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

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

A Love Less Ordinary: Jennifer & David 

hacienda cabo wedding jennifer david

We met almost 11 years ago in college. Got married in November 21st of 2013 in a court house and now planning a celebration in Cabo on November 22nd of 2015 with our loved ones. David and I would hardly consider ourselves traditional and we did things a little backwards but it works for us! 🙂

This cute introduction was a part of Jenn’s first email to me, inquiring about helping me plan and make come true their wedding celebration in Cabo San Lucas.  At that moment I knew, that planning Jennifer & David’s wedding would not only be very fun, but also very special.  We connected immediately and started the planning process about 10 months before the D day.

Both Jennifer and David are an amazing couple.  They are beautiful, loving, friendly, intelligent, and very busy.  Jennifer is a design consultant,  and David is a web developer, he designs, programs and market websites for different types of industries. With their design background, I knew their wedding decor will be beautiful as they both have an excellent taste. They are foodies, they love traveling, yoga, golf, and their 3 dogs, Ella, Bambi, and Pumpkin.

Since their destination wedding was in November, they chose Mexico inspired autumn colors for their wedding flowers and decor. Dark green, red, purple, orange and yellow were some of the colors we used for the flowers decorations. Paired with her stunning white lace dress and blue colors of Cabo sky and sea, it looked wonderful.

Congratulations once again dear Jennifer & David!  It is my honor to be part of your beach wedding celebration in Cabo San Lucas,

Love,
Fatima

Kellie & Russ’s Hacienda Cabo Wedding

Hacienda-Cabo-wedding-momentos-los-cabos_0017
Kellie and Russ are a beautiful couple from San Francisco.  We immediately felt the connection on our fist call, and I am so happy they chose me as their destination wedding planner!  They were looking for a private, intimate wedding celebration ocean side in Cabo San Lucas with their dearest ones, and together with the recommended wedding vendors we made their dreams come true!

I love how both Kellie and Russ knew exactly how they wanted their best day ever to be like.  An intimate celebration of their love at the beach with the Land’s End and Sea of Cortez as a backdrop, and a starlight dinner on the beach, accompanied by the sound of the waves and music to dance to.  Their color theme was elegant white and sunny yellow, and we made sure all the details were matching.  The florist Lola from Florenta Los Cabos did a beautiful job with the bouquet and florals for the wedding ceremony and reception.  The team at Hacienda Cocina created a delicious menu and wedding cake.

Kellie and Russ’s wedding day in Cabo was beautiful and sunny, and the night starry, just as they imagined.  It was a beautiful and unforgettable wedding celebration, and I am honored to be part of their day.
