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!

Kristen & Bobby’s Romantic Destination Wedding in Los Cabos

cabo-wedding-planner-fatima-momentos-los-cabos_0015

Every time I look at Kristen and Bobby’s wedding photos, I remember their beautiful wedding day in Los Cabos, and all the laughs and tears of joy we shared on their special day.  I have to say that Kristen and Bobby are a brilliant couple; not only they are both extremely good looking, but they are also incredibly kind and beautiful people as well.  Bobby is a real gentleman, like the ones we dream about from the classic movies, and I loved how much love and attention he has for Kristen.

Kristen and Bobby contacted me two months before their wedding day, and three days later I was already hosting them in Cabo San Lucas for a site inspection.  We were on the same page since the very beginning, and I was so honored and happy to be able to help them make their dream come true!  We found a beautiful private villa for their memorable intimate wedding in Puerto Los Cabos, called “Paraiso Perduto,” or Paradise Lost.

Besides making sure that their wedding day will go as planned (and dreamed), Kristen and Bobby were mostly concerned that their guests would have a fantastic day and enjoy their stay in Los Cabos. They prepared a lot of details for their guests during their stay, and everyone was enjoying greatly their stay and Kristen and Bobby’s beautiful wedding day.

For their wedding day we organized different musicians; a soft guitar for their ceremony, a trio of Mexican musicians for their cocktail hour and dinner. Before the dinner all the guests went to the beach to watch the sunset, and celebrate Kristen and Bobby with sparklers. Afterwards, we continued with a fire show and a fun karaoke finale.

Much love always to my beautiful bride & groom! You will be in my hearts forever!

A Dream Wedding Come True in Cabo San Lucas for Katherine & Amir

sunset da mona lisa wedding

I’ll always remember planning Katherine and Amir’s wedding weekend in Cabo San Lucas.  They are such a lovely couple, they worked together seamlessly and truly dedicated to creating the most memorable day ever for them as well as for their family and loved ones, who traveled from all around the world to stand beside them when they said: “I do.”

The eight months of planning went by very quickly – both Kat and Amir participated in the planning process, they knew exactly what they were looking for, and chose the wedding vendors who suited their style the most.  We had a very fun process of choosing the location, and our favorite was of course the food tasting (not to mention the stunning sunset views of the Sea of Cortez and the Land’s End from Sunset da Mona Lisa restaurant)!

For their three-day wedding celebration, we organized a rehearsal dinner at a lovely Mexican restaurant Tres Gallos, for a wedding day location we chose Sunset da Mona Lisa, and the next day we went for a boat tour with all the invitees, and thus continued the celebrations. Their wedding day was very emotional – it was a day when two very special people joined their lives, when two cultures united, in a place where two oceans join as one.

Organic and Garden Inspired Cabo Wedding for Sarah & Devin

sunset-da-mona-lisa-intimate-cabo-wedding-momentos-los-cabos_0021

When you know how you’d like your wedding day to look like, you don’t need an entire year to plan it (even if it’s a Cabo San Lucas destination wedding!). Just ask Sarah and Devin, and they’ll happily tell you the story of how we planned their beautiful intimate wedding in only 3 months!  After 7.5 years together, a house, some traveling and a puppy, Devin finally decided to surprise Sarah and popped the question during a pumpkin carving competition. She said YES! and decided on tying the knot down in Mexico.

Sarah and Devin imagined an intimate wedding in sunny Cabo San Lucas for a company of 10 guests.  I loved their vision and we started working on their ideas immediately. We worked together with a team of local wedding vendors, that could grasp and make come true their vision and style perfectly.  I loved how Devin’s sister Blair’s contributed a lot to the style and feel of the wedding through her company Blair Nadenau Millinery, with many wedding details like bridal veils and a belt for the wedding dress, Sarah’s hair crown, hair adornments for both moms, and other details.

The wedding decor that Sarah & Devin imagined was very intimate, garden like, organic an natural. Lola from Florenta Flower Design designed a very original altar for them with original planters, aromatic plants, ficus leaves and other greenery. Devin’s sister Blair made another surprise for the happy couple, and she decorated their wedding table with the couple’s portraits. I can’t miss to mention the cutest cake topper, which was a pair of cats, namely both Sarah and Devin love cats, as well as personalized tequila bottles, their wedding favors.

After the cake cutting and dinner, the newlyweds and their guests boarded the limousine and lived on happily ever after!

Sarah & Devin’s wedding day was a day full of love and celebration, and for me personally it was an honor to be part of their special day.

Kyle & Jordan’s Sunny Destination Wedding in Cabo San Lucas

celebrity wedding planner cabo san lucas

NFL Player Kyle Rudolph, tight end for the Minnesota Vikings, first met Jordan Nine their sophomore year of college at the University of Notre Dame.  They felt connected from their first encounter — Jordan’s last name happened to be Kyle’s football number throughout high school and college — and when friends commented that they were meant to be, the two couldn’t help but feel the same. After five years together, Kyle decided to pop the question in October 2015, and their wedding was set to happen in sunny Los Cabos on February 13, 2016.

“We absolutely love Cabo and had been to dinner at Hacienda Cocina y Cantina while on vacation two years ago.  We loved the location, the view, food, and how close it is to everything. It was the perfect place for our wedding.

Planning with Jordan was a breeze, we did it all in 4 months and the final result was spectacular!  We set up the wedding ceremony by the main pool and with Land’s End as a beautiful backdrop. The cocktail hour was at the pool area as well, where guests enjoyed ocean views and delicious local cuisine. Afterward, the party moved inside Hacienda Cocina & Cantina for the reception, where guests found rectangular tables topped with bright clusters of flowers. Bold-hued roses and greenery were arranged in antique-inspired gold vessels for a look that felt both formal and fun. Glittering gold table numbers completed the look. The menu was inspired by Cabo with delicious fajitas and signature margaritas.

One of my favorite moments at the wedding, besides being there for the happy couple and helping them make their dreams come true, was the first look with Jordan’s father and brother. it was such a precious moment, neither of them could hide their emotions and tears.

Much love to you Jordan & Kyle, and thank you for having me be part of your big day!
Love,
Fatima
