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!

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,

Kellie & Russ’s Hacienda Cabo Wedding

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.

Monica & Lukas’s Destination Wedding at Pitahayas, Cabo del Sol


Love makes the world go around! I love this saying, and Monica and Lukas’s love is living proof.  They met at a university in Mexico, fell in love, and decided they want to spend the rest of their lives together.

Their love is so big that not even the hurricane could stop their wedding plans!  They were planning their wedding for May 2015, but the hotel that they booked to host their wedding at first was damaged so badly that the repairs wouldn’t be finished by their wedding date.  So we started working on a new solution between Los Cabos and Sweden to make their day the best day ever!

Monica and Lukas trusted me and my recommendations for their new wedding location completely, and I am so grateful for that.  They visited Cabo San Lucas for a site inspection twice, first to choose the location and vendors, and second time – for the most delicious part of the wedding planning – food and cake tasting at Pitahayas restaurant in Cabo del Sol community.

Monica and Lukas are an amazing couple, and I am thankful that they chose me to plan their wedding.  They are beautiful, loving and friendly, and such was their wedding day!  Their friends and families accompanied them for the celebration of their wedding day from La Paz, Sweden and many other parts of the world, and enjoyed the celebrations until the end.

Monica and Lukas’s Cabo destination wedding turned out just as they dreamed of, and I dare say even more special because of everything they went through because of the hurricane aftermath. I’m glad they still decided to continue with their wedding plans in Los Cabos, and support the destination. They enjoyed their day a lot, and I’m so happy to be part of their special day.

Trish & Ernesto’s Romantic Destination Wedding in Cabo San Lucas


What can be more romantic than celebrating your love at a beautiful beach, with the sounds of the ocean and a starry sky with closest family and friends?  No wonder that Trish and Ernesto chose Cabo San Lucas as the place where they will take one step forward and unite their love in marriage in front of their loved ones.

Trish and I worked together over the distance for almost one year, planning their beautiful dream wedding. The destiny had it that Trish and Ernesto, from Hayward, California, were invited to a wedding at Capella Pedregal (The Resort at Pedregal) a couple of months ago, when they were still engaged. The destination, the little fishing town, the most delicious food and the friendliest people convinced them that Cabo San Lucas is the place where they too would like to get wed. She contacted me, and we started working on making her dreams come true.

Trish imagined a romantic, casual wedding, with some flowers and lots of candles, Papel Picado and other details. With Ernesto, they prepared details like menus, place cards, table numbers, and Trish herself made her wedding bouquet and boutonnieres with silk flowers, which I loved!

We set round dance floor at the beach, which was a hit as the wedding party didn’t leave the dance floor until the final hour. The entire wedding party had a great energy, and the bride and groom had a wonderful wedding day, just like they imagined it to be. Hacienda Cocina team provided a top service and catering as always, and it was wonderful to work with the entire team of providers for making Trish & Ernesto’s wedding a dream come true!
