celebrating a 1 year wedding anniversary of Roxanna and Ryan. We remember their wedding day in Los Cabos as it was only yesterday, so we wanted to share some photos and their love story with you!

Their love story began in college and years later they decided that living life together was the best way to be. Orchestrated with the help of his best man, Ryan organized the surprise proposal in the crispy mountain trails of Portland, Oregon, where he promised Roxanna a wonderful forever. Always passionate, the bride and the groom decided that they would marry where the ocean is as blue as the sky and the sand is as soft as silk: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

We started planning their wedding about a year before the chosen date, and the bride and the groom to be immediately fell in love with the location at Cabo del Sol and our team, just as we fell in love with them and their always positive energy. From their engagement photo session with Pink Palm Photo to their menu tasting, welcome party, and finally the wedding day, every moment was filled with thrills and joy. I think they were just as excited as we were for their special day to come true perfectly, just as they imagined it to be.

On their wedding day, everything went as we planned, and it was even better than we all imagined. Roxanna and Ryan always remained attentive to their friends and family, making sure they are having a wonderful time and enjoying the celebrations in beautiful Mexico. Roxanna and Ryan’s wedding day was unforgettable. We loved special details and traditions they incorporated in the celebration. For example, as a symbol of new beginnings, incorporating their past and giving it a place of honor in their new life; of sweeping away the old and welcoming the new, Ryan jumped the broom hand in hand with Roxanna. This magical African tradition kicked off the night’s celebrations with dance, laughter and everlasting joy. True to our joined vision, the wedding was magical, memorable and beautiful.

Congratulations to the our wonderful bride and groom, Roxanna and Ryan, on their wedding anniversary! May you have many more years to come!
Love and best wishes from Cabo,
Fatima & Momentos Weddings & Events team

Danielle & David’s Cabo Destination Wedding

hacienda-cocina-cabo-wedding-momentos-los-cabos-01

Every wedding is unique and unforgettable, and Danielle and David made their wedding day all that more special here in Cabo San Lucas because of who they are. From their first wedding arrangement visit till’ their first sunset as husband and wife, Danielle and David brought smiles and laughter to our faces.  They are this amazingly fun, joyous and happy couple whose energy is contagious, and that made their wedding day just the same.

Danielle, with her exciting charm, helped orient the wedding and every detail was accounted for to make it absolutely perfect. David, every second a gentleman, charmed us with his good humor and made us swoon with his ever-lasting attention to Danielle’s happiness.  The celebration was held at the beach where soft Cabo sand greeted the happy couple and the guests. Selections of colorful flowers, such as jasmines, marigolds, dahlias, cosmos, and roses displayed the liveliness of Danielle and David.  In the midst of white, splashes of color from red undertones to the softest of pinks contrasted the light blues of the sky and ocean.  It was a sight to behold.

It was no surprise to hear that they loved their destination wedding at Hacienda Cocina and that their friends and family enjoyed it all the more.  There wasn’t a second where their guests weren’t laughing or dancing, even after all the exquisite food that was served in the evening.  Of course, the margaritas were also always on deck.  At night, strings of lights and candles gave the night a magical glow, as heart cut out paper garlands embellished the ambience.

Danielle and David’s friends and family celebrated the day with the bride and groom with joy in their hearts and smiles on their faces.  It was a wedding to remember and an unforgettable evening.  It was a fortune to witness their special day and a blessing to have been part of their wedding day team.

Much love to Danielle & David always,

Nikita & Moji’s Hindu Destination Wedding in Los Cabos

hindu-destination-wedding-cabo-san-lucas-momentos-los-cabos_0001

Do you believe in love stories? Nikita and Moji’s story is a beautiful love story, and a wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, makes it all the better.

“We met at a Hindu summer camp when we were very young. We started dating in May of 2005. We have been together since and lived together for almost eight years. We have been through our ups and downs and have consistently supported each other through our relationship. He asked me to marry him April 4, 2014, in Kauai, Hawaii. The proposal was magical. We took a helicopter tour of the Na Pali coast in Kauai and landed at Jurassic Falls where he proposed to me. The reason we have on blue booties in the proposal picture is because the land is untouched in that area of Kauai so we could not even walk on it! I am so excited to marry him finally. We have been together for over a decade and are high school sweethearts.”

It was this touching story that gave a unique zest to Nikita and Moji’s special day. The bride and groom’s families helped plan a beautiful and colorful traditional Hindu wedding together with us. A delicious lunch at Flora’s Farm by the groom’s family and a delicious dinner by the bride’s parents tipped off the wedding day in their honor just a day before the wedding.

It was an absolute dream to see a wedding that embraced every single aspect of Hindu culture, from Nikita’s traditional mehndi (henna) to Moji’s baraat (a wedding kick-off dance by the groom and his family) from the hotel to the ceremony. Even more magical was the milni, the unity of the two families. The bride’s parents welcomed Moji with the aarti, placing red powder in his head, followed by the exchange of the flower garlands between the bride and the groom – promising their forever love.

Every detail tailored to the bride and groom’s traditional culture… except for the cuisine. Mexican cookies and horchata greeted their guests at the start of the celebration, and an exquisite dinner sealed the day’s palate delights. Nikita and Moji entertained their guests with an exhilarating fire show, while fire flares and sparkles illuminated the evening sky. It was a magical and unforgettable today for the families and for us.

Yolanda & Allen’s Cabo Destination Wedding

romantic-cabo-wedding_0017

Sometimes in your life when you think you are ready for something or someone, the Lord knows better!
He started out as an acquaintance, who knew he would become my best friend!
All of our lives we have been within arms reach of each other for many years.
His mom taught at my grammar school… but it was not time for us to meet!
He lived less than a mile away from me for many years… yet it was not time…
We frequented the same restaurants, were on the same blocks and walked the same paths that I once did as a teenager… but still it was not time…
Who would have known we would be in the state of Ohio at the same time… but unfortunately the Lord knew it was not time….
He almost purchased a house right next door from my parents home… and unbelievably it still was not time!
Then he purchased the very same building I resided in… Who would imagine that it still was not time…
I moved out… because it was not the right time.
Then Life threw me a curve ball and life’s lessons prepared me to meet him and become his best friend, soul mate and through God’s Grace, his WIFE!

See, the destiny knew, even if we didn’t… that finally it was about TIME!

– Yolanda

Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters. And although their paths were crossing throughout all their lives, they did not meet until it was the right time for Yolanda and Allen to find each other and fall in love. This beautiful love story above was written by our bride, Yolanda herself.

Yolanda was the sweetest bride, and with Allen the make the most adorable couple. She chose her venue and contacted me to help her make her wedding dreams come true. She did not know Los Cabos, so I helped her with suggestions, local wedding providers, and took care of all the planning and logistics so that her day would be as she imagined.  We were planning their wedding for almost a year, and I loved the entire process.  Yolanda was always so friendly and nice; she had a clear idea of what she wanted to achieve with her wedding decor, how she wanted her guests to feel, and how their entire wedding experience would be.  Almost 100 guests from Chicago came to celebrate Yolanda and Allen’s love in Los Cabos.  They all loved the location and the entire wedding weekend, which included a warm-up welcome party, and a bonfire at the beach one day before the wedding.

On her wedding day, Yolanda was relaxed and calm.  Everything she dreamt of her wedding day to be, was becoming reality. The beach wedding ceremony, the decor, beautiful flowers, and a dance night to remember. Their fairytale-like wedding day concluded with magical fireworks.

Much love to them forever!
